Piranha

Saturday, October 4, 2008

I shouldn't say too much here, as I was pretty wasted when I watched this and my memory is a little hazy. But I do remember enjoying this silly rip-off/parody of Jaws, especially the part where all the little kids get attacked by piranha. You don't see that shit every day. Also, I should note that I like Joe Dante, and even though this didn't seem like his best work, it was still fun. Also, Paul Bartel was in it and he's funny.

YOU DIDN'T MENTION THE DINOSAUR!

holy crap I keep forgetting about that. that shit was surreal.

There was a dinosaur in it?

yeah, like they go to a lab at one point, and in the background there's this weird, tiny stop-motion godzilla thing running around. and he keeps popping up in shots, peaking around corners and shit, during this scene. it came out of nowhere, we were both like "what the fuck?" I thought maybe the dinosaur was going to fight the piranha later, but he's never seen or mentioned again. so I guess it was just some sort of odd, Joe Dante style visual gag? or something? I don't know.

if by "or something" you mean "the best fucking part of the movie", then yes. you are correct.
