Jackson's Snake Film Creates Huge Buzz

Samuel L. Jackson's new mile-high thriller Snakes On A Plane has created such a buzz among internet film fans, movie bosses have called for re-shoots - to give the film a tougher rating. The film, which stars Jackson as an FBI agent trying to keep a federal witness alive onboard a plane full of snakes, wrapped last September - but went back before the cameras earlier this month for five days of additional shooting. Film bosses at distributor New Line Cinema opted to add new scenes to the film to take the movie from PG-13 into R-rated territory, according to industry magazine The Hollywood Reporter. They claim the second round of filming became necessary after intense and growing fan interest in the film, which is scheduled to be released this summer. Among the reported additions to the film is a foul-mouthed rant from Jackson in which his agent character bellows, "I want these motherf**king snakes off the motherf**king plane!" The line is expected to take on cult status. The film-makers have reportedly added more gore, more deaths, more nudity and more snakes to the finished product.

The Internet is Serious Business, people. The film's producers probably found snakesonablog and thought 'WIN! Let's make it more cult so the internet geeks see it more than once! And have Samuel L. Jackson say "Motherfucker" a lot!'. Admittedly, I'm so swayed by all the buzz that I want to see it. Possibly on the first day, because it's about snakes. On a plane. There are no words to describe it in the English language!

Latin was terrible. Counting me, there were five people that came to class today, and by some cosmic miracle, I managed to get all the tough sentences and parsing. And don't even get me started on my translation for chapter ten (the first assessment piece). The parsing is right, but I didn't explain why
the cases/verb tenses were used clearly enough. *cringe* However, I am much more relaxed now and less panicky about it, since there are still two more homework assignments that I can do really well on.

Also, I somehow completely missed that Ronan Vibert was in Tristan and Isolde, and this shames me greatly. Oh, and Press Gang fans may be interested to know that Dexter Fletcher turns up as one of the English lords too.

Current Mood: relaxed relaxed

It sounds like a film to put alongside "Plan Nine From Outer Space". A cult classic, but the sort to appreciate ironically.

And while I think of it - I've picked up a fan in the UQ academic world, too. You've got Strelan reading you, I've got Elson reading me...

on a plane!

How in the hell can they work nudity into it? I dunno, mile-high club maybe, but once those snakes are loosed...

I can't even type it.

P.S. I haven't seen Ronan Vibert in anything in ages.
P.P.S. Dexter Fletcher is kind of hot-- but it's purely because of his hair.

Snakes on a plane!?!

I think I saw a trailer for it a while back, and I wound up watching my palms instead - too scary!

Oh, and if you ever get the chance, Check out "Hotel Babylon", Dexter Fletcher's great in it!
