I went to a midnight showing of Snakes on a Plane the Friday night it came out at a theater with a bar.  It was a ton of fun.  I could see Sharknado being the same.

I also blame the internet.

Not for this, just on principal.

Variety has their own hip language that's really obnoxious.

Likewise. Myself and a few friends killed a bottle of Jose Cuervo Black w/Coke and hit up a midnight showing of Snakes On A Plane with some like minded peeps. Good times. I can definitely see Sharknado being a similar experience

You mean you couldn't care less or do you care somewhat and it's possible for you to care less?

You read the article?

Well, there's your problem.

Actually, it's probably that you're just not young and hip anymore.  I've experienced this same feeling time and again over the last few years.

I'm well on the way to being an old codger and you probably are too.  It's our fate.

Kids today don't even make sense half the time and the other half they're just idiots.  And by "kids" I mean everyone who hasn't been alive for at least 3 decades.

Um, Variety has been using this style for over a hundred years.  Unless you're the world's oldest Farker, I'm pretty sure this isn't an age issue.

Linguo, DEAD?!
 
2013-07-27 02:44:48 PM  
That's odd. I didn't see a single phrase in that article that looked like "hosted by the Rifftrax crew", "free unlimited mixed drinks for all attendees", or "the film will be projected onto a lineup of fully naked Victoria's Secret models who will engage in a wild lesbian orgy for the entire runtime". What's the draw?

Stop enjoying what I cannot!

Movies are serious business.

Same here. We counted down that timer when the snakes came out, cheered at every death. It was a party that was well worth the price of admission.

You might have to dig around for a while, because that's been part of ham radio jargon for ages.

(And by "dig around" I mean in a cemetery, because the person you seek is likely to have been dead for several decades.)

Kids don't write that bullshiat jargon. People in general who want to be elitists do , It's in almost every industry.

So we have one week to organize worldwide Farknado parties.

That was an epic thread in its first run, I was honored to be a part. But none of us knew it would be a cult thing. And now SyFy is going to run it into the ground.

I worked that night.

Am I not allowed to find enjoyment in the b movie you are finished with?

Movies like this are the reason why TLC still exists.

Wow....so brave of you..... can you make a comment about Ow My Balls next?

I didn't say it was "brave" or even original.  But, at the rate the dumbing down of movie/TV entertainment is going, we're going to be at "Ow My Balls" well before 500 years from now.

the time of quality art is at an end, society is dooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooomed.

Nothing has changed, and if you want a superior story, go write one - and no excuses about budget, because if you want to take a high-brow stance not only should no expense be spared for your art, but very little should be required.  You don't need special effects to write a deep story.

Horrible B-movies have been around since the dawn of film, and they've been watched for the same reasons we watch them today.

You don't need special effects for reality TV, either.  TV programming used to mean something back in the day.  Now, the big 4 are flailing around, cancelling any show that isn't the next American Idol or House, and cable TV has been reduced to lineups a la TLC, USA, Spike, E!, etc.  SyFy and its B-rated garbage is just an extension of that.
