Extra! Extra! Oz Oz Oz Oz Oz YAWN.

 Lord, are there a lot of Wizard of Oz projects on the horizon! And yet none of them is a faithful adaptation of the book (not the musical!) Wicked. le sigh.  

 The funny thing is, I kind of love all the names attached. Glee’s Lea Michele is set to star in an adaptation also featuring Dan Akroyd, Martin Short, Jim Belushi, Hugh Dancy, Patrick Stewart and Oliver Platt (?!) in a movie musical. Uhm but Bryan Adams is doing the music. wtf? And the OTHER adaptation is a prequel titled Oz, The Great and Powerful directed by SAM RAIMI and starring ROBERT DOWNEY, JR.! Still, yawn. (read my review of Raimi’s Drag Me to Hell here.)  

 Michael Bay shocks the hell out of me by admitting that he is human and makes mistakes. The next Transformers is to include less wacky “comedy,” fewer racist robot stereotypes (none, dare we hope?) and not nearly so many endings. And of course, no Megan Fox. (read my write-up of megalomaniac Bay here.)   Continue reading

Guys! I’m sorry to say, you’re stuck with me again, although I know you’ll surely miss the witty bloggish stylings of Jerry and Reverend Jon. I know I will! But THIS return-to-Marla-form NDTD has a very special OMG! BONUS FEATURE! WTF! at the end: two 10 Second Reviews of movies I watched but didn’t have time to review during Nuptial Mania 2009! You lucky bastards!

But first, le scoope:

Faithful flock, it’s me again, Reverend Jon!

Finally! A Family Ties spinoff.

Finally! A Family Ties spinoff.

Canal Plus, a.k.a. The Euro HBO, a.k.a. the people behind every interesting foreign film you’ve seen, have given the go-ahead to a 12 episode mini-series based on the lives of everyone’s favorite incestuous murders (and no I don’t mean the Menendez brothers): the Borgias! This project is apparently going to be competing with a similar project headed up by Neil Jordan (The Crying Game, Interview with a Vampire) on Showtime.

I hope you all were able to enjoy a labor-free Labor Day! Yeah? Now get to work! This News Day Tuesday is serious business!

The Host 2. I’m not sure I’ll see it, but at least it’s not infuriating me like the American remake is.

Sooooo much sequels-and-remakes news in this NDTD; prepare yourself. 30 Days of Night.

It’s a quickie today, folks! Sorry for the systemic whittling down of DIH, but I promise to beef it back up with a vengeance in 6 weeks (aka: post-nuptially).

hunger games

Posh D has unveiled a new blog: Forever Young Adult! Also featuring Erin, frequent commenter here! I am forever in PD’s debt after she loaned me Hunger Games, so take her recommendations very seriously, folks.

20th Century Fox is rebooting the Fantastic Four franchise, hopefully with an entirely new cast and creative team because the last ones sucked ass.

It’s Recommends Day Wednesday!

This RDWD comes with no small amount of chagrin and crow-eating on my part. First, because I haven’t done a Recommends Day Wednesday in a long time. Whoops, new idea that got totally oublietted! (Word invention, yes!)

But also because I’m about to recommend a show that I’ve spent a lot of time ridiculing in the past. I stand here, in front of you today, head hung and hands wrung, to admit that I was wrong. America! I was wrong!

Supernatural kicks ass.

It does! It totally does!
