Afternoon Buzz: Judd Apatow, Joss Whedon, Dr. Who...

Wednesday, January 7, 2009

Looks like Audrey is ready for her afternoon buzz. Are YOU?


!!BUZZ!!
Here's the first look at Judd Apatow's upcoming comedy "Year One", which features Michael Cera, Paul Rudd, Jack Black, Oliver Platt, David Cross, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, among others. Well, sound great; I'm always up for an Apatow flick. My only concern is the fact that Jack Black (who, while admittedly being capable of giving funny performances, is also a d*****bag) is gleefully hopeful that the movie will offend many people's religious sentiments. Pfft.

!!BUZZ!!
Joss Whedon has been interviewed by Brian Ford Sullivan about his new show "Dollhouse." I've been a big fan of Joss Whedon ever since I saw Firefly and Serenity (though I've never really seen Buffy), and I'm very excited to see Dollhouse; however, there have supposedly been a lot of problems with its production. Joss says in the interview that the original pilot script was scrapped in favor of another--even though the original has already gone to film! Here's hoping it all works out for the best.

!!BUZZ!!
If you know me at all, you'll realize that at times I can be ridiculously snobby and artsy-fartsy when it comes to my preference for eclectic indie music and quirky, bizarre indie movies, especially those ill-named indie "dramedies". Thus I am very excited to see the upcoming indie "dramedy" 'Sunshine Cleaning'. Here's a brand new bland poster for it. So, the question is, does Alan Arkin now only make quirky indie dramedies that focus on a struggling dysfunctional family, an odd kid, and have "Sunshine" as the prominent, catchy word in the title? One can only hope.

!!BUZZ!!
Simon Pegg and Robert Weide have seriously told fans in the US *NOT* to buy the DVD of their movie "How to Lose Friends and Alienate People". Wanna know why?

!!BUZZ!!
In anticipation of Matt Smith becoming the 11th Dr. Who, Wired has written up a piece recounting the litany of the ten other Time Lords and their famed history.

!!BUZZ!!
Apparently, this Australian commercial was the "most complained about commercial of 2008". I'm with the Geekologist on this one; it could have been a looooot worse, considering the genre of the product it's advertising.

!!BUZZ!!
This one's good for a laugh, or at least a mild chuckle. It's a captioned screenshot from Christian Bale's new Terminator movie.

!!BUZZ!!
Oh, Bollywood. You're so silly. You're such a cute and silly baby Bollywood, Bollywood. Why are you trying to remake Back to the Future?

!!BUZZ!!
Huh. A movie about a team of midgets playing basketball with Dennis Rodman as Dennis Rodman...why didn't I think of that? Oh, that's right. It's because I still have a soul. Score 1 for Tyler; Satan, dwarfs, and Dennis Rodman, 0.

!!BUZZ!!
And finally, if you're caught wearing a Hawaiian shirt within the next few days, someone might think it's a sign of your grief.

Ciao.

I think they like to be referred to as "little people" ;) I too am excited about Sunshine cleaning but I love Amy Adams and Alan Arkin is fab too. Kenny told me about the new Dr. Who so I will have to go look at him.
