By | 13 Comments

Matt Damon was set to make his directorial debut with Gold Mist (which I assume is a love story between a queef and a golden shower), co-written by Damon from a first draft by author Dave Eggers (who also wrote Where the Wild Things Are and Away We Go).

JAMES FRANCO TRASHES AN APARTMENT

I may have mentioned this before, but I was once at a reading (*adjusts scarf*) where James Franco read a short story, and much as I wanted him to suck because he's a handsome movie star, he was actually really good and I ended up having to give <a href="http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com/tag/schadenfreude-sloth" target="_blank">Schadenfreude Sloth</a> mouth to mouth.

SAM MENDES, DAVE EGGERS… COLLEGE BONER!

By | 26 Comments

I like most of Sam Mendes' movies, though I avoided <a href="http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com/2008/09/if-titanic-was-a-house-in-the-suburbs" target="_blank">Revolutionary Road</a> because it looks like a more boring version of American Beauty.
