Darn, I have plans to rearrange my sock drawer tonight so I’ll have to miss it.

Just remember, the movie doesn’t take itself seriously, so you shouldn’t either.

I find that self-conscious schlock tends to gratingly defeat its own purpose. I’d rather get my anti-aesthetic jollies re-watching “The Killer Shrews” or maybe one of Larry Buchanan’s grade-Z items from the 1960s.

What? This could well be the TV event of the year!

(Oooooo! Talk about damning with faint praise!)

I’m with you. This stuff is nothing more than “Look at me! See how clever I am? I can’t make a good movie so I’ll make a good BAD movie.”

It’s self-congratulatory failure, a further lowering of the bar, and a celebration of mediocrity.

“Stupid” isn’t the same as “funny.”

If you want to see appallingly — and legitimately — bad cinema, watch “Troll 2” or “Birdemic.” Beyond horrible ...

Hey, hey, Sharknado II has more truth in it than the entire history of MSNBC.

And, the sharks are much more attractive.

I was actually referring to people who are going to wail on this movie for “being so crappy”. The movie’s not meant to be serious, yet I just know people are going to tear into the story, the acting, the effects, etc.

Woohooo ! Can’t wait for tonight. I wonder if there will be a Sharknado 3 filmed in Washington D.C.

LOL! Indeed. Attack of the Killer Tomatoes was one of my favorites.

“Oh look, Martha! One of ‘em’s got little Timmy!”

And I really liked Sharknado. Looking forward to renting “2” from Netflix as soon as they offer it.

A good laugh is really healthful and keeps you happy!

Hope this will be the opposite of Jaws, where every sequel got worse and worse.

Oh, the anticipation is awesome. See Kelly Osborne give head (her head that is). And lots of other cameos look to make this a fun night. I hope RiffTrax (evolved MST3k) gets to do this one live too. RiffTrax Sharknado was killer- “Like Tara Reid has a bookshelf.”

I’ll watch just for the outside possibility of a DiBlasio or Schumer look-alike to get eaten by a shark.

And, of course, Sharknado: 2016 needs to be set in DC. . . imagine sharks, infesting Capitol Hill and the White House.

Well, I mean the ones with fins. . .

AWESOME.

Sharknado 2. Something more entertaining and realistic than listening to another Obama speech.

I imagine a sequel where the tornado goes over a sewer plant. You can probably guess the name . . .

Hubby went to see Sharknado in the movie theater when the MST3K "bots" were doing their thing. He enjoyed it. Mostly, he enjoyed the critiques of Tara Reid's acting ability, or, lack thereof.

Indeed. There’s a lot to read into a culture that resorts to deliberately making a tongue-in-cheek “schlock” movie to emulate a shared “bad movie event” experience. Not only does the contrived self-consciousness of the whole endeavor defeat the purpose, but it’s showing popular culture reaching a dead-end. Like a death wheeze.

This morning, I even saw some network morning news show happily touting this film, in the whole anticipation of the “event.” I know I probably sound like some grump who doesn’t want to join the fun party, but I really do find this sort of thing emblematic of cultural tiredness and decay. Which is paralleling the country’s social and political decay.

“Talent” and “Tara Reid” should never be mentioned in the same sentence. It makes “talent” look bad.

And I am, of course, just kidding. She’s a real beauty, and from what I’ve seen in her movies, she really
isn’t all that bad an actor.

I forgot the /sarc tag :) Her acting skills could use some work for sure. The easiness on the eyes makes it less noticable. She did play her role in The Big Lebowski pretty well, but it was a role very suited to her looks and demeanor.
