The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Plus the animated Napoleon Dinosaur

Snakes on a Plane is almost certain to be a hit — if everyone who mentioned it on a blog bought one ticket, the first weekend's gross would be well over a hundred bucks — which got me to thinking about possible rip-off films to follow.

Fortunately, Fametracker beat me to it, and you can expect some combinations or variations of these to show up, if not necessarily at the multiplex, certainly on the rental shelf at Lackluster Video:

  • Boa Constrictor in a Bus Station
  • Tarantulas on a Ferris Wheel
  • Hyena in an Elevator
  • Stingrays in the Toilet Bowl
  • Wolverines at a Church Bake Sale
  • Velociraptors at the Prom
  • Piranhas at the Y
  • Wolf on the Staten Island Ferry
  • Scorpions in a Starbucks

And they say Hollywood is out of ideas.

And they say Hollywood is out of ideas.

Hollywood has not run out of ideas. On the contrary, they have plenty of ideas. I think what "they" were trying to say was: Hollywood has run out of good* ideas.

*feel free to exchange the word "good" for: great, worthwhile, interesting, or funny.

No, Chaz, I think you had it right the first time.

I can't decide if I'm more "excited" to see the movie CHiPs or the movie Miami Vice.
Golly gee.
