    Default Overrated Filmmakers

    I just got back into the country from making my latest movie and the asshole sitting next to me in first class wouldn't shut up about how "great" Danny Boyle is. He had the nerve to say "Trainspotting" was the best film in 1996 (I guess he never heard of "Scream" or "The Craft") and should have won the Oscar. Don't even get me started on the fact this jerk won a bunch of awards for that hackneed mess "Slumdog Millionaire," but to suggest he should have won even more for a shitty movie that is inaccurate in its depiction of heroin abuse withdrawal? I asked him how he could buy into a movie that a guy literally GOES INTO A TOILET TO RETRIEVE HEROIN? And he swims in the water for a long time, too. Is he a fish? Does the heroin make him so he can hold his breath for a really long time? I nearly threw up when he came out of that disgusting toilet. And it's not a metaphor because he then leaves the bar and is all wet, so we're to believe it all actually happened. It's just so ridiculous and I hate the love this movie continues to get all these years later. I had a girlfriend many years ago who secretly liked Danny Boyle and even had the book version that they made of the movie to cash in on it's success. When I found it in her room, I was so tempted to just rip it in half. I dumped her a couple days later.

    I have to remember to lie when people on the plane ask me what I do for a living.

    Trainspotting is way better than Scream or The Craft. Of course, you probably can't tell, just from looking at the shit movies you've worked on from your IMDB page.

    HAHAHAHAHAHA. Reminds me of this conversation I had with my old girlfriend sixteen years ago when when she was all like "Pinkerton is clearly the album of the year." Without even saying a word I put on Aenima, turned the volume way up and then threw all of her shit into the street.

    One day someone will make a movie about heroin addiction that is not funny, enlightening or entertaining. Simply accurate.

    I like how his proof that it's not a metaphor is that there's a two second shot of Renton's wet shoes when he gets back to the flat.

    I still think PRT is Randy, even though he's desecrating one of the two movies that Randy actually likes.

    i like how we're questioning the reality of one scene in trainspotting, but not the entire premise of the craft. take some advice from the craft and cut yourself.

    Those people who put together animal planet and shit need to get over themselves. You guys filmed some polar bears fucking in the wild, great. Lets throw you a party and release 5 versions of your film and one of the editions will be in a giant globe. Pretentious mother fuckers thinking we never seen zoo books before.

    I was going to save him for number 3 or 4, depending on if I make it to "The Master" this weekend. I guarantee that if his first films are to be a judge, then "The Master" is not going to be a "Master"piece.

    Ewan McGregor was wet from head to toe when he left the bar. I don't care how many seconds it was, that told me everything I needed to know right there.

    Well, Jon Voight appears as Van Helsing. I don't have to tell you he's an incredible actor. It's like I wasn't even directing him. This is probably his finest performance since the season of "24" he was in, or at least "Anaconda." It's the first in a planned trilogy featuring my take on Dracula. Set in medieval times and shot in beautiful Romania, it's a vampire movie not like any you've seen before. Look for it in theaters next year!

    You're right, I don't know anything about making shitty ripoffs of horror films.

    Ewan McGregor was wet from head to toe when he left the bar. I don't care how many seconds it was, that told me everything I needed to know right there.
    You don't see him leave the bar. It cuts directly from him exiting the toilet to a close up of his feet back at the apartment. Explain to me how that told you everything you needed to know, dipshit. You make fucking horror movies that I'm relatively certain probably don't adhere to a fierce standard of realism. What the fuck is it that this one minute long diversion into a surrealist metaphor for Renton's desperation in the face of withdrawal somehow communicated to you about the filmmaker that has given you such an absurdly passionate hatred of what is probably the most consistent aesthetic work of our generation? Also, what the fuck would you know about heroin addiction?
