I finally saw Piranha 3D. And I am a better man for it.March 24th, 2011 by Price
There are some movies that suck. There are some movies that are good and you’ll always watch if they happen to come on TV (Terminator 2). There are some movies you say are amazing, but won’t even spend the time/energy to watch again (Memento).
Then, you have those movies that make you lose your shit immediately after watching, calling/texting/sexting/tweeting at all your friends, telling them “YOU MUST SEE THIS NOW.” This is EXACTLY how I felt after watching Piranha 3D.
DISCLAIMER: I didn’t actually see it in 3D. DISCLAIMER: It doesn’t matter at all. Much like watching Jason 3D, you figure out which parts were meant for 3D, and it kinda makes it funnier.
This post should be titled “we” saw Piranha 3D actually. Vincent saw it too, equally loving the cornucopia of gore and cleavage.
I seriously died (funny!) laughing so often throughout this movie. It starts off normal enough, and then shit just hits the fan. I really don’t want to get into details, but let’s just say it’s nonstop once it starts.
Jerry O’Connell is absolutely hysterical. I’ve liked him in the past, but he really pulls one on this time. This movie is omniscient, since you could substitute Charlie Sheen for his character and not tell the difference. Ving Rhames is Ving Rhames, just a ridiculous badass. Everyone plays their part spot-on.
And the ending … oh the ending.
A meta point from all of this is that making this movie looked REALLY fun. I mean, literally PARTY PARTY PARTY BLOOD PARTY PARTY BLOOD BLOOD DONE. I love that recipe.
