MOVIE COLUMNS:
Eric’s Bad Movies: “Bats” (1999). Starring bats. As a personal challenge, I didn’t make any Batman jokes. [Film.com]
What’s the Big Deal?: “Lawrence of Arabia” (1962). No Batman jokes in this one either, though it required less restraint in this case. [Film.com]
What to Expect When You’re Expecting “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.” I had to make some educated guesses. [Film.com]

MY OTHER STUFF:
Snide Remarks: “My Body Is a Wonderland” — Gross descriptions of gross things
Blog: Eric’s Bad Movies needs more suggestions, por favor.

MISCELLANEOUS MERRIMENT:
Friend and fellow writer Erin McCarthy has a friend named Kate who freaks out a lot when she watches scary movies, and apparently talks a lot when she watches movies in general. Erin made a hilarious video called “Watch Kate Watching ‘The Thing.’” [Twitvid]

Friend and fellow writer “Cole Abaius” is a terrific interviewer. Here he is talking to legendary stuntman Vic Armstrong on this week’s edition of the Reject Radio podcast. [Film School Rejects]

Former friend and fellow writer Peter Hall stopped being my friend when he made me afraid to sit down anymore. Read this and be likewise afraid. [Daily Infographic]

Uh-oh! Looks like the contest to be Obama’s biggest fan has a new frontrunner! [Twitpic]

A Hoth realtor addresses some of the concerns being raised over his decision to turn Han Solo’s deceased tauntaun into a modest studio apartment. [McSweeney's]

Speaking of which, Obi-Wan Kenobi is dead, Vader says. (The attention to detail on this parody is very impressive.) [Galactic Empire Times]

My old SLC pal Scott Renshaw wrote a highly entertaining and informative cover story about his first attempt to drink coffee. [City Weekly]

I enjoyed Tina Fey on “Saturday Night Live” last week. Here’s a sketch they cut after dress rehearsal, “Great Women Writers Throughout History.” [Hulu]

This article about David Eagleman’s research into the way we perceive time totally blew my mind. Then I read it again, and it blew my mind again. Fascinating! [The New Yorker]

    Loved your bad movie review on “Bats” but I miss those funny ways you used to plug your personal website at the end. You can visit Eric at his website but just make sure room temperature of your computer room is set between 66 and 74 degrees. Okay well, that’s the best one I can think of for “Bats” but I’m sure you can come up with a better one :)
