HAHA, JUST KIDDING RIGHT? IT’S FRIDAY LET’S HAVE FUN! You guys, I was just kidding about that oil stuff, don’t even worry about it. PARTY! PARTY! PARTY! We have to get out there and celebrate having made it through another week. It really is an incredible accomplishment. We should all be very proud. Goodnight!

Scott Baio IS KD Lang

#3 Capu Flapu And The Spasmatic Pentagrams | Apr 26th Score:135

This film has The National’s “All The Wine” on the soundtrack. Thus it cannot be the WMOAT.

Also, yes, I do still make CD mixtapes for girls I like.

Also, yes, I am still single.

Dear Videogum Staff: I once again nominate the 2009 film Amelia, the biopic about aviatrix Amelia Earhart starring Hilary Swank and Richard Gere, for The Worst Movie of All Time. This is a truly awful film.

So. Here we are: at the end of the films for this round. Before too long, the next batch of films will be named. So my heart is filled with a dreadful anticipation, a hope I fear only because it will hurt so much if it is squashed. We shall know with the new list if this film—my nemesis, my archrival, the Gwyneth Paltrow to my Gabe Delahaye—will be eviscerated in WMOAT in the next session. I am elated yet fearful, wary that the giddy, fiery hope I feel at the moment will last for two seconds only to come to a quick, painful end.

But even if it doesn’t—and I sincerely hope it does, but if it doesn’t—I shall soldier on past the disappointment to continue my dogged crusade to have this film exposed in this forum for the pretentious, windy, plotless, intelligence-insulting drivel it is. I shall continue undaunted despite the lump on my head and my life-long fear of broomsticks, toy cars, and fashionable outdoor tables. I shall be here next week and every week with a similar message till this film’s inclusion is secure. Good day and thank you for your time.

Ed. note: It is always nice to see an inside joke taken as far as it can possibly be taken, and then A LITTLE FURTHER EVEN.

Steve Winwood | Apr 28th Score:-36
Yeesh, get a life, loser. If your only joy in life is correcting people’s spelling and grammar mistakes then you are one step away from becoming Adolph Hitler.

This Week’s Editor’s Choice

Ian | Apr 26th Score:76

Gabe’s upset since Betty White wouldn’t go to prom with him in 1937

Posted in: Who Is Betty White’s Publicist?

Ed. note: It is always a little weird when you guys bring up my personal life in the comments, but at least get your facts straight. I didn’t ask Betty White to go to prom, Betty White asked ME. It was very shocking at the time. So obviously, as a gentleman, I had to refuse. Also, it was 1927.
