This guy @ZALESKI4CONGRES is a train wreck! Calls people names, then objects to name-calling; rants like semi-literate teenage girl; etc.

Despite all evidence to the contrary, this person is 1) a grown-up and 2) running for political office. http://twitter.com/ZALESKI4CONGRES
Anyone know much about the Sarasota Film Festival? Good, bad, big, small? Only thing I know is it’s in Florida, which is not a plus.
This week’s edition of Eric’s Bad Movies at Film.com deals with the redundantly titled “D-War: Dragon Wars,” a direct-to-video movie that somehow finagled its way into actual theaters in 2007. This is the most recent film I’ve done in Eric’s Bad Movies — usually things from the 2000s are off-limits because I reviewed them when they came out. But “D-War: Dragon Wars” wasn’t screened for critics when it opened (big surprise), and I never got around to seeing it until now. It’s been sitting there, ripe, awaiting mockery all this time.
Then there is What’s the Big Deal? at Film.com, this week addressing Charlie Chaplin’s “City Lights” (1931), one of the best films from the silent era. (Actually, it came out after the silent era. That’s one of the interesting aspects covered in the article. Go read it.)
Also side by side: Louis Gossett Jr. and a Gremlin. http://www.ericdsnider.com/images/firewalkergremlin.jpg
In my defense, here’s Max von Sydow and Christopher Plummer side by side. http://www.ericdsnider.com/images/vonsydowplummer.jpg
Everyone thought Elias Koteas in SHUTTER ISLAND was Robert De Niro. And I thought Max von Sydow was Christopher Plummer. We’re all idiots.

Seeing a Martin Scorsese movie after seeing a Garry Marshall movie is like viewing a Picasso after being kicked in the nads.
Remember, everyone: body pillows shaped like Twilight characters are lame and stupid, but a tauntaun sleeping bag is awesome.
