New York has had its fair share of movie disasters over the years. Floods, aliens, meteors, dinosaurs, bombs and many, many more. If you can think of a horrible thing to happen to a city, somebody has probably done it to New York. They even had the result of global warming in the form of massive tidal waves and stupid amounts of snow. Both of these seem a little… unrealistic to me though.
Everybody knows that the effects of global warming are far more dire. If we don’t reduce our carbon emissions, we could be seeing a lot more SHARKNADOS. And this
documentary C-grade nonsense-fest will tell you all about it.
A freak weather system turns its deadly fury on New York City, unleashing a Sharknado on the population and its most cherished, iconic sites – and only Fin and April can save the Big Apple.
“That’s not a continuity error! That’s time travel!” – is the sort of mindset you’ll need to be in for a viewing of the first Sharknado movie and it likely holds true for the second as well. I’ve always thought it was kind of the makers to give physics a day off from its busy, busy schedule of, you know, keeping the world going. If you don’t like stupid movies, this won’t be for you. It also won’t be for you if you don’t have any friends. Because that’s who you need to watch this with. A group of you gather up, press play and embark on a journey of sarcastic physics lessons, cheering at shark chowing and preparing yourselves for puns.
It will be glorious.
If they can create a spectacle such as the original Sharknado movie with a low-budget and a suburban setting, imagine what they can do with cash-dollar in the great NYC. To give you an idea of the mindframe of the creators – at the end of Sharknado 1 (no real spoilers), instead of saying “The End,” they went for the old, French cinema, “Fin.” And I love them for it. So I have absolute faith that they will deliver with Sharknado 2: The Second One.
Prepare to break out of the realm of possibility like breaking out of a shark with a chainsaw, when Sharknado 2: The Second One debuts on SyFy on 30 July 2014. Have a FINtastic time.
