I have never been an actor, but I imagine working on a SyFy film is awesome.

I'd like to have been a fly on the wall during THAT brainstorm session.

Bossman: Ok folks...we need to put out a new movie for July. Ideas?

Nick: How about a good old fashion natural disaster movie? You know...tornadoes...or...

Sheila: Ooh! Not just tornadoes, but SUPER tornadoes! And not in America's breadbasket, but
somewhere unexpected, like Vegas or Los Angeles...

Bridget: I don't know...I kind of like the idea of some kind of animal disaster. Killer locusts, rabid
pigeons, that sort of thing. Or how about a West Coast Jaws kind of thing?

Nick & Sheila: I like tornadoes better.

Bridget: But...SHARKS!

N & S: Tornadoes!

Bridget: Sharks!

Melvin the copy guy: (muttering) Sharknado

N & S & B: Shut UP Melvin!

Bossman: Whatsyername, son?

Melvin: Uh...Melvin, sir.

Bossman: Right. Melvin - did I hear you right? Did you say...SHARKnado?

Melvin: Uh...yessir. Like these super tornadoes form out over the Pacific, picking up hundreds of
man-eating, pissed off sharks as the tornadoes move toward land. Then once they hit land, sharks
start getting flung out of the twisters...

N & S & B: Sharknado? How stu...

Bossman: Sharknado...I like it! You're a GOTdamn genius, Mark!

Melvin: Uh...I'm Melvin, sir...

YES.

SyFy has spawned a golden age of so-idiotic-they're-awesome creature flicks. Seriously...this sh*t is great and I have legitimate respect for the people cranking these out. Getting Tara Reid in it was a stroke of farking genius.

Clearly most of you don't understand the very real science behind this.

First, the near-surface sharks heat up and evaporate, ascending into the atmosphere. During a mesocyclone event, the "dorsal fin downdraft" -- hereafter DFD -- focuses the rotating shark-filled cloud base into an increasingly smaller area. Low pressure is created from this DFD, which pulls the condensation down and funnels it into a visible sharknado (Brody & Quint, 1975). When the inflow of warm, moist sharks is fully cut off by the DFD, the sharknado then dissipates, the remaining creatures falling to earth as a quite literal "rain of terror".

SirTanon: Mikey1969: Really? These people can't just step aside and let the stupid shark suffocate? Good lord people, find a basement and wait 10 minutes, How the Fark can even SciFi think this would make a movie that was anything but garbage?

Your argument is invalid


RE: Sharktopus... saw that this week.  Farking awesome.  Some of the best "good bad" I've seen in awhile.

zomega: Mikey1969: EdgeRunner: but it also sounds a lot less stupid than Twister was

Um, no... Flying sharks that can kill you after getting sucked up out of the ocean in what ISN'T tornado country, and then staying alive the whole time in the air, with no water, and still able to be dangerous when they magically land on you?

Well, if it was more waterspout than tornado....Okay, I need to stop trying to bring some logic to this very stupid idea.


Indeed, for "logic" and "SyFy Original movies" are fundamentally incompatible with each other.

oldfarthenry: Another turd-de-force from the cinematic buttocks of SyFy? Was this gem filmed in southern Ontario like the others?


I'm convinced that the development team, the target audience, or both for these films are stoners.

Sybarite: I think animal + natural disaster will be the next big thing. I have an idea about a New England coastal town terrorized by giant crabs brought up from the ocean floor by a series of freak tremors in the Atlantic basin. I'd call it...Crab Quakes.

Hah hah hah! and then the crabs are fought off by a brave but stupid lobster fisherman and his friends the paraplegic cop, the pervert, and the black dude.

Can't watch the trailer - all I get is a message telling me 'this content is currently unavailable'.  I think maybe it can only be viewed by people in the US.

It'd be nice if someone could figure out how to download it, and put it on Youtube.  So that, you know, the rest of us could see it.
