@ScottEWeinberg @devincf One of the more excruciating bad movies I’ve watched. Hard to sit through. Nothing more painful than bad comedy.

@ScottEWeinberg It was actually harder to write about than you’d think. Not all bad movies lend themselves readily to mockery, it turns out.
Here is “Hudson Hawk,” this week’s edition of Eric’s Bad Movies at Film.com. Technical difficulties delayed it, but they couldn’t keep it down forever! (Full disclosure: One of the technical difficulties was that I didn’t finish writing it until this morning.)
I told someone I was going to do this film, and he said, “That’s too easy!” Yes, so you’d think. But just watching the movie proved painful, and writing about it took more effort than it usually does. Some bad films lend themselves readily to mockery and dissection; others, like “Hudson Hawk,” are awful in less easily analyzed ways. Perhaps someday I shall write a book on the different kinds of bad movies, and how some are better suited to Eric’s Bad Movies than others.
In the meantime, enjoy a trip down Bruce Willis Lane.

@williambgoss Oy gevalt, may “The Burning Plain” just plain burn.
@williambgoss Is that thing really being released? Ugh. I saw it at TIFF and ignored it. Reviewing it will mean having to watch it again.
Idiots at next booth are discussing how Obama wasn’t born in the U.S. and is only 6% black. And they’re *serious*.
@DawnTaylor666 and I are making the clickety-clack on our laptops at a local eatery. Jealous???????
