Sharknado Is Here To Stay

I guess Tara Reid and Ian Ziering can count on steady paychecks for the next few years. Sharknado 2 set a ratings record for Syfy with almost 4 million viewers watching the first airing of the movie which was triple the amount of people that watched the first movie. During the airing of the movie, it also received 1 billion Twitter mentions which is an astronomical number. I actually have not got around to watching the second installment yet because it is something you have to prepare yourself for and can't just sit down when they tell you to watch it. you need a pitcher of adult beverages and need to prepare yourself for really bad acting and directing and sound and to convince yourself that you are not wasting a couple of hours of your life. So, pretty much like watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but with killer sharks and cameos from a bunch of people you have not thought of in years.

Turn watching it into a drinking game.

If those awful Piranha movies can continue to be made, you know there were be at least another three Sharknado disasters.

It is actually quite entertaining.

Its dumb script or bad acting (the best one is the African American anchor who apparently also tells the weather in American TV) is just what we were looking for.
It has some jokes that made me giggle (the former baseball player) or the homage to "army of darkness" and it's in all better than the first one (shocker). I even found Tara Reid cute, not "I will risk my life banging her and getting all STDs imaginable" but cute as in "if I wear an NBQ suit, I can speak to and even touch you".

It only pisses me off the chauvinism of the New Yorkers that is all over the movie (we are the best, the capital of the world...). That's probably because is paid by the city's gov, but still.

Tara Reid is now selling a perfume called Shark on her site for $25.

I thought it was so funny and had a great time watching it. Best ending to a B/C/D-movie EVER!

Steampunk Jazz said...

I love crappy movies that gives 80's stars a job! It's like the Academy Awards. It's all dish about plastique surgery and woowle reports, lololol

Eros said...

I don't get the appeal.... I know its more to make fun of really bad movies like this but...yeah I cant.

If im going to watch a movie I want it to be something good.

Frufra said...

Haven't watched either of them, but I guess they're this generation's Airplane, huh? I'm all for mindless fun - life is full of bullshit; if shark tornadoes make people happy, I'm all for it!

Not that it is always a bad thing but we are a nation of excess in all things- even campy shitty movies.

Now I wish for the original MST3000. Only way I would watch Sharknado.

Snapdragon said...

RiffTrax did a Sharknado riff in theaters. RiffTrax has got some of the original MST guys in it.

I hear Sharknado 2 passes the Bechdel Test, so it's got that going for it.

Tried the first. ..got 7 minutes. .value my time too much

discoflux said...

To be fair, I think about Downtown Julie Brown on a pretty regular basis.

auntliddy said...

I didnt even know it was on!!!! Never saw first one either!!

SusanB said...

We watched although we missed the first 15minutes. Mr B asked me who Tara Reid was...l told him (he doesn't follow gossip) he asked how she could be involved with Ian whatever since "isn't she around 60 years old?"

How dare you compare Sharnado to Airplane!

Unknown said...

Can't wait for the spin off 'OctoCain'

Erik said...

Nothing in Sharknado is as great as pretty much everthing in Airplane./

caydian said...

Should've been named 'Shartnado.'
