The Best and Worst Scripts on Hollywood's Black List

More
Hollywood's famous Black List -- a listing of the hottest as-yet-unproduced screenplays, voted on by industry executives -- was released today, and as always there are some scripts that seem exciting and others that seem... less so. Let's take a look at the best and worst of the list, our judging criteria based solely on the logline descriptions. (And leaving out things that already being made, like Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained and Father Daughter Time, which Matt Damon is slated to direct.) Again, we haven't read any of these (but we might in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!), but what is the movie business if not making snap judgements about things based on very little information?

Read the full story at The Atlantic Wire, and get the background on the Black List from Scott Meslow's recent TheAtlantic.com piece.
