Snakes on a Haiku

Seattle Times hosting Snakes on A Plane haiku contest, though RLW wonders how you construct a proper SOAP haiku without the word "motherfuckin'."

73% fresh at Rotten Tomatoes, but if you read carefully, a lot of these reviews are along the lines of "shit sandwich, but that's just what I was in the mood for."

Plus, I think -- seriously-- they're afraid to review it badly. Critics are always complaining that when they pan a film enjoyed by 14 year old boys, like the sub-trainable Star Wars sequels, they get hundreds of angry, abusive, even threatening emails. Some even feel the need to respond to these complaints in the next week's column.

One review says that people may be disappointed that it's not actually bad, which is, I have to say, sort of what I was hoping for. I like movies that are so bad they're actually great, like The Avengers, Batman & Robin, and the unbelievably, laugh-out-loud bad First Knight.
