Anyone who knows me can attest that I am a huge movie buff. So I was delighted to stumble across a great site called Editing Room whereby the host, Rod Hilton, hilariously rewrites the scripts of major studio releases. He calls them "abridged scripts" and they serve to mock the contexts and real-world meanings of the films. In fact, many aspects of a given film are up for criticism, and Hilton "takes a piss" of just about everyone (including actors, the dialogue, the director, etc.) so he is quite fair in his scathing and witty critiques. This is more than mere parody, and is a worthwhile comment on what passes as artistic greatness at the corner of Hollywood and Vine.
