Snakes on a Plane: The Recap

Via Flickr's Xaotica
All we can say is wow. Seattle's SoaP massive truly delivered last night. From the drinking, ticket scalping, yelling, car honking, draped (fake) snakes and overall liveliness in the crowd, last night's premiere was easily the best movie-going experience we've ever had, and fully lived up to our expectations, which were pretty lofty. Thanks again to everyone that came out and shared in the experience. We were truly part of something special. It might not change the world, but for 4+ hours (including wait time) almost a thousand people came together and shared a beautiful unifying experience. That's saying something. We even went to a showing tonight to see how it would stack up. It didn't. Thursday's Seattle premiere was truly a once in a lifetime event, and we're glad to be able to say we were there. To paraphrase the Goonies, "This was our time."

All of this isn't to say you shouldn't see it if you haven't. However, if you do so, do your part and drink plenty first (or during), drag some friends along, and yell at the screen. Also, go soon. It really must be experienced in a full theater. It's meant to be an entire experience, not just a movie.

Here are some other recaps for you:

Seattlest (they had a full posse in the audience)
Seattle P-I (definitely a reporter who "gets it")
Seattle Times (the crowd only gets mentioned in the last paragraph)
