* ExecutiveMeddling: Fox told him to rewrite his script for ''Chronicle 2'' as [[http://www.bleedingcool.com/2012/10/10/why-fox-dont-like-the-script-for-chronicle-2/ it wasn't enough of a retread of the first movie]].
* {{InternetBackdraft}}: He caught a LOT of flack for claiming that Rey from Film/TheForceAwakens is a {{MarySue}}, though he himself has since expressed annoyance and disgust with people who take it too far, such as MRA members who praised him for it, and people who began claiming that the Rogue One protagonist is a Sue just based off of both the trailer and him sarcastically claiming she is as a CallBack to the Rey controversy.

Landis has attracted controversy for his constant social media presence and his sexist attitude, incredibly high opinion of his own work, a seeming sense of entitlement, {{Hipster}} lifestyle constant social media presence and ItsPopularNowItSucks mentality. He possesses a [[AgentPeacock frequently]] [[RummageSaleReject bizarre]] [[IWasQuiteAFashionVictim fashion sense]], ability to [[https://youtu.be/7sVfEFlonTk spontaneously]] [[https://youtu.be/ygWvAqvTrVI?t=1m38s generate]] [[https://youtu.be/ev7BrvTsslU film]] [[https://youtu.be/E9nL22iKUFs pitches]], and often [[FanBoy near-encyclopedic knowledge of comics and film]]. These combined have made him one of the most notable mid-tier writers in Hollywood, as well as one of the most divisive.

* {{EffeminateMisogynisticGuy}}: He's outspokenly sexist, criticizing TheForceAwakens for daring to have a female lead that's just as competent as the previous male leads in the franchise.
** To be fair, he didn't mean the issue to get so meme-famous, he later expressed disgust at receiving praise from MRA members.
