Sharknado 2 : The Second One
I am one of those folks who watched the first movie more than once and just flat out loved it . I love bad science fiction B films..not the gore fest popular today and not horror films.
Freddy, Jason and Chuckie can go take a hike.
What I love are films that have humor.
Also known as anything with my boy Bruce.
Like badly edited martial arts movies.
" Dialogue, dialogue, scowl, angry face, more verbiage....".
Translation : " No ! " .
I fell in love with the first Sharknado because no on involved took it or themselves seriously. They weren't so self aware about it that it insulted the audience, it was more .." Hey ..this shits gonna be a hoot ..lets rock this ."
Much like " Bubba Hotep".
Sharknado 2, The Second One ..or just S2 was the same with the added bonus of many cameos. In the first 5 minutes you had Robert Hayes ( Airplane ) as the pilot...Kelly Osbourne as a flight attendant and The Wheatons ( Yes................both Wil and Anne - bonus ! ) get eaten by sharks. Sharks that were flying through the air in turbulence, hitting the plane..actually more like taking bites out of it..and so on.
The cameos were wonderful :
Wil and Anne Wheaton
Billy Rae Cyrus
Downtown Julie Brown
Her co - host whose name escapes me
The black business man from " Shark Tank "
It was wonderful !
SyFy will be running both again this weekend...look out for the bits where Nova in the first one actually explosion jumps in her escape before the actual truck ignites.
Happy Friday Eve
