Movie Review- Kate Winslet Nude ...um, I mean, "The Reader"

Colonel Colonel is still sleeping off the after-effects of his birthday celebration, so this is Staff Sergeant Sterno with our latest MMB Movie Review. Today- "The Reader".

As bibliophiles, we went to see "The Reader" in the expectation of seeing a scholarly movie about books. Then Kate Winslet got nude.

And then she got nude again.

And then she got nude again.

Kate Winslet gets nude a lot in this movie. There's also a plot involving Nazis and war crimes and coming-of-age boys and some other stuff, but basically, kate Winslet gets nude.


4 STARS !!!!!
5 STARS!!!!!!!
10 STARS, whatever. did I mention that Kate Winslet spends most of the movie nude?

I'm just waiting for the dvd.

Second thoughts...

Did we all make an awful mistake? In an upcoming interview with Esquire Magazine, Sarah Palin shows exactly the caliber of mind we missed out on when we didn't elect her to the Vice Presidency-

Palin said she named [her daughter] Bristol in part for Bristol, Conn. -- home of the sports network ESPN. "When I was in high school, my desire was to be a sportscaster," she said. "Until I learned that you'd have to move to Bristol, Connecticut. It was far away. So instead, I had a daughter and named her Bristol."

Isn't that exactly the sort of reasoning our country needs right now? What have we done???
