Snakes on a Plane! Snakes on a Plane!

Saturday, August 19th, 2006

I went with some friends to the 10:00 preview showing of Snakes on a Plane at Cornelius Cimena 9. Let me start by saying the experience was great! I’ve never had such a good time in a movie theater. The movie was everything I’d expected: it featured great Sam-killing-snake action, great snake-killing-people action, and it was corny to the point of hilarity.

The cinematic quality of the movie is pretty low. During the exterior shots of the plane, you can practically see the string holding it up against a painted backdrop. Some of the computer generated snakes look really fake. The acting is sub-par; some of the dialog is just awful.

But it’s the poor quality that makes it even more funny. The entire theater was engrossed in the movie, clapping and cheering whenever Samuel L. Jackson killed a snake, or a snake killed someone. We counted down the timer until the snakes were released, we said “I’VE HAD IT WITH THESE MOTHERFUCKING SNAKES ON THIS MOTHERFUCKING PLANE” right along with Jackson, we sang along with the music video at the end. There were a couple scary moments, and there was one oh-my-god moment at the end where the theater went silent.

I would love to go see the movie again. It was good enough to warrant a second viewing. But I doubt it will be as purely awesome as Thursday night was. Like my paper said “It’s an A+ movie if you see it with a crowd in theaters this weekend, but any time afterward, it will be a C-, a poorly written, acted, and filmed B movie.”

Here’s my own thoughts about the movie:
