Snakes on a Plane in a Movie Theater on a Friday

Several members of our team at work went to see Snakes on a Plane on Friday. A number of us have been looking forward to this movie and were jazzed about it. I didn’t expect it to be a good movie, but I expected it to be enjoyable. It actually exceeded my expectations in a number of ways. They even made somewhat of an attempt to come up with a plot! Not that you need one, given that in this movie, you have motherf***’n snakes on a motherf***’n plane. I mean, how awesome is that?

I don’t know if he was kidding or not, but Samuel L. Jackson mentioned on the daily show (video) that he’ll be in the sequel. I don’t know whether a sequel would be a good thing or a bad thing, but if they make it, it should definitely be called “Snakes on a Plane Again.”

And to further add to the, um, coolness? … someone made an All Your Snakes are Belong to Us video.

Oh, and Alex Graveley is now a zombie.

I am a leaf on the wind. Watch how I soar.

Okay, Serenity absolutely rocks, and if you haven’t seen it, you should. Preferably after watching at least a few episodes of Firefly first. It surpassed my expectations and I felt it was a good ending to the series. That is, if it’s really an end. Part of the credits indicated that they have reserved the rights for two more movies.

Largely, Serenity felt to me like a very long episode of Firefly, although more movie-like. Unlike the series, I think there was more action than quiet crew times. Still, I loved (almost) every moment of it. The audience laughed and cried through the movie, and to me, that makes it a success.
