If you’re not an a-hole when you post comments at Cinematical, well, you’re in the minority, let’s just leave it at that.

Here is my 3-year-old nephew (from my avatar) kissing his big sister. PREPARE TO DIE OF CUTE. http://bit.ly/cgwt8h
I need suggestions for Eric’s Bad Movies! Here are the guidelines, and what I’ve already covered. http://bit.ly/ds6P4g
Ever since Eric’s Bad Movies debuted at Film.com, almost two years ago, you guys have been extremely helpful in suggesting suitable films. In fact, of the 95 movies I’ve covered as of this week, probably 15 of them were ones I’d never even heard of until you recommended them. This puts me in the unusual position of being grateful to have discovered “Gymkata,” for example, a movie that I doubt had previously ever produced positive feelings of any kind.
It’s getting harder to find good material — especially as the list of films I’ve already covered grows and grows — and so I come to you again now for more suggestions. Post them in the comments, or feel free to send me an e-mail or a tweet. The guidelines are below, along with a list of what I’ve already covered (including tomorrow’s entry! See if you can spot it among the already-rans!).
Thanks for your help! Eric’s Bad Movies is really a community effort, except that I’m the only one who gets paid for it.
Guidelines for Eric’s Bad Movies
1. It needs to be really bad. Films that are merely mediocre are a waste of time.
2. The film should be considered bad by most people, not just you. I don’t want to have to convince the reader that the movie is bad; I want us to be on the same page from the get-go. I know it’s hard to gauge a consensus sometimes, but use common sense. No matter how much you happen to hate “Titanic” personally, surely you understand that yours is not the prevailing opinion.
The promos for Zach Galifianakis on SNL are, no surprise, very funny. http://bit.ly/cYS3vR
