Do you often have great ideas for movies or television shows? Movie Magic Screenwriter 2000 is a word processor with specific commands that format scripts for television, the stage, and the screen. The program is packed with helpful tools, including a character-name bank, a thesaurus, and a chat feature that lets you work with a remote partner. Movie Magic also keeps track of drafts and alerts you if you start working on an old version of your script. The program also includes example copies of produced scripts.

Its only flaw is minor - for copy protection, you must insert the CD-ROM or validate the program over the Internet each time you launch Movie Magic.
