Joe Carnahan does not give a f*ck. That is for sure. But, I respect him even more now that I have watched the first segments of the new web series Hollywood Trenches. The first 20 minutes have been released online with another 5 videos coming over the next several weeks.

If you are the type of person, like me, who is fascinated by the inner workings of Hollywood, this will make your day. If you are the type of person who loves to hear the true perspective of someone with experience making films talk frankly about the shit they have to deal with, you will love these videos. Or, if you are just a general movie buff who wants some inside info, these are for you.

In case you don't have the time, or headphones, here are some of the highlights from the videos.

On the unfair treatment of Carl Rinsch and the filming of 47 RONIN: "Carl Rinsch, who's in the situation on the samurai film. Carl's a lovely guy and an extraordinarily talented guy -- he never should've been given $200 million to make a samurai film," Carnahan says. "He should've been given $3 million and you figure it out."

On filming THE A-TEAM after leaving production of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE III: "I couldn't give a sh*t about THE A-TEAM -- I just wanted to see if he could make a "big, f*ck-off action franchise. I didn't get to do this on Mission Impossible, and I wanted to see if I had this skill set."

Like that? There is tons more in these videos. Check them out and stay tuned for the next episode this Friday!

Carnahan is very smart, and I love the fact that he is very simple. He wants to make movies, and and doesn't give a shit, in a way that he just want to endure what the business is all about, the art of storytelling. I love how he truthfully mention the A-Team and how he just wanted to prove himself that he can make a film like that, whether or not he cared about what the A-Team is. I have much more respect for this guy.

This is why I love this guy. There should be more film-makers like him who are so passionate about the movies they make and not the money involved. Great interview.

Carnahan has always been one of my favorite filmmakers and I love all of his flicks. He is just a guy that makes films I want to watch and tells stories I want to listen to. Just complete respect for the guy.

I love this guy and he has quickly become ine lf my favorite filmakers with each film he makes. He has made some great films and some of my personal favorites with Narc, Smokin' Aces, The A-Team, and The Grey. Especially The Grey.

I loved his highlight reel for the reboot of Daredevil, so it's too bad we'll never see that come to existence on the big screen. I just think the guy has the right to speak like this because he has the credit and quality of his films to back him up.
