There’s a show on TV that I rather enjoy called River Monsters. Perhaps you’ve seen it. It’s sort of like one of those bass fishing shows on CMT or ESPN, except that the angler, Jeremy Wade’s, accent is decidedly British rather thasn Southern and he doesn’t spend the entire show in the boat with a six pack talkin’ ’bout how them fish is bitin’ today. Plus the things he’s going after put up a hell of a lot more fight than a large mouth bass. Anyway, what I really like about the show is that Wade is pulling some asininely large and hideous fish out of
the water every show. It’s not like MonsterQuest where they spend the entire hour jerking off with little or no results. Wade goes after something, he gets it.
The point I’m getting to in my own roundabout way is that River Monsters always delivers the goods. And that’s exactly what I’m hoping for from Piranha 3D, which is now up over at Yahoo! Movies. It’s got a fairly loaded cast in Elisabeth Shue, Ving Rhames, Steven R. McQueen, Dina Meyer, Kelly Brook (who will be naked in this or at least in a wet t-shirt if there is a God), Ricardo Chavira, Richard Dreyfuss, Jerry O’Connell, Christopher Lloyd and Eli Roth. Looks like it’s got all the necessary elements (and many of the necessary cliches). Piranha 3D premieres August 27th.
Thanks to Brian for the tip.
