Can we please stop caring about that stupid Snakes movie yet?

contrary to what everyone who is too cool to like SoaP says, watching that at cinerama last thursday night was the most fun I've had at a movie theater ever, bar none.

Those snakes...that plane...

Descent is a much better film for excitement and crowd reaction.

SoaP felt way too staged on screen and in the theater. The Stranger piece was right on - "snake on a boob, snake a dick, snake on an ass." The audience we watched it with held their breath waiting for the mutherfuckers to fly from SJ's mouth.

Anti-climactic at best. Descent wins for thrills, hysteria and commraderie.

Snakes on a Plane is a wonderful "low Culture" topic. There is no High Culture - Low Culture dichotomy. It's all one culture amongst the educated, and urbane.

it should be noted that Bush wants OTHER countries to send troops to Lebanon. our troops seem to be indisposed. something about spreading freedom and raping 12 year old girls.


The Captain of the plane, like the Captain of a ship, has the power to marry the snakes on the plane, whether they're over Massachusetts at the time or not.

Not if they're same sex snakes. Or hermaphroditic snakes.

Me, I'm going to go see The DaVinci Code on Thursday.
