Look At My Briefs -- 9/3/09

Time for a special Labor Day weekend edition of brief comments on various subjects called Look At My Briefs. It's special is. Shut up!

I finally saw the Hannah Montana movie and I must say, I was shocked. The amount of nudity and graphic sex scenes were not was I was expecting. I'm wondering how the hell I could have not heard about this before I saw the movie. Miley Cyrus is only 16 so I doubt it's even legal to film her doing nude sex acts. Really, I just don't understand this at all.

This is nice to read since I'd been reading rumors that the Tim Burton-directed Dark Shadows movie with Johnny Depp as vampire Barnabas Collins wouldn't be made. Burton says, "One of the biggest challenges on ['Dark Shadows'] is to just capture that weird tone of the show." Gosh, I hope Tim Burton is up to making a weird movie.

Really, I was hoping this MacGruber movie was a joke or maybe just idle speculation from the people involved but no, they actually have photographic evidence that this dumb little SNL sketch with no real plot to speak of that's basically the same thing every time they do it is being made into a full length feature film. What, was Horatio Sanz not available to do a "Carol" movie so you all had to do this instead? Look for MacGruber in a year or two in the same DVD bin at Wal-Mart with Night at the Roxbury and Superstar.

I had never seen Mad Men before the recent season 3 premiere since I assumed it would be canceled long ago and I'd be annoyed that I got into it but lookee lookee it's already been renewed for season 4. Good work, AMC. I have no idea if you're making money on this show. I hope you are. At the very least, you'll get a few bucks from me when I buy the DVDs for seasons one and two.

This Big Hollywood post is the height of unintentional comedy. Author Michael Walsh discusses his desire to have his new book, a thriller about a covert super spy who is the sole person on the planet capable of foiling a complex, diabolical terrorist plot to destroy the United States, fill some sort of hole in our popular culture. Yeah, we're really short on stories like that.

CORRECTION: I mentioned above about the Hannah Montana movie showed Miley Cyrus in graphic, provocative sex scenes. It turns out that what I had actually seen was a porn film called Hannah Montan-Ass and it's about a girl who lives an ordinary life until she dons her blond wig to become the world's biggest porn star. I apologize for my mistake.
