Yesterday I bought a copy of Boa vs. Python because David Hewlett (Dr. Rodney McKay of Stargate: Atlantis) is in it and it was cheaper to buy it used than to rent it. I figure I can pass it along to some other ridiculous fangirl when I've seen it. (Any takers?) I haven't watched it yet, but here's the blurb:

"Two of nature's biggest and most terrifying scaled predators square off in an action-filled battle of fangs. When a gigantic python gets loose on a private reserve, the FBI must release an equally large boa to track and capture it as a group of wealthy big game hunters try to bag the python as a trophy for themselves."

In case it wasn't clear from that, it's a SciFi Pictures film. Hewlitt, naturally, plays a scientist, the herpetologist in charge of the boa. The boa is called Betty. I am not making this up. Fortunately, Jeff loves (I mean loves) bad movies, so he won't be cursing my name for watching this alongside me. He owes me a few anyway; I've suffered through so many wretched films because of him.

We're still debating whether we're going to make it out to see the Indiana Jones movie. I am deeply skeptical of the project and I don't really want to encourage Spielberg/Lucas/et al in their cynical opportunism. But I'm also curious enough that I'm thinking about giving them money, which only goes to show that cynical opportunism works.

We did go to see Iron Man (when we were in Madison, actually, with [livejournal.com profile] kinbote) and I loved it so much I want to go see it again. The Hulk movie just looks bad. I'm not sure what it would take to make a Hulk movie that works. Maybe a person as the Hulk instead of pixels? I really thought I would like the Ang Lee film but the script was just appalling. It looks like the reviews for this Hulk are better, but I think I'll still be watching it on tv in a year or two. Now, if it had David Hewlett in it . . .
