Max Landis, who has a little street cred in the film industry for his screenplay for Chronicle, also writes a pretty decent comic book. Check out our review: ‘Superman: American Alien’ Could Be The Best Book Of 2016
His father John Landis is an icon in the directing world with too many films to list, but below are the ‘must watch.’ The elder Landis made some duds in the 90s, but his early work is untouchable. Also, he was producing shows on HBO 20 years before it was cool.

Enter in 30-year-old Landis who is coming off a terrible year in the film world with America Ultra and Victor Frankenstein. The writer claims America Ultra is this generation’s True Romance. One thing is for sure, Landis has become more infamous for his social media rants than his film work. His latest rant involves dislike for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
I’m not sure how Hollywood works, but you’re sure as heck don’t want to piss-off J.J. Abrams, Lucasfilm, and Disney if you want to make action / science fiction films. Oh, that’s right! None of them can hear Landis because they are swimming in money like Scrooge McDuck!
Landis in his video below comes off as a spoiled little brat and the epitome of what people consider a millennial to act like. Breaking news for you Max Landis, you haven’t earned anything yet! Shut up and get to work, because you have talent. Don’t waste it worrying about everything and everyone else.
