Idiots


After Shia LaBeouf got into a drunk driving accident this weekend totally fucking over the entire production of Transformers 2 as he now can't work for a month while he recovers from surgery on his hand, we are once again reminded of how stupid celebrities can be.

Shia has a lot of money. I don't think taking a cab would have hurt his wallet too much, even if he took it from La Brea to Bangor, Maine.

What he did is bad, but it's even worse that it was during the production of a movie with a budget well over $200 million. 

Take that, Michael Bay. I think it might be time to recast the role of Sam Witwicky for Transformers 3: Nobody Gives a Shit Anymore.

P.S. Sweet tat, Bro. Is that your phone number?

The genius of British humour


Rumour is that self described former sex-addict and hilarious stand up comedian/actor Russell Brand will be hosting the 2009 MTV Movie Awards. This is amazing news.

If you don't know who Russell Brand is, you will soon. Check him out in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, or check out some of his stand up.

Indie directors with big... budgets


The effects of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight are already being felt and in a big way. MGM has just hired an iconic indie film director to try to reboot a major film franchise as it was announced that Darren Aronofsky will helm the new Robocop movie. 

Pretty soon explosion coordinators posing as directors (ahem, Michael Bay) aren't going to have any work, and boy is that going to be an exciting day.

Love Darren Aronofsky, but he must either be really hard pressed for a job after the Fountain TANKED, or he thinks he can do something with the material. 

Let's hope it's the former and Aronofsky can get his career back on track
