    Very bad scripts (this wasn't that) even in the hands of great directors don't work (See: Ladykillers). And a great script doesn't always make a great film (See: The Road).  

    ZD30 was better than I feared but it still just didn't work foe ne.  When you look at something like hurtlocker there you have a solid B script but A+ direction and it works.  This is more like a C- script and A+ direction for me.  

    the films I am in ah of most combine a fantastic script with great direction.  

    not saying zd30 was terrible, just not my cup of tea.  So come Oscar night I will be pulling for Armour, which is the rare A+ script and A+ direction.   just my opinion.
