ScriptShadow published a positive review of Jon Spaihts' Shadow 19 screenplay.
"Shadow 19 is a gunmetal paean to id Software and cyberpunk," writes reviewer Roger Balfour. "A hymn to boys (and girls, are you out there?) who spent many a night playing Doom, or any videogame, really, and you were so engrossed in the virtual world the next time you looked out the window it was already dawn. It is a love letter to fans of smart and ambitious science fiction. Not sci-fi. Yes, I say 'sci-fi' pejoratively, because to use the parlance of Harlan Ellison, there is a difference. And it is a felony against all people who care about story to not know the difference.
"This is science fiction done right. And I dare say it...I dare say it. The Alien prequel is in good hands." [Full story]- ScriptShadow. Comment on this Scoop (0)
