    Here's an old review of Piranha that really doesn't do the film justice: 31 Horror Movies in 31 Days Season 3 Episode 4 - Piranha (1978)

    So in case I wasn't clear enough in that review... I love Piranha. It's a terrific little low-budget film with some amazing talent blossoming behind the scenes.

    ★★★½

    Ridiculous in all the best ways. De Niro is totally sincere, and that's balanced with Travolta who is basically a cartoon from head to toe. They try to kill each other with top notch old man gusto.

    The movie that's running on the monitors in the waiting rooms for Hell.

    ★★★★½

    Superior in every conceivable way to the first Michael Keaton BATMAN, and anyone who doesn't think so is out of their goddamned mind. Not only is Keaton perfect again, but so are Danny DeVito, Michelle Pfeiffer and Christopher Walken. The scene where Bruce Wayne and Selena Kyle discover each other's alter egos still gives me a rush, and I can't tell you how many times I say "You've got kind of a dark side, don't ya?" to other people. Great dynamics and themes going on all over the place in this one.
