Enough is enough!

I've had it with this motherf***n' hype
in the motherf***n' media!


Take a concept that’s purely inane,
Then hype it ‘til fans go insane;
And what should be a bomb
Will become a phenom.
Could the sequel be Sharks on a Train ?

'Snakes on a Plane' can't lose
Two stars out of four

Now there's a movie I don't plan to see.

Nor I, but it's interesting to read how the blogging community is being given credit for generating all the advance buzz on this idiocy.

I don't ever recall mentioning it or reading about it on other blogs. Do you? So who could these bloggers possibly be?

Isn't it all so odd. When I first heard the title and before the hype had penetrated my field, I skipped right over it. I thought it was a summer kids' movie that no one else would pay attention to.

Ronni, when I first heard the title, "Snakes on a Plane", I immediately thought of Dr. Seuss or Shel Silverstein. Sounds like something they would come up with, no?

Ahh, but what a wealth of sequels this could spawn:

Tarantulas on a Train
Baboons on a Bus
Crabs on a Cruiseliner...wait I think that one has been done...
