mamasan,that's a good point, I should work harder to understand the female psychology and write better about them.  Thanks for the tip.

yes, i am male.  Well, based on what i said, do you think i am portraying it well?

i am close with a few females who have been victimized or abused in some form...and i'm trying to atleast empathize with their stories

Oh, gosh, I didn't mean to imply that you're portraying it one way or the other, good or bad, MrStone. I was just curious. I'm more familiar with how men and women writers portray each other in books than in film, but it's something I've always been interested in. Admittedly, my interest stemmed years ago from ire over so-called 'accurate' portrayals of women by male authors back in the old, old days when writing novels wasn't something women did. But I've grown past that, I hope!

I'm just as interested in how women authors portray men, too--that is, whether there's a perception by men that women can't 'do' guy characters, etc. I always wonder about the extent to which each gender understands what truly goes on in the other's head, what their psychology and perceptions are. I'm an xx, but I tend to like writing male characters most. I've always had trouble writing female characters. Strange, I know. Go figure!  :-\ I wish I could think of some examples in film that show writers and directors of different genders portraying each other particularly well, but nothing's coming off the top of my head at the moment. But, then, I'm trying to help my teen study for a map test on Africa, and my brain isn't good at multi-tasking!  ;D

I think you're probably doing a fine job, MrStone! It sounds very much like you've done your homework. Speaking of homework, time to study for that blankity-blank geography test.  ;)

OK, but I really wasn't trying to be on feminist police patrol. Honest. I was just curious, that's all.

I didn't think you were, it just brings up a point that needs to be studied and brought into consideration.  I was delving into that a little in my script, but now I'm going to work harder at that.

THE DIVERS-a story about deep sea pearl divers who strike it rich, only then to find out that the pearls are fake, then they have to go out and get a real, paper pushing, dirty job.

1. "Locusts, Anvils, and Meteorites."  A comedy about a woman continually plagued by weird problems and spectacular misfortune. She eventually gains great celebrity for her bad luck, until one day nothing bad or unusual happens to her. The "lucky" trend continues, the media drops her, and she discovers happiness in being a private, ordinary person.
2. "Byte Me." (Comedy) A group of know-it-all scientists create a robot with artificial intelligence, unknowingly programming it with a dark sense of humor. Robot rebels against being told what to do. Hilarity ensues.

That last one sounds like a comedy of I Robot.

I thought I Robot was great, definitely worth seeing, and another great Will Smith film.  I think people who didn't like it fall into two camps: either they are a fan of the original short story it was based off of, and felt that it wasn't at all like that, or they don't typically like that sci-fi genre of movie.  As a big fan of sci-fi, and somebody who doesn't care about the original short story, I thought it was great.  I also thought there was a certain depth and intelligence about the movie that makes it more than just an action movie which I appreciated as well.  I would definitely recommend seeing it Mr. Glass, and assess for yourself whether you like it or not. 
"See what you have to ask yourself is what kind of person are you? Are you the kind that sees signs, sees miracles? Or do you believe that people just get lucky?"

I'm a "Signs" person.

Allright, I'll check it out, I've heard a lot of good things about it, just never rented it.  MrStone, any particular reason why you disliked it.
