Adam C. and I tweeted the same thing simultaneously: holy crap, it walks on land.
Ho-lee shit this is a great big vat of awesome sauce. But how to tweet and comment simultaneously?
Great question. Obviously, here's for the reactions which take more than 140 characters to communicate. Which I'm sure will be manifold.
The pacing's a little off here. (I know! In a Corman flick? Hard to believe.)
I'm having trouble with the physics of sharktopus swimming, as well as the pacing. It moves like it has a tail, but it doesn't have a tail. It's tempting to explain the "pacing" or lack thereof in terms of the number of extras in bikinis that may or may not have been promised screen time.Also, I hope that my joke about using CIL for Sharktopus didn't drive less-than-fascinated parties to blog along with this.
I fear the wad was blown in the first 30-40 minutes. Maybe now that we have a reporter in jeopardy, things will pick up again.
Eh. That's not fair. The phrase "wad was blown" implies some sort of climax. Seems more like it started to get undressed then decided it was too high to bother.
...that was me. firefox, these days, either tries to spam post or strips my login. not sure what's up with that.
The director of this film has noticed that other directors sometimes employ split-screens with assymetric aspect ratios. He does not know why.
Well, it was a damn sight better than Sharks in Venice [Italy!], but it just couldn't sustain the holy shit quotient of the first half hour.
I'm pretty sure that this "final fight" sequence was filed at a Wet-'n-Wild water park.
Thanks AdamC, because I've been straining to name the sequel. Clearly it's "Sharktopus II: Sharktopus In Venice!"
I think you bring back Roberts and you hire Mickey Rourke, and you set the whole thing in lower Manhattan -- Sharktopus 2: Sharktopope of Greenwich Village.
Please tell me I'm not the only person who had a group that made a drinking game out of this.
I think you could bring back Robert Duvall as Boo Radlley in Sharktokillamockingbird.
Come on, there's a Cookiepuss joke in here somewhere.
Is it time for Tom Cruise to resuscitate his career with Sharktopgun? Or maybe you rescue James Bond from MGM's financial ills with Sharktomorrow Never Dies?
I was drinking in self defense, but without a sense of play typically associated with games.And how about Sharktwilight -- vampire shark week = 2x win-win date movie hotness
Or Sharktopussy?How about we take it political with "Sharktober Surprise"?
My lord, that was ridiculously silly, in particular the absurdly rushed conclusion, in which Sharktopus becomes surprisingly easy to hold off with a long pointy stick.
