The only movie making guide you'll ever need.

Save the Cat is a guidebook to making blockbusters that offers incredibly specific advice and appears to have been used in many movies.  Jurassic Park, a personal favorite, is noted as one that had similar parts but not the correct order.

I am not praising this book, by the way, merely pointing out how formulaic movie making has become.  Not at all like Casablan...oh, wait.

Here is the list of events and when they should take place - apparently one page equals about one minute of screen time.
