Movie Time!


Snakes on a Plane Samuel L. Jackson stars as an FBI agent transporting a witness when hundreds of deadly snakes are released on their plane.

I probably shouldn’t rip on this, especially not sight unseen. It doesn’t appear to involve any imaginary beings, or magic charms and incantations, or un-killable bogymen back from the dead. Still, is this a joke? I mean, why would somebody spend so much money to make a tribute to what is arguably the worst disaster movie ever made, Fer De Lance?

Oh! I just love those cute little snakies in your pic! I want one! As for the movie, think I know someone I would like to hog tie and force to watch it with his eyelids superglued open.....

Hmm... Yeah, releasing hundreds of deadly snakes on a plane does seem a little convoluted. I mean, hard to picture them at the airport going, "Give us your after shave and bottled water, but OK, you can carry on that writhing backpack, no prob..."

Not only is Hollywood making a crappy movie, but a crappy movie that is a remake of a crappy movie. Double Whammie!!!

I just wonder if we are going to have a series of movies like this one. Think "Killer Ants on a Plane", "Bees In a Helicopter", "Alligators in a Submarine" and so on... Oh the possibilities... :-)

sh,

I've heard that the name "Snakes on a Boat" has been copywrited recently. I, personally, will see SoaP. I mean, it's probably the only decent movie to come out this year.

At least the plot makes sense - to a point. Of course it's stupid and could never, ever happen. But, as I always say about movies, religion, and the paranormal, "We'll believe the impossible, but don't even try to sell us the improbable."

breakerslion, very good point. Yet, Airplane! did the very same thing. Disaster movies are perhaps one of the worst kind of movie out there, with such prime examples as Titanic, Twister, Armageddon, the War of the Worlds. The list goes on. Perhaps this movie, as a farce, could be worth the film it's printed on.

Darius: I haven't seen the movie, but perhaps the perp disguised it as a colostomy bag....

Webs: If they can turn Rocky and Bullwinkle into a movie starring real actors and not animated, there is no bottom to that cesspool!

sh: SHUSSSHHHH! You'll give them ideas! Of course, they'll retitle it, like they did with "Skank on a Bus" ("Speed").

Drunken Tune: Welcome. Good point about the improbable versus the impossible. You left out my two campy favorites, "The Towering Inferno" and "The Posidon Adventure" The Irwin Allen version of course. I always had a soft spot for his work since I was such a fan of his crappy monsters in "Lost in Space". Who needed drugs when you had that on the tube?

Kristine: hahahahahahahaha!
