Big Game – Ridiculous Looking Movie

One of our favorite movie going experiences ever was Snakes on a Plane.
Not because there was any great cinematic anything in that film, but because it owned the fact that it was utterly ridiculous. Also, we were the only ones in the theatre (a group of us) and we got to interact with the movie more that way.

Well, it looks like Samuel L. Jackson, the BAMF himself, is doing it again. We saw the add for this movie – Big Game – and it just looks ridiculous. But in that great way. And they’ve figured out how the fun works, too – the movie is coming out in theatres, and on iTunes, the same day. Today.
