I never liked Jaws. Not at all. Why do you think Jaws is somehow better?

Replies like this one is why I believe that the majority of people who didn't like the film simply didn't get it. It wasn't a horror. It isn't at all comparable to "The Descent" or "The Crazies". It wasn't trying to make you scared. It was trying to be a ridiculous B-movie. Those who compared it to Planet Terror were spot on.

Default Brains are different ...

"It was trying to be a ridiculous B-movie". Ok, but how can someone give 4,5 stars to a movie like this?. Itīs no fun, no scaring shots, just some naked woman, etc and etc. Why someone like something like Piranha? What there is that makes you like it?

It's called (a): Subjectivity
(b): Having a sense of humor

Oh and while we're at it: Ban request. You're tiresome already.

Humor, bringing back fond memories in homage to B-movie horrors of the past, and just general 'fun'. It's supposed to be a 'fun' movie. A ride. A party film that you and your buddies go to after having one too many. It succeeded admirably as that type of film. You're meant to be laughing at the sheer ridiculousness of it all.

I mean, really, no more than 2 minutes into the movie a toppled beer bottle causes an earthquake that opens up an underwater lake housing giant prehistoric hyper-aggressive piranhas. At which point did you think the filmmakers were hoping you'd take this shit seriously?

I don't rate movies on an egalitarian, definite scale. My 5 star rating of "The Shawshank Redemption" is completely incomparable to my 5 star rating of "The Big Lebowski", for example.

I'd give "Piranha" 4-stars because it did a commendable job of achieving what it set out to do; make a fun B-movie ride with just the right amount of cheesiness, humor, and homage.

Default The human brain ...

I think the only reason someone can like a movie like Piranha is the kind of brain the people owns, maybe a bad configuration. The movie is actually bad at all.

I just find it amusing that a post insulting other people's brains is itself littered with grammatical typos.

insert TNPM's explanation that that is the aftermath of ninja editing by the illuminati to discredit their enemies.
