A sure way to get me to unfollow you is to live-tweet something. I usually re-follow once you’re finished, but NOT ALWAYS!

(No, I’m not going to post a link. Just expressing bemusement at some people’s self-delusion.)
Rejected Online Film Critics Society applicant insists it couldn’t *possibly* be because her writing skills! Oh yes, honey. Yes it can.
Apparently the director of the upcoming “Predators” movie is an anal nimrod. http://us.imdb.com/name/nm0030735/

Whoops, here’s the real link to Eric’s Bad Movies: “The Care Bears Movie” http://tinyurl.com/ns4fnh (Thanks, Jen)
It’s kind of fun to have Eric’s Bad Movies at Film.com be thematically linked to one of the week’s new releases. If nothing else, it helps me choose subjects for the column, a process that would otherwise be fairly random. So this week, in vague conjunction with the new animated “Ice Age” movie hitting theaters, Eric’s Bad Movies deals with “The Care Bears Movie,” which hit theaters 24 years ago and became the most lucrative non-Disney animated feature up to that point. That wasn’t much of a feat, since hardly anyone besides Disney even tried animation in those days, but still.
I seem to be doing a lot of children’s movies lately in Eric’s Bad Movies at Film.com. That’s probably because so many children’s movies are awful. The people who make them seem to think that since kids are their target audience, that means the movies don’t have to make sense. Note that Michael Bay follows the same policy, and is rewarded for it. Michael Bay thinks of his fans the same way the makers of bad kids’ movies think of kids. Ponder that, “Transformers” defenders.

(Previous tweet refers to Roger Moore the film critic, not Roger Moore the James Bond. I have no opinion on the latter Moore.)
@williambgoss They set up a screening ONLY for Roger Moore? No wonder he’s an a-hole, if he’s used to being treated like royalty.
