    Always nice to when the embodiment of sexual assault doesn’t get to hold a trophy at the end of the Super Bowl. Oh yeah… put some money down on Super 8. It’s going to be sneaky. Possibly Inception or partial Inception level sneaky.

    any DP/30 coming up for Drive Angry or Limitless ?

    guess i have to watch 5 interviews and make my own DP/30 ..

  3. sanj says:

    DP – any thoughts on AOL buying Huffpost ?

    with so much content on there how can it not get into
    some legal trouble for articles / pictures ?

    Even though I’m a Steelers fan, to show there’s not hard feelings….

    Total bullshit, IO. Does Big Ben need to pull a Snoop Dogg MURDER WAS THE CASE and walk around ranting I’M INNOCENT! after every play for you to give it up?

    1) Those two previous SB are easily two of the worst officiated games in the history of the league. It’s awesome that it took the Packers to make sure the refs called it fairly, because you can’t treat the Pack like the Cards or the Seahawks.

    2) Mr. Sexual Assault got off due to his low load. That’s what happened. If he were not all jacked up on whatever, they would have charged him.


    3) He shit the bed in another Superbowl.

    Steelers gave that game away. I am really excited about Super 8. Overall commercials were pretty lame this year.

  8. IOv3 says:

    No they were beat and it was so good. SO so so good.

  9. Paul MD (Stella's Boy) says:

    3 giveaways leading to 21 points = giving the game away.

  10. IOv3 says:

    Yeah but those turnovers, especially the last one, happened because of a tenacious D… hooah. So you think the Steelers could have won that game, because they seemed off all game, and especially with that 4th and 5. Seriously, I hate them, but they were making those sorts of plays all year and when Wallace did not come up with it. It sort of shocked me.

  11. Paul MD (Stella's Boy) says:

    I don’t like the Steelers at all and I’m glad the Packers won. Their defense is quite good, but both of those pics were on Ben. Very poorly thrown passes.

  12. anghus says:

    never let ‘no charges’ be equated with ‘not guilty’.

    hell, i don’t know the story or the people involved, but if you’ve been accused twice of the same kind of immature crap, there may be some truth to it. he even said he ‘crossed a line’ though he was never specific about what line he may have crossed.

    still, what’s past is past. everyone forgave Vick pretty fast after he brutally murdered a bunch of dogs. If you could only root for teams where all the players were decent human beings then you would have no teams to root for.

    lots of negative comments on the IMDB board for

    Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son

    so where is the DP30 …it is in theatres – it is a
    comedy – it does have actors …

    in this case i find it more interesting to see which
    movie people wont cover it

  14. Krillian says:

    No Super Bowl’s going to beat Steelers-Seahawks for worst officiating. And no Super Bowl’s going to beat Neil O’Donnell’s performance in Cowboys-Steelers for “is this game fixed?”

    We’ve had four good Super Bowls in a row. The system works.

  15. LexG says:


    Too bad she’s pushing 30, but MAD PROPS to THE WILDE who, as with JOHANSSON, at the VERY LEAST had the good sense not to have some STUPID KID during her marriage.

    They should have a rule where once you become a HOT FAMOUS ACTRESS, part of the deal is you have to get your tubes tied.

    Actually they should have that rule for all hot chicks.

    If she’s in jail – when will she have the time
    to do a DP/30 ?

    Shane Black on Iron Man 3 – I pitched that here a couple months ago. Wonder if someone was reading?

    Here’s hoping for some Titanium Man! Why? TITANIUM MAN NEEDS TO BE A MOVIE JUST CAUSE DAMN IT!

    What will you do if he’s played by Colin Firth? 🙂

It shows how out of it I was in trying to be in it, acknowledging that I was out of it to myself, and then thinking, “Okay, how do I stop being out of it? Well, I get some legitimate illogical narrative ideas” — some novel, you know?

So I decided on three writers that I might be able to option their material and get some producer, or myself as producer, and then get some writer to do a screenplay on it, and maybe make a movie.

And so the three projects were “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep,” “Naked Lunch” and a collection of Bukowski. Which, in 1975, forget it — I mean, that was nuts. Hollywood would not touch any of that, but I was looking for something commercial, and I thought that all of these things were coming.

There would be no Blade Runner if there was no Ray Bradbury. I couldn’t find Philip K. Dick. His agent didn’t even know where he was. And so I gave up.

I was walking down the street and I ran into Bradbury — he directed a play that I was going to do as an actor, so we know each other, but he yelled “hi” — and I’d forgot who he was.

So at my girlfriend Barbara Hershey’s urging — I was with her at that moment — she said, “Talk to him! That guy really wants to talk to you,” and I said “No, fuck him,” and keep walking.

But then I did, and then I realized who it was, and I thought, “Wait, he’s in that realm, maybe he knows Philip K. Dick.” I said, “You know a guy named—” “Yeah, sure — you want his phone number?”

My friend paid my rent for a year while I wrote, because it turned out we couldn’t get a writer. My friends kept on me about, well, if you can’t get a writer, then you write.”

“That was the most disappointing thing to me in how this thing was played. Is that I’m on the phone with you now, after all that’s been said, and the fundamental distinction between what James is dealing with in these other cases is not actually brought to the fore. The fundamental difference is that James Franco didn’t seek to use his position to have sex with anyone. There’s not a case of that. He wasn’t using his position or status to try to solicit a sexual favor from anyone. If he had — if that were what the accusation involved — the show would not have gone on. We would have folded up shop and we would have not completed the show. Because then it would have been the same as Harvey Weinstein, or Les Moonves, or any of these cases that are fundamental to this new paradigm. Did you not notice that? Why did you not notice that? Is that not something notable to say, journalistically? Because nobody could find the voice to say it. I’m not just being rhetorical. Why is it that you and the other critics, none of you could find the voice to say, “You know, it’s not this, it’s that”? Because — let me go on and speak further to this. If you go back to the L.A. Times piece, that’s what it lacked. That’s what they were not able to deliver. The one example in the five that involved an issue of a sexual act was between James and a woman he was dating, who he was not working with. There was no professional dynamic in any capacity.
