‘Sharknado 2: The Second One’ Blu-ray Review

26 October 2014 11:07 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, Vivica A. Fox, Mark McGrath, Kari Wuhrer, Courtney Baxter, Dante Palminteri | Written by Thunder Levin | Directed by Anthony C. Ferrante

Fin Shepard (Ziering) and his ex-wife April (Reid) are flying to New York City when their plane enters the most unnatural of storms and is battered by airborne sharks. As blood is shed and passengers are maimed in the skies, New York awakens and people spill onto the streets, unaware of the peril descending rapidly towards them… a sharknado is about to hit the big apple! Armed with weapons and explosives, Fin realises he must risk all to save his sister’s family from the greatest of danger as floods and storms crash into the city.

The first Sharknado was something of an unexpected phenomenon. Your typical monster-movie produced by The Asylum, it captured the imagination of more than just those of who usually tune-in »

Getting under the skin of Anaconda

23 October 2014 2:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Nineties giant snake movie Anaconda comes under James's microscope. Could it be more than just another scaly B-movie?

"You don't know shit about the shit we're in here!" Gary Dixon (Owen Wilson) in Anaconda. That sentence pretty accurately sums up most people's appreciation of both the movie Anaconda, life in general and the state of the Universe. When you've finished reading this article, you will know some shit.

Do you remember Anaconda? The 1997 killer snake film starring Jennifer Lopez, Ice Cube and Jon Voight? It had the tagline "When you can't breathe you can't scream"? It got nominated for six Razzies but, in spite of such ignominy, went on to become a cult hit and spawned three sequels?

Until a couple of weeks ago I didn't remember Anaconda because I'd never seen it. Somehow this pleasure had passed me by, and it existed as a sizeable hole in my pop »

'Sharknado 3' to Ravage the 'Feast Coast' Next Summer

20 October 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The first two "Sharknado" films brought skyborne sharks to Los Angeles and New York City. Not to be outdone, the third outing in the Syfy franchise will wreak havoc on the entire East Coast -- er, Feast Coast, that is.

In an announcement on the official "Sharknado" Twitter page, Syfy revealed that "Sharknado 3" would take on "the Feast Coast," raining down carnivorous creatures from Washington, D.C. to Orlando. It's unclear if any cast members from the first two films will reprise their roles.

Review: Sharknado 2: The Next One

8 October 2014 2:37 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Last year’s Anthony C. Ferrante’s Sharknado took the world by storm, sparking an internet sensation and catapulting the B-movie into a household name, with everything from toys to kids’ pajamas being sold to help cash in on the instant pop culture phenomenon. Almost immediately after its release, a sequel was in the works, and a year later: Sharknado 2: The Next One came, upping the ante on everything from celebrity cameos to gore and absurdity.

Taking place a year after the first film, Sharknado 2 finds the first film’s heroes, Fin and April, heading to a book tour to promote April’s book on how to survive a Sharknado. After giving fans a fun homage to both Airplane! (complete with a cameo by Robert Hays) and The Twilight Zone‘s ‘Nightmare At 20,000 Feet‘, the setting is switched from Los Angeles to New York, where everything is bigger and better. »

Forget yesterday's pre-Emmy Award party, Tara Reid attended last night's (August 21) true primetime event - the Sharknado 2: The Second One movie premiere.

The 38-year-old actress, who reprises her role as April Wexler for the Sharknado sequel, arrived in a plunging neon pink crop top and matching high-waisted skirt for the Asylum & Fathom Events screening at the Regal cinema.

She was joined by co-star and estranged on-screen husband Ian Ziering, as well as producers David Garber, David Latt and David Rimawi.

Sharknado 2 made its SyFy debut on July 30, and proved a smash hit in the ratings with approximately 3.90m viewers and a 1.3 Nielsen ratings score.

The tongue-in-cheek disaster movie, which sees the Sharknado hit New York City, features the likes of Vivica A. Fox, Kari Wuhrer, Kelly Osbourne and Judah Friedlander.

Reid recently admitted that she was embarrassed by the first Sharknado film and refused to promote it before »

Sharknado 2: The Second One – 14 Awesomely Ridiculous Moments

31 July 2014 12:10 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

SyFy

In the lineage of movie sequels that outdid their predecessors, there’s The Godfather Part 2, Aliens, Terminator 2, The Dark Knight, and now…Sharknado 2: The Second One. Sharknado premiered on SyFy last July, and became an instant hit with audiences, aided by the fact that viewers were encouraged to Tweet about the movie as they watched it.

What was it that made the latest offering from The Asylum so eminently watchable? The gleefully silly, go-for-broke absurdity of it all, where nothing was outside the realm of possibilities, and the low $2 million budget didn’t stop them crafting some wild set-pieces, even if the effects were diabolical, the acting mostly terrible, and the central plot completely forgettable.

It was a charming movie, and the clear love with which it was made earned it a place in the hearts of cineastes the world over for its “so bad it’s good” quality, »

‘Sharknado 2’ Draws Syfy Record 3.9 Million Viewers

31 July 2014 12:03 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sharknado” hasn’t yet jumped the shark with viewers, as Syfy’s sequel to last year’s creature feature drew a sizable crowd of 3.9 million viewers on Wednesday night — dwarfing the original’s total, according to Nielsen’s “live plus same-day” estimates.

Sharknado 2: The Second One,” in which Ian Ziering and Tara Reid return to battle a Sharknado unleashed on New York City, gave the network its most-watched original movie ever.

See Also: Twitter Much Bigger for ‘Sharknado 2

By comparison, the NBCUniversal cabler averaged 987,000 viewers in primetime for the first four weeks of July. And in recent years, its biggest recent movie prior to last night was “Swamp Shark,” which gobbled up about 2.2 million in June 2011.

In adults 18-49, “Sharknado 2″ averaged about 1.6 million viewers — nearly triple what the original attracted — and outdrew Wednesday broadcast originals like “Extant,” “Motive” and “So You Think You Can Dance.”

The 5 Most Ridiculous Moments from "Sharknado 2: The Second One"

30 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

For reasons unknown, we all watched "Sharknado 2: The Second One" on SyFy on Wednesday night, knowing full well that it was going to be a pretty horrible movie.But the flick managed to exceed our extremely low expectations, thanks to a parade of cameos, a badass Vivica A. Fox and one of the most ridiculous endings to a TV movie (or any movie) ever. Was it still bad? Of course, but you knew that already. Here are the 5 craziest things that went down in Ian Ziering and Tara Reid's latest television masterpiece. 1.)  Kelly Osbourne gets decapitated It didn't take long for the sharks to start flying and Ozzy Osbourne's daughter was one of the first to go. She got it bad too, playing a flight attendant whose head comes clean off. 2.) Tara Reid Loses An ArmAfter the traumatic plane attack, Tara's left without a limb. "This shark »

10 Biting Lessons We Learned from 'Sharknado 2: The Second One'

30 July 2014 8:05 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It's the bad-movie franchise that Twitter built. When Sharknado – the saga of a man, his chainsaw and a bunch of poorly CGI'd sharks flying through the air in L.A. – aired on Syfy last year, it became a surprise social-network sensation, racking up enough mentions to compete with the likes of Game of Thrones. Suddenly the Asylum, the production house known for direct-to-video knockoffs like Transmorphers and Syfy schlock like Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, had a hit on its hands. The sequel, which debuted tonight, had an expensive NYC setting, »

TV Review: 'Sharknado 2: The Second One' offers more polish, slightly less charm

30 July 2014 5:28 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I know I've thought it and said it and probably even written it, but there's something vaguely condescending about the notion that the "Sharknado" franchise is somehow review-proof or review-immune or however you'd prefer to view it.  Just because something is designed to be a guilty pleasure doesn't mean that it can't achieve its goals with more or less craft. And just because something isn't necessarily meant to be taken seriously doesn't mean that those aspirations can't be achieved with more or less success. Because the desire to be taken seriously or viewed as legitimate is hardly an argument to be reviewed or acknowledged in the case of utter ineptitude.  For example, look at CBS' "Under the Dome." It has a literary pedigree, some respectable creative auspices, a cast of familiar TV faces, a position of some prominence in CBS' lineup and a reputation as a summertime success, even if »

29 July 2014 10:10 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In the Syfy original movie Sharknado 2: The Second One, directed by Anthony C. Ferrante from a screenplay by Thunder Levin, 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 leaving Fin (Ian Ziering) and April (Tara Reid) to save the Big Apple.  The film also stars Vivica A. Fox, Mark McGrath, Kari Wuhrer, Judah Friedlander, Judd Hirsch, Kelly Osbourne, Andy Dick and Perez Hilton. During this exclusive interview with Collider, Sugar Ray frontman Mark McGrath talked about how he got involved with Sharknado 2, being a fan of the first film, adjusting his big performing style to the subtleties of acting, why he enjoys getting lost in a character, that they had to do a lot of script changes on the fly, how great it was to get to shoot in New York City, »

Sharknado 2 Has Arrived! 9 Reasons to Watch, 6 Questions You Should Ask

Sharknado 2: The Second One storms Syfy this Wednesday at 9/8c, having been greenlit near-immediately in the wake of last summer’s social media-feeding frenzy.

Once again starring Ian Ziering (Beverly Hills, 90210) and Tara Reid (American Pie) — as Fin, a surfer turned action-hero (…turned 747 pilot?), and his lady love April — the splashy sequel moves the action to New York City, where the toothy twister phenomenon amazingly has tailed the triumphant twosome.

TV Review: ‘Sharknado 2! The Second One’

28 July 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Around the time National Geographic produces its inevitable retrospective “The 2010s: What Was That All About?” historians should have a clearer understanding of why “Sharknado,” out of all the cheekily exploitative schlock movies programmed by Syfy, became a Twitter meme and cultural phenomenon. Fellow Syfy movies like “Sharktopus” and “Piranhaconda” must be kicking themselves. Inevitably, that mini-eruption spawned “Sharknado 2! The Second One,” which plops down into the summer, cheesy as ever, with an added infusion of conspicuous celebrity cameos that success has made possible. In that respect, it’s not just our fishy friends who can smell blood in the water.

Not surprisingly, the sequel indulges in all kinds of callbacks — treating the earlier version as if it were “Citizen Kane” — while relocating from Los Angeles to New York, after one very unfortunate flight (with Robert Hays, no less, as the pilot) that bears survivors Fin (Ian Ziering) and »
