Syfy also announced a Twitter contest to name the sequel. Fans will be able to tweet their subtitle to @SyfyMovies using #Sharknado. The network will select the best submission as the sequel's subtitle.

How can there be any question -- "Sharknado vs the Vampire Squid". Regardless of the rest of the movie, I would watch the hell out of a scene with at least a couple of minutes worth of giant sharks sweeping through a trading floor, while the investment bankers simultaneously bet on the outcomes and loot their dead coworkers' bodies.

That's just nitpicking, isn't it?

I was part of the epic thread that went on during the premiere of Sharknado. Now it's all mainstream.

I think the pitch sessions for these movies should be a series itself. Can you imagine the crazy shiat that doesn't get made?
 
2013-07-17 01:36:51 PM  
I can't wait to avoid this one as well.

I just wish they put as much thought into their movies as they do their shows.

They are actually getting more into sci-fi again, though. Continuum has been a decent time travel cop show, and some people are liling Defiance even though it isn't my cup of tea. They supposedly even have a Ringworld miniseries and a Childhood's End miniseries in production.

^This! Everything about it was done to perfection. About the only negative I can say is that the tempo slowed a bit toward the end, but hey.

Watched it after watching Sharknado. Thank god. Needed something to wash that Asylum crapfest out of my mind.

So would "Sharknado" qualify for "jumping the shark"?

so more medium shots of people driving around in a car against a burry background and cutaways to stock footage?

I really, really wanted him to be Badass in a Snake Pliskin or Ash style, not "stereotypical black gangster" style.  I also love bad movies, but FDR was just not good.  Sad, because it was awesome until he actually became president, then it just sucked.

My favorite was the editing job they did when 90210 was rescuing the kids that were trapped in the school bus. Supposedly the street was flooded and the bus was stuck in the rising water with sharks all around. He had to repel down from the overpass above to rescue them one by one. When they showed the shots of them setting up the gear so he could do this, the street below the overpass, with cars driving on it, appeared in the shots. I found that hilarious. I guess they didn't have money in the budget to shut down a street.

It's still better than SHARTNADO

But not as good as ShatNado.. a tornado of Shatners is full of win

Watched it with my boys and we all had a chuckle. I don't see what the big deal is or why it signals some downfall of western civilization.

Because continually marketing to the lowest common denominator is turning this generation into a bunch of morons. Making crap like Sharknado is the equivalent of putting Honey Boo Boo in the theaters and charging yokels to see it.

I just hope they include mitch's prediction in this movie: That is, he falls out of the chopper and has to surf the sharks through the sky as he falls

Not a repeat from every generation in the history of the world.

People like thoughtless fun every once in awhile. Doesn't mean Western Civilization is collapsing. Relax.

I get that, I really do. But at least the ridiculous movie lets my kids use their imagination. Honey Boo Boo certainly doesn't.

You should have heard the absurd story that they came up with a few days later that had a sharknado hitting summer slam and taking out half the WWE.

They should just ride off of MTV's coattails and set it in New Jersey. Sharknado 2, Jersey Shore.
 
2013-07-17 02:47:03 PM  
The climax of the movie will be when the sharks make it to Wall Street and the heroes, on thinking it over, just kind of hang back to see what happens.

No way, this totally the first time this has ever happened! And Sharknado is the end of the world, don't you see? People (not that many, but some) watched a stupid movie! Omgzors we're doomed and Idiocracy is totally coming true, except it isn't.

/I can't believe people can even survive the irony black hole being created by biatching about stupid mindless entertainment on...Fark...for gods sakes people that's like looking down on Honey Boo Boo because Jersey Shore is much more high class and meaningful

They should cast Henry Winkler, and get a shark to jump over him.

Lord Snoopy's G.P.E.H.: They should cast Henry Winkler, and get a shark to jump over him.


They must do that... although, considering his continuing work on A.D., one might think he is even too "big" of a star now to be in a Assylum film.

IIRC it was SyFy that did a miniseries of the Riverworld books 3 or 4 years ago and they took some WILD liberties with Farmer's source material.

The sequel should be set in Australia so the cyclone hurl a wide range of Australia's exciting marine life on the helpless masses - Box Jellyfish (read up on wiki), Sharks, Saltwater Crocodiles (chase people after landing), Stingrays (they could fly!), Blue Ringed Octopi (no-anti-venom exists, victims are paralyzed but fully conscious and aware of what is happening until their heart and lungs eventually fail), Stone Fish, Moray Eels...

This.  A million times, this.  If they still had their good shows on, that would be one thing, but they don't.  When Warehouse 13 shutters its doors, remember this moment.

I would watch this if they called it Sharknado 2: Electric Boogaloo and used the Breakin' 2 theme song.

In fact, throw in some breakdancers doing some sweet moves while sharks aren't raining from the sky and I might even buy the Blu-ray.
 
2013-07-17 07:15:16 PM  
I'm sorry, but all of you dissing on Sharknado are forgetting an important moment from the climax, which thoroughly justifies the movie's existence.

Hot Bartender and Hero's Son Who's a Pilot (HB and HSWP) are in a helicopter, throwing handheld propane-tank bombs at the sharknados to blow them up and thus save the day. They fail to blow up the last sharknado, and HB falls out of the helicopter, at which point she is eaten by a shark.

Minutes later, the Hero blows up the last sharknado, and all the sharks start falling out of the sky. One of them is about to land on the Hero's Daughter Who Had No Purpose in This Film Except to Complain and Be an Excuse for Tara Reid to Exist (HDWHNPTFECBETRE). The Hero shoves HDWHNPTFECBETRE out of the way, and dives right into the shark's gullet, chainsaw first. He then cuts his way out of the shark's stomach, dragging HB out with him. Because out of the thousands of sharks in the air at the time, the  one that was about to crush HDWHNPTFECBETRE is  also the shark that ate HB. A little CPR and she's right as rain.

And then, despite the fact that HB spent the entire movie trying to get into the Hero's pants, the Hero gets back with his ex-wife, Tara Reid, and HB hooks up with HSWP. And they're all covered in shark gore.

Oh, and earlier, the hero blew up a retirement home swimming pool.

WHAT ELSE DO YOU PEOPLE WANT FROM A MOVIE?

Well, least they got an area that can actually experience a hurricane (as was stated at the beginning of the first movie) this time... But do they have some kind of aversion to filming in an area that could actually get both hurricanes and/or tornadoes? I mean, is it so hard to take a little trip down towards Texas and film there?

I watched the first out of morbid curiosity as to what people thought was awesome about it the day after it aired. I couldn't turn my brain off with all the factual errors, continuity errors, and outright ludicrousness of it.
