The Weekly Review: March 7 – 13



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.




Massa        Snorkel


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.”
