Honestly with some of the stuff people are alluding to its insane he isnt in jail. Some of the stuff explaining stuff in here is fucked up, but a lot of the more ambiguous stuff sounds really fucked up. Like what the fuck does this guy to people?

Yeah it really became reading each of these accounts only to come away without any specifics other than the one guy who saw him slap a girl. They are probably afraid of a lawsuit but I mean, if he really is as physically abusive as being alluded he needs to go to jail and for that to happen they need to come forward with their stories.

He always seemed dishonest in his behaviour and actions. Did people forget all the accounts of him being a total shit stain that should be barred from Hollywood and society.

Man, fuck Landis. I'm getting tired of people turning out to be total shitheels. I'm going back to the Keanu thread so I can enjoy humanity not puking on itself.

The OP really needs an overhaul, the copied text there is from 2016 and 2017, lead with the Ani Easton Baker stuff, she was his girlfriend when he got outed the first time, it's a first hand account. The reason he didn't get nailed properly the first time was because no one went on record.

are there any details on what john landis actually did? most of the max landis stories have something about his powerful hollywood father helping to cover for him, but john landis doesn't exactly strike be as a particularly powerful figure. i'm sure he has connections and all, but his only movie during the past two decades has been burke and hare (whatever that is). what could he really do?

His dad was a big name director for a long time and like father, like son, he basically got away with killing several people on a movie set. You might not know him but the people with clout did.

You mean John Landis, the man who was partially responsible for the death of 3 people (2 of them were children) and still continues to have a good career in Hollywood? He might have not done much in the past few years but he still has good connections.

you two basically just repeated what i said. of course i know who john landis is, and i know about the twilight zone helicopter thing. it still doesn't answer my question: what did he do to cover for max landis? way bigger fishes than landis have been exposed in recent times, so i would like some details on how the connections of a has-been filmmaker helped to keep things secret.

If we all knew that this would be an even bigger story then it already is turning out to be.

This has always been one of the weird things about this story. John Landis is rich but he certainly isn’t some mega powerful Hollywood kingpin. And yet there’s this idea that he’s covering up for the son and everyone is terrified of him. If he is, how has he done that when more powerful people couldn’t get away with their own crimes? If he isn’t, then how did a moderately successful screenwriter get away publicly abusing people for years? This almost feels comparable to the Bryan Singer situation where you wonder if Landis is part of a network of powerful people and there’s a bigger story here.

He sounds like a lot of manipulative people that I've encountered in my life, that I've allowed to take advantage of me because I have a bad habit of taking people at face value.

I'm almost afraid to ask this but a lot of posts linked in the OP allude to how horrifying his actions have been, that he's done things too fucked up to type out.

Is there a link that outs what that refers to? I don't want to put it out there to upset people but I think the more horrifying details should be exposed. People should know the full scale of what he's done to others.

I don’t think so. Discussions of Landis are always vague, presumably for legal reasons.

This is one of the least shocking ones to come out, dude was always sketch. Good on all these women for coming forward, but it's another case of an open secret that never should have gotten this far.

Remember when he didn’t know what saxophone was?

This guy is a creep and an idiot

My experience with Max Landis was long and extremely unpleasant but nothing like the allegations of his victims on account of me being a heavy ugly adult male who didn’t know anything about him or care about his dad. However it did contain a vast amount of this kind of shit.

This has been known and people were steady putting him back on for rumored projects.
The thing is that he's such a nobody to the general public that the allegations don't stick and a lot of the people who control hiring don't seem to give a shit about moral standards so long as they're not called on it.

Yeah, like most people I was turned onto RLM because of their excellent prequel and Indiana Jones reviews. Gradually learning that they are alt-right sympathising, anti-"SJW" transphobes was...perhaps not entirely surprising, but horribly disappointing nonetheless.

I still don't think they're alt-right but they do have some bad takes. And I mostly think it comes from Mike and Rich. Rich in particular is suspect to me.

Disgusting. The Landis family should never have been allowed back into the fold after the father was responsible for the deaths of two children and Vic Morrow.
