Maybe I'm turning into a grumpy old man at the ripe old age of 30, but I saw a trailer for a film called "Snakes on a plane" and kind of gave up on mankind a little bit more. Am I overreacting?

IMO, no you aren't. Looks like THE MOST STUPID movie ever.

There aren't really any movies anyhow that interest me anymore. Too much violence in them.

Give me reruns of ghost hunters any day over the movies they show now.

Now that is a double fright, fear of dentists and fear of spiders combined, would need one of those aracno type names.

As long as it doesn't involve Barnes and Nobles,books on css and other web related issues and macchiattos I'll be fine ;)

tonight my few evening out at b&n, would be sad to have it ruined by giant monster worms attacking books at barnes and nobles movie. Or Giant Bugs bugging people at tables at barnes and nobles.

Personally, I am looking forward to seeing Snakes on a Plane. I love cheesy horror-type movies, and I think Samuel L. Jackson is going to be GREAT in this movie.

I will be going alone, though ... BT refuses to go with me ...

His best role since Pulp Fiction I bet. :)

I cant wait to see it.

It sounds like a great movie! Enough drama already, it's time for some fun. The director described his movie as a 'popcorn movie'. You go, you enjoy, you tell your friends. I bet it's a big hit at the box office.

But I won't go see it. I hate planes!

I just think they chose a really dumb name. Next they'll have 'Sharks In The Bathtub'.

"Ex-Wife in the Elevator"...

Eeek!

You drank hard to forget...

It took years for the scars to heal...

Just when you thought life was back to normal...

Ex-Wife in the Elevator!

Miami Vice

I won't be seeing Snakes on a Plane and I wish I had not bothered paying to see Miami Vice. Was like a Bad Boys wannabe but without the laughs.

Coming soon: Spiders at the Dentist.

I think it was renamed to Dr. Arachnid, D.D.S.

"Spiders on a Plane" has about enough content to be a skit on SNL or some such.

I think by making Snakes on a Plane R rated they eliminated a big chunk of the potential teen audience who might want to see it.

Anyone seen that film where a major seach engine builds a new data center on the site of an old graveyard, causing its spiders to be possessed by poltergeists and wreak havoc in the hitherto quiet community of Seoville?

Do teenagers still go to the cinema? I guess it depends whether it is downloadable ot not. Plus as a marketer I would have made it R rated to make sure the teens really do want to see it.

I was so surprised to find out that the movie only just opened last weekend! People were talking about it for so long, and when I went to the movies a couple of times recently it wasn't playing, so I figured it had come and gone already.

Making a movie R-rated doesn't keep the younger ones from going.

I have stood in lines many times when I used to go to movies and there were kids getting in that were way under.

Reason why is that Kids run the ticket booths, they aren't going to care who goes in.

A movie about spiders at the dentist? Two giant fears of mine. Allergic to one, and developed an allergy to the other. ;)

Samuel L. Jackson only signed on for this film because of the title. It was later changed to "Pacific Air Flight 121", but Jackson demanded they reverse the change. "We're totally changing that back. That's the only reason I took the job: I read the title."

[imdb.com...]

Right...

It's "acting" ;)

How many non-actors could say that bunch of twaddle with a straight face?

Making a movie R-rated doesn't keep the younger ones from going.

While younger kids can go to an R rated movie if accompanied by an adult, logically then the set of kids seeing movies on their own and the set of kids seeing movies with an adult is most likely larger than the set of kids only seeing movies with an adult. While some theaters may not check ages, the ones in our area appear to do so.

While on an indiviudal basis a chld under 17 can see an R rated movie with an adult, I'm going to take a wild guess here that that more parents would be willing to drop off and pick up their kids off at a movie like Snakes on a Plane than they would be willing to sit through it themselves.

They boast they spent five days (months after filming finished) adding new stuff like "get those m***f***g snakes off this m***f***g plane" - if that isn't aimed at a teen audience, I'm a banana.

When I first heard the title of the movie, I thought it was really lame. But then for some reason I can't wait to see the movie. I still think it'll be a stupid movie, but probably an entertaining one.

My local cinema has a very weird set up.

You buy the tickets. You hand the tickets over before you get to the main screens area. You walk up to the correct screen and go in (no one checks your tickets at this point). Watch Movie, then leave by the same way.

The local kids simply pay to see a "U" - giving them access to the main screens area. They then are free to go to whatever sreen they want - regardless of whether its showing a "U" or an "18".

A lot of the time they'll spend the whole day there - watching one film, coming out, then entering the next screen to see something else.

If only the cinema had been there when I was a kid ;)
