Lying_Christine: thewritershaven.online/thread/2977/scriptwriting-advice-thread so I just created a thread for Script Writing Advice, this is the same as Graphic Design Advice. No one is obligated to answer a question, but if they choose to help, or if you have Qs Jul 21, 2021 17:08:24 GMT
CooksMeCoco: "Clear" is... fine. It obv has nothing on Scream 2's "you're forgetting one thing about Billy Loomis - I fucking killed him" but it's prob a mid-tier one-liner. You could do much worse as far as inspo is concerned. Jul 21, 2021 16:54:11 GMT *
HeWhoRemains: Kinda similar to "Clear" from Scream 4 in a way Jul 21, 2021 16:17:50 GMT
HeWhoRemains: Okay, so they're not completely unnecessary, unless they don't fit the tone of the character. In this instance, (the character) isn't really trying to be funny, it's just a cute line that foreshadows the events to come in the very near future. Jul 21, 2021 16:16:56 GMT *
#BlackWidowForever: Like Greg said, In my opinion it depends on the character heavily. If they haven’t been witty all script and suddenly pull one out especially it’s like “Ok this was soooo out of character.” Not every “badass” needs to have a one line. Jul 21, 2021 15:23:57 GMT
#BlackWidowForever: It really depends on the story. Sometimes they add an extra oomph. And sometimes they kill the tone of a script and movie completely. Jul 21, 2021 15:22:39 GMT
CooksMeCoco: When they're well-executed they're cute. But for every "Feast on this, motherfucker" there are 10 that are more on par with "Say hi to mommy........ in hell!", so it can be a libbit risky. Jul 21, 2021 13:35:22 GMT
beta material: Depends on the movie/genre/etc. Sometimes they're necessary; other times they kill the mood & read as "trying hard to be badass, thus revealing how out of touch the writer is." :camillestglasses: Jul 21, 2021 12:21:59 GMT
HeWhoRemains: Just curious, are "one liners" frowned upon or a welcomed piece of dialogue? Just trying to see the majority consensus lol. Jul 21, 2021 7:25:28 GMT
