Look At My Briefs -- 2/18/10

The time has come once again to talk of many things, specifically my weekly brief comments on various subjects I like to call Look At My Briefs.

I've paid very little attention to the upcoming Tim Burton directed adaptation of Alice In Wonderland until this week when I saw the latest trailer and I see that it isn't so much an adaptation of the Lewis Carroll story but rather the Chronicles of Narnia with the characters from Alice in Wonderland inserted into it. Also, I see that Burton gave it the Percy Jackson treatment and changed Alice from an 11 year old girl into a sexy 20 year old. I'm sure this will work out well, especially if it restrains its use of outrageous special effects and concentrates on story and character. So...yeah.

Speaking of Alice in Wonderland, I looked at the IMDB profile of Alice actress Mia Wasikowska and saw that her next movie role is the titular character in the latest adaptation of Jane Eyre. Jane is supposed to be a very plain woman so it only made sense to cast a gorgeous girl like Mia Wasikowska to play her.

As predicted, 24 has reached the point in the season where it starts to annoy me with endless stupid plot twists that usually involve CTU agents arriving at a terrorist lair five minutes after it has been abandoned which is pretty much what happened this week. This will happen several more times before the season is over.

The only thing I thought of when I read this Variety article about the new executive producer of the Carson Daly show was, "Carson Daly still has a show? Didn't that get canceled in the first year or something?"

Who the hell goes to rehab for "anxiety"? This is similar to stars being hospitalized for exhaustion. I predict we will all soon find out that she's mainly anxious about how much cocaine she's been doing.

Some actors are wonderful, brilliant and witty people who often prove to the world that they're not just good looking entertainers but that they actually have brains inside their heads. Then there's Robert Pattinson.

Here's the link if you must read the article but, as that headline says, it's NSFW.

Mia I Can't Bother to Look Up the Correct Spelling is a fantastic actress, in addition to being gorgeous. Rent season 1 of In Treatment to see what I mean.
