Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! DVD Review

24 November 2015 6:42 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Anthony C. Ferrante

Starring: Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, Cassie Scerbo, Frankie Muniz and David Hasselhoff.

Running Time: 93 Minutes

Certification: 15

As if Sharknado and it’s sequel hadn’t provided enough toothy twisters for most people, the Syfy channel has delved back into it’s surprisingly popular franchise for a third instalment, the aptly named Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!

Armed with progressively more elaborate chainsaws and an uninspiring script, Ian Ziering, Tara Reid and Cassie Scerbo return to the fray – this time joined by Frankie Muniz and David Hasselhoff – as they attempt to snatch an unlikely victory from the jaws of defeat (sorry).

During a trip to Washington DC, Fin Shepard (Ziering) finds his shark-slaying services required when a storm obliterates the capital. With all flights grounded, Fin must battle his way to Orlando where his pregnant wife April (Reid) awaits and take on a sharknado that threatens the entire east coast. »

DVD Review – Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (2015)

23 November 2015 3:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!, 2015.

Directed by Anthony C. Ferrante.

Starring Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, David Hasselhoff, Cassie Scerbo, Frankie Muniz, Ryan Newman, Bo Derek, Mark Cuban, Jerry Springer, Michael Winslow, Chris Jericho, Mark McGrath, Ne-Yo, Jedward, and Lou Ferrigno.


A tornado. With Sharks… in space!

Stupid movies are one thing; stupid movies that are self-aware are something else and they don’t come more stupid or self-aware than the Sharknado movies. Inexplicably, the first Sharknado proved to be something of a cult hit, brought about by the fact that so many people latched onto the dumb premise and took it for the low-budget cable TV nonsense that it was, and then the inevitable happened – the sequel. Sharknado 2: The Next One followed closely behind and somebody with responsibility noticed that social media was taking the bait and that people were tuning in so, much like a novelty charity hit single, »

13 years ago today: Eminem’s history-making ‘Lose Yourself’ hit the top of the chart

9 November 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

13 years ago today, Eminem began what remains his longest stay atop the Billboard Hot 100 when  “Lose Yourself” reached No. 1. The rap hit held onto the top spot for 12 weeks. Written during breaks on set while filming “8 Mile,” the song loosely follows the storyline of the leading character’s struggle to break from poverty and launch a rap career. Eminem created an intense and memorable sound for the song with a moody electric guitar riff and his trademark tinkling piano punctuating hip-hop beats. Its stay atop the chart began a day after the theatrical release of “8 Mile.” The track was the first rap song to ever win an Oscar for Best Original Song, beating fellow nominees U2 and Paul Simon. Other notable November 9 happenings in pop culture history: • 1961: Brian Epstein, the Beatles’ famed manager, first saw a performance by the group that would become the Fab Four (though with Pete Best »

Cannon Films: A 10-Part Appreciation of the Studio That Revolutionized ‘So Bad, It’s Good’ Movies

2 October 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

For fans of trashy, low-budget action films, Cannon Films defined the 1980s. The company was revitalized, after a decade-long rocky start, by director Menahem Golan and producer Yoram Globus, Israeli cousins now seen by many as the dollar-store precursor to the Weinstein brothers. As tasteless as they were unscrupulous, Golan and Globus are responsible for a flood of Charles Bronson, Chuck Norris, and Jean-Claude Van Damme films, not to mention cheapy ninja-sploitation films, eccentric art-house films (including Jean-Luc Godard's King Lear and John Cassavetes's Love Streams), and, uh, Lou Ferrigno as Hercules. This week, Warner Brothers collected a ten-film DVD/Blu-Ray box set to coincide with and bolster the release of Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films, director Mark Hartley's funny, informative documentary. In the spirit of Hartley's inclusive doc, we present a list of the ten most Cannon-y moments included in the box set. »

Arnold Schwarzenegger To Host Us Celebrity Apprentice

14 September 2015 10:20 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With Donald Trump otherwise engaged with the small matter of his bid to become President of the United States, the Us version of Celebrity Apprentice was in need of a new host. And now it has one. It's Arnold Schwarzenegger. Everyone has already made the "You're Terminated" joke.The NBC show has been running for seven seasons with Trump. Like the Comic Relief and Sport Relief editions of the UK version, it involves celebrities working in teams to win challenges, with the lacklustre getting fired until there's only one person standing. Contestants have included Gary Busey, Andrew Dice Clay, Cyndi Lauper, Lou Ferrigno (shame that wasn't in an Arnie season), Steven Baldwin and Vivica Fox, with Piers Morgan, Arsenio Hall and Poison's Brett Michaels among the winners. You don't win a job, obviously. It's all for charity.“We are thrilled to be opening a powerful new chapter in the story of the ‘Apprentice’ franchise, »

28 July 2015 8:20 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Lou Ferrigno is a huge Donald Trump fan and wants him in the Oval Office, because he's the man who can keep our country safe.  Lou was at Lax Monday when our photog sheepishly asked about Trump, clearly thinking Lou -- a die-hard conservative -- would favor another candidate.    Lou clearly holds no grudges ...

7 Obscure Super Hero Films You Probably Haven’t Seen

26 July 2015 4:24 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 We’re currently in a boom period for superhero films, with plenty more on the way. It’s the golden age for comic book fans. Characters like Wonder Woman, Dr. Strange and the Justice League are all coming to theaters, joining established franchises like Thor and Captain America. But some of you may not know that these characters all had live-action movies made about them before. Cinelinx looks at 7 obscure super films you probably haven’t seen.

#1. Doctor Strange: In 1978, a two-hour made-for-tv movie aired about the master of the mystic arts. Dr. Strange was meant to be a pilot for a proposed weekly CBS TV series. Peter Hooten played Doctor Strange and Jessica Walters played villainess Morgana Le Fey. CBS was already airing Spider-Man and the Incredible Hulk and was trying to go for the hat trick, bringing the Doc to TV. However, it was not to be. »

‘Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No’ Review

26 July 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, Mark McGrath, Cassie Scerbo, David Hasslehoff, Frankie Muniz, Ryan Newman, Mark Cuban, Bo Derek, Blair Fowler, Michael Winslow | Written by Thunder Levin | Directed by Anthony C. Ferrante

Hellraiser did it, Jason Vorhees did it, and now the killer sharks of sharknado are doing it… they’re heading into Space!

Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No continues the story of Fin Shepard – fresh from receiving a medal of honour from the President of the United States  and a mini-battle with a sharknado in Washington, D.C. – who, this time round takes on an ever-growing succession of sharknado’s that, eventually, build to a sharknado “wall” that can only be stopped by launching Fin Shepard and his dad (played by David Hasslehoff) into outer space to literally burn the sharks out of Earth’s upper atmosphere!

As per the previous film, Sharknado 3 is filled with celebrity cameos, »

These were the 8 most cringeworthy and laugh-out-loud outrageous moments from Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!

23 July 2015 3:59 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Batten down your hatches - Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! is now making landfall on both sides of the Atlantic.

With the UK getting its first glimpse of the Asylum's latest disaster-piece tonight (July 23), we bring you the 8 best and very worst moments from Sharknado 3 below:

1. White House Down

There's a certain art to a Sharknado opening scene. Viewers want their man-eating sharks and lots of blood from the get-go, and each new movie has to find a new way to satisfy them.

This time around, a hokey presidential ceremony - complete with a genuinely depressing cameo from all-time great comedian Robert Klein for the second year running - for the one-man army known as Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) was quickly dispatched so the sharks could starting destroying the Us capital.

Producers The Asylum's choice to give non-actors Mark Cuban and Ann Coulter lots of speaking lines in Sharknado was a bit negligible, »

Rudd Ant Hero Has Worst Marvel Cinematic Universe Domestic Debut to Date

20 July 2015 3:41 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Ant-Man': Paul Rudd as Scott Lang. 'Ant-Man' box office below expectations: Lowest Marvel Cinematic Universe domestic debut Starring Paul Rudd as a bug-like (sizewise) action hero, Ant-Man was expected to open with $60-$65 million from 3,856 U.S. and Canada locations this past weekend, July 17-19, '15. That didn't happen. A mere three days ago, Variety enthused that Ant-Man was "marching to a solid $65 million weekend at the U.S. box office." But instead of a $65 million domestic debut like those of Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, Ant-Man bowed with a considerably more modest $57.22 million (down from the studio's $58.04 million Sunday estimate), including Thursday evening screenings. This latest Marvel Cinematic Universe entry averaged a highly disappointing – especially for an McU entry with loads of steeper-priced 3D and IMAX / Pfl screenings – $14,841 per location. But really, why "highly disappointing"? Trailing 'The Incredible Hulk' Even taking into account the fact »

15 years in the making and ‘I Am Thor’ makes for the most memorable screening at the Fantasia Film Festival

20 July 2015 11:04 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

I Am Thor

Directed by Ryan Wise

2015, USA / Canada /Finland / Sweden

Heavy metal lyrics and performance styles are often associated with masculinity, aggression, and machismo but even by Heavy metal standards, the artist known as Thor (a.k.a. Jon Miki Thor) is an absolute beast!

The Norse god impersonator, semi-professional bodybuilder, performance artist, b-movie actor, and all-around nice guy is the subject of I Am Thor, an 84 minute documentary by director Ryan Wise which shines some insight into Thor’s wild life and documents his long-running come back. With a music career spanning five decades, Thor is one of the legends of rock-n-roll that not enough people know exists —and hopefully this film will change that. 15 years in the making and I Am Thor is finally here, and totally worth the wait.

I’ve seen some remarkable screenings over my 19 years of attending the Fantasia Film Festival. I’ll never forget the enthusiastic, »

James Garcia reviews Mark Edlitz’ new book, How To Be A Superhero…

Each day, the internet is flooded with news stories about each and every piece of development surrounding an upcoming comic book adaptation or superhero film. We here at Flickering Myth spend our days dissecting and discussing those various topics with as much fervor and excitement as any fan out there. Yet, while there are dozens of stories or quotes circling the web at any given time, they usually only pertain to one part of a larger story; actors give brief updates about their upcoming roles, writers and directors talk about various influences, etc.

Enter Mark Edlitz, whose impressive tome How To Be A Superhero puts all of those news reports to shame by diving headfirst into the expansive superhero genre with long, in-depth interviews with dozens of the genre’s veterans, like Adam West, Jack Nicholson, John Wesley Shipp, »

Lou Ferrigno to dish out ‘Instant Death’

22 May 2015 1:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Bodybuilding legend, and star of the hit 70’s TV show The Incredible Hulk, Lou Ferrigno is to star in Instant Death, the latest film from Raging Pictures. The gritty, revenge thriller will be directed by Ara Paiaya, whose previous film Skin Traffik (known in the UK as A Hitman In London) is currently being released around the World.

The film marks something of a departure for Ferrigno who has predominantly done family and comedy films over the years (but has appeared in a handful of more violent films) and has regularly cameoed in some form with Marvels recent incarnations of the Hulk.

“A vicious gang war for drug dominance draws in a disturbed Special Forces Veteran (Ferrigno). Trying to adjust to normal life and haunted by inner demons and a violent past, the underworld’s retribution on his daughter and grandchild (his last connections to humanity) leads him to a »

In Defence Of... Ang Lee's multi-million dollar psychodrama Hulk

16 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

At the time of writing, Marvel have not yet confirmed a third standalone Hulk movie, but without giving anything away, the closing events of Avengers: Age of Ultron definitely leave that door wide open. With that in mind, it seems like the perfect time to re-appraise ol' greenskin's first big screen outing, Ang Lee's multi-million dollar psychodrama, Hulk.

Released in 2003, Hulk took a total of $132.2 million at the Us box office, just short of its reputed £137 million budget. Though it eventually took over $245 million worldwide, it was perceived as a flop, significantly under-performing compared to the likes of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man or Bryan Singer's X-Men movies. Hulk not box-office Smash, in other words. Critics weren't overly kind either – it earned 62% on review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes, indicating decidedly mixed reviews albeit with a positive slant.

Based on the Marvel comics character created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby »

Watch Stan Lee give a cameo acting masterclass to Tara Reid and Lou Ferrigno

30 April 2015 4:29 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Stan Lee is the world's greatest cameo actor, and now he's passing on his wisdom to the next generation.

The actor filmed a tongue-in-cheek masterclass with stars like Tara Reid, Michael Rooker, Lou Ferrigno and Jason Mewes, telling them how to make the most of the briefest of on-screen appearances.

"I didn't get to be the world's greatest cameo actor overnight," he says. "It took years of hard work."

The video was released to coincide with the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, following Lee's many fleeting guest appearances in Marvel films.

Over the years, Lee has popped up in Hulk, Iron Man, Thor and The Avengers.

He has also made appearances in multiple Spider-Man movies, and made an animated cameo in Disney and Marvel's Big Hero 6.
