    Just so we're clear:

    Anacondas may occasionally regurgitate their food, particularly if the ambient temperature is too low or they are sick.

    It is highly unlikely that there are anacondas even approaching 40 feet in length, but there are anecdotal reports of true giants (unmeasured, of course) over 100 feet in length.

    Anacondas are very heavy-bodied and rely on the water to support their weight. But they do require dry land at times, and a 40 foot anaconda might crush…

    I decided to follow up Eight Legged Freaks with another giant animals attack b-movie Ananconda. I saw both of these bad cgi cheese fests in the theater and had a blast with both of em. J-Lo, Ice Cube, Eric Stoltz,Kari Wuhrer (ironically the sheriff in E L F) & Jonathan Hyde are a documentary film crew in the rain forest who come across two large snakes one is a stranded man they let aboard played by an insanely overacting John Voight…

    Okay, I kinda like this one. It's far away from a clever film, but it's a simple and fairly solid action adventure flick with a decent cast that really know how to inhabit their one dimensional characters. Nobody seems to be under the illusion that their making a serious film, so they play it big and broad ... especially Jon Voight, who miraculously leaves some of the set intact. My one serious complaint is the CGI snake, which looks awful,…

    “Is it just me, or does the jungle make you really, really horny?”

    Luis Llosa’s Anaconda is a shitty film, but the pure entertaining kind of shitty films-. The Amazonas setting brings the perfect atmosphere to a film like this (helped by the awesome score) and throughout the film does build some pretty nice tension regarding Jon Voight’s character and his dubious motives.

    Unfortunately for a film titled Anaconda, much of that built-up tension disappears as soon as the snake…

    A movie called Anaconda, starring Jennifer Lopez. If you didn't know about it, you would reasonably expect a legendary prequel or extended version of sorts for the Nicki Minaj video. I already knew it wasn't going that route, and still believe this mediocre thriller would have benefited so much from the proper presence of Lopez in her prime, even fresh from Selena (1997), her only decent role to date. Sadly, and as hilarious as you may find the title situation,…

    Anaconda is one of those types of film, that while sloppily written, and while being comprised of elements that seem to have been thrown together carelessly, somehow still manages to achieve the impossible and be an almost-entirely enthralling ride.

    Why do I say almost-entirely? Well, because you do have to wait a little while before the film enters no-holds-barred thriller territory. The paper-thin characters have to be introduced, the mythos of the dreaded anaconda has to be introduced, and the…

    The most lethal snake known to man vs Ice Cube...

    money's on Cube

    This movie does have its flaws but I freakin' loved it as a kid and still do.
    You people have to consider the year the movie was made. Best snake movie for its time.
