Scriptin' fools!

There are two great sources for movie scripts.

One is Drew's Script-O-Rama, for actual movie scripts, movie transcripts and scripts for unmade movies (and TV programs as well). I'm not sure about the legality of it all, but I do remember grabbing one of the Batman scripts (Batman Forever, I think), and... wow... the movie actually made sense from a character arc point of view! Amazing! Never thought it would be possible! Definitely the first place to go for finding these things.

However, far more entertainingly, is The Editing Room. This has "Abridged" scripts (you may recall the one for The Phantom Menace which circulated humour areas), but there are tons of them, and they all make for great reading. Note that he has no concern for spoilers, so if you want to avoid them, make sure you've seen the movies before reading these script versions. Check it out for brilliant takes on the big blockbusters!
