Throwback Thursday-Sharknado (2013)

The Syfy channel is not exactly known for producing intellectual, high-minded entertainment.

In 2013, Sharknado premiered on the channel. Los Angeles is hit by a hurricane. Somehow, sharks are imported from the sea and are attacking the land dwelling population. It’s up to Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) and April Wexler (Tara Reid) to kill to save the city and her citizens before it’s too late.

Sharknado is one of those films that you either love or you late. You love it because it’s fun, campy and does not require many brain cells to¬† enjoy. You hate it because it is gory, dumb and the narrative is too simple. I’m personally in the middle. As much as I enjoy entertainment that makes me think, I also enjoy entertainment that is just plain fun and does not require a lot of thinking. But, the writer in me would prefer a more complex narrative than is presented.

Do I recommend it? Maybe.
