Whenever you see a Shark
You know she's always proud
to wear the colors purple & white
& shout them out real loud...RAWR!"
(my school mascot was a shark as you can see from the one on my skirt)
“Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, run away from the Sharknado"
What the hell was that? I am still glowing from the post visual satisfaction of the spectacle perpertuated by SyFy. In fact if I worked there I'd be skipping thru the halls with my pants off, throwing fistfulls of glitter shouting "YIPEE! YIPEE!"
I love this musical tribute because of the gleam in his eye. It is infectious and really captures the joy of the Sharknado experience.
How can a movie so full of ridiculous plot points...killing a shark by stabbing it in the head with a pool cue while wearing a bikini...be so engrossing? Wait, did I just answer my own question? What of the spectacle of a bunch of people driving eratically in an SUV on dry roads DURING A HURRICANE HELLO? being attacked by a shark that bites its way thru the roof? Thank goodness someone had a bat and a pistol. Important tools for drivers who anticipate a shark attack 5 miles from the nearest ocean. Also naming your main character FIN... I c a n ' t e
t y p e I am bent over l A u g h i n g jus t t h in king about it all.
NOTHING in Sharknado made any sense. Sharks chew so being swallowed whole while carrying a chainsaw is highly unlikely but I appreciate the reverse Tauntaun and only a real man can perform his own cesarean section so um yeah thumbs up, dude. Also you can't fly a helicopter into a tornado and throw a bomb to make it stop twirling unless you're a cartoon and even then...oh f*ck it. Can we talk about the ferris wheel disengaging and rolling down the street like a giant tire and demolishing a building. Sharknado is one giant WTF? And therein lies its genius. Common sense is over rated and if you watch this movie expecting any you are doing it wrong.
Sharknado is not a movie you just watch. YOU ARE A PART OF IT. It was the zenith...an absolute defining moment for human civilization. At no time in recent history have we seen so many THOUSANDS of people come together for two hours for a global bonding experiment. Even people who couldnt see the movie were participating in the discussion on twitter and facebook. And here is the key point. It was beyond buzz it was a "Sharknado-NADO." Everyone was laughing and talking and reacting even if just reacting to someone else's reaction. I am a twitter whore and have never seen anything like it. My eyeballs went coo coo because my left one was all the way left watching the movie but the right one was all the way right trying to keep up with the hundreds of tweets being posted in real time. It was like being part in my very own MSTK3000 with ...well...everybody. I even tweeted about that and Riff Tracks wrote back that the movie was beyond even their abilities but maybe they could just lay on the floor laughing and that could be their riff. Fine by me. I'd be on the floor with them. If you are a fan of B movies (and by B I mean BRILLIANT) and somehow missed this one, you will regret it for the rest of your life. Sharknado was unhinged, outrageous, ridiculous, absurd and irresistable. It was fun and in fun we came together as humans, if only for moment. 20 yrs from now kids will ask "was there EVER a time when everybody laughed as one" & we can smile & tell them about the Sharknado of 2013.
