Snakes on a Plane

I can still vividly remember going to see this film all the way back opening night on August 18th 2006. What a night.

Although I had not kept up with what this film was about, nor did I know that there was this huge internet following behind this film, my friend Matt had been keeping up with it.

The theater was packed, all walks of life were in there, young and old, anticipating this film. The enthusiasm was higher than when I saw Revenge of the Sith - probably because most of the people seeing that had already been disappointed twice before.

Watching the film was a completely new experience to me.

It was schlock at it's best. Snakes biting nipples during the mile high club, a guy peeing has a snake jumps out of the bowl to attach itself to his - um, leg - and so many other hilarious moments that just worked so well. A shoestring plot that may only be bested by "Shoot Em Up." When the villian of the film says "Don't you think I've exhausted every other option?" in response to why he decided to put snakes... on a plane to kill the star witness against him, you know it's gonna be good.

The film is called SNAKES ON A PLANE. So saddle up and sit back and relax watching Samuel L. Jackson fight off a boatload (erm, planeload) of snakes in a camp filled, terribly awesome film.
