RT @BrianLynch Always remember, there was a hit movie about scientists who make sharks smarter, and then are surprised when it goes wrong.

BANDSLAM is a rather pleasant surprise: a tween movie that doesn’t pander too much and isn’t too stupid. (“Not too stupid!”-Eric D Snider.)
IN THE LOOP still wickedly funny the second time. I want “Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult” to become a catchphrase.
Whew! Such a day it’s been! But enough about my personal life. Here’s a new edition of “Snide Remarks,” entitled “How Sweat It Is,” about my perspiration habits.
Over at Film.com, “Mystery Men” is the subject of Eric’s Ten-Year Itch. I also have a review of Hollywood’s Shameful Secret® “The Collector” there. And at Cinematical, here’s my review of “Aliens in the Attic,” plus an item about the word “retard” being removed from the DVD version of “Miss March,” plus an item defending Netflix’s honor against a cranky old man who writes for Time magazine.
By the way, the “retard” item led, rather improbably, to my being interviewed by NPR’s Neda Ulabi. Her story will air sometime this week. I will say something about it on Twitter (which means it will show up in the right-hand column here) once I find out when.
