I Have Now Seen “Sharknado” And It Totally Lived Up To My Expectations

Published August 7, 2014 by ia84

Granted, it helps that my expectations were phenomenally low.  Almost non-existent.  Basically, I was expecting a really campy movie filled with sharks and tornadoes.  Which is exactly what I got.

I have to give the boy major props here, because not only did he put Sharknado on the DVR (after I told him that there was no way I’d ever understand the subtle nuances & intricate plot details in Sharknado 2 unless I saw the original), but he actually sat through the epic amazingness/awfulness with me.

I will say that despite the many  flaws (including a complete lack of understanding of how both water and tornadoes work), and the generally bad acting; Sharknado was a much better film than most films I’ve seen SyFy put out.  However, I really would have liked more tornadoes.  Maybe Sharknado 2 will fill that void for me.

I am kind of concerned now, though, because while watching, I learned that the boy hasn’t got a chainsaw, or a helicopter, or any explosives.  I’m really not sure what we’re going to do when this totally realistic weather event hits the Midwest.
