@PetalumaFilms Oh, I know! Thankfully, we were spared that tonight. It would have only made it worse.

I mean, I got a few laughs out of it, but these people were DYING. The air was thick with streams of their laughter-propelled urine.
@FyodorFish Yes, though it really applies to any of them.
Public promo screenings: They find the loudest, fattest people in town, show them a bad comedy, and watch them screech with laughter.
This week’s “Snide Remarks,” wherein I purchase an HDTV: http://tinyurl.com/9m8wkd
@EDouglasWW Ha, yes. Among others.
What I don’t get: People who hate a movie, then hate it MORE when it gets popular. How does its reception make *the movie* any worse?
This week’s devotional reading — that’s what I’m going to call “Snide Remarks” from now on — is entitled “The Book of Highdef,” and it’s about that time when I bought a TV. Fans of creaky, archaic syntax will especially enjoy it!
At Film.com, this week’s edition of Eric’s Time Capsule focuses on “Alive,” the true (cannibalism!) story about the South American (cannibalism!) rugby players who had to eat each other (cannibalism!) after their plane crashed in the Andes Mountains. The movie was released 16 years ago this week. I remember being a freshman in college and seeing commercials on TV in the dorm basement and thinking, “A movie about cannibalism? This I gotta see!” Then for some reason I didn’t actually see it until last week. Apparently the subject matter isn’t as compelling as I thought it was.
