The Ghost Writer

Let’s get this out of the way upfront: Roman Polanski is a frakked-up man. He’s lived through a lot of horrors, but well, he raped a child, and that’s something that’s not forgivable. That said, the man does have a way with a camera (and a script). The bastard.

Anyway, “The Ghost Writer” is the story of a disgraced politician, Great Britain’s Former Prime Minister Adam Lang (Pierce Brosnan in fine form as a Tony Blair homage), whose first draft of his memoir has been rejected by his editors. His publishing house has called in a new ghost writer (Ewan McGregor) after the previous ghost writer’s bizarre suicide.

Tuck Everlasting

Ok readers, we’re going to begin with a question this week: ever seen the movie “Holes” (2003)?

It’s based on the book of the same name by Louis Sachar, an author who specializes in weird kids’ books (such as “Wayside School is Falling Down” and “Sideways Stories From Wayside School”). The movie version of the Newbery Medal-winning YA novel is a completely faithful adaptation that unfortunately lacks all the charm of the crazy-fun book.
