A movie script has a pretty straight forward job. It exists entirely to move an audience through the story in a cohesive and, most importantly, interesting manner. Think of the movies in your own personal vault of classics. I would bet good money that just about every one of them has a palpable rhythm to the story, a cadence to the narrative that makes the fiction seem fluid and natural. It always astounds me when this piece of the film-making puzzle, the one that is ostensibly easiest and cheapest to refine, is mishandled as badly as it was in this year’s Batman Vs. Superman.
