Hey movie bloggers: Until you learn the difference between “premiere” and “premier,” you’re not allowed to use either one.
@williambgoss You watch TV with commercials? As in, without a DVR? What are you, a savage?
@jooshanoosh “I think I need to plant blueberry bushes next to my driveway.” Is that a euphemism? If so, I’m all for it.
RT @scottEweinberg Twitter will have 1 hour of planned maint. tomorrow — as opposed to the unplanned kind that happens 10 hours a weekday.
Why are beings from Vulcan called Vulcans, not Vulcanites or Vulcanians or something? That don’t make no sense. Seriously. Anyone?

“Ghosts of Girlfriends Past”: Even the McConaughey character’s NAME, Connor Mead, makes me want to smack him.
In honor of the new “Star Trek” film hitting theaters tomorrow, this week’s edition of Eric’s Bad Movies at Film.com is about “Star Trek V: The Final Frontier,” which is generally regarded, by people who think about such things, as the worst of the “Star Trek” movies.
As noted in the column, my firsthand experience with “Star Trek” is minimal. Yet considering I’ve never seen an entire episode of the original series, nor any of the films with the original cast (except, now, “Star Trek V”), it’s amazing how much I just know about “Star Trek.” That’s a good sign that something has permeated the culture: when people don’t even have to watch it to know everything about it. It’s also much more efficient. People have been talking about “Star Trek” so much for the last 40 years that actually watching the show would be redundant.
I watched this clip, but the only message I got from it is “I, Sean Hannity, am a douchebag.” http://tinyurl.com/cwtrut
