Beach ball

The annual movie.

I'm not a fan of movies. I consider them to be a complete ripoff, I don't really like going to the theatre, and I tend to lose concentration. I'd prefer a book or music. So today, I saw the only movie I intend to see this year (I think the last movie I saw was in June 2005). To what movie did I choose to give this honour? Why, given my sense of humour, the answer should be obvious!

Snakes On A Plane.

Let me just say that it is one of the most ridiculous and stupid movies I have ever seen in my life, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a cheap laugh, and I still can't believe such a movie was even made. It reminds me of a conversation I could've had back in high school: "Haha, you know what would be a REALLY stupid idea for a movie? Someone tries to kill a guy by releasing a snake on a plane!" "Just one? How could you guarantee it would get the guy?" "Oh, well, a whole load of them!" "Hahaha, that'd be a stupid idea, you couldn't make a whole movie out of that. I'd laugh if someone actually made it!"

The fact this movie was made just cracks me up. I hope there's a sequel, Spiders On A Train.
