Today's Blind Items - Jackass

This A list photographer and sometime director was at a screening of Paranormal Activity. Don't tell me what happens because I am seeing it next week. Anyway, our photographer was at the movies with an entourage and was extremely loud and annoying throughout the entire movie. At one point he screamed out, "Wait, is this Blair Witch?" Throughout the movie he would also yell to his entourage and ask if they needed anything or to go get him something. People in the audience tried to get him to be quiet but he just wouldn't shut up. Eventually many members of the audience walked out. Thankfully the manager gave them all their money back and a free ticket to another movie. Nothing was done however about the photographer.

Oh, Enty, I don't know what happens,however, I can tell you this: I asked my friend if it was worth seeing, and he said it didn't live up to the hype and he was very disappointed. You may not want to waste your money.

Jan de Bont?

blog hopper said...

I'm dying to see this! No one give it away :)

Mackenzie said...

Enty,

Wait until it's shown at a discount theater or something. Total waste of money.

Lillian said...

Bruce Weber. Sounds just like him.

Sylvia said...

I haven't seen the movie since I consider it another Blair Witch type of movie. I did read that a part 2 is on the works.

shelly_bean said...

I heard it's pretty scary, but I haven't actually seen it yet.

What about David LaChapelle? Does directing music videos count?

jax said...

david la chapelle

Annie Leibovitz!!

He she kinda looks like a guy, no?

ardleigh said...

Nobody threw anything at him and told him to STFU? What kind of pacifist movie theater did he go to?

ooooh...i hope you reveal the jerky photog.

genesis said...

It's online if you know where to look, the original version anyway, same thing really, only diff is the ending and you can check out the alternate ending on youtube. Gotta love the internet.

David La Chappelle

DK about the blind, don't really care, but I LOVED Paranormal Activity. Especially when you look at it from a filmmaker's perspective, it's BRILLIANT. Great marketing scheme as well.

It is worth seeing.

All I'll say about what makes it scary is: You never see the scariest part!!!

Enjoy, Enty!

My friend saw it and loved it. He's going back to see it again.

I enjoyed it. To me it was creepy, not scary. Just how vulnerable these people were.

I'm with shelly_bean and jax - David LaChapelle. Bruce Weber only did one documentary from what I recall. LaChapelle has done a few.

Mooshki said...

nunaurbiz, that's good to know. I'm always scared the most by movies where you don't see the thing you're afraid of. The first half of Phantoms (Affleck shoutout!) was one of the best horror movies I've ever seen. Too bad the second half was such sh*t.

Bad Fish said...

Don't listen to the naysayers, the movie was fantastic.

Basil said...

Why is this even a blind item? The guy acted up in public like a douch, but by making it a blind, other people are suspect.

Oopsy said...

Long time lurker - and I'm going to guess Julian Schnabel.
Artist, sometime director and photographer.

I'll catch this movie when it comes out on dvd - and then borrow it from someone.

empyrios said...

I'm gonna guess Dennis Hopper since he's a photographer and director (acclaimed for both) as well as being an actor....

as for Paranormal Activity, it's good shit. i watched it at home in bed and then couldn't get to sleep for over an hour. my significant other and i had to talk each other down...lol

def creepier watching at home in that kind of setting cuz then all the weird noises coming from your own house add to the atmosphere.

i watched it over a week ago and still think about it just before going to sleep. god i'm a pussy.

Melody said...

I didn't think it was scary. I did think it was creepy at times. I do definitely think it's worth the money to see it. It's a fascinating study in film making and I was never bored, which is saying something for a $15000 budget when multi-million dollar Hollywood movies have made me snore.

genesis said...

empyrios youre not the only one lol I saw it awhile back as well, same atmosphere as you, in bed, dark. I had to put away my cardboard cutout of the hulk because he scared me at night.

E said...

Um, Dennis Hopper has spent the last few weeks recovering after, ya know, almost dying. So....probably not him.

Wil said...

Wasn't sure where to post this, so I picked here!

The LA Times has a rather outstanding article today about the Polanski case and the way the words of Samantha Gailey about her assault have kind of been glossed over.

If anyone would like to read it, click here.

empyrios said...

yeah i knew i was reaching with the Hopper guess but threw it out anyways since no one's really guessing....perhaps almost dying has made him really cranky? ;)

@genesis: i almost spit out my wine reading that. the Hulk image is priceless....

when i was a kid my friend had a poster of micheal jackson that used to creep me out to no end when i'd sleep over. the eyes would move wherever you went in the room, lol. never did sleep much while there....

David D. said...

Larry Clark, director of Kids?

I also loved Paranormal Activity, and found it plenty scary. All horror movies are silly--even the very best--if you come in with a superior "this won't scare me" attitude. In which case you've wasted your own money. If you go to have fun and get scared, this movie will definitely scare you.

A Pimp Named DaveR said...

Anton Corbjin. A-list photog who is now doing more than just video directing.

A Pimp Named DaveR said...

Er, I mean Corbijn. Bad speller! Bad!

the.princess.leia said...

About the movie, I enjoyed it (the original ending). Someone told me about the alt ending and I'm glad I didn't see it. I would have been disappointed.

amanda rae said...

No idea who this could be, as I know nothing about photographers, A-list or otherwise, but shit like this is why I refuse to go to the movies. Why spend $10 or whatever it costs now to be in a theater full of obnoxious assholes who have no courtesy or respect for others? I'd rather download it and watch it at home...saves me money and keeps me from starting a fight!

Babs said...

Amen, amanda rae! I have become a nasty bitch when having to deal with ignorant, classless people who think the movie theater is their own private living room. Worse than spending $10 on a movie ticket, though, is spending $100 on a theater ticket and having the little pre-teen chicky behind me doing the "up-down-up-down" thing with her soda straw at the quietest, most intense emotional moment of the production. I am always amazed when people don't control their children (or themselves).

Please tell me that this is not Dewey Nicks.
