Screenplay Writing Tip #3

Please work on the 3rd act. If you don't apparently, it will turn into one big montage.
I hate montages, especially when they make up for a poorly written 3rd act, don't you?

Case in point:
An Education
was a great film up until the 3rd act... a montage 3rd act?!!!
Same with Ingorious Bastards.  After one of the all time  best opening scenes ever, it tanked in the rushed, montage, 3rd act. Have some respect for your audience, please-
make the 3rd act as interesting as the opening scene...and by all means, if you want anyone to read past page 10, make the opening scene sensational!
