Weekly link roundup – May 7-13
Bon voyage, me! I’m leaving Monday night for the Cannes Film Festival, located in far-away “France”! Very excited about this, as I’ve never been to this festival (or even this country) before. My podcast cohost Jeff Bayer and I will be doing daily shows from Cannes starting on Thursday, reviewing the movies we’ve seen and recounting the presumably hilarious things that have befallen us. You may keep abreast of this at the Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider website, or by keeping an eye on my Twitter feed. Merci in advance! (That is French.)

Eric’s Bad Movies: “The Initiation” (1984), a generic ’80s slasher movie set in a sorority of oft-nude young women.
Re-Views: “Borat” (2006), which I loved at the time. Is still very nice?
My Shame List: “Jackie Brown” (1997), Quentin Tarantino’s third film and the only one I hadn’t seen.
