    Review: AIRPLANE VS.VOLCANO, From the People Who Brought You Sharknado

    I don't know much about airplanes or volcanoes, but I did watch AIRPLANE VS VOLCANO, the movie so nice they named it in all caps.

    Sharknado Sequel Given Title That’s as Dumb as You’d Expect

    Oh, Sharknado, what a ridiculous phenomenon you've become -- so much so that now The Asylum, a company known for their mockbuster films, is considered culturally relevant now. What's more, they're putting out a sequel -- and now we know what it will be called.

    Sharknado’s Getting a Sequel: This Must Be What Skynet Employees Felt Like

    Oh sure, we all laughed at the Sharknado trailer when we first saw it online. We live-tweeted the Syfy movie's premiere. We called it the greatest thing to ever exist without actually meaning it, because that's how ironic enjoyment works. Well, we have a lot to answer for, because not even a week after the first film dropped, a Sharknado sequel is now already in the works. Someday when what's left of humanity huddles together on post-Sharkpolcalyptic Earth to tell the story of our downfall, they will cite this moment as the beginning of the end.
