October 2: Arachnophobia. Rating: 4/5. Comment: The star of the show, as usual, was John Goodman. I don’t have a huge fear of spiders (more like I have a healthy level of respect for my eight-legged, freeloading roommates), but this movie still made me jump. Imagine, if you will, that a deadly spider the size of an apricot drops onto the couch cushion beside you from above, and then runs off with the speed of a miniature Usain Bolt. If that doesn’t make you afraid, you likely have some sort of emotional disconnect and should probably go to the doctor. But not in Canaima.
Peace and love.
