RiffTrax: Sharknado

The guys from RiffTrax are doing another nationwide event.  They're riffing "Sharknado", last summer's surprise hit for SyFy network.  This movie is stupid, but at least they knew it was stupid making it so it's fun.  And we get to see the MST3K guys making fun of it.

A hurricane floods the streets of Los Angeles, bringing sharks and tornados, and then sharknados!  If you don't know what a sharknado is, ask a friend.  It's up to Ian Ziering (Beverly Hills 90210) and Tara Reid (American Pie, The Big Lebowski, a bunch of awful movies) to save the day!  Well, Ian Ziering really.  Tara Reid doesn't do anything useful.

There are two Sharknado showings for Rifftrax.  The live event is on July 10.  I'm scheduling this for the encore event on July 15 because that will likely be less busy.

The movie starts at 7:30 PM.  Let's meet in the lobby near the piano at 7:00.  If you'll be late or if you need help finding the group, call my cell phone at[masked]-0455.

    Another unique film event courtesy of the RiffTrax guys - a preposterous movie made more silly with jokes flying faster than the sharks. My favorite heckle of Tara Reid - when she just stares directly at the camera with no expression on her face while watching someone getting eaten, and they responded with "Oh look it's cute... she's trying to act."

    It seems like these special shows get more popular each time, so it was good to see the familiar faces from our group. Thanks David for adding the event - Dan and I are looking forward to their version of Godzilla (1998) next month.

    A fantastic laugh..... Question..... How did Tara Reid endure until the last frame of the film? Was it her high IQ, or brilliant acting or Was it the huge quantity of neurotoxins/botox poison (from injections) that the sharks could detect/sense? David, Thanks for organizing this crazy film - good fun ......

    I'm afraid I won't be able to make it after all. You can definitely put me down for the Rifftrax Godzilla screening in August though :-)

    My friend is taking me shopping after work and I'm going to try to convince him to come. If not, I probably won't be able to make it.

    Does this cost as much as a regular movie?

      Hi Monique. No, this is a special event so it costs a few dollars more.

    I stopped receiving movie meetup events so I think I got myself re-connected. Not sure what happened but I hope to start "meeting up" for a movie and say hi to everyone.

    Newsflash: the filming of Sharknado 3 is underway, scheduled to appear on the SyFy channel in summer 2015. I'm sure that all Selachimorpha will be happy to hear this :)
