Movie Jail: This week's defendant is...Shia LaBeouf!

Dec. 23, 2013by: Jesse Giroux

Movie Jail

This is Movie Jail, a unique maximum security prison that houses some of the worst writers, directors, actors and producers from Hollywood and beyond. Their crimes? The offenses vary from convict to convict but most of these inmates have contributed negatively to the film world to some capacity and his or her misdeeds have covered a long enough period of time that the authorities had to intervene. In each column a defendant is put on trial, arguments are made, and then it is up to YOU, the jury, to decide if the person is guilty or not guilty of crimes against cinema. Their lives are in your hands, dude.

The Defendant

The Case

The Prosecution: Transformer series, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, New York, I Love You, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Eagle Eye, plagiarizing Dan Clowes' comic

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you shouldn't be too surprised to see Shia LaBeouf on trial, considering the events from last week. We will get to that stupidity in a moment, but plagiarizing the Dan Clowes' comic "Justin M. Damiano" isn't the only reason why the prosecution is going after Mr. LaBeouf. As an actor, he hasn't shown he has the biggest range, and the films he has appeared in haven't all been winners, to say the least.

The Transformers movies and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull made a ton of money in theaters, but critics weren't that kind to them (especially the last two Transformers), or Mr. LaBeouf's performances. Is Mr. LaBeouf completely to blame for the movies' failures? No, but he's definitely part of the problem with them, and regardless of how much he trashes those films, it's not as if he didn't cash the checks he received for his work.

Outside of big budget films, Mr. LaBeouf's track record isn't any better. Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps is a boring film, and the actor is the definition of bland in it. It still might be better than Eagle Eye though, which is a completely ridiculous movie, with another meh performance by Mr. LaBeouf. Some (including the defense) may point to Lawless as evidence of Mr. LaBeouf's talents as an actor, however the prosecution feels Mr. LaBeouf was the weakest part of that film.

But this recent plagiarism business is incredibly ugly. If Mr. LaBeouf was just an actor in a film that had a plagiarized story, he definitely wouldn't be at fault, but he "wrote" the script for his short film without giving any credit to Dan Clowes. Blatantly copying someone else's work is much worse than starring in a shitty movie, not being a great actor, or for being kind of an asshole. It's lazy, disrespectful, and is something that will probably follow Mr. LaBeouf for the rest of his career. Yes, he apologized, but it's too little, too late in the prosecution's opinion. This also isn't the first time the actor has used someone else's words without giving due credit, and even "borrowed" from Yahoo! Answers for his Twitter apology.

The jury might think the prosecution is jumping on the "F*ck Shia LaBeouf" bandwagon, but what he did was very serious, and he should be punished. Stick a fork in Shia LaBeouf, because this beef is done.

The Defense: Charlie Countryman, Lawless, Disturbia, A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, The Greatest Game Ever Played, Holes, The Battle of Shaker Heights

Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. LaBeouf hasn't helped his reputation with movie buffs with his plagiarized short film, but the prosecution doesn't think the actor would be on trial if it we were basing it only on his acting credits. He's actually been really good in most of his movies, even in films that as a whole aren't great, like Charlie Countryman. Holes and The Battle of Shaker Heights both feature excellent performances by Mr. LaBeouf, and he also did a fine job in Disturbia, A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, and The Greatest Game Ever Played.

Many fans weren't pleased with Mr. LaBeouf's character in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, however the prosecution is correct in saying it wasn't my client's fault. Mutt was a terrible character, and the defense doubts a different actor would have done any better with the role.

But the defense feels that Mr. LaBeouf shouldn't be crucified for plagiarizing a comic. Yes, it is serious business to essentially steal someone else's work, and maybe he could have done a better job of apologizing. However, does that mean he should be finished as an actor and filmmaker? Others have done far worse and most of the public has forgiven them (Roman Polanski, anyone?), so why are people treating Mr. LaBeouf like he slapped the face off of a child? Once again, it was very wrong what he did, but emotions are running so high that I feel like my client isn't going to have a fair trial.

Mr. LaBeouf has done some dumb things, and can't keep his mouth shut sometimes, but does that mean we should throw him into Movie Jail? The defense doesn't think so, and urges the jury to really consider all the pieces of evidence before rendering a verdict.

IN CLOSING...

What is the jury going to do with "Shit The Beef"? Send him to Movie Jail, or declare him an innocent man? Is the only reason why he's on trial is because of his plagiarized film, or is it just the last straw? Is Shia LaBeouf GUILTY or NOT GUILTY?

COMMENT BELOW WITH YOUR VERDICT!

*The cases for and against a defendant going to Movie Jail by the author are not necessarily his views and opinions but they are some of the beliefs that one would use to effectively make an argument for both sides. Not quite a devil's advocate but you get the point. Anyways, this is all in fun so don't take it too seriously. We have a separate jail for those people called "Troll Tower" and believe me you do NOT want to go there.

WHAT SAY YOU, GUILTY OR NOT?

LAST WEEK'S VERDICT

Renee Zellweger has been GUILTY of all charges. The jury completely agreed with most of the prosecution's arguments from last week, and the actress is now sitting in a prison cell in Movie Jail with the likes of Cameron Diaz and Sarah Jessica Parker. However, if she does another Bridget Jones film, we're going to stick her in solitary confinement.

Not Guilty

All three 'Transformers' movie are terrible and deserve to burn in hell (yes, even the dumb as shit first one) but Shia is one of two good things in it (the other being Peter Cullen). Mutt in 'Indy 5' was poorly written, but Shia is fine and does decent in the action scenes. On top, he's been challenging himself with difficult and unconventional roles lately, and that's something to admire.

Plus, 'Disturbia' was damn great!

I really like LaBeouf a lot. He stole the entire Disney Channel network in his days on Even Stevens and even when hes in a bad movie hes usually really good in it. I love that he's focusing on less formulaic movies now and trying to really grow as an actor and if thats all he was then its a resounding 'not guilty' but unfortunately he's trying to rebrand his image lately as a complete artist lately and in doing so has committed the ultimate sin of plagiarism and for that i shun him

He's been in a lot of shit movies. Has shown potential in movies such as Lawless and Disturbia. While I didn't really like either of them. I don't think he's a bad actor, more like an actor that chooses projects where he doesn't have to display too much range. He's young, so there's still a chance he'll succeed or develop stronger skills. As of now, his choices have been lackluster. Indy 4 would have been terrible no matter who they chose for the role that he filled.

Completely guilty. He's a grating and charmless screen presence and is quite simply my least favorite actor in all of Hollywood. Maybe he's not the worst, but he had a hand in marring my favorite movie franchise (Indy) and that's just unforgivable. I have no idea what Spielberg saw in him.

This guys acting is mediocre at best. The plagiarism alone makes this guy the biggest asshole in arts and entertainment. Stealing from creators who don't make as much money as he does and just half ass apologizing about it is such bullshit and wrong on so many levels. If you think this guy should get a not guilty verdict then your the problem with hollywood making the same recycled bullshit.

Guilty. Shia's a fine actor, and maybe I'd be more lenient considering his film work alone, but I can't in good conscience ignore the plagiarism issue. And I don't think the comparison to Polanski is fair, because the incident with him took place in his personal life (as heinous as it might be). Shia's an artist that outright stole from another artist. Can't forgive him for that.

I think pretty much every body can agree he is a douchebag. He is not a very good actor and one that I think truly does play himself in his movies. That would not be a problem if he were not completely unlikeable as a person.

Seriously, he had his 15 minutes of fame on the Disney channel. He is trying so hard to be "different" that he is coming off as a hipster douchebag. Seriously, the kid can't act, hasn't made a single good movie and is a lot of what is wrong with childhood actors.

I already know he's going to get guilty because everyone who comes to joblo hates him. I'm going to say not guilty. I like him in what I've seen him in. I've been a fan since his Even Stevens days, where he first made me laugh (he was the best part of that show). He can be an asshole, and the plagiarism wasn't cool, but I like his acting and appreciate his honesty. In fact, I wish more actors were as honest about the films they've been in. It's probably pointless to defend him since he's going

Is this even a question? Guilty.

LaBeouf has actually no range, and this is becoming pretty apparent to moviegoers, as is his horrible attitude and ego. Any "talent" he ever had was undermined and dissipated long ago, by his own doing.
Many argue LaBeouf is just another difficult male star (a la Sean Penn or Alec Baldwin), however, the key difference are their filmographies and performing capabilities, which are far beyond anything LaBeouf is able to do.
This incident regarding plagiarism is nothing more than entertaining

He's doing the typical "I hate the fact that I was originally a goofy Disney kid and I am doing everything under the sun to separate myself from that era." plus he has given himself the added pressure of putting the terrible Indy 4 and Transformers movies behind himself as well.

DOESN'T THAT GO AGAINST THE RULES?

Movie Jail is for the fictional crime of being in a bad movie, right? Plagiarism is a real life crime, so we can't convict him for that. And we can't convict him for being an asshole, because a lot of movie legends are and were (Stanley Kubrick, Marlon Brando, etc.). And even if we could, I'd still say Not Guilty.

Just like real jail, Movie Jail isn't mainly about punishing but to rehabilitate. Shia's been in less and less blockbusters throughout the years (most likely because he trashed his own movies). He could've done what a lot of the other actors who've been on trial and accept any role and phone it in. But his best performances have been in those movies. You didn't even mention THE COMPANY YOU KEEP. I hated a lot of things about that movie, but the acting wasn't one of them. Shia stood his ground well against those acting legends.

I've always liked his ability to ad-lib. The only exception was TRANSFORMERS 3, where he went too far and was very annoying. And his character was saying mostly mean things. But I think he was good in TRANSFORMERS 1 & 2, DISTURBIA, and even SURF'S UP. And despite its flaws, I kinda liked EAGLE EYE, in which Shia restrained himself a little.

This guy may be a prick in real life, but I wouldn't know. Fact is, a lot of Hollywood stars are douchebags. You're supposed to judge them for their work, after all. Sean Penn is a brilliant actor, but a humorless asshole in real life from what I've heard. That doesn't mean I'll stop watching his movies.

LaBeouf has charisma onscreen; it's just been mostly wasted on blockbuster movies where acting isn't really required. I thought he was excellent in Lawless.

Also, Penn can actually, you know...act.

I don't mind his acting, and I respect his choice to stop doing main stream movies for a while. But his personality and plagurizing make me say guilty. Shia is the male equivalent of the former Disney girl who went crazy, like Cyrus, Britney, or that Lizzie McGuire girl.

GUILTY AS HAIL.....

This would have been a much harder decision to make if the defendant wasn't such a douche in real life. Staring people down and picking fights with people that can clearly kick his @$$, bad mouthing his own films after the fact, placing blame on everyone but himself when films are not great (Indy 4, Transformers), plagiarism. That said, he has made some enjoyable films.....I loved Lawless and Holes.

Not guilty.

Shia LaBeouf is an odd one. I can't completely disregard any shit people give him for his work, because he's earned it. He's a guy who, once he came into prominence, should have taken the indie route. Instead, he caught Steven Spielberg's eye and now he's got the Transformers movies, Indy 4, and other unnecessary roles under his belt. He was completely wrong for Indiana Jones, true. He lacks the presence of a traditional leading man, but he is a god actor. He's also made his share of fuck-ups

Like I said, it's hard to discount what people say about him.

But I do think, if we ignore for the moment the rather serious indiscretion of plagiarizing Daniel Clowes, LaBeouf is finding his way. When I saw The Company You Keep I thought Shia fit right in acting opposite some real titans. While I'd stop short of comparing the two otherwise, he's got some of that entitled aura Warren Beatty had in some of his roles that made his characters a bit prickly at times. The fact Shia LaBeouf has been able to admit when he's wrong is another reason I have to give him some credit. Not the greatest actor of his generation, and he's good at making himself a target for fan backlash (although the majority of that seems to stem from work done, or started, about five or six years ago), but I still think he's got talent, and given a reduced sentence at best.

First send him to the slaughterhouse so he can truly become Shia the beef. Then send him to movie jail as the new dinner item. They can have Shia burgers for new years eve dinner.

Extra tidbit: I suggest Eli Roth as the next person. He seems like a worthy applicant.

Irrefutably guilty

I guess with all the "not guilty's" over the last several months, they felt the prosecution needed an easy win. All the movies the defense mentions were palatable IN SPITE of LaBoeuf, not because of him. He was easily the worst part of all of those movies. And yes, I do think a different actor could have made Mutt from KOTCS more likable. Put LaBoeuf UNDER the jail

Guilty

I would point out that I feel he's a pretty good actor. I felt he did a great job in Transformers, he was very entertaining to watch and I had the feeling that he was going to step up as an actor. Unfortunately he became an asshole. Put him in jail so he can reevaluate his life choices.

Not sure about this one. Even if you don't like his films you have to admit he does have charisma on screen and he's a decent actor. I've enjoyed alot of his work before but he does have shitty films, he was the one of the bad things in Indy 4. He does seem like a dick but we're here to judge his body of work. He's done questionable things recently but does that put his ass in jail? Maybe but I'm gonna give this kid a chance and say NOT GUILTY for now.

Guilty. I think the guy showed promise early on in his career; Holes is underseen and underrated. It's Shawshank Redemption with teens and with Jon Voight and Sigourney Weaver as the main antagonists and LaBeouf was good in it. But he just seems extremely full of himself and he's one of those actors who doesn't quite seem like he deserves all the success. Franchises like Indiana Jones and Transformers? Not quite. Add to that the obnoxious way he mouths off, the plagiarism thing, boasting about

Have never really cared for him as an actor but more so, have heard he is generally a smart ass prick in person.

not guilty

Someone forgot to put Even Stephens in the defense... Also I enjoy most of his films. I disagree with his dick moves in his personal life but have enjoyed most of his work. I wish he would go back to comedy one day. Also his new flick Fury looks real promising.

Open and shut case

Guilty. Please give him a minimum of 10 years so he can develop a different act. The "ADHD-kid-off- his-meds" bit is played out.
