Despite its Harlequin-romance title, Never Let Me Go is quite possibly the best book I’ve read by a living author. So it was with mixed emotions that I recently read that a film adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro’s novel is in the works. Hollywood is bound to screw it up, I thought. Then again, the movies did a pretty good job with another Ishiguro story, The Remains of the Day.
Sandra Bullock was quite modest when she accepted the Best Actress Oscar for The Blind Side. I am convinced that Academy voters were actually voicing approval for Bullock’s nude scene in the atrocious The Proposal (above). After all, it worked for Diane Keaton in Something’s Gotta Give. Wait … never mind.
I have no comment on this guy, New York Congressman Eric Massa. I just wanted an excuse to run a picture of him and an excuse to say “snorkeling.”
