Sharknado (spoilers)

Quote:
What happens when tornados and sharks combine? TV movie magic! American Pie actress Tara Reid and Beverly Hills, 90210 star Ian Ziering star in the over-the-top new cable TV movie, Sharknado, that looks so bad, it just might be amazing!

In the Anthony C. Ferrante-directed film, a powerful storm drives all the sharks into the path of a deadly tornado that then makes them "rain down" over L.A. "The tornado is heading towards the airport," a frightened Reid, 37, says in the trailer. "We need to destroy it before it gets to it!"
I can't be the only person who Tivo'd this masterpiece on SyFy. I'll probably watch it on Saturday when I can fully appreciate its greatness. If it's anything like Sharktopus or Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus it'll be soooo bad it's bad, but fun.

I don't know about this, but as I was up all night due to thunderstorms in VA I watched a bit of the end of some SyFy movie about a two headed shark. It was bad. Very bad. And not in an enjoyable way either.

I watched it live. It was horrible and great all at the same time. It blew up on Twitter. Everyone was watching it and making fun of it MST3K style. It was like Rocky Horror Picture Show, the movie itself is bad, but the shared experience was awesome.

My wife and kiddo saw the ad for this and they both laughed and said, "That's just a fake movie ad right??!!".

I had to break the news to them that it was indeed real.

Syfy admits those movies are bad but fun. I should have watched it to see how they combine an animal with weather

Never heard or knew anything about this movie until I checked Twitter last night and saw the awesomeness of the Twiiterverse.
Now, I wish I watched it to join in on the fun.

Good think I DVRd it at 1 am. Amazingly there seem to be no reruns scheduled at this time.

Based on all the pub it's been getting I bet we get "Sharknado II: The Revenge" within a year. Or "Sharksquito"

Looks like SyFy is rerunning it next Thursday (7/18). I usually try to watch all of these, but missed out last night.

I suspect they can have it out in a couple of weeks.

I'm surprised people picked up specifically on this one, they have a new one of these every week I think. Sharktopus was one of my favorites.

We need a Fin action figure doll.

I knew this movie would be fun when I saw it was produced by The Asylum, the worldwide leader of the "mockbuster" movie. Here's a list of blockbuster movies they've made spoofs of:

Looks like they released Atlantic Rim straight to dvd before Pacific Rim came out.

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.

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.
