Movie Review: Sharknado


Hi Emily here, your ever faithful movie reviewer and media critic.

I just watched Sharknado and all I can say is “wow!” The movie that makes you ask the question “Are sharks really coming in a tornado to eat me? And if so, can they please hurry up and save me from watching the rest of this movie?”

Of course, I love to hate things. Especially myself. This movie amped up my self-loathing to new heights. It made me realize that someone out there hated me enough to make this movie and subject me to it. It is that kind of effort that warms my heart and makes me think that maybe, just maybe, there is someone out there for me.

That man is David Rimawi, executive producer of Sharknado. I figured it could get no better than Sharknado, until I stumbled upon the 2010 classis Mega Piranha and nearly wet myself. OK, I actually wet myself, so I hope he is into that.

I figure that if watching his movies is emotional torture than spending time in the editing room, laboring over every scene repeatedly would be heaven! So that is the plan. Hook up with David and get access to the editing room, where I can be forced to watch rough cuts of SyFy movies with names like:

    Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys
    Asteroid vs. Earth
    The Coed and the Zombie Stoner
    Bermuda Tentacles
    Airplane vs Volcano
    Apocalypse Pompeii
    Android Cop
    Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark

Of course, he is probably married, gay or in love with someone else, which will just make me want and need him more!

Rating: 4.5 Stars
