"Enough said!"



Not since "Snakes on a Plane" has there been such a perfect movie concept.

Now that's jumping a shark.

Or a shark jumping.

Or something.

Tim said...

Oh Lord Jesus, another shitty movie.

Ain't nobody got time for that!

BarrySanders20 said...

What could be more terrifying than a tornado?

A tornado WITH SHARKS!

Who came up with this? The kids sitting around on the floor with the guy from the AT&T commercial?

Nonapod said...

Wonder if this is a Roger Corman movie.

Icepick said...

Oh, come on, Althouse. Roger Corman's studio cranks stuff out like this all year every year. Just the other day I was watching "Dinocroc vs. Supergator", and save for the lack of Samuel S. Jackson saying "Get these motherfucking crocodillians off my motherfucking island!" it was every bit as good as "Snakes on a Plane".

Icepick said...

Nonapod's on the right track too!

Bob Ellison said...

I got time for that! My sons and I will try to do it as a double-header with Fire Twister!

If Tara Reid shows us her boobs I'm calling it a win.

Nonapod said...

Roger Corman is awesome, the king of goofy B movie shlock. A lot of great film directors got their start with him.

And in front of the camera too! Jack Nicholson, for example.

I like the way it combines one scary thing with another scary thing in a perfectly childish way.

A tornado is really scary.

Oh, yeah. Well, what about a tornado with sharks!

Unknown said...

And don't forget the soon-to-be-released PIRANACONDA!

edutcher said...

Corman's still alive????

Ann Althouse said...

I love the poster too, especially the absurdity of the words "enough said" being excessive verbiage. The movie title and the image are already the whole thing.

Tim said: "Ain't nobody got time for that!" But everybody's got time to look at the poster. And that's it. That's enough. Entertainment perfectly accomplished.

I have no words for this...

After her botched upgrades? I wouldn't be so sure...

Throw in a 10 minute lesbian sex scene and I'm in.

Roger Corman is 87, and has at least four movies coming out this year. (He's a producer.) One has already been released ("Virtually Heroes"), another is awaiting airing (TV movie "The Living Dead") and he has two in post-production that should be out later this year.

And Piranhaconda came out last year, along with "Attack of the Fifty Foot Cheerleader" and "Stealing Las Vegas".

Personally I liked 2010, with such films as "Dinoshark" and "Sharktopus", along with "Dinocroc vs. Supergator", amongst others!

Tibore said...

Aha! I figured out how to one-up this for a sequel: Make 'em Nazi sharks.

:D

As an aside: Who besides me is mourning the death of the drive-in theater culture for movies like this? There's only one left nearby me and I doubt they'll try to get this film in. Which sort of makes me sad.

Needs lightning shooting out of the tornadoes.

Or little thought bubbles around all the sharks: I'm here from the IRS.

edutcher said...

Even better, give each a face - Holder, the Silver Haired Angel of Death, Pelosi Galore, Turbo Tax Timmy, Shotgun Joe, the She Devil of the SS, phx...

MadisonMan said...

I like that Ziering's character's name is Fin.

Tibore said...

No, wait! Wait: Make 'em zombie sharks! If we're going to go all the way, let's go all the way and make the suicide-cocktail of all horror flicks. NaziZombieSharknados. From Space.

I'm tellin' ya, put that movie out and everyone from Troma films to Corman himself will rage quit the business. "That's it. We're done. We can't hang with crazy-ass s*** like this."

bpm4532 said...

still more entertaining than Behind the Candelabra.

"NaziZombieSharknados. From Space."

You forgot the lasers.

Bob Ellison said...

Tibore, I have several times used a TV projector and a basic stereo amp with cheap speakers to play a movie in the back yard on a wall. Goes great with a campfire and marshmallows. Those 3M mini projectors are only about $150 now. Kids of all ages love the atmosphere!

ricpic said...

Five Sharks! Count 'em, Five!!

Kevin said...

Didn't know that veteran character actor John Heard was that hard up for cash. The first two I get, him I don't.

Awww, crap. My one-up got one-upped. :(

That would rock. I should do that... stick a projector out there on the deck. Raise a screen with a bedsheet or something. Light up the grill. Set up some comfy garden chairs in the grass...

... then get chased off the property because I live in a condo and don't have a backyard, so I'd be ursurping the nearby neighborhood's ones. ;)

I've often thought that myself about Michael Caine. But wasn't he the one who said about one of the Jaws movies he did (paraphrasing), 'Never saw it. But I can see the house it built just fine'?

"I like the way it combines one scary thing with another scary thing in a perfectly childish way."

Sounds like a fun comment challenge! Relate it to fears in the news.

Big Tobacula!

High Fructose Corn Mummies!

Consider that Michael Caine was in Jaws: The Revenge and it could be that to some actors, a paycheck is a paycheck.

William said...

I don't get it. I just don't think that being swept up in tornado would trigger a feeding frenzy in a shark. I would prefer a movie about a couple who seek shelter in a habitat occupied by lesbo vampires.

Icepick said...

I was at a convention once to hear Bruce Campbell speak. At some point there was a brief session where people gave him a movie title and he gave a quick description of what he thought of it. For some movie his answer was simply "Mortgage payment." It's great to be so successful that one can act for art, but people gotta eat, and the best thing an actor can be is "working".

...

Related, sort of. Was watching one of those "Best One-Hit Wonders" shows on VH1 years ago. Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray was being asked about some of the acts, and he said something to the effect of

"There are all kinds of levels of success for a band. And you gotta understand that "one-hit wonder" is WAY high up the ladder of success."

A tornado with sharks WITH FRICKIN' LASERS STRAPPED TO THEIR HEADS!

I wonder what kind of drugs are needed to able to dream this stuff up? And even more powerfull drugs are needed to believe financing, producing and exhibiting this stuff is a good idea? The suits at NBC-Comcast must be a cunts hair away from the nut-house. Incidentally now that NBC has decided to not renew Leno's contract his ratings are peaking. Someday Wharton or HBS will be using this as a case management course. NBC has an uncanny ability to turn anything in to crap.

LordSomber said...

You're gonna need a bigger boat.

Astro said...

Yeah, disappointed they don't have frickin' lasers.

/Holds pinkie finger at corner of mouth.

"Tim said: "Ain't nobody got time for that!" But everybody's got time to look at the poster. And that's it. That's enough. Entertainment perfectly accomplished."

Indeed. Time for the poster, time enough to know I don't need to see the movie, lol!

'nuff Said!

Are they ill-tempered?"

Rusty said...

I miss MST3000.

EMD said...

It will probably make money because it is so cheap to produce compared to a normal feature film.

Also, remember, that the global market is more lucrative than domestic these days. Case in point: Hawaii 5-0 gets mediocre to bad ratings. But it will reach syndication because of the overseas pre-sales. It's very popular outside the U.S.

Jeff Gee said...

Well, at least John Heard can say his name is spelled right on the poster. That puts him one up on Ian Ziering.

Eustace Chilke said...

We'll see whether it's up to the standards of Mega Python vs Gatoriod.

Clyde said...

Obviously this has something to do with runoff from fields of GMO crops. I expect picketing of Monsanto at the premiere!

MCD said...

Saw a funny movie advertisement at a bus stop the other day:

"The Epic Finale to the Hangover Trilogy"

It's gonna be a long summer.

Amartel said...

"When a freak hurricane swamps Los Angeles, thousands of sharks terrorize the waterlogged populace. And when the high-speed winds form tornadoes in the desert, nature’s deadliest killer rules water, land, and air."

How do the sharks survive ("rule")on land and in the air?

Ahm kinfuzed.

Prediction: John Heard plays a scientist who will opine about the deadly effects of global warming/climate change. And then a shark will eat him.

GOD YES!!! Another "so bad it's good" potential Hall of Famer. (Although one risks the "so bad it's a really bad film frolic in the bargain-basement philosophical cheap-thrills bargain-bin..)

Methadras said...

Not since "Snakes on a Plane" has there been such a perfect movie concept.

Bullshit, I made up a movie called Shocktapus. It was about a permanent storm that randomly flew around the earth and strike at any Japanese people underneath it. Instead of lighting, I substituted tentacles. Yeah, I did.

Now that's jumping a shark.

I wonder if Henry Winkler will make a cameo?

Oh brother. It's "'nough said" not "enough said"
