Dear Hollywood Foreign Press – F Off

JESUS CHRIST! Who the fuck do you have to blow or bribe in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to getting a stupid Golden Globe nomination?! These nominations are abominations. “Birdman” – seriously? “The Imitation Game”? What the hell is a Benedict Cumberbatch! Is that a Charles Dickens book? Did any of the chain-smoking corrupt pieces …

Manka Bros. To Produce 157 Movies Based On MC Comics Characters Through 2050

Good afternoon. The title pretty much says it all. THIS SHIT IS REAL!  So come on, Comic Con geeks – let your heads commence to explode. THIS IS A HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT and a financial commitment unparalleled in the history of Hollywood (and way more impressive than DC Comics or Marvel’s puny little movie announcements). We’ve talked …

Manka Bros. To Produce Lots Of Event Series

Good evening from my house in the Seychelles! I flew here directly from Herb Allen’s worst Sun Valley conference ever. Maybe he should just stop and hand it off to Herbert Allen, Jr. Jr. (if there is such a thing). There’s really no point to these blow fests every year. The only thing we learned this …

Herb Allen’s Sun Valley Conference – 2014 – Day 2 – Pivot

Herb Allen’s Sun Valley Conference – 2014 Day 1: The End Of Cynicism Day 2: Pivot Day 3: Improv Night I hate buzz words. I don’t use them. I make fun of those that use them. I didn’t go to business school so I didn’t learn how to speak cliches in meetings. I went to …

Herb Allen’s Sun Valley Conference – 2014 Day 1: The End of Cynicism Day 2: Pivot Day 3: Improv Night Well, fuck, it’s that time of year again. I contemplated not going at all to the Herb Allen’s Sun Valley snorefest, but decided it was in my company’s best interest… ah, fuck that, I just …

The One Percent Are More Like Jesus

In deference to my acquaintance Thomas Perkins [see left] (I won’t call him a friend – which at this point would be like calling Stalin your “squash partner”), I must disagree with his claim that the richest 1% in the world is basically being treated by the lowest 99% like the Jews were treated by the …

Sundance: Manka Bros. Acquires ‘Scoiattolo che mangia arancio’

Hello from Maui! I’m feeling much better and have recovered from the outrageous snub from the Motion Picture Academy – yet still, fuck the Academy Awards. But life in Hollywood must continue. As many of you have read, Manka Bros. has stopped going to the Sundance Film Festival because certain executives in the past chose to …

F The Academy Awards

Another year – another snub. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences can F itself. The same goes for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association… And while I’m at it, The Producer’s Guild can suck it… … and any other suck ass group of idiots who wouldn’t know a quality movie if it bit them in the …

Again, The Hollywood Foreign Press Association Can F Themselves

What a ridiculous list of nominations! Another farce. Another embarrassment. It must be the Golden Globes! And the Hollywood Foreign Press can F themselves. Right in the A. Really, HFPA, you couldn’t find ONE Manka Bros. movie or TV show to nominate this year? Did you see the Manka Bros. Films slate or the Manka …
