Anaconda3: the reckoning

I was reading a crazy story about a german catfish that ate a pet dog. After saying WTF, and taking a second to process that information, I started to think about the maybe this was the plot basis for Anaconda 2. Yes, they made Anaconda 2.

Do you remember Anaconda (the original). That movie that was crap to begin with and had film heavyweights Ice Cube, and Jennifer Lopez as well as Eric Stoltz, Owen Wilson and Jon Voight. It was a very complex film: A "National Geographic" film crew is taken hostage by an insane hunter, who takes them along on his quest to capture the world's largest - and deadliest - snake. Oh and one last thing, the snake talked.

I looked up information about the sequel, and found out they already made an Anaconda 2. It was called King Cobra. So, this is really Anaconda 3. Three movies about giant snakes? That is roughly the equivalent of thinking up three ways to leave Macauley Culkin home alone. I imagine by 2010, the huge deadly snake will sneak onto a rocket and terrorize people in space or will be Lindsay Lohan's roomate in college.

Perhaps even more depressing is that this movie is getting hyped up like it is Nike's new disposable running shoe. Movies like Bubba Ho-tep come and go without so much as a blink of an eye, and steaming loaves like this film are served up to mass appeal. My only hope is that somehow we can get Ernest to go back to the Zoo, and have to wrestle the 'Conda for Verne's sausages.
