Look At My Briefs -- 11/12/09

I imagine the world will end tomorrow to prevent the release of 2012 which means I only have one more chance to present brief comment on various subjects I like to call Look At My Briefs.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Nicole Kidman playing a married couple? Doesn't look like some soft core porn film with loads of gratuitous nudity but a man can dream.

This is a very funny takedown of the Twilight books. I didn't realize just how Mormon they were.

I feel sorry for Harry Hamlin. Clash of the Titans is the one film of his I can name off the top of my head and now they're remaking it. Still, that's the way of the world and you'd probably be more likely to stop hurricanes by complaining about them than you would all the Hollywood remakes. Let's see, Olivier played Zeus in the original. I'm guessing Anthony Hopkins in this one. *checks IMDB* Nope, Liam Neeson. I guess I'm losing my touch. I liked this movie better when it was called 300.

Oh no, ABC is canceling Eastwick. This means I'll never get the chance to watch the show I had completely forgotten was on. I wish I had been a fan of this show as the internet was always remarkably free of Eastwick spoilers so each new episode would have been a surprise.

Regular readers of this site know that I have in the past written about Big Hollywood contributor S.T. Karnick and his ability to doom any movie or television show that he likes. So far he has buried Land of the Lost, Eleventh Hour and The Goode Family. Last month, he gushed about the new Kelsey Grammer sitcom Hank. Well, not exactly "gushed" as he admitted it wasn't that funny but that we should all watch it anyway since it fit into his worldview and social agenda. So, will Karnick finally be able to break the streak and support a hit?

And now I present today's MEGA AWESOME MOMENT. Yep, a Dr. Horrible sequel is definitely in the works. Had Bad Horse stomped the Doctor to death yet? Will Penny be cloned, plucked from a parallel universe or be her own evil twin? Is it possible that this will completely suck several metric tons of ass? No way...okay, I take it back. Anything can be ruined for a variety of reasons. Still, this is Whedon and his peeps free from interference of any kind so I'm going to flip flop again and say no way will it suck.

This Sunday I have both the new Prisoner series AND new Doctor Who. I'm not sure but I think this means I no longer have need for human contact.

Actually, Moist will reveal his civilian identity is obnoxious engineer Howard Wolowitz.

Karnick does like Castle a lot, which gets good ratings. Thankfully I discovered it before Karnick did, so I'm not tainted with that.

I noticed playing ODST is a lot more difficult after Adam Baldwin's bizarre assault on Sesame Street, though.
