    Rifftrax Live, the best way to watch this film and Jon Voight's face. 2 1/2 stars for the film, 3 1/2 for Rifftrax.

    To quote a better reviewer than myself, "This film is quite poor."

    Thankfully tonight's screening came via Rifftrax Live, which more than made up for the film's awful, awful, awful quality.

    (Rating is for the film itself, the Rifftrax guys get a solid 4.5 from me)

    A perfectly serviceable dumb movie delivery system.

    Before the Sy Fy Channel became famous for their ridiculous, CGI-infested monster and killer animal movies, there was "Anaconda," a wonderfully campy and wildly entertaining B-movie that should have become the benchmark for the pay cable channel and their incompetent copycats.

    This brings together an eclectic cast headed by a spunky Jennifer Lopez long before she had the Hollywood cloud to turn down projects like this, and Jon Voight giving one of the most memorable performances of his career. The…

    I myself do not like snakes at all. Even seeing them on screen makes me squirm, but the supposedly terrifying snake in this movie was a joke. For the most part it was clearly a puppet that looked about the quality of a child’s dollar store toy and the rest of the time it was terrible CGI. There really is no excuse for the effects considering this film isn’t that old but even if you look past all that, the…

    The Horrors of October 2014: “Hoop-tober” Edition!

    Well, this is a B-Movie at it's finest. It's about a giant anaconda who kills Owen Wilson and Danny Trejo. I wish he got Jennifer Lopez on his list aswell. John Voight is the reason why you should watch this one. He is so over the top it's just awesome. I liked every scene with him in it. And well, that's about it. I'm glad it didn't run longer than 90 minutes or else it would've been too long.

    Just shut off your brain if you want to watch this one.

    A part of me really wanted to dislike this film. I was ready to open this review with a Nicki Minaj pun. But, it really wasn't that bad.

    I don't think anyone involved in "Anaconda" thought they were making anything more than a campy B-movie, and it shows. It's not smart in any way, but it doesn't pretend to be anything but a glorified slasher film. There are some nice set pieces, comedic beats that work quite well (Ice Cube's…

    Luis Llosa's horror/adventure, "Anaconda," is a South American-set thriller that suffers from too many issues to be truly enjoyable. The film does enjoy love from many horror fans, but those patient audience members are able to look past the dodgy performances, hokey creature effects, and personality-free direction. Though "Anaconda" is definitely watchable, it is very limited.

    "Anaconda" boasts a comfortably standard set-up. A group of disparate individuals finds themselves in harm's way when they cross paths with natures fury. In…

    I entered this movie with the expectation that it would be awful, and maybe having the bar set so low was why I actually ended up enjoying it, but I did. It is totally ridiculous but it was highly entertaining, maybe not for the reasons it intended but it is.

    The snake is ridiculous. And not just because it's animated with mid-90s technology. It defies physics and does those stupid reptile screams (courtesy of Frank Welker!) you only hear in the worst creature features. As if a forty-foot long snake that practically flies isn't scary enough. Worse, no one seems to call attention to the fact that it's fucking supernatural, like it's assumed all constrictor snakes in the Amazon are this badass. Sure, Jon Voight, who is channeling Robert Shaw…
