DVD of the Week – Snakes on a Plane (2006)
by RISHI AGRAWAL
You have snakes. You have a plane. You have Samuel L. Jackson. What more do you want?
Undoubtedly, being on the Internet, you have surely heard about this movie. It takes an absolutely ridiculous premise and follows through. Now, with the DVD, you can relive the movie over and over again. The DVD is available in fullscreen and widescreen modes (separately boxed) and features a commentary track by director David Ellis and Samuel L. Jackson. There also seem to be deleted scenes, a gag reel, and a bunch of short featurettes, including one titled “Snakes on a Blog,” which undoubtedly pays tribute to the power of the Internet. Without the Internet, this movie would have been a joke!
This DVD is probably worth a rental just to hear the famous line: “We have to get these motherfuckin’ snakes off this motherfuckin’ plane.” Now, you can stop the DVD, rewind a few seconds, and hear the line spoken again and again. I would say, if you play the scene more than four times, you’re probably a little deranged. But, go ahead, watch it again. We won’t tell anyone.
