I apologise for the weird sound mixing in this episode.
It seems fine in my editor but here it's all over the shop.
Sorry, folkcycles, I'll try and ensure this issue is resolved by the next episode.

Now, when I heard there was going to be a Sharknado 2, I was skeptical from the get-go.  I very so much didn’t like the first one and I knew a sequel that would come out barely over a year later would not have much effort to it.  And I reluctantly saw this TV movie.  And if I refused to see it, my friends probably would have forced me to watch it anyhow.  Some of my friends claim some films are “junkfood movies,” meaning you still enjoy them despite them being bad.  To this day I’m still trying to see if that logic is possible for me.

So this time the film only is Ian Ziering and Tara Reid as returning cast members.  Their characters Finn and April are heading to New York to meet Ian’s sister and his in-laws.  On the plane ride there, their plane wanders into the new sharknado.  And the storm is on its way to New York.

I’m going to rate individual stats for this movie.
Characters: The characters are bland and uninteresting.  Even though I saw the first one, I STILL forgot the names of Finn and April and had to look up their names on the Sharknado 2 Wikipedia page to remember them.  Nothing about them sticks out or seems alive.  When characters are dying, you really don’t feel that bad about their deaths because there was nothing of substance to them.  The only character that was worth seeing was the cameo from Jared the Subway guy! (The movie would have been nothing without his cameo as a person waiting for a subway train…. Wait, did they try to make this a pun?!?!?)  Even with Jared’s cameo, the character factor deserves a 1/10.

Hey fellas,

Some time ago I've posted my very first movie review here, which was Psycho Cop.

Now, a few months later, I've uploaded two more reviews.

    Oancitizen Kyle Kallgren's reviews have opened my eyes to a lot of terrifying and bizarre refuse masquerading as legitimate art, but, to my boundless appreciation, he has also introduced me to some truly brilliant films worth experiencing. While I enjoyed the smorgasbord of classicist delights he delivered us with "Shakespeare Month," the one I felt most curious about, and indeed proved most worthy, was Derek Jarman's Frankenstein-like film resurrection of the Bard's play The Tempest.

    This is no reverential piece of classic drama reworked for cinematic audiences; Derek Jarman's work has thrived on its irreverence and subversion of classical ideals. His Tempest follows on the heals of his previous film Jubilee, a strange tale about a future where the punk movement of the late 70s broke down the class structure and established government of Great Britain, and this future is visited by Queen Elizabeth I, who has been magically transported through time with the aide of her court astrologist John Dee. (On an interesting side note: that film featured characters played by punk icons Toyah Willcox and Adam Ant as well as Rocky Horror alumni Richard O'Brian and Nell Campbell, to name only a couple noteworthy appearances.) This seems to sum up the bulk of Jarman's projects: classic sensibilities (particularly when it comes to British nationalism) being rent asunder by counter-culturalist rage at the system. This theme would be revisited, to some extent, in The Tempest, which is not only an Elizabethan-era play done in a surrealist, irreverent style, it also features much of the same cast as Jubilee.
  

  For those who are unfamiliar with the play, Shakespeare's The Tempest is set on a remote island where the magician Prospero, the exiled rightful Duke of Millan, plans to restore his daughter Miranda to her rightful title and take revenge upon his brother and usurper Antonio with the complicit King Alonso of Naples. He conjures a tempest to lure the King's ship to his island, whereupon he works upon them conjurations with the aide of his reluctant slave, the spirit Ariel, while meanwhile enslaving Antonio's son Ferdinand, laboring to spark a romance between him and Miranda. In the end, Prospero forgives his betrayers, warning them against further misdeeds, Miranda and Ferdinand are wed, Ariel is set free, and Prospero relinquishes his magic powers. The play is considered allegorical for the nature of art, particularly theater, for its reference to magic in the context of a spectacle or trickery of illusion, for its presentation of the spirit Ariel as a creature constantly changing his form to fool an "audience," and for its direct references to theatre art itself (using such phrasing as refers to the world as a "pageant" and to characters cast as actors in a troupe). Many consider the character of Prospero to represent Shakespeare himself, the great conjurer of theatrical illusions, who, in the end, gives up his powers, just as Shakespeare gave up sole authorship of his plays after The Tempest.

Noticeably low budget, terrible special effects, religious overtones, just a complete mess to look at.  But I liked it.

Want to know about Halley's Comet from a low-budget, direct to video series?  Watch as I run you through the strange songs and interesting information that the video describes, such as what a comet is made of, and how to watch for the comet.  I even show you some of the photographs that other satellites took of the comet.  Stay tuned after the credits for some info about Mark Twain's connection to the comet, along with another video from that same year (1986).
