'Sharknado': The Entire Movie Told in Tweets and GIFs
Ian Ziering as Fin and Cassie Scerbo as Nova in the Syfy Original Movie, Sharknado.
For those who haven't been following the news, a sharknado hit Los Angeles last night: a deadly combination of half-baked idea and quarter-baked budget (from the artistes who brought us "Transmorphers," "Snakes on a Train," and, of course, "Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus").
If you missed it, fear not. If you DVRed it, delete it. Here is everything you need to know about the movie.
Actress and humanitarian Mia Farrow watched the film along with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Philip Roth. Roth wasn't actually there — Farrow posted the pic as a joke and deleted the tweet soon after. Presumably, after the Pulitzer committee threatened to take away his award.
The above commentary on Mia Farrow's tweet came from comedian Patton Oswalt, who had many, many more things to say on the subject of sharks, tornadoes, and the marriage thereof.
Just got a call from the 2nd A.D. on the movie I'm filming. Call time canceled tomorrow. ALL movies canceled. It's done. #SharkNado— Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) July 12, 2013
Not everybody was pleased by the film's response. Michael Chiklis ("The Shield") seemed a little angry that a terrible film received so much attention. Maybe he has a hole in his memory the approximate size and shape of "Fantastic Four"?
Oh Goddamn it, now I want to see it too and then I'm gonna want to quit the business...again! #SharkNado— Michael Chiklis (@MichaelChiklis) July 12, 2013
Most everybody else, though, embraced the awfulness. Writer and producer Damon Lindelof ("Lost", the new "Star Trek" movies) is already hard at work on the sequel.
