The magic first ten pages

Everything I have seen on the subject of screenwriting has told me to get everything out there (characters, genre, first major plot point) in the first ten pages, or the reader will put it in the bin.

Two of my screenplays have hit that mark or beyond:

Deep Thoughts
3500 Miles from New York

Deep Thoughts is about twenty pages in but has become a little week if I do say so myself, so I've put that down and started on 3500 Miles from New York. That is the screenplay that has been buzzing around my head for longest and it is looking promising.

Anyway, when I am happy with the first ten of 3500 Miles I'll post them somewhere for comment.
