Shia LaBeouf To Quit Public Life.

shia labeouf

Love him or hate him one thing is certain Shia LaBeouf has always been headline grabbing and for the wrong reasons.  Now it seems the Indiana Jones actor has had enough of life in the public eye and is throwing in the towel.

Following a much publicized case of plagiarism and its ensuing fallout, the actor has announced over Twitter that he is "retiring from all public life". Since appearing in a movie is about as public as you can get, we can assume that this statement means there will be no more Shia LaBeouf movies.

LaBeouf says the move is due to "the recent attacks against my artistic integrity," referring to his highly publicized plagiarism of Daniel Clowes' graphic novel Justin M. Damiano. LaBeouf's short film was a blatant rip-off of Justin M. Damiano, and to make matters worse, when he tried to apologize to Clowes, he did so using plagiarized apologies from other celebrities!

He was also criticized by many other high-profile actors for his subsequent Bleeding Cool interview, in which he stated that "Authorship is censorship. ... Simple - should creation have to check with a lawyer?"

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Explaining That "Weird" Cut In Poltergeist. Read The Missing Scene

Why Is There A Strange Cut In The 1982 Horror Classic, Poltergeist? If you're a fan of the 1982 Horror classic, Poltergeist then you will be very familiar with that "weird" cut in the movie.  It's 32 minutes and 47 seconds in to the movie and the scene is where Diane is explaining the strange phenomenon that is happening in the kitchen.  First, she shows to Steve a chair scraping across the floor all on its own then she does the same with Carol Anne.  Steve leans up against the kitchen wall and is completely shocked at what just happened.  It's at this point Diane starts to explain the sensation of being pulled and then...A very abrupt cut.  One moment we are listening to Diane and suddenly it cuts to Diane and Steve at their next door neighbours door.  Why the sudden cut?  It's on the VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray and even the streaming versions.  Why does this awful and weird cut exist in the movie, Poltergeist?  Watch the clip below to see the cut: Well, the ans
