Snakes on a Plane

By maecuff ·
Okay, so I'm in my office talking to two of my employees and one of them hadn't heard anything about the Snakes on a Plane movie, so we're telling him about it. blah blah blah..Samuel L Jackson..blah blah blah..stupid name..etc. In the MIDDLE of this conversation, my phone rings. I picked up the phone and it's Samuel L Jackson, telling me to see the movie Snakes on a Plane. As soon as I heard the voice I immediately put it on speaker and we just sat there dumfounded, while a pre-recorded message (personalized) told me to go see the movie we were discussing.

I figured my husband as behind it somehow. There is a movie promo where you can send an email or a phone call, personalize it (name, hobbies, traits, etc.)

I doubt that you could possibly time it as well as my husband did, but it IS entertaining..

Cult Classic

by mordacity In reply to Snakes on a Plane

I have never known a non-sequel movie to have such a cult following before it's even been released. It's just perfect. By the way, I so sent that to my wife. We've been going around saying "I have had it with you m*****f***ing snakes on this m*****f***ing plane!" for weeks now.

What's in a name?

This movie sounds so bad, it has to be good!!

I am a huge Sammy L fan, so I will have to see it for sure. I am not sure if I will go to see it at the big screen though. I have made my trip there for this year already!

I'm also a fan

by maecuff In reply to What's in a name?

but I'll skip this one. I hate flying and I hate snakes. Not my kind of entertainment. I saw the trailer when I took my kids to see Clerks II and it creeped me out..

Wasn't Samuel L....

by DMambo In reply to What's in a name? one of the 80's Charlie Bronson movies. It was a sequel to one where his daughter is kidnapped and raped and he, as a normally peaceable architect, goes on a vigilante revenge rampage killing all the perps. (That probably doesn't narrow down the film history of Charles Bronson very much.)

I do remember seeing a youthful SLJ running with a group of mostly white young toughs dressed in their Members Only jackets with the sleeves pushed up and jelled mullets. As I recall, he suffered a painful death immediately preceeding a pithy line by our hero.

Does anyone remember the sub movie?

by jdclyde In reply to Snakes on a Plane

There was a sub that had snakes on it, a LONG friggen time ago.

Sailor got eggs, but didn't seem to know they were for poisonous snakes? they hatch and start killing. Of course it now seems strange that some were as big as they were if they all came from eggs. Wow, that was a long time ago!

The title was Fer-de-Lance. During shore leave in South America the sailor bought the little snakes/eggs because their name was the same as the sub's name. If I recall David Janssen was the lead who came up with the idea of dropping the sub's tempurature to near freezing.

And the question fo the day is

by jdclyde In reply to Fer-de-Lance

did you KNOW that or did you look it up?

I do remember them dropping the temp as the solution.

Because I was fairly young at the time, I only remembered bits and peices. 1974? I was only seven! I guess I don't feel bad for just how little of it I remember now! B-)

With the exception of the year I remembered it, I was 12 in 1974. It was well done for a made for TV movie.
