Paul Reubens starts filming “Pee Wee’s Big Holiday” today…

Well filming for the new Pee Wee film, “Big Holiday” has begun filming today. Paul Reubens spent most of his St. Paddy’s day preparing to start, “Big Holiday”. In the photo above is Paul Reubens himself in character of Pee Wee on the set of the new film.

Glad the new Pee Wee movie is finally happening. Pee Wee may not have aged a bit but his hands, though. His hands are getting kind of veiny and wrinkly if you’ve noticed.

As filming is going on, I’ll be on the lookout for more behind the scenes pics. I’m sure more photos will surface the web at some point.

As a big Pee Wee fan myself, I’m really looking forward to it. As a matter of fact, I just re-watched, “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure” and “Big Top Pee Wee” on Netflix streaming not too long ago. Even though “Big Top Pee Wee” got mostly negative reviews, I still liked the film. Not bad as people made it out to be. I liked, “Big Top Pee Wee” ’cause it was different. In “Big Top Pee Wee”, he’s a farmer, scientist, circus performer and womanizer! “Big Top Pee Wee” is also a love story so it was different than “Big Adventure”. I plan on watching “Pee Wee’s Playhouse” on Netflix too.

I’m looking forward to “Pee Wee’s Big Holiday”, sounds like it’s aiming toward the “Big Adventure” feel which is cool!

In the new Pee Wee film, I hope we see some familiar faces and interesting cameos. Would be cool to see E.G. Daily back as Dottie and hopefully Mark Holton returns as Francis too! We’ll have to wait and see.

Can’t wait for “Pee Wee’s Big Holiday”!!!!

Pee Wee Herman starts posting cryptic teasers on “Top Secret New Pee Wee” movie…

Here we go. The Pee Wee Herman official facebook page just started teasing the new Pee Wee movie. Look like he’s about ready to announce it.

What’s the new Pee Wee movie gonna be about??? The last I heard, I think it’s gonna be, “Pee Wee’s Playhouse: The Movie” based on that TV show but the movie could be something different, though. If there’s gonna be a “Pee Wee’s Playhous” movie, then Laurence Fishburne needs to reprise his role as Cowboy Curtis!!!

New Pee Wee movie about to be announced???

Paul Reubens aka Pee Wee Herman, dropped a big hint that he’s about to make a big announce pretty soon… possibly this week? He didn’t say what the announcement is gonna be yet but a lot of people are guessing that it’s gonna be another Pee Wee movie to the big screen. They just released “Pee Wee’s Playhouse” to Blu-Ray finally and that’s what made people to believe that there’s going to be another Pee Wee movie coming soon.

Over the last several years, Paul Reubens have been talking about doing more Pee Wee movies in the future and the first one he said he’s doing one with director Judd Apatow. That’s probably what the next film is gonna be.

I’m definitely all for another Pee Wee movie ’cause I love that character. Always had ever since I was a kid. “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure” is one of my favorite movies of all time. Love that movie and still do! The second Pee Wee movie, “Big Top Pee Wee” sucked ass, though. I even used to watch “Pee Wee’s Playhouse” on TV when I was younger, admittedly. Pee Wee is just an entertaining and addicting character.

We deserve to have a good Pee Wee movie on the big screen. When the next Pee Wee movie returns to the big screen, they need to get Danny Elfman back on scoring the music. I hope they can get Danny Elfman back ’cause his score for “Big Adventure” was killer!!! I loved the music for that film.

I’m glad Paul Reubens is back at the character full time. Yeah, Paul had some trouble with the law in his past but that’s life, ya know? People make mistakes and he deserves forgiveness. Time to move on and let him live his life!

Why are people offended by all the nudity in the show “Girls”? I don’t get it???

I don’t understand why people are getting offended and complaining about the nudity in the HBO show, “Girls”, which is a show created by Lena Dunham and Judd Apatow. I find it hypocritical and weird that people would complain about the obsession of nudity in that show when there is nudity all over shows like, “Game of Thrones”, “True Blood”, “Dexter”, etc. You name it… there are naked women all over them. I don’t understand the controversy with the nudity of “Girls”.

My guess as to why people are complaining about the nudity of “Girls” is because the women in the show are pretty young and most of the girls in that show aren’t supermodel types either. I also believe that show “Girls” doesn’t use body-double. When those young women get naked on the show, “Girls”, they are normal girls. You aren’t gonna see plastic looking women with breast implants and you aren’t gonna see airbrushing either. Maybe that’s why people are getting mad at the show ’cause the women aren’t perfect. What you see is what you get.

I haven’t watched much of “Girls”. I did watch most of the first season but haven’t yet seen the second. I’m thinking of buying the DVD sets soon so I can catch up with the show.

I respect the show ’cause what they’re doing takes a lot of guts. In my opinion, Lena shouldn’t give up the nudity ’cause other people don’t like it. If other people don’t like it and are offended by it, they’re doing something right. They should keep the nudity going and keep offending people. As long as the show is creating controversy, they are successful at what they do and the nudity helps draws in more ratings.

If Lena wants to show off her naked body for the whole world to see… more power to her. The thing that this show proved is that Lena is pretty confident in her sexuality and not afraid to show-off even if her body is not so hot. She’s very comfortable with herself. Nothing wrong with that. If she wants to be naked in front of the camera all of the time, that’s her business. It’s clear she doesn’t mind getting naked in front of people and that’s what makes her awesome.

I think she’s a gorgeous woman, by the way. I think I would totally date her myself. I think all the Lena hate is just jealousy. Nothing more.

Report: Did Judd Apatow write a sequel to “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure”???

Pee Wee Herman, the man himself made an appearance at San Diego Comic Con this week. During his panel, he revealed some plot points of Judd Apatow’s script for the new upcoming Pee Wee movie. Pee Wee announced that the movie is similar to “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure”. The new film will be a new adventure and it will be a road movie.

Does this mean his famous bike will return?

More on it, here.

Well, I’m glad the new film will be similar to “Big Adventure”. I think he just hinted that it could be a sequel to that movie. It’ll be great if Dottie, Francis, and Mickey came back played by the same actors. A “Big Adventure” reunion movie would be great!

I’m a huge fan of the Pee Wee character. I’m not ashamed of it. I don’t care how many people thinks it’s weird.

Report: The new Pee Wee movie to be aimed at kids? Paul Reubens explains the plot…

Now that Judd Apatow has been named producer, Paul Reubens explains the plot for the next Pee Wee movie. Yes, it will be a “Playhouse” movie, but most of the movie will be taken place outside of the playhouse, in the outside world. It won’t be the real world like how we are living right now like “Big Adventure” was, but this movie will have characters mostly being puppets. There will only be two scenes in the, Playhouse.

So sounds like this will be a family friendly version of Pee Wee for kids and family?

More on it here:

http://www.collider.com/2010/07/01/pee-wee-herman-film-paul-reubens-judd-apatow/

In my opinion, the movie shouldn’t be aimed at kids. It should be aimed for audiences in their 20’s – 30’s. That’s how the age range was at the Pee Wee live shows in Los Angeles, I believe. Maybe this movie will still be aimed for adults, could be. Reubens could write a lot of inappropriate Pee Wee jokes that kids shouldn’t be hearing. Pee Wee’s live shows is mostly like that.

From the sounds of things look like Pee Wee will be the only human in the film and the rest of the cast will be puppets being voiced by big name actors?

Report: The new Pee Wee movie moves forward and Judd Apatow is hired as producer!!!

Universal Pictures is moving the “Pee Wee’s Playhouse: The Movie” forward and they have hired a producer. That is no one other than Judd Apatow. If you don’t know who Judd Apatow is, he directed such movies like, “Superbad”, “Funny People”, and “The 40 Year Old Virgin”.

Paul Reubens already wrote the script to “Pee Wee’s Playhouse: The Movie” through Universal. Pee Wee Herman will be heading to Broadway in NYC in the Fall.

More on it here:

http://www.collider.com/2010/06/30/pee-wee-herman-judd-apatow-paul-reubens-pee-wees-playhouse/

Hmmmmm, this got me thinking of something. Since Judd is hired as producer and not director, does that mean Universal is saving the director’s job for, Tim Burton? Oh man, that would be sweet if they got Tim Burton on board as director. I’m game for a Paul Reubens and Tim Burton reunion, yes please!

Yep, you betcha I will go see the new Pee Wee movie when it comes out. Hopefully Tim Burton will direct it and maybe Danny Elfman will score for Pee Wee again?

*Crosses fingers for Tim Burton/Danny Elfman*

Bruce Springsteen the boss of rock n’ roll have written songs strictly for movies in Hollywood before. One song is “Streets of Philadelphia” for the film “Philadelphia”, and the other one is “Secret Garden” for the film “Jerry Maguire”. Both of those tunes became major hits even though they weren’t included on any of Springsteen’s albums, just for the soundtracks alone.
