If you haven't seen Sharknado 1, go and see the Rifftrax version of it. It replays in theaters next week, and it's worth every penny.
I had planned to go last night, but our patching took longer than expected and I didn't get off work in time. I was wondering if it was worth going to the replay next week.

Thanks for the good words. I'm encouraged. Now to see if I can make THAT showtime...

But 15 minutes in, I turned off the dreck.

I mean, every channel had it on, multiple times, it was the talk of the town everywhere I went... and yet, I couldn't find anyone who liked it. Just lots of talk.

Edit: It feels like one year-long April Fool's joke, to be honest. And really, I do like dreck - it seems a lot of movies people hate, I end up liking. I've generated an interpretation of movie ratings - 2-3 stars is a show I'd really like, 1 is dreck, 4-5 are too heavy for entertainment.
Worf, the reason there a sequel is because it made money. There were midnight showing on the big screen in the US and Canada. All sold out. I think read that it made for around 200,000 and made back 15-20 million.

You may have already seen it, but the trailer is out. Looks like it will be worse (better?) than the first one.

I had a cocktail at the local hipster bar called a Sharknado. It was very good... a more complex Zombie (which they also do, also good). Now I want to see the movie, but first I have to buy ten kinds of rum and these drinking vessels.

You know, I had seen Sharknado when it was originally on, but I swear, I must have slept for a half hour or more. I saw the Rifftrax Live encore, and don't remember

[spoiler]the girl falling out of the copter and into the shark's mouth[/quote]

That made the climax even more absurd.

Jason Priestly was great...

I can't believe I'm all set to record the sequel to possibly the worst movie I've ever sat through, but there it is. It's done. What the hell is wrong with me?

I'm recording the sequel and watching it live! I even bought a script used in production, will receive the blu ray, have a shark named after me and will get a special shout out on social media.

Some folks want to have a Sharknado 2 watch party. I haven't seen the first one. Actually, I'm not sure anyone has, except the host. Do we need to see them both, in order?

Probably not. You'll get the gist.

Also I'm not sure if this is a spoiler thread or not, so...

Spoiler:
Holy cameo fest... In the first few minutes we get Wil Wheaton and Robert Hays (spoofing Airplane)!

Wonder what the celebrity cameo death count will be at the end.

They must have gotten a larger budget. The production value is much better than the first one. The CGI is better and it's actually cloudy or raining whereas the first movie it was sunny most of the time during a major storm.

I keep cracking up every time they show The Weather Channel.

I hope they post a lost of all the cameos in this as I've lost count and some slipped past me.

But Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan are on ABC in NYC, so it wasn't all NBC all the time.

I missed watching the entire thing as I was barley looking at the screen only to live tweet "Riff Trax" style comments. I did DVR it and I will get it on Blu Ray so I will go back to catch all the cameos and references. I am trying to convince the production company via twitter to give me two free tickets to the in theater event for not delivering on my "Name a Shark" via Indiegogo before the TV premiere.

I think I liked Sharknado Classic more than this one.

I'm still trying to understand the weather lady's statement that the sharks were coming down at a rate of two inches per hour.

This running commentary helped me identify the guest appearances that I missed:

The "How To Survive a Sharknado" book actually exists:

Let's say the average shark is 2' when measured from bottom of belly to top of back. If it's raining sharks at the rate of 2" per hour, then that means after 6 hours the ground would be half-covered in sharks and after 12 hours there would be a blanket of sharks completely covering the ground. Maybe?

I did as well, but that may have been partially because I saw the riffed version of the first one.

Regardless, I think the endless series of cameos and LOOOOOONG segments from the Today Show and The Weather Channel (yay corporate synergy!) got very old very fast.

Early ratings indicate Sharknado 2 drew 3.9 million viewers, compared with only 1.4 million for Sharknado 1. Even so, repeats of "The Middle" had more viewers.
