The Entertation Index: June 24

June 24, 2009

Baldwin, Stephen – “Sleepy” Baldwin called it quits on I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! He cited 125 insect bites in 8 days, which caused an allergic reaction resulting in loss of sleep and 22 pounds.  Perhaps he also realized that starring in Biodome behind Pauly Shore does not qualify one as a celebrity, and Usual Suspects came out 15 years ago.

Cyrus, Miley – Another day, another pseudo-controversy over a supposedly and at best marginally inappropriate photo shoot.  For real, check these out (totally safe for work, by the way).  If you’re getting fired up over this, strap in.  I sincerely doubt this is the worst the press will come up with in the next couple years for young Cyrus.  The force of Lohan is strong with this one.

Facebook, A Movie About – David Fincher, director of Fight Club, is reportedly in talks with Columbia Pictures to do a Facebook movie.  In the film, people who sort-of knew each other in high school will join Mafia War families and become fans of Destroying Something Beautiful while sending Lil Green Patches and beating the snot out of each other.

Gaga, Lady – Wild on-stage behavior, sultry pop music, studded leather bustier with cone breasts:  you must kiss Britney Spears at the VMAs, and your journey to the Dark Side will be complete.  Now, fulfill your destiny and take your place at Madonna’s side!

Layoffs, Myspace – Yes, this site is somehow still around, but just barely.  After 700 layoffs over a few weeks, Myspace also kind-of axed cofounder Tom Anderson, except that he will still make $1,000,000 over two years by kind-of being involved with the business as an “ambassador”.  I know 700 people who won’t be Tom’s friends anymore.  Hey, someone should make a movie about this…

Snow, Dead – The Scandinavian movie Dead Snow, enjoying a limited June release in the United States, features Nazi zombies who “feed on oversexed medical students Easter vacationing in the Norwegian Alps”.  Some reviewers have honestly complained about the movies big plot holes.  Plot holes.  In a movie about Nazi zombies.  These same reviewers probably found Transformers to be flat and unbelievable.
