    I must politely and respectfully disagree. This cinematic treasure is truly the Citizen Kane of weather-related shark movies. Or at least the Magnificent Ambersons of meteorological Selachimorpha films.

    And Ian Zeiring's heroics at the end beg the question of why he has never ascended to the iconic action star status of Cruise, Willis, etc.

    Makes a superb double bill with Sharktopus.

    I dunno...I've always kinda sorta wanted to see Bait, an Australian movie about a bunch of kids trapped in a supermarket with a bunch of sharks by a tsunami.

    Which has the advantage of apparently being meant to be taken seriously, at least going by the trailers.

    I do have Sharknado on my TiVo, however. Still not sure if I want to watch it, but there was a hilarious segment about it on Nightline last night...and it wasn't even the closer fluff piece!

    I watched half on Thursday night and half on Friday night. That movie was hilarious. Especially after the last scene I was rolling on the floor. I could not stop laughing.

    They have a lot of these but I think Sharknado was really over the top. I've seen other ones SyFy has put out but I never laughed as hard with those other movies as did while watching Sharknado.

    And the only reason I even set my TiVo to record it was because they were talking about it on the radio. Saying something about it being so bad that it was good. And they were right. I have not laughed so hard during a movie in a long time.

    How about... Tsuzombie! A nuclear plant explosion causes a giant radioactive tidal wave that drowns thousands of people and then brings their bodies back to life!

    I'm sure the reason this got so much Twitter love and press coverage is because it was LA that was overrun by sharks....doesn't anybody get that?

    I had SO MUCH fun watching it on Friday night. Hilariously bad. Check the continuity error on the bridge scene.

    Pretty amazing helicopter piloting to go into a tornado and be stable.

    I loved the fact that if they shot a shark in the tornado it instantly dropped down like it was flying of it's own accord.

    I liked the fact that one guy winched all 20 something people out of the school bus onto the bridge with absolutely nobody else helping him.

    I didn't watch it, but it was weird how supposedly popular this became. (It was mentioned on the NBC Nightly News, which obviously is owned by the same company that owns SyFy..)

    But it actually apparently got bad ratings, especially compared to the viral nature of the talk about it.

    Maybe they can do a Bond/Shark crossover: Sharktopussy.

    Oh, wait. I think that's been done.

    I think it's popularity came as it was being aired and after the fact. SyFy will repeat it on Thursday. Maybe the ratings will be better the second time around.
