RT @JohnnySLC @EricDSnider I wonder what all of those surprised library patrons now think of Alec Baldwin.

I’m not crazy, right? My brother Chris really does look like Alec Baldwin. Around the nose and mouth especially. http://bit.ly/b3RLXt
@FatboyRoberts Believe me, there is nothing funnier to him (or our dad) than a fart, even an embarrassing one. NOTHING.
You’ll want to read my brother’s simple yet elegant blog post about a fart in a library. Trust me. http://bit.ly/cqviUl
“Hey, want to watch THE SPY NEXT DOOR at 2 a.m. in a hobo camp??”
Asked friend if he wanted to join me for 1) COP OUT at 2) midnight at 3) Lloyd Center; realized all 3 of those details are unappealing.
You’re in luck! I already did SUPERMAN IV: http://bit.ly/9sBvye
One of the earliest subjects of Eric’s Bad Movies at Film.com was “Superman IV: The Quest for Peace.” I knew in my heart that “Superman III” was also a good candidate, but I resisted it because I had fond memories of it from my childhood. I was 9 when it came out, and I’m pretty sure I hadn’t seen it since then. I was concerned that it might not be bad enough for Eric’s Bad Movies. Then I watched it the other day and within five minutes realized I had nothing to worry about. Holy crap, what an awful thing this is. I didn’t even write about several significant bad elements of it, just because I didn’t want the piece to be 8,000 words long. Anyway, here’s “Superman III” at Film.com.
My other weekly column, What’s the Big Deal?, is about “Rashomon” (1950), which introduced Japanese cinema to the rest of the world. All those “Godzilla” movies? Totally “Rashomon’s” fault. YOU’RE WELCOME.
