I know this one has probably been shouted from rooftops since the theatrical release, but I didn’t see it til we rented it and watched it last night, so I’m going to babble about it now.
If you haven’t seen Snakes on a Plane, don’t worry, I’m not about to ruin anything for you. Well, I am about to reveal an Easter Egg, so if you’re looking to discover them all on your own, move along. Beyond that though, I don’t think I’m spoiling anything. If you’ve seen one trailer for this movie, you know it’s on a plane, and there are a bunch of snakes.
Ok, so during one of the crazy, super dark, snakes everywhere scenes, the mail flight attendant, Ken, finds a snake in the galley, well it finds him, and he manages to step on it, pick it up and toss it in a microwave. Sounds cool enough, right? Here’s the part I’m talking about, courtesy of YouTube. See if you can spot it, if not, read on.
Ok, if you watched the video clip, it happened at about 12 seconds in. Well, watching the DVD last night I thought I saw something hokey with the nuker, so I made Will rewind it and slow it down and sho’ nuff, they added a new feature to this nuker. Ken has a special “Snake button”. Click on this thumbnail to see it blown up, and made a little lighter, so it’s easier to read the button. But how cool is that? I mean, the whole movie is funny. It’s supposed to be, I think. But either way, it’s funny as hell. The only thing I didn’t like was that it took so long to hear “…M***** F***ING snakes on this M***** F***ING PLANE!” come out of Shaft’s mouth, I mean Mace Windu, I mean Sam…… oh whatever. You know what I mean. Ooops, I might have just spoiled something.
