The Must List

Posted on

TV
1. RAOUL BOVA
Blessed with great genes (as the hunk in Under the Tuscan Sun) and great jeans (in a new Gap ad), he actually makes sleeping in pants seem sexy.

BOOKS
2. THE SANDMAN: ENDLESS NIGHTS, BY NEIL GAIMAN
Our lonesome nights are over. After seven years, the Sandman (and lovely li’l Death) triumphantly returns.

MUSIC
3. ‘KILL BILL: VOLUME 1’ SOUNDTRACK
A: Nancy Sinatra, the RZA, and Neu! Q: What kind of deliriously appropriate music did Quentin Tarantino choose to punctuate his poetic splatterfest?

MOVIE
4. THE STATION AGENT
A dwarf, a hot-dog vendor, a sad mom. Sounds like a bad parody of a Sundance movie, but, au contraire, it’s an indie winner.

MUSIC
5. FRANK SINATRA
The Chairman is back on board! Well, kinda: From Oct. 14 to 19, Radio City Music Hall hosts a ”virtual” concert, with a 40-piece band accompanying Ol’ Blue Eyes, as seen in recently discovered footage. Sing, Frankie baby, sing!

BOOKS
6. TRAIN, BY PETE DEXTER
Against the noirish, sun-dappled gloom of early-’50s Los Angeles, a moody white police sergeant and a young black caddie mix murder and golf in a hot-to-the-touch novel by the author of Paris Trout.

MUSIC
7. ME & MY BROTHER, THE YING YANG TWINS
More goofy rhymes from Hotlanta-based party rappers D-Roc and Kaine. In a word: Crunktastic.

TV
8. DEGRASSI: THE NEXT GENERATION
The N’s addictive junior-high series is sprawling, relevant, entertaining — imagine Dickens as a shy eighth grader.

MOVIE
9. OUT OF TIME
The Must List was a tad worried that this would be another dime-a-Denzel genre pic, a la John Q or Fallen. But no: The plot is wrenchingly twisty — he’s guilty and he’s innocent.

TV
10. JAMES CAAN IN ‘LAS VEGAS’
”Ma, it’s Jimmy….Whaddaya mean you missed me on my swell new NBC drama? I totally rock the #%*& house!”
