You're kidding. Right?

Last summer I went out to my covered parking area to my car.
On the windshield was a notification announcing that a movie was going to be shot along that part of the alley, and would I kindly NOT park my car there between certain hours over a two day period.
As I was about to get in my car, a young man came rushing over to me.
"This is your car? Did you see the note?" He queried.
"Yes, I was just looking at it. What's the movie about?"
"Oh, some terrorists. Samuel L. Jackson has to fight some terrorists that release some poisonous snakes on a plane."
"Are you serious? And they're going to call it 'Snakes on a Plane' right?" I laughed out loud at the thought.
"Uh, well, there's a working title of 'Pacific Air 121' at the moment. But it could change." He replied earnestly.

Alas, I see they've taken my suggestion seriously.
Really! "Snakes on a Plane."
That's what they've decided on.
I hope you can you see me rolling my eyes.


(I get the feeling others disapprove as well!)

I don't know...if this thing is as "in-your-face" as the title is, we may just see a b-movie classic when (cue music) "Snakes on a Plane" (end music) opens everywhere August 18th.

So they have overdone everything "scary" to the point where they have to combine things; snakes, planes, and terrorists...It started with making dangerous animal huge, the alligator wasn't bad enough, they had to make it 40 ft. long and put it in the sewers of New York...I can't wait for the movie "Monster Meth Addicted Great White Sharks take over Nuclear Power Plants"...

Tai said...

Meth Addicted Sharks...LOL!

No_Newz said...

Holy shit that is funny! Good call Tai. Thanks for the visit. I'm pretty sure what they call those red-throated hummingbirds.
Sounds like you have a great mom.

Or the much anticipated sequel, "Monster Meth Addicted Great White Sharks take over Nuclear Power Plants II: The Zombie Lovechild of Monster Meth Addicted Great White Shark and Zombie Flesh-Eating Ghost Lion Takes Manhatten."

Starring Mario Van Peebles.

And Charo.

It's a musical.

*runs screaming*

Phil said...

HA HA! They filmed that near you? How cool! Do you live at an airport?

Zambo said...

Hey Tai.

So...I looked it up...Not because I doubted you...but as your title indicates, it seems wrong somehow... ”Snakes on a Plane”: coming soon...(maybe straight to DVD)...

I hope you weren't inconvenienced too badly for this epic...

Take care out there!

Your Pal,

Zambo.

I might disagree too :)

Liz said...

LMAO! Good thing your car won't be associated with it.

CrackerLilo said...

OMG, you're serious!!!

I think you need some kind of payment. Honestly.

I love truth in advertising, don't y'all?

Spider Girl said...

Geez, Tai, you gotta what what you suggest to those Hollywood types...obviously you've got even more pull than I realized. :)

Buffy said...

Huh?!?%?£$?

debbiecakes said...

That just cracked my ass up, especially the poorly put together movie poster. I could practically hear Samuel L. Jackson's distinctive voice yelling, "We got muthafuckin' snakes!"

Keep 'em coming, sister.

debbiecakes said...

Holy ravioli, it is true! Well, the good news is they still don't have a thumbnail movie poster on that sight, yet. You could offer them yours- wait, on second thought you better copyright it and sue them when they steal that idea, too.

K. said...

Ok, I really thought this post was a joke but I looked it up and it is real!

Wow.

You should be getting paid for your idea.

Ian Lidster said...

And, they keep telling us culture is dead. You, Tai, have proved them wrong. It will have to prove itself, however, before it sits in the lexicon with such classics as 'Attack of the Killer Tomatoes.'

Pol* said...

....sigh....(rubbing temples in mental fatigue)... what has HollywoodNorth done now?

Grant said...

Actually, I kind of like it. It reminds me of the commercial about the dumbest movie ever made which they called "Blowed Up." But Snakes on a Plane is better. Still not Giant Atomic Chickens, but better.

The Miner said...

Was that a jock?!

blackcrag said...

OK, I seriously thought you were joking--obviously not.

Yet another sign the Apocalypse is coming...

Ms.L said...

Bwaaahaahaahaahaa!!

Tim Rice said...

That's funny!

Ruben said...

So you have to part with your parking space over some crappy movie?

angel, jr. said...

I can't believe this movie made it beyond the chopping board. It's going to be as ridiculous as that movie "Deep Blue Sea".

divine oasis said...

u moved them with your suggestion. even when we're being funny, we can still touch someone's mind. i can dig it.

fjl said...

Funny one. They'll stop at nothing to sell. It occasionally still drives me up the wall! x

javajazz said...

k, that's really funny...
and here i thought they had already run out of ideas for movies years ago...
tho, in nosing around even further on the IMDb site, i saw in the comments section below, a phrase that might perhaps have inspired a future sequel,
Snacks On A Plane...
i hope you didnt give up your parking spot.

:P fuzzbox said...

Title seems a bit tame, maybe they can take a page out of his Pulp Fiction role and call it, 'Bad Muthafuckin' Snakes On A Plane.'

nicki said...

WTF!??!?!?! hahahaha oh boy.

THEE EXPOSER said...

TEE HEE!

David Amulet said...

I thought this was a joke, but I just saw something else about it. I hope it flops.

ProfessorGQ said...

I am so not going to watch this movie anyways...

Carly-Ann said...

I totally thought that whole thing was a joke. Beginning to end. As a human, it's a little embarrassing. And I do NOT want to see box office results for this. I will be ashamed of our race if any one person sees it. And to top it all off, it was filmed here???

Outdoorsy Girl said...

I think they should credit you with the movie title!

I don't think I'll be going to see this movie because of the snakes. But it'd be interesting to be you going to see your parking area in a movie.

lol !!!! i luv it!
