Max Landis' nerd rage on the death and return of Superman is too awesome.

Feb. 7, 2012by: Paul Shirey

Max Landis, son of director John Landis, has made this short film/nerd rant that is kind of brilliant. If you're a comic book fan (and many of you are) and experienced the whole "Death of Superman" event in 1992 like I did, then you likely got wrapped up in the hype to some extent. I was immersed. The fallout after his death was less than stellar and had a massive impact on the comics industry, most notably in using the "death" of a character as a way to "reinvigorate" sales.

Landis has been making quite a name for himself of late, especially with the success of CHRONICLE, which seems to be winning over audiences and critics. There's no shortage of projects on his plate at this point. There's some great guest stars in the short, including Elijah Wood, Mandy Moore, Simon Pegg, and even a scene with Ron Howard (and some cool images of the cast via Superhero Hype). The clip is about 15 minutes long and well worth the watch (although I'm positive some of you will claim it's not).

Check out the clip, then we'll talk:

I'm sure this short will divide many; some will enjoy the shit out of it, like I did, while others will likely develop a distaste for ol' Max Landis. Personally, I think he speaks the nerd language pretty well and comes off as a well-versed dork who is able to articulate geek wisdom with a great blend of humor and recreation. 

We, as the schmoes of geekdom, tend to get wrapped up in the things we love, sometimes way more than we should, but that's kind of the fun of it, isn't it? I mean, Landis is going off on a rant that we've all gone on before about many a different property, character, movie, whatever. (I should film my own on TRANSFORMERS...oh, boy).

Enjoy the clip and strikeback with your thoughts. In the end, that's what Landis is doing.

Extra Tidbit: I'd love to see Landis take on some of Marvel's crossover events, most of which I enjoyed. Still, I'd enjoy the hell out of their deconstruction. What about you? Anything You'd like to see ol' Max tackle?

I can see how people would jump on that and certainly Max has an advantage, but he still has to "do the work." His father didn't write his screenplays for him (to my knowledge).

If you have a good parent who can guide you in a particular craft they are good at, I don't think that shows favoritism...just a parent doing the best they can for their child.

However, you can do all you want for your child and they'll still turn out a mess. [link]

I wasn't dying with laughter, but there were definitely some hilarious moments in there.

And Fightkid. Seriously. Shit like that should get you banned. You're not expressing an opinion as much as being straight-up rude and offensive. Us 'pussy faggots' don't appreciate that kind of attitude.

Calm down, guys! This was a humorous, film meant to parody the conventions of a comic. I sincerely doubt that Landis meant to spit on the comic sub-culture as a whole, or else why would he be so proficient at listing all the nerdy details? Clearly if Superman had never existed, then his film would not either, and I'm sure that it was meant to be with the most respect and just to poke fun at the character.

...With that said, I've only watched about a minute of this. The video-player on this

Hahaha, that was great, Landis is just calling bullshit. There isnt a thing he said that wasn't true. Comic fans just swallow crap so easily and believe its sugar. I mean I know....I am one. And I wouldnt exactly call that turd of an event "pop culture." Anyway, great job.

How many people watched this after Patton Oswald tweeted it?

I know I did. And I think it's a funny look at the cluster-fuck that was the death of Superman, but Max Landis does come off a bit "Too cool for school" in this. Especially in the shadow of his Ultimate-Film-Geek father who is a personal hero to some cinephiles like myself... but I think the real star here is Elijah Wood, who keeps showing off some awesome hilarious chops. This guy needs a good comedy script (not on TV cause Willfred kicks ass), like Max Landis needs 2 good films before being

I enjoyed it...

I'll diss on hipsters just like the next guy, and maybe he is a bit full of himself.

This was funny though. Chronicles is a major achievement for everyone involved, so it should be no surprise that he would be milking up the attention. Certainly doesn't warrant the kind of hate I'm reading.

The only reason this guy has any pull to make this video with the people it has in it and get any attention at all is cause of his last name. That's it.

That's not really an argument. Thats just hating on where he came from. He's not the first person to follow the success in their family. Shit, if you were the son of a famous director, who exposed you to films your whole life. Would you decide to be a construction worker when you grew up? No, you're gonna take advantage of the opportunities that are given to you.

So much hate.

Some much hate from people. People act like he's the first guy in history to take advantage of his name. Take it easy. If you were the son/daughter of someone famous, it would be hard not to follow in the footsteps of success. I enjoyed it the rant for what it was, wasn't meant to be taken seriously.

It was a fun rant, and i don't see why Landis shouldn't be able to geek rant if he wants. The likelihood of him getting assaulted by the Ghost Of DC Comics Past is pretty small, so what does it matter?

he did come across pretty cocky

I don't read comics so I've only heard about the death of superman, but I thought that was pretty funny. If what he says was accurate and that's how Superman died, then that's pretty lame. It's also pretty weak for writers of a major comic company like DC.

On the one hand, I agree with how stupid the whole death and rebirth of Supes was at the time. The week that came out was the week I had opened my comic book store, and I was getting calls from all over Northern CA. from people looking for the book. I also remember John Bryne (who took a crack at limiting Supes' powers in the late 80's) writing an article warning people that Supes would be back within a year. No one listened, I made shitloads of cash off a book that is now less than cover

I also remember John Bryne (who took a crack at limiting Supes' powers in the late 80's) writing an article warning people that Supes would be back within a year. No one listened, I made shitloads of cash off a book that is now less than cover price, and a trend was born. I can say this, because I was a retailer AND a comic book fan at that time where the comic book industry was imploding on itself. Variant covers, foil covers, splash pages, limited dialog (take a look at Spawn #1-100 for reference), and this was just the final nail in the coffin during a recession where people decided to try investing in comics. This was a time referred to as The Speculator Market. If DC hadn't killed it like they did, I think there would have been a lot more damage done to the industry than what we saw.
On the other hand, Max Landis is a poseur. He's never had to work his way up the ladder professionally since he knows all of daddy's contacts. So by making this 'rant' video a mere week after releasing a fairly decent movie that falls in the same vein (and has its own share of problems), he not only hurts his movie, but his 'geek' credibility.
Max, howsabout you sit down, shut the fuck up, and ask one of daddy's friends to look over your next script to clean up any problems. Because honestly, no one really cares about your opinions otherwise.

If writing a found footage superhero origin story wasn't such a blatantly obvious ploy to cash in on current Hollywood trends, it might be easier to take the criticisms of DC's marketing tactics more seriously. But as it stands, Landis is the pot to DC's kettle. Also, wonderfully convenient to post this just a few days after the release of your own superhero film, no? Next time let's not be so transparent with our intentions.

From a comedic standpoint, this was like watching the annoying

From a comedic standpoint, this was like watching the annoying jerk at the party who loves to hear himself talk louder than everybody else go on a rant for 15 minutes. I half expected him to high-five his bros every few sentences. It's also a pretty obvious 'Drunk History' knockoff, except that it lacks any of the charm and sincerity inherent in those. Landis never actually comes across as anything other than well-rehearsed and mugging for the camera.

I haven't seen Chronicle, and I remain curious about it given the positive reviews, but this video leaves an awful taste in my mouth regarding this guy.

I think over all, starting out, the worst thing you should do on the web is trash someone else's work, especially like this. I'm guessing it's gonna be about 3 days before someone does this to Chronicle just for revenge.

No way...

All the inaccuracies aside (and there are quite a few, Movie.com's got a nice response post about this), all I got out of this is that the son of a successful, famous director knows successful, famous actors to be in his nothing video. This is the same typical over-the-top know-it-all, pretending to be angry act (and it really is an act) that you see in Angry Video Game Nerd, That Guy With The Glasses, and The Escapist. It's cool that he shared a story from his childhood of his dad (I'd like to

So this is Drunken History but with comics? And just as inaccurate. Seriously, this guy's entire point is invalid because Superman (and many other comic book heroes) have died and came back numerous times long before The Death of Superman. The Death of Superman just made an entire story arch out of the idea, and hyped the shit out of it.
It was like this guy glanced at Wikipedia, and decided to perform the cliche hipster act of making an annoying quirky video-rant about it.

Superman has died and came back several times during the Golden Age of comics. Wonder Woman died in Crisis on Infinite Earths (1985). Optimus Prime died and came back (yes he is also a comic book hero). I could keep going on and on, but I'll stop here. Do a google search, its easier on me.

Totally Agree

Its about time someone did this video. Thats my biggest problem with that comic book. They created this upstoppable guy (Doomsday) and he is destroying everything and the heroes who try to stop him are Booster Gold, The Guardian, and some black dude dressed like a bird??? Where the hell was Wonder Woman? Green Lantern? Hawk Man? I mean the REAL DC Heroes?

So The Death of Superman was the first superhero comic to break the rules of death in comics? Ok, I have to make sure I heard this right. The Death of Superman was THE comic to forever break the rules of death in comic books? In 1992?! Wow, the only thing worse then some annoying pretentious prick, is an annoying pretentious prick who has no fucking idea what he is talking about. I guess comics just didn't exist before 1992. This was not a geek rant, this was a geek wannabe rant from a poser

If I wasn't a big fan of Supes before this puts the nail in the coffin. Because this kids' Daddy is a proverbial Hollywood big shot he can obtain a place in the movie industry while others who really want to get involved or dare I say talented enough to want to do anything in the movie industry lose out on a spot based on this moron. Who just happens to be lucky in the "I'm able to work in movies because of my DNA"...or some shit. Pathetic...sorry for the rant but in the words of Martin Riggs,

Not saying it wasn't funny or true, just saying it was unnecessary.Chronicle was good, but this guy ain't even 1/10 the director his father was or 1/100 as likable.

he wrote Chronicle, hasn't directed anything. So your comment is still accurate, however your reasoning isn't

WEll, I stand corrected at that point, but I still don't care for him.

Why is John Landis' son Sweding something? You just released a major motion picture; stop feigning youtube charm. And did this have to go on for over sixteen fucking minutes?

Just Awful

I couldn't make it even halfway through this. I don't even know where to begin with all the things wrong. I can't think of anything that didn't suck about the first half that I watched.

Hipster douche ironically and snarkily deconstructs a piece of pop-culture 20 years after it happens. Shocking. I guess he thought drinking a PBR and wearing a scarf would be a bit over the top.

yeah, I know...after seeing this video, I saw "Max Landis" in the headline and thought: they misspelled "That Guy With The Glasses"

Soooo this nobody just went on and on about the Death and Return of Superman. Is he aware that this happened like 20 years ago? So relevant and topical. And I'm sorry, who is he to criticize this did he work with DC, did he invest money in it...oh wait that's right he had nothing to do with it but still feels as though his pointless opinion matters. Congratulations. Must be nice to have that much time and money to waste.

Sounds like you immediately hated it, but continued to watch it for 16 minutes. And then you cried about it.

Boo-friggedy-hoo.

So what you're trying to say is you're super cool cause you drink whiskey straight in an effort to prove that you yourself are not a pussy fagot? Cause that's what i got from this response.

i was referring to the bitch sipping rather than the water...this is sheer promotion

its so awesome that someone has said ''comic fans just swallow crap so easily'' in reference to the superman death when clearly this cameo filled drivel rant about absolutely nothing goes down just as easy by the looks of it
