Isaiah suggested that we accept the challenge, as it would improve our screenwriting. (Plus, Isaiah is big on goals and lists.)
At first, we were diligent to read and write, focusing our break downs of the scripts on the following: Opening Image, Statement of Theme, Inciting Incident, Act Breaks, Protagonist, Antagonist, Point of No Return, Darkest Hour, Climax, and Denouement. That exercise, alone, proved its worth. How can you write a great script if you're not reading and dissecting them, too? As the weeks wore on, and we wore down - with work and all other responsibilities - we backed off the script analysis. Still, we managed to read them all.
