More Sharknado 3 Goodness

19 Apr

Oh, hell yes…

More Sharknado news to share. Looks like Archie and the gang will face off against a Sharknado of their own this July.

Timed to coincide with the SyFy premiere of Sharknado 3, this one-off comic is the latest oddly wonderful mashup by the folks over at Archie comics. They’ve tackled zombies and predators, but do they have the chainsaw chops to survive flying sharks? We’ll find out in a few months.

Iron Sky Presents…

16 Apr

I’ll just put this here…

“Sharknado 3: Oh hell no!” gets a date!

31 Mar

Hold on to your hats, people! Everyone’s favourite shark-related weather disaster film is coming back – and will be shown on Syfy on July 22nd in the UK. To make sure it’s bigger, “better”, and more cheesy – this time they’ve reeled in the “talents” of The Hoff too!

Hasselhoff is quoted as saying “It’s the worst movie you have ever seen. The first one was the worst. The second one was even worse. I’m so honoured to be in Sharknado 3.”

We. Can’t. Wait.

Zombeavers

9 Jan

Zombeavers_film_posterFor Christmas, the other half of Two Geeks (Thomas) bought me the eagerly awaited Zombeavers which I wrote about a while ago. (He also bought me Wolf Cop but let’s not get ahead of ourselves here.) So, not long after the decimated carcass of Christmas dinner was binned, the wrapping paper tidied away, and I’d finally managed peel myself off my parents’ sofa to come back to Dundee, obviously, I needed to treat myself to this spectacle asap.

I wasn’t disappointed. In case you need to remind yourself of the promise of utter nonsense included in this film, here’s the trailer:

It’s not often that one of these films manages to tick all of the boxes but I can honestly say Zombeavers has everything I want in a B-movie. Terrible acting, an utterly ridiculous (and fairly simple) plot, an amusing script, dodgy anamatronics (always better than CGI, in my opinion), an awesome theme song, boobs for the men-folk, and plenty of humour – what more could you need?

We join a bunch of teenagers (complete with the usual relationship dramas) in an isolated cabin in the woods. Obviously, there’s also some scary judgmental, gun-toting locals who disapprove whole-heartedly of skin being on display, and obviously, a whole bunch of chemically-contaminated, psychotic beavers who evidently dislike people being on their turf. Chaos ensues, of course. Flaming anamatronic, whack-a-mole, beaver chaos.

zombeaverThe effects. What can I say? Well, for starters, the beavers are atrocious – but brilliantly so! They appear in doorways shreaking and looking like they’re having some sort of epileptic fit and wheel across the ground in blatant remote-controled-car-with-fake-fur-on-top fashion. Then there’s the effects later on – which are downright ridiculous, and yet it all just adds to the fun. It’s comedy gold.

The acting is, as expected, pretty questionable at best – however, it’s not quite ‘as bad as porn’ like some I could mention. The characters are, well, pretty ‘meh’ but that’s to be expected – you’re not meant to grow attached to them.

I have to hand it to the writers – they certainly weren’t afraid of taking it to the next level. This film brings plenty of laughs and, I won’t spoil it because it’s too good a moment, but it really ramps up the silly factor in the last half an hour or so. I will mention that, as you might have guessed from the mention above, there’s a suicidal flaming beaver which absolutely cracked me up.

All in all this one is right up there for me – hilariously bad! I have recommended it to a bunch of people already and I highly recommend it to you too!

P.S. I’d also like to share this blog post which I found while writing this post – which shows Zombeavers posters themed in other classic film styles.

Prometheus

16 Dec

I once worked with a huge Ridley Scott fan who, upon seeing this film, ranted for about a week solid about how terrible it was. (We’d then noticed that we could use the word “Prometheus” to send him into these hilarious rants at our will and got much amusement out of this.) Since then, not one person I’ve spoken to has said it was any good – in fact, many just make fart noises and proceed to complain about the gaping plot holes. With this in mind, I thought it high time I watched it for myself (and wrote about how terrible an experience it is).

Rainbow Man

2 Dec

During my most recent perusal of the interwebs, I found an article about “Rainbow Man” over on Neatorama.

I’m not quite so sure they need to make a full length movie for it (because, wow, it’d be super bad, and even I’m not sure I could endure an hour and a half of it) – however, the trailer in genius and it definitely made me laugh so I thought it’d be worth sharing with you guys.

Behold…THE POWER OF RAINBOW!

Coming Soon: Iron Sky 2!

10 Nov

Well people, it seems like those pesky moon nazis are back (presumably if the film gets funding). And this time they brought dinosaurs! And the Earth is hollow! And, oh god, could it get any more ridiculous? Why, yes, yes it could – they’re reptiles too!

Get this in your eyeholes pronto!
