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 …

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 …

The Manka Bros. Iconic Ox Logo Is Back!

Good afternoon. After an exhaustive design competition – and millions of dollars spent – Manka Bros., in our search for a new exciting logo for the 21st century has decided to revert to the past in order to push forward into the future. THE ICONIC MANKA OX LOGO – designed by my uncle – the …

Original Films Fail

Summer was a disaster at Manka Bros. We didn’t have one film that worked. A completely… totally… unbelievably fucked up summer. And everyone is at fault. But mostly, the fault lies in our film slate development strategy. The reason? ORIGINAL FILMS FAIL Did you morons seriously believe we’d have a global, four-quadrant hit with “Monty” …

The Haunting Of Stage 8

Thirty-five years ago, an Exorcist was sent to Stage 8 on the Manka Bros. Studios lot. Strange shit was happening there and the only logical explanation was ghosts. The film being shot on the stage was a horrible roller disco movie called “Juggle Boogie” – a sort of “Hatfields & McCoys” story about two rival …
