I totally and utterly support this. If only because I think they're trolling.

Had Sharktopus on as background filler over the weekend. The acting in it was simply atrocious. There's more believable acting in pornos. Plus they had stormtrooper accuracy. A guy starts unloading on the sharktopus from like 10 feet away and never once hit it.

To suggest the franchise is in decline is to infer that it was once in ascent. It wasn't.

On the other hand, they just ordered a pilot based off of the relatively highbrow comic Pax Romana. If it takes a couple more Sharknados to make possible for new sci-fi shows to get made, I'm down with the intentional badness.

Because of this? That seems a bit overdramatic.

Subby knows there's an expression for the moment a popular series goes into decline, but he can't quite put his fin on it

"Jumping the Shark" wouldn't fit here as this "popular series" never had any quality, and has always been about a ridiculous premise in order to attract viewers. Others merely adopted the shark jump; Sharknado was born in it, molded by it.

Maybe "Throwing the Shark" for popular series that are devoid of quality but keep getting sequels.

That sucks.
Though I only caught a few minutes of it*, it looked alright.  And a couple of friends enjoy it.

*my series bandwidth is full; Fargo, GoT, Americans (second season has been solid) and Sleepy Hallow (least of the 4)

Sharknado is Terrible Great, because no one involved in the making of that movie gave one single fark.  Yup, Tara is coked out of her mind, just stick a boom handle in the small of her back to keep her upright. Sure, we're introducing the concept of Checkov's Helicopter, why wouldn't we? Of course Ian is going to jump into the shark head-first with a chainsaw to save his woman. Why are we even having this discussion, I have to go DJ at the Pink Lady in 15 minutes!

Sharknado 2 will be Terrible Great if they can tap back into that Not. One. Fark vein. It can be done, see The Expendables. But something tells me they're going to overdo it, and slide from Terrible Great to just Terrible.

shouldnt the chain saw have technically cut up his woman since he was going it with it running at high speed?  should have went straight into her no?

Too bad Ferret Fawcett Majors is dead and can't star in this. On the other hand, even her withered corpse would perform better than Tara Reid.

It's the Roger Corman business model. Because they are really cheap to make, they will keep making sequels until the profit margin makes it not worth it to continue. That's why there are 5 Carnosaur movies in existence.
 
2014-04-30 04:12:23 PM
as someone who loves hanging out with friends and watching some "so bad it's good movies" I really hate all the SyFy originals. The whole point of a b movie is someone making the best movie they possibly can as seriously as they can, failing at it, but still coming out with a fun movie to watch. To purposely make bad movies seems like cheating. Sure there are some funny parts but they've got no soul.

No. Ian is a master of "Husq-Fu", and is able to skillfully manipulate the blade to avoid WhatsHerFace.

Sharknado was perfect. No sequel needed.
However, I do believe that it's coming with a great toy. MUST HAVE

You may be overthinking this

"Sharknado" saw flying sharks attacking Los Angeles.  "Sharknado 2" saw flying sharks attacking
New York.  Where will the sharks land in "Sharknado 3"? ( Probably someplace like the center of
Wisconsin, for geographic reasons.)

That's a tad bit harsh, no? Just because subby isn't aware of an idiom, does not make him/her stupid. Uncultured yes but not stupid.

Okay, we'll settle for 'uncultured brute.'

I want Sharkcano.

Underwater volcano blasts sharks out of the water, so you get flying sharks ON FIRE. It's just the next logical step.

I sincerely doubt that the makers of other b-movies take their work that seriously. Sure, there were obvious outliers like Halloween and Jaws, but most were just an excuse for T and A, cloaked under the umbrella of a campfire ghost story.

They were about giving you a few laughs, giving the guys some eye candy, and giving the girls a few startles to get them to grab their date's arm.

Farkling is a term for someone who's Fark account is less than 1 year old.

I obviously wasn't on the set, but I disagree.  I think they *did* give a fark to make a bad-good movie.  And succeeded.  It takes a pretty smart person to think of a shark jumping out of the sky to eat a plane.  (Yes, I know this was a different movie- but I assume the same people behind the scenes).  Bad-good is an art form.

/Yes, I know I sound silly.
//Just love these movies

Due to budget cuts, Sharknado 3 will have to utilize a dachshund in a shark life vest for its protagonist.

Dear Baby Jesus, please let it be Washington, D.C.  The possibilities are unlimited.
