Title: The Stars Below

Meanwhile, the Man is standing on a hill, impassively staring down at a small village in rural Nebraska. Coming behind him, Brigadier Unthank (Brad Pitt), Yellowstone’s perfect enforcer, perplexedly shouts “Inspector!” Confusion occurs consecutively as bombs drop on the village, killing many.

‘(unless this would add more than ten, in which case the Scripter may only add ten).’
Also, I was under the impression that awards won was what counted rather than nominated?

‘should count the number of awards that the Actor has won or been nominated for’

So, rewrite with +10 I guess.

Title: A Pitt

Hero looks around.  A pit.  Deep one.  And a Pitt.  Annoying one.  And 9 other targets.  Also annoying.  Hero pushes them all into the pit by bashing them with the Empire State.  He then takes a note that fell out of Pitt’s pocket…

Actually, Kevan, it only says that the name SHOULD be mentioned.

Heh.

@DC’s title: Indeed, nothing like a good TPK eh.

I’m reverting the actors list now, I’ve had enough fun. Not much Angelina though.

Title: Strife

The view zooms up to and inside the plane that dropped the bombs. There’s a row on board; the co-pilot (Brad Pitt) seize the controls by breaking the pilot’s neck, and the rest of the crew join in the scuffle, twelve falling out of the bomb bay to their deaths.

for  CONTINUITY!

Rule 2.3: “...The rest of this comment should explain which Scenes need to be dropped, and why…”

Darth, please call continuity again including names of scenes you think should be cut, and reasons, I don’t see this first one as valid.

Devenger:

04-02-2009 18:12:09 UTC

Plus, you need to use an AGAINST symbol, not a FOR…

Kevan:

04-02-2009 18:13:07 UTC

It’s only “should”, so you could call continuity with a blank rationale if you felt like it.

It must start with an AGAINST icon, though, so I assume this is some sort of joke admiration of the fine continuity in this act.

Klisz:

04-03-2009 20:44:50 UTC

I assumed it was obvious that is was a joke.

Devenger:

That’s enough Brad Pitt for now I think.
