This is Epth Nation

Epth is a state of mind, not a place. Reading this will give you a virtual drivers license in that state, but you'll still need to be 21 to purchase alcohol. And you can't get any there anyway, so stop asking.

Snakes on a Plane

This from

Samuel L. Jackson's new mile-high thriller Snakes On A Plane has created such a buzz among internet film fans, movie bosses have called for re-shoots - to give the film a tougher rating. The film, which stars Jackson as an FBI agent trying to keep a federal witness alive onboard a plane full of snakes, wrapped last September - but went back before the cameras earlier this month for five days of additional shooting. Film bosses at distributor New Line Cinema opted to add new scenes to the film to take the movie from PG-13 into R-rated territory, according to industry magazine The Hollywood Reporter. They claim the second round of filming became necessary after intense and growing fan interest in the film, which is scheduled to be released this summer. Among the reported additions to the film is a foul-mouthed rant from Jackson in which his agent character bellows, "I want these motherf***ing snakes off the motherf***ing plane!" The line is expected to take on cult status. The film-makers have reportedly added more gore, more deaths, more nudity and more snakes to the finished product.

I am the internet, and thus have heard a lot about this movie. Up until I saw the IMDB article, I thought it was all a big joke. But it's supposed to come out in August, and it's doubtful the internet buzz will continue through summer. Maybe they'll come out with some cool trailers or something.

I'm almost positive the movie will suck (one of the dudes who wrote it wrote Gothika, for pete's sake), but it will make a ton of money no matter what. According to the IMDB trivia page for Snakes on a Plane, Samuel L. Jackson only signed on because of the title, which is awesome.
