Anaconda ★★

Ice Cube plays a character whom is not Ice Cube but enjoys listening to the music of Ice Cube. That tells you just how serious Anaconda took itself. Normally that would be enough to fall in love with a movie, but awkward animatronics will always be more endearing than bad computer graphics, and while there are some adorable snake puppets to be found on this perilous river rapid adventure, it inevitably goes full bore 90's CGI which is significantly less fun, and eventually tedious.

King Cobra remains my go-to killer snake movie, even if it lacks a crazed Jon Voight and Ice Cube irrefutably shattering the fourth wall.
