This is truly an epic episode of The Bacon on The Film Pigs Podcast. It took Todd nearly 20 minutes to conceive of this ultimate showdown. And the nice thing is, we recorded this episode in his office, where there was a multitude of DVDs to reference for accuracy. Which we did once, because we are lazy and don’t like to reach for things on high shelves.
Here are my vague memories of the big snake shows:
ANACONDA – I remember mostly that Jon Voight turned in the performance of his late career, a campy but high energy turn as an anaconda hunter with an unidentifiable accent who keeps calling this one chick “little bird” and then later is actually regurgitated by the giant snake. I remember the effects were pretty bad, but in a good way. I think Jennifer Lopez was on the boat with everyone, and one of those Ice guys was there, and maybe one of the Wilson brothers, and I’m pretty sure Eric Stoltz was napping the entire time. It was fun in the dumbest kind of way. No nudity, though, since it came during this, the age of the PG-13 exploitation film. Blah on that. But yay for giant snakes!
