Has she even seen The Wire? Her interview with Ed Burns, the ex cop who created the show, makes it sound like she hasn't.

Seriously, this woman has a assistants who used to come into the video store where I worked to rent everything by "x" actor before her show. When Ice Cube was on, the Fresh Air account rented Anaconda for research.

the scene where the snake pukes up Jon Voight and he WINKS = the pinnacle of american cinema in the 90's

i don't hate terry, though i agree she can sound really clueless at times. i actually prefer it when she is out and dude does the interviewing. he's really good.

ANACONDAS: SECRET OF THE BLOOD ORCHID IS AS AWESOME IF NOT MORE. RANKS WITH GODFATHER PART TWO IN CANON OF JUST-AS-AWESOME-IF-NOT-MORE SEQUELS.

slockli when are they going to release stealth 2 son of stealth?

slocki, you may be right but i refused to see blood orchid because of the placing of a south american snake in an asian setting (I was way too into reptiles as a pre-teen). it should have been RETICULATED PYTHON: SECRET OF THE BLOOD ORCHID. but i will check it out soon, since your evaluations of movies generally dovetail with my own.
