It was the sharks!! They ate the soundtrack...
They swim the atmosphere, endlessly seeking sound-waves to sustain them.
And when they find them, they strike! Silently, of course.
I watched Blast Vegas and it was just awful. Not fun, I can't believe that just happened awful. Just awful. I give it 1 sharknado.
I gave it about five minutes.
They had a tornado.
No sharks, though. I kept hoping sharks would pop out of the tornado. But I guess magical Egyptian curse tornadoes don't come with sharks.
You can always get the Blu-ray Disc(or DVD) that is being released on September 3rd.
Couldn't do it. My friend texted me Thursday night when it was on and I turned it on buy could only do five minutes. It's cool that so many people were into though. Like someone else said, I'm surprised this one got so much buzz when they've been doing these movies for years.
The part I saw was closer to the end so I was a little surprised at the airport hanger where the guy comes out and sees Tara Reid and is all "Mom?"... I just looked the two actors up and she's like seven years older than him. lol...
The other part I saw was Ian Ziering shooting flying sharks with a pistol - did anyone else think he must have gone to the same shooting school as everyone on The Walking Dead? lol
I liked it! Lots of movies try for "so bad it's good" and fail, but this one nailed it.
I watched the rest of it this morning. The second half was so bad. I laughed out loud like 5 times. The end with the great white, chainsaw and surprise contents of great white's stomach were too much. I also loved how a tiny gas grill canister and flare are a bomb that can stop a tornado.
I know campy, and this was not campy! Actually was bored, so I deleted it after about 30 minutes.
My favorite final touch was ending the movie with the word "FIN." I haven't seen that done since the old black and white European movies from the 1960s.
I've been wanting someone to do this for years. I'd watch it every single week.
Tempted to indulge but don't want to accelerate "Idiocracy"
By some metrics, Sharknado actually raises the average intelligence of human culture...
All I know is I've tried watching these dumb SyFy movies in the past. I have never lasted more than 20 minutes. I'm not exactly sure what it means that I watched all of Sharknado.
Was Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus the SyFy movie where the shark jumped out of the water and bit a 747 in midair? That's something only a 7 year old could dream up.
I realize asking this question is going to make it seem as if I think there was an actual story in this movie, which is giving more credit than I should, but anyway:
Was there any connection at all between the people on the boat (at the beginning) and anything that happened later when the action moved to L.A.?
I was listening to the "How did this get made" podcast. This was like the first thing they mentioned. That the opening segment had nothing to do with the rest of the movie.
That opening scene was pretty dumb. How this business suit dude is having a meeting on a fishing boat in the middle of the ocean. Then when they get in a gun fight, where the hell is the business suit dude going? Was he going to kill everyone on the boat and head back to shore with the money and shark fins?
Well I watched it, painful as it was. Like a moth to a flame I continue to burn myself on these atrocious movies.
Although at least there was a shark filled tornado so the name was correct. When I watched "Atomic Twister" I was fully ready for a Nuclear Cyclone of death but no, there was no Atomic Twister!! Frankly, I felt quite betrayed by that.
But Sharknado did indeed have a twister full of Sharks. So in the realm of "animals merged with weather" movies I give it the highest rankings.
I must admit I did laugh when the woman said "We're gonna need a bigger chopper..." (I'm sure Spielburg loved that one...)
Reminds me of Axe Cop, first a comic book and now a TV show, created and plotted by a comic book artist's 5-year-old brother.
I read that they have a budget of no more than 1 million for each these movies. And they do them very quickly on a very tight schedule.
And they have also never lost money on a movie they have made.
