My Sassy Girl is one of a very small list of films that I consider worth more than a single viewing. It was released a few years back in S. Korea and can be picked up on DVD with English subtitles pretty much anywhere by now, I think.
Anyway, I heard a little whiles back that it had been optioned by DreamWorks for an English remake, and I just found out that it’s being directed by Gurinder Chadha of Bride and Prejudice and Bend it Like Beckham fame. And I don’t know if that’s a good thing. Mind you, I don’t dislike her work, exactly. I just don’t really like it either.
Along a similar vein, it seems that Mr. Spielberg is going to do an adaptation of… wait for it… Tintin. Yes, you read right. I don’t know how far along the scripting and/or filming is, but this also does not bode well. But who knows, maybe it’ll all turn out well.
Of course, this mention of Tintin let’s me segue quite nicely into my next little bit on guilty pleasures. Watch for it.
And before I go off and find some food, much thanks to all the folks who make this blog one of their guilty (or perhaps not-so-guilty) pleasures.
The album from which I obtained the song of the moment is also one of my current guilty pleasures. It seems I have much to ask pardon for.
A pat on the back if you can tell me who the artist is. A hint: he’s from Toronto.
Of course, it’s possible that he’s getting some playtime now. So it might be easy.
