@devincf I hate that so many editorials are full of ranting.

“Fired Up” isn’t actually what I’d call “bad.” It has some solid laughs in it. Still a C movie, but that’s better than I expected.
@ElisabethRappe – Best policy is to not read the comments at all, or ignore them if you do. 90% are pointless, mean, and/or stupid.
It’s Oscar season, and there’s lots to talk about!
First, check out my exclusive Cinematical piece on the changes they’ve made for this year’s show.
If you’re in the mood for company, you can join me at Cinematical during the show, the first hour of which (5:30-6:30 Pacific Time) I’ll be live-blogging. It should be fun! Maybe! I’ve never live-blogged before!
Finally, here are my predictions. I’m on a streak here, having correctly predicted 13 out of 24 categories last year and the year before. I want that number to go up, though. I’m pretty sure my ESP is more in tune with Academy thinking this time around. No time to get into the details of why I think these will be the winners — just mark ‘em down, because THESE ARE GOLD! (A complete list of nominees can be found here.)
We go all the way back to 1974, the year of my nativity, for this week’s edition of Eric’s Bad Movies at Film.com: “Zardoz,” an infamous trainwreck starring Sean Connery, a creepy mustache, and a tiny pair of shorts. I’d never even heard of this thing until last year, when I first asked for suggestions for Eric’s Bad Movies and it came up several times. Last week’s call for new recommendations brought it to the surface again, and I could put it off no longer. It’s one of the few Eric’s Bad Movies that I wouldn’t actually discourage anyone from watching, because it’s just so weird. No amount of mocking and ridicule can accurately describe it.
