Movie Review on My Blog

19 Aug

I have to admit, I had one of the best moviegoing experiences of the year when I went to see Snakes on a Plane on Saturday. I mean, sure, the guys in the back row who were hissing all through the movie (including the trailers) and who were trying to do a call-and-response cheer of “Snakes!” “On a Plane!” before it started became a little much, but really, this is a totally fun movie that completely lives up to the hype and is actually worth seeing. And if you see it with the right kind of crowd, as I did, one that was totally into it (and I, personally, was quite excited to see the movie), you’ll like it even more. I mean, the first shot of the snakes gets an applause. Snakes attack in every way imaginable, and they bite every possible body part (the guy who gets it while taking a leak is particularly painful to watch), and each time, it’s funnier and funnier. And when Sam Jackson says his big line near the end of the movie, man did the crowd go nuts. Suffice it to say, I loved it all — even the cheesy music video that plays over the end credits (the song is by a group called Cobra Starship). I wouldn’t say the movie is all that scary — it’s too ridiculous to be scary — but it stays on the right side of the stupid–silly line enough to actually be considered a decent movie (I said “decent” — not good or great). And to tell the truth, I’d even pay to see it again. So yeah, I am really recommending this one highly. It gets a B+ from me.

    […] You go hoping it’ll be so bad that it’s awesome fun, that the filmmakers and the audience will be in on the joke just as much as you are, and that you won’t regret the past two hours when the lights go up. (You know, like The Expendables or Snakes on a Plane.) […]
