Slap Shot was directed by George Roy Hill, but the film really belongs to script writer Nancy Dowd and actor, Paul Newman. As a UK script consultant and script writer for hire I’m really pleased to see a female script writer on an American sports film which is heavily devoted to the male psyche.

As a UK script consultant and script writer for hire re-watching The Dead Zone (1983) is a great reminder of how simple some great plots are, and how storytelling sometimes works best when things are kept uncomplicated

Quick Change (1990)

Bill Murray and Howard Franklin’s Quick Change (1990) is one of those lost films from the 90s which is rarely seen now but has grown into one of the best comedies of the 90s, even if very few people have seen it or remember it.
