I know it's ok to have differdnt opinions of films. People's tastes are different.

I suppose the real point of my post is 'what's wrong with everyone else?'. It strikes me that IT is a bad film....

No, you shouldn't show Jack building the fire. But you also shouldn't write 'Jack has built a fire' if you can show that Jack has built a fire. How will the viewer of the finished film know that Jack...

Why did you use and example of 50 years, when that's quite wildly different to the 10 years you were actually asking about?

I'd say don't capitalize.

I'm not too sure on this, but if your script makes it quite clear that there is a 50 year jump, then it should be obvious to a reader that the character will be 50 years...

It's not even close to what? Is what on purpose? As it stands, your reply is probably less helpful than a simple "no".

Just today I've watched 2 films made to look like very old VHS tapes. One was 20 mins, the other was 30 mins. I didn't like it. Both were no-budget slasher films, trying to emulate the 80's/90's SOV...
