Anatomy of a Script

I continue to watch movies like mad. Dissecting and analyzing. The last few days have been a process of watching a movie then writing my movie, watching then writing. One problem I realize I have ... I have a really really hard time killing people in my scripts. I take that back. I have a hard time maliciously killing people in my scripts. I also have a hard time with characters that are mean to other characters. I'm working on a thriller type script where one of the characters does bad things, but I can't get him to do really bad things. Right now they're just kind of bad. I need to get to really bad, but I'm having a terrible time with it. It's my own stupid conscience.
