This giant-man-eating-snake-in-the-jungle thriller definitely scores points as a guilty pleasure, especially with Jon Voight hamming it up as the monster-poacher. He makes life miserable for a team of documentary filmmakers on the Amazon river. Anaconda is one of those movies that exists for no other reason than to give computer animators a chance to strut their stuff with a new digital beastie, and they don’t disappoint. It’s a lot of fun to watch the mega-snake scarf down its victims and—in the case of Voight—regurgitate ‘em right back up again, all covered in gooey digestive juices. You might wonder why Eric Stoltz, who plays Dr. Steven Cale, showed up for a role that requires him to be off-screen for most of the movie, but hey—when it comes to big snake movies, you might as well put your brain on hold and sit back for the slimy ride. —Jeff Shannon
