    Sounds like a fun movie but what's it about?

    The song, "Snakes On a Plane (Bring It)", by the band Cobra Starship is amazing...

    I found out today (thanks to Rolling Stone) that Gabe from Midtown is in the band and he's the one that put the 'supergroup' together. Peter Wentz of Fall Out Boy begged to be able to put the soundtrack together, so thanks to him, the soundtrack will be filled with pop punk phenomenons. Can't wait.....

    I watched that music video three or four times in a row. It is addictive, like crack.

    Samuel L. Jackson is on the cover of Entertainment Weekly with a photo shoot devoted to Snakes on a Plane. Killer stuff, they're all classy airport photos just with a heap of snakes in'em as well.

    The first one in the article here is easily my favorite of the photo spread, the condescending suburban look the blonde is giving Jackson is pitch perfect.

    I'm hoping the late showings tonight aren't sold out. As a silly gag, a friend and I were thinking of walking in with rubber snakes adorned around our necks like Jake the Snake Roberts from WWF days. Not sure if this would even be allowed in a movie theater, but it'd be fairly dorky fanboyism.

    Hopefully I can make it tonight, if not then tomorrow is for sure.
    I was gonna wait for my GF to get back Tuesday, but can't.:)

    I figure we all owe SOAP a big opening weekend. Who knows, maybe studios will start listening to fans if this does well.:)

    I saw this at midnight last night and it DID NOT let me down at all. Not only is this movie pure fucking fun, it's actually pretty damn good considering what it's all about. The theater was packed with people going nuts. Throwing beach balls, rubber snakes and a few guys that were so tanked they provided unnecessary shots of their own "snakes" by stripping nude and running around at the top of the theater, only to be arrested RIGHT before Sam delivers his signature SOAP line of dialogue. Plenty of over-the-top gore, nudity and language. I won't spoil anything other than to say this is a film that needs to be seen, especially with a large, rowdy crowd.

    For all that it is and wanted to be: 9/10. And you can bet my ass will be seeing it again.

    The people in my theatre were yelling the entire time and just because this is a bad movie doesn't make that cool. So I left and got a comp ticket, i'll see it when the theatre isn't full of jackasses.

    I see what you mean. If I wanted to pay to hear dumb assholes spout their unfunny commentary I'd go pay for MTV. Even though it is a "bad" movie I want to be able to hear the rediculous dialogue....at least the first time. After that, bring it on. Sounds like it's already headed for ROCKY HORROR territory.

    This movie sucked. I didn't like it... I can see how people could dig its cheesiness and whatnot... but it sucked. Thats just what I think. And the closing credits thing... was just... dumb... everyone in the theatre was groaning or booing this entire flick...

    all i can say is that it was worth the wait, this film works both as a chessy b movie and a legit horror film.

    10:30 PM Friday showing
    Roughly 40 people in a 467 capacity theater

    OK, I anticipated this film for nearly a year and bought into the hype. I was also the only person in attendance decked out in rubber snakes. The moments leading up to the snakes being released had me on the edge of my seat, but once that load was blown I thought the movie really went downhill. At times this felt a lot like "Speed 2: Cruise Control" and the pacing was nearly as poor. No rowdy audience at this showing, contrary to many net reports from other theaters. I actually saw a number of people who fell asleep and were still asleep when the ending credits were rolling. I'm a big fan of camp movies, but this one bored me more than entertained me. I really did want to enjoy this movie. :( Maybe the absolute zero audience participation was a factor and maybe it just didn't click, but my initial reaction is I have no desire to watch this again.
