By now, you’ve probably heard that both the mainstream press and the blogosphere have pretty much decided that “Snakes on a Plane” was a failure, simply because all of that buzz didn’t equate to a huge first weekend gross.

I’m going to withhold judgment, at least until I see how it does in the rest of its release windows.  What if people are just waiting until the admission price drops into the $3-$5 range, i.e., what it would cost to rent the DVD or see it on pay-per-view?

Perhaps we’d all do well to maintain a healthy respect for the time being.  After all, “Snakes” may still have some bite left.

    Well, I’ve wondered just how badly the movie would have done without all of that buzz.
