Snakes Secret

New Line Studios has had unprecedented extraordinary success (especially in this day and age of the internet where anyone in the world can know anything in seconds) in keeping details of Snakes on a Plane secret (I'm assuming there's more to it than just some snakes on this plane...).

The film opens today without benefit of preview showings or even screenings for critics, although no one is expecting the film to bite the dust. Even vaguely intelligent moviegoers usually avoid a film released without advance screenings because it can indicate a studio knows the movie is bad (Batman and Robin anyone?) however Snakes is unusual in so far as people who have never seen it already call themselves 'fans' and many hope it will be awful.

"Bad Movies are special," New York Post critic Kyle Smith wrote "genre flicks - shoot-'em-ups, stabathons, disaster epics -- that make you holler and stomp for 90 minutes. Then when the lights go up and someone asks you how it was, you reply, 'Oh that? That was a Bad Movie.' A Bad Movie is a bad movie you watch over and over."

What do I think? I think it's going to kick muthafuckin' ass! Check out this youtube file for some Snakes related hilarity.

But does Mace use his Purple Lightsabre?

It think it'd be good if Mace, Er.. Sam was going through the luggeage compartment looking for weapons and he finds a Master Replicas Force FX Mace Windu Lightsaber, he should just look up, smile and wink at the camera and continue on his mission to find a speargun or something.

Well unfortunatly, there was no Lightsaber, but there was a speargun!

Listen to the next episode of 2IGTV for the full review!
