Today I’m back at home in Vegas. Today was a momentum day. Possibly the least exciting day towards your dream. Possibly the most important. Curious what a momentum day is?
Today I reviewed The Peaceful Warrior. Tony Robbins says about the film, “This film will impact the course of your life forever.” This film was based on true events, which is different from based on a true story. I’m not really sure what the difference is. I love the end when it is coming to [...]

Of all the scripts I’ve studied, this one did the best at the box office which was a surprise. I’m looking for differences from the early version of the script and the [...]
Home in Vegas now. My DVDs I ordered with my Amazon Gift Certificate came in while I was away. So I studied Thelma and Louise as suggested in Syd’s book. You can check out my blog (Day 93) and see my live notes from what I studied. I was surprised
Traveling back from Idaho I finished reading the Blind Side script. Wow. I got emotional again. Well, maybe that’s not a big surprise, but it happened. In this video I mention another example of a brilliant writing in this script. There is also a structure point and well as a change in the final film. [...]
