FIVE STARS FOR SNAKES ON A PLANE!

FIVE STARS FOR SNAKES ON A PLANE!

Hey Gang-

Okay, I haven’t seen Snakes on a Plane yet, but I will later today… (going to the Grove in LA this evening). Anyway, Pete Vonder Haar’s review on Film Threat gives the movie five stars! He mentions several things I had already suspected, here’s a few quotes:

“It has the potential to supplant The Rocky Horror Picture Show as the greatest audience participation movie of all time.”

“It is, simultaneously, one of the worst and best movies Ive ever seen.”

“…expect to see the [scary thing 1] [scary thing 2] formula replicated ad nauseum for the next couple of years… I cant wait for Spiders on a Clown, or Public Speaking in Front of Sharks.”

“You get snakes biting eyes, tongues, breasts, and yes even one unfortunate mans schlong. Its hilarious, moronic, and something that must be experienced in a crowded theater. In short, its everything it advertises: its snakes on a motherfucking plane.”

I can’t wait! This is what summer movies are about — having fun. And “fun” was lacking from so many of this season’s movies (yes, I’m talking to you Superman Returns.) You have to check out Pete’s review on Film Threat .

And on the Attack of the Show segment “The Loop” on G4TV on Monday the 21st, I’ll be discussing “Snakes” which should be a very lively discussion.

Gore gone!

P.S. No, I didn’t go to Las Vegas with the rest of the Attack of the Show crew. I’ve been chained to my computer working on a new book and my latest film project… someday soon I’ll tell you all about it. Also, I’m doing a pilot for G4 and I can’t say anything now, but as soon as I can, you’ll know first.

P.P.S. I plan on sneaking a rubber snake into the screening which should generate a few laughs, or I’ll get kicked out. Either way, fun will be had.

P.P.P.S. Also, a little secret, I’m learning ASL, so if you know sign language, I try to sneak in a secret message during every Loop segment, so watch for that.

    i especially enjoyed the line about “Spiders on a Clown” and “Public Speaking in front of Sharks.”

    sequels could be, or trilogy third could be “Afraid to Commit to A Cop Pulling You Over”

    “Needling Root Canal on 50th Birthday.”

    And the porn title could be “Balls in her Mouth.”

    And one star. The review set-up won’t allow me to put them both.

    I plan on sneaking a rubber snake into the screening which should generate a few laughs, or I’ll get kicked out.

    It’s going to take a lot more than that to get you kicked out, trust me. We had guys dressed as snakes chasing a guy dressed as a plane and people throwing snakes and paper airplanes throughout the screening.

    And the porn title could be “Balls in her Mouth.”

    I disagree: Snakes in her Taint.

    Actually, no, I was going to wait until AFTER I saw the movie so the ending would be a surprise. :P
