[Dec 15, 2016 at 8:25 AM] @CatParty: I fell down the rabbit hole of his early videos and he is a bigger train wreck than he presents
[Dec 15, 2016 at 8:26 AM] @Null: @CatParty, if his videos suck that much ass he might be worthy
[Dec 15, 2016 at 8:26 AM] @Null: I do want him to die
[Dec 15, 2016 at 8:26 AM] @Null: I mean that sincerely
[Dec 15, 2016 at 8:26 AM] @Null: He ruined a Best of the Worst episode, which in the Kiwi Empire is a capital offense

i think this is long overdue to be honest. he's pretty much a spaz of the highest order. and seems to lose his shit at the smallest criticism. not to mention making weird ranting youtube videos.

for example he recently went nuts about a prospective script mocking him and his behavior

Max Landis, son of Blues Brothers director John Landis, has made quite an impression in Hollywood. The screenwriter, who once bragged to the New York Times about having written 98 scripts, now says he's been the subject of four unflattering ones. The latest: "The Untitled Lax Mandis Project," a troll-y spec script about a divisive, self-indulgent character who seems curiously similar to Landis himself, whom the A.V. Club once described as a "self-styled brat screenwriter." The script, which follows a "frustrated film exec at odds with the state of his industry" who is paired up with "the one person who is making him question everything," made the 2016 Hollywood Black List.

The plot of the Lax Mandis project is vague, but according to Landis's recent Facebook rant, the full script is more pernicious. But not for the reasons you'd think: "My problem is that what is essentially a self indulgent, masturbatory 100 something page troll tweet temper tantrum was allowed to take the spot of some other actual script with an actual story someone felt passionate about on The Black List," Landis wrote. That's right. It's not that someone sat down and typed out something unflattering, but that the script took a coveted position on the Black List. "I find that the character of 'Max Landis' is some kind of hyperactive Studio-hack, something I've never been; a kind of eccentric, goofball music man-type figure whose work has the depth of a thimble," Landis wrote, ardently defending that the characterization does not fit him in the slightest. Seth Spector, whose name was credited on the script, could not be immediately reached for comment.

Ever since I saw a picture of this guy, I knew he was an absolute madman and shouldn't be trusted with anything. That said, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency on BBC isn't bad (though I never read the books), even though it looks like it was written after consuming a fuckton of barbiturates.

His hair looks greasy as hell. Like you could wring enough grease out of it to fill a shot glass just by twisting it.

And, yeah, he got all of his opportunities due to having a famous father, so I can see why struggling screenwriters would hate him.
And also yeah, he ruined that episode of BotW.
