Decisions, Decisions

Over at Bill Crider's Blog, Bill gives us the lowdown on the film that BBC News website readers said they most wanted to see at Cannes: a so-called " comedy horror film project" called Lesbian Vampire Killers.

Jim Winter commented that this was going to be the UK answer to Snakes on A Plane.

Now, faced with a decision between the two...which way do you jump? One has lesbians! And vampires! And killers! The other has snakes! On a muthafuckin' plane! (Oh, and Samuel L. Jackson).

Which would you choose? Discuss.

Hmm. Lesbian vampire killers or snakes on a plane. Naked women biting and making out with each other or a Freudian nighmare of phallic proportions.

This is a trick question, right?

I'd have to go with the lesbian vampire killers. I don't have anything against lesbians (pun intended) but I don't like vampires or killers. But above all, I don't like snakes. A friend lent me a movie recently called "Missing" with one of my favorite actors, Tommy Lee Jones, and recommended it. But it had snakes! I complained to him and he said that's what fast forward is for. But still, snakes? On planes? Bring on those lesbian vampire killers. Hmmmm. I wonder if all three of those factors are contained in the characters. Or are they lesbians who kill vampires? Now, I may have a problem. This IS a trick question.

I pick C.

Talk about a dilemma! So I'm seeing both. Assuming the one about the Lesbian Vampire Killers ever gets filmed.

There is nothing new or funny or even worth saying about lesbian vampire killers. Moving on.

There is nothing particularly interesting about snakes loose on a plane, at least not on a commercial jet, either. (Hint: look up the career of legendary Hollywood stunt pilot Frank Drake.) How active do you think reptiles are going to be at 35,000 feet? They're COLD BLOODED, people. Have you ever been toasty warm on a commercial flight? More like trying to get some sleep in a refrigerator.

Enough with the High Concept, Hollywood! Give me some story!!

James: You are thinking WAY too hard here, dude.

Snakes. On a plane. That is all you need to know.

I forgot.

We're Republicans and we're not supposed to think. Thanks for the reminder. That was close! It's the fault of the liberal media, for sure.

I think I'll go take a nap now.

"Snakes on a Plane" sounds like a documentary about Air Force One.

Anything with lesbians and vampires that's not on FauxTV is worth watching, if only because the mere thought of it probably gives Jerry Falwell acid reflux. If they can get both John McCain and Hilary to denounce it, they'll make a fortune.
