We’re down to only 20 movies left to Certify Weird…
Some of you may have noticed that the site has been having periodic downtime lately. Please bear with this as we try to get things sorted out behind the scenes. (It may be a consequence of having a giant site full of almost ten years worth of material, and a concomitantly large database to serve all that weird and wonderful content up). We have no full-time professional webmaster on staff to debug these kinds of issues, so it may take a while to gete verything sorted out. If you find the site down, check back in an hour and you’ll usually find everything peachy.
As for next week: Alfred Eaker is still recovering from the trauma inflicted by Slender Man and The Meg, and demanded a week off. We’ll re-run one of his old columns on Monday.

Here’s hoping for weirder next week.
Time for our weekly disclaimer regarding the reader-suggested review queue below: since we will definitely not be getting to all of these (though we will pick out the occasional title, as you’ll see this week), you can consider this a list of “honorable mentions” for your own perusal and amusement. That out of the way, here’s how the ridiculously-long-and-still-growing reader-suggested review queue now stands: “Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story” (next week!); Genius Party; The Idiots; “Premium” (depending on availability); Spermula; Killer Condom; Sir Henry at Rawlinson End; Moebius (1996); The Continue reading WHAT’S IN THE PIPELINE
