Beyond “Battlefield Earth”

How would it feel to be the credited writer of the worst movie of the decade? J.D. Shapiro, whose name is on the screenplay for “Battlefield Earth” knows exactly how it feels and he’s written a funny and revealing explanation of just how he came to work on the Razzie winner for the worst movie of the oughts. Let’s just say that this less than ideal career move, like so many bad career moves, began below the belt. You definitely want to read this.

Now, whenever I catch a few minutes of “Battlefield Earth” on cable, it’s not the inane dialogue or the insane visual approach I notice so much as the acting. And it’s not the acting in general so much as one particular performance…

You know, I think we need an instant replay of the key moment from that scene…
