ANACONDA (1997) ***

A documentary film crew goes down the Amazon River and pick up crazy old John Voight, who is obsessed with capturing a giant man-eating anaconda alive.  The snake (a combination of animatronics and CGI) can eat and puke out its prey.  Voight is wonderfully over the top with his scarred face and overblown Peruvian accent.  Eric Stoltz must have had a great agent cuz he spends most of the movie sleeping.  With Ice Cube (“I’m goin’ back to L.A.!”), a pre-star Owen Wilson, and Kari Wurher.  It’s nice to know there was a time in film history when a CGI snake was a bigger box office draw than J. Lo.
