Movie and TV News

Here's the most boring website ever. I'm not kidding. Just typing up this blog to describe it has almost put me to sleep. There, look, I've fallen asleep.

Hi! I'm pretty!
Love me - I'm Pretty!
Britney Getting a TV Show? Looks like beauty Britney will be following in the ample footsteps of Oprah and Rosie and starting her own TV talk show - but, alas, it appears that she will not be hosting. Unfortunately. The hottie mchottie pop superstar is interested in an executive producing role on a daily syndicated talk show, which she will occasionally appear on, but no word yet on any potential host.

Superman Set Construction Begins. They're beginning set construction on Superman, which means that McG and Warner Brothers are plowing ahead with the rumored pic. The rumors of Drew Barrymore as Lois Lane are circulating, but no one seems to know who will be the man in blue - I heard the vapid Hayden Christensen from Star Wars. Let's all collectively hope not.

Movie Quote Hint. He goes to a land he's never seen before and asks a lot of questions. Actually, it's the same question, over and over and over and over and over and over again. Come on, you know it. Just guess for God's sake!

He's Fat, Lazy, and Loves Lasagna. Garfield's Coming!! Don't look now, but they're making a Garfield movie. No, you read that right. "He's cynical, lazy and, literally, a fat cat. Now Garfield, the world's favorite feline, is about to become a major motion-picture star in a film with broad audience appeal. The live-action/CGI picture is adapted from the syndicated cartoon strip read in 2,600 newspapers by 260 million readers around the globe." Check it out, if you dare...

24 Season 3. SPOILERS!! DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU WANT TO BE SURPRISED BY 24! Hercules over at Ain't it Cool News always gets to see TV episodes before everyone else and is a very reliable source for upcoming episodes and information. Well, evidently he's seen the first episode of 24 Season 3 and is dropping all the spoilers! Here is a summation, but go read the whole thing!
  1. Starts three years after the last episode.
  2. Palmer was never in a coma - he came through and is running for reelection.
  3. His palm is scarred up.
  4. Starts with “A decomposed corpse infected with some type of plague is unceremoniously deposited at a National Health Services building.”
  5. Season one kicked off at midnight. Season two kicked off at 8 a.m. Season three will begin and end at 1 p.m.
  6. The first thing we’ll see in the (commercial-free) season opener is David Palmer’s collapse following his encounter with SUPER-HOT assassin Mandy. We fade to black, then get a title card: “THREE YEARS LATER.”
  7. Jack is Los Angeles director of field ops. Jack and Tony each run a different CTU department under the same roof.
  8. We learn that Jack has spent the last year bringing to justice one Ramon Salazar, a “narco-terrorist.” For six months, Jack was undercover, pretending to be Salazar’s friend.
  9. Salazar’s associates threaten to release THE PLAGUE into the general population unless Salazar is released by 8 p.m.
  10. It’s a “weaponized” strain of THE PLAGUE and could bring about nothing less than the end of the world. If released into the population, it would kill more than a million Los Angeles civilians in the first week.
  11. Kim's working at CTU as the new Jamie Farrell (sans the traitorous component), and demonstrates a real faculty for computer science. (Absurd, you say? Remember please that when we first met Kim, she was challenging daddy Jack at chess.)
  12. Rumor has it that Kim's got a secret she's keeping from dad - she can't figure out how to tell him she's got a GIRLFRIEND.
  13. And Jack's got a secret, too - something happened to his heart in Season 2 (remember when he died?) that's affecting his overall medical condition...
24 Season 3. Will Kim be Going Gay? Jacksonville's CBS station is reporting that a 24 source reveals, "Elisha will be going gay. It's one of the main storylines." Blonde babe Elisha Cuthbert is to embrace a whole new side to her sexuality in the next season of 24 - she will fall in love with another woman. The young actress plays Kim Bauer in the popular series and TV bosses have decided to cast a female love interest for the character.

Adventures of "Action Item" Want a good laugh on your way to your next meeting? Print out a copy of this great comic strip and you'll have all the words you need right in front of you! I guess this guy got sick of attending meetings and hearing the same buzzwords over and over again and decided to have some fun with it. Unfortunately, it looks like this guy isn't planning on doing any more strips any time soon.

Ralph Nader Says that if He'd Been President, 9/11 Wouldn't Have Happened! U.S. News and World Report has a snippit from probable 2004 Presidential Candidate Ralph Nader, saying that if he'd been President, 9/11 wouldn't have happened. What, was he psychic? If so, why didn't he warn anyone? He claims that amid all the big decisions new presidents have to make after inauguration, he would have ordered cockpit doors to be hardened against attack. Follow the link over to find out what he would've done to stop it...
