Sharknado 2: The Re-Sharkening!

Or whatever.

On in a few minutes on "SyFy"

Let the terribleness begin!

Okay.... the first movie was bad, sure.

But this movie? Just 15 minutes in and it's absolutely terrible.

Looks like it's called Sharknado 2: The Second One and they're making a third movie for 2015.

Yeah, I made-up my own sub-title as I didn't like theirs.

God, this movie....

Ah, Tara Reid drugged-up, uncertain and confused. This feels a bit more like it.

How is it Ian Ziering looks better at 50 than Tara Reid looks at 38?

Re: Sharknado 2: The Re-Sharkening!

Looks like it's given her a bit of a career resurgence.

I still haven't seen the first one. Now I'm curious.

Ehhhhhhhhhhhhh...... mayyybeeeeeeeeeeeee.


Anyway, this one is far, far worse than first one. Vastly worse.

And that's saying a lot since the first one is pretty damn bad.

The first one was pretty self-aware in what it was doing but the right amount of self-awareness that made it enjoyable.

This one is *very* self-aware, unfortuantely not the right kind of self-awareness to make it enjoyable as a bad movie because it's just trying way to damn hard.

Re: Sharknado 2: The Re-Sharkening!

The plot summary (more like a teaser summary) on Wikipedia is absolute gold:

A second 'Sharknado' strikes, this time in New York City.
Fin and his family are on a Boeing 747, flight 209, on the way to New York city. On the way, Fin sees sharks outside the plane. One lands on the plane wing and he begins to call out that something was on the wing, although when people look, they see nothing and quickly dismiss it, telling him to "calm down". He dismisses them as hallucinations. Then, the sharks attack. A shark crashes into an engine on the left wing and blows it up. As the plane flies through the storm, a shark flies into the passenger area and decapitates a steward. Another breaks through one of the windows of the cockpit, and eats the copilot's top half. The pilot tries to pull her back, but they are both dragged out. This leaves the plane without a pilot. Fin goes to pilot the plane, and April follows. She is swept out the door, and a police officer from earlier who had told to Fin to calm down, tries to save her, but is pushed to the wall by a serving cart. As he tries to drag her back in, he passes her a gun. She tries to shoot a shark, but it takes her hand. She enters shock. Fin lands the plane successfully.
The opening credits show as the sharknado song plays and sharksanity breaks loose.
Sharksanity.

The movie was more like a shark-lobotomy.

Re: Sharknado 2: The Re-Sharkening!

Honestly, this was just what I was in the mood for tonight. And they had me with the opening take-off on "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet":

Ohmigod, there's a shark on the wing of the plane!

I was just disappointed that so much of the flick was confined to the Times Square area. I really wanted to to see the Flatiron Building or the West Village get caught in a sharknado!

Re: Sharknado 2: The Re-Sharkening!

I recorded it to watch today (maybe), but I'll never understand the success of the original Sharknado. It was really no better or worse or more entertaining than most of these movies. What I want is more Sharktopus!

Well, theirs is a lot better than yours

The subtitle had me in stitches when I saw the poster, it is a deliberate attempt to put the least amount of effort into it possible.

You're in luck. Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda debuts Saturday night!

Just like everything else The Asylum does.

Re: Sharknado 2: The Re-Sharkening!

I saw Pyranahconda last week, which was so terrible that it was sort of fun.

These films are okay as entertainment, but I can't watch them too much as it just gets boring. Not fussed about Sharknado 2 really.

I'm 14 minutes into watching this and enjoying it immensely. So much so that I fear I may succumb to cheese poisoning. Or have a ham overdose. Either way, it's cool.
