Sorry folks, I won't be posting another edition of my brief comments on various subjects I like to call Look At My Briefs this week. HA HA, APRIL FOOL! Yes, I know that's not till tomorrow but that just means this isn't an April Fool and that makes it the GREATEST APRIL FOOL OF ALL TIME!!! Really, it does.
Here's an interesting story about Elizabeth Taylor's role in taking down the Production Code, a set of self imposed movie industry rules governed by religious zealots that not only forbade even mildly excessive sexuality but also interracial couples. The current movie rating system still has trouble separating serious adult material from pornography but at least we're better off now than we were back then. So thanks Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Mike Nichols and everyone else who dared to stand up to censorship. Thanks to you, we now have movies like Transformers and...Sucker Punch...screw you guys.
The new Dr. Who trailer looks very cool. It teases just enough without spoiling a damn thing. It's lucky I don't have sex with trailers because if I did, it would be very sore and very pregnant by now.
Everyone complained last week about the costume being worn by the latest incarnation of Wonder Woman. well America, you can't get decent healthcare income equality but by God you can get a television network to make minor wardrobe changes to the costumes of fictional characters. They still should have done what they did to Batman and reimagined it completely to be more in line with what a real person would wear because, after all, a real person is now wearing it but it is better than it was. I'll let you know if I have any trouble ripping it off Adrianne Palicki's body when I fantasize about her.
The only answer I can come up with for this headline is, "He'll get his own show on a pornographic version of the Food Network."
Joel Surnow claims that the History Channel almost killed his mini-series about the Kennedys because he's conservative. Actually, it seems the real reason is that someone at the History Channel actually sat down and read the script.
In this week's reboot news, how the hell can Child's Play be darker? Also, they are already quite literally planning to reboot the Batman franchise before The Dark Knight Rises has even been made. This news backs up my theory that the Harry Potter movies will be "rebooted" and the whole franchise will start over again six months after the last one premieres this summer.
By now, you may have heard of Jacqueline Howett, the writer of an e-book who freaked in a comments section over a critic's bad review. Truth to tell, I feel sorry for her. It was unprofessional but she is inexperienced and almost certainly didn't think the story would get the coverage it did. Still, we do live in an age where there truly isn't such a thing as bad publicity and I can't see this not moving at least a few copies of her book. Hmm...
