Things I Noticed, Thursday, February 26, 2009

Filed under: Entertainment — CPav @ 8:00 pm

Today is Thursday, February 29.  Mardi Gras and Ash Wednesday passed almost unnoticed here at PavCo (almost literally…I didn’t realize what either day was until well into each).

  • Evidently Beyonce had a wardrobe malfunction during the production number of Sunday’s Oscar telecast, but it almost falls into the “you’ve really got too much time on your hands if you noticed” category of freeze-frame zooming.  Sharon Stone’s sheer dress with no underwear on the other hand…
  • The Hollywood Reporter has the first real review of Watchmen, and it ain’t good.
  • Remember how much trouble you had drawing a circle with an Etch-a-Sketch?
  • The New York Times notes that The Simpsons has been renewed for another two years, making it (at the start of next season) the longest running entertainment series in television history, surpassing Gunsmoke‘s 20 years.  Only 60 Minutes has survived longer, though Law & Order will tie Gunsmoke if it’s renewed for next year.
  • TV Barn‘s Aaron Barnhart tweets that three former Defamer editors are looking to start up the long-defunct Movieline web site.  The link will take you to a page where you can sign up for updates.

Following his cameos in last summer’s Marvel movies (Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk), Samuel L. Jackson has signed to play Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD (actually, Director of SHIELD, but that wasn’t the title of the old comic) in 9 upcoming Marvel movies, including possibly one of his own.
