Gin @ Gin’s Book Notes suggested (jokingly) that I review this movie and suddenly the review was forming in my head. So, this random review of Sharknado was born. Enjoy!Sharknado by Thunder Levin

My Thoughts going in…
I had seen so many people talking about Sharknado – most notably Angie @ Pinkindle and Michelle @ Because Reading. And then my brother had seen it and thought it was hilarious. He also thought I probably wouldn’t like it because I don’t tend to like stupid movies. Or horror flicks. So a stupid movie billed as horror? Not a good sign. But I had to just see what the big deal was. So in I went…
The Good & The Bad…
There is absolutely nothing good about this movie. Seriously. The acting is horrible. The concept is ridiculous. The special effects are worse than awful. But all the bad stuff – that’s what made it good. It’s so freaking ridiculous that you can’t help but laugh.
Some questions I asked while watching Sharknado…
Note: There are some spoilers in these questions. If you care about having Sharknado spoiled that is. I’ve tried to word them so that most the big plot points (LOL, right, plot points) won’t be spoiled.
Was that a HammerHead shark, right next to a Great White Shark?
Why are they running? Shouldn’t they be safe on land?
You’re kidding me, right? (this question I asked numerous times)
You expect me to believe that scar is from what? (though it actually looks like a bad tattoo)
Did he just use a chair to kill a shark?
Where are all these sharks coming from?
How are there sharks in the pool and the house, but not in the street?
Anyone else wondering how the sharks survived in those drains?
Do all surfers know how to do this shit?
Is bomb making something you learn in pilot school? Because that doesn’t seem quite right…
And is that really how you make a bomb? Is that a fire alarm?
Why haven’t storm chasers figured out the bomb theory yet?
Wouldn’t that drop kinda kill the shark? Assuming that the lack of water or the tornado or the bomb wouldn’t have yet that is…
Again – where are all these sharks coming from?
Is it just me, or should he try out for the Olympics? That’s quite some distance he’s covering…
Did that shark just get bigger? And smaller again?
No freaking way! Did he really end up in the same shark?
How did that saw miss her?
They really made a Sharknado 2?
So yeah, that was the stupidest, worst movie ever. But I laughed my ass off and will definitely watch Sharknado 2 when it comes to Netflix. For now, though, my monthly stupid quotient has been met and then some!
