Went to the movies last nite and saw The Rite with Anthony Hopkins. The movie is about exorcism and the devil takes the form of a firebelly toad. Of course.....when the toad made its debut I leaned over to Tammy and said....."firebelly toad", like i knew my shit. LOL. It was a pretty good movie too. Wasn't real scary...Anthony Hopkins does a good job. Recommend it. Little slow in the beginning, but does pick up. Just thought I'd share.

Saw it as well. First movie with him in it i was unimpressed with. Sorry wick. I think he's a great actor but even he couldn't save the poor script and directing.

Nice...Bill. LOL. Eric.....it's ok that you didn't like it. We all have our views I thought it wasn't the best script too. That's because it was pg13. I have a problem when a movie has that rating, especially for the genre. I didn't mind the directing though. Isn't much out around this time of year though.

And don't forget, Sir Anthony don't read the script, the script reads him!

Just wanted to add that.

I havnt even heard of this film in the uk! I've never known froggies to be used in films that much, although I'm not too sure if its good or bad! I find certain animals used in films in negative roles get punished or people start wanting them who don't know how to care for them. For example nemo, Ninja turtles! I'm not sure if the US had them? Jaws, Harry potter ( people wanted the owls and thought they ate seeds etc) i don't know what I think about froggies now being used in films. What do you think?

Here's some worthless information.

Ameyzoo exotics, located in the UK just outside of London (not sure if they are still around), provides most of the exotic animals such as snakes, frogs for the harry potter movies.

I owned a few of the toads that made appearances in the movies, I didn't care that they were in the movies, since anyone could say " my toad is the one from the harry potter movie" They used dozens of toads for the filming, so it's hard to prove which exact toads were in the final cut.


I just can't find the words.

I sold the scorpions used in the next Hostel movie to Kieth up in MI. He was contacted and they were filming @ some abandoned wharehouse near by.. He made a metric sheeet ton of money to be there taking care of the insects. I think it comes out to about $200 a scorpion for him!

I sold them to him @ $3ea.. LoL
