Let the backlash begin. Benjamin Button is Forrest Gump told in reverse through the eyes of the old Titanic lady. Am I wrong? Nope. When I first saw the film I wanted to love it. I ended up liking it a lot. But, time hasn’t healed any wounds. The cuts are deeper. The film is flawed.
Actress Kate Winslet was out and about in the West Village wearing all black, including a fedora yesterday. You know how people can say Bill Murray could read the phonebook and you’d laugh? Well, Kate Winslet is such a good actress, she could freestyle rap in her pillow, and I’d be moved.
Charice Pempengco stops for a smile after leaving the Good Morning America studios the other day. The singer has an amazing voice and recently opened for Celine Dion. The good news is Pempengco doesn’t hit herself in the chest repeatedly like Dion. The bad news is everytime I hear Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On,” I’m still hopeful that the line “near…far…” will turn into this Grover skit. It’s not to be.
