seeing red pt 3 and an observation

It’s been a busy month.  How busy you ask?  Well, I’ve only recently gotten around to watching “SHARKNADO“, the SyFy channel’s movie that has caused a sensation and is in line for a sequel.  I have to say, as good as it was (and it wasn’t very good), it was no where near as good (or as bad?) as “SHARKTOPUS” from a couple of years back.   Just having Eric Roberts in a movie elevates it to a new standard.  To this day I can’t figure out why the Academy overlooked his brilliant performance.  And the story line in “SHARKTOPUS” was so much more believable than “SHARKNADO”.  Of course this is only my opinion and, as you can see,  “SHARKNADO” has a .5 star lead over “SHARKTOPUS” in the IMDB ratings.  But, hey, I call ’em as I see ’em.

      Thanks, Tina. I saw the Goobers truck at a farm market during the afternoon but I couldn’t get a good shot of it. But there it was at Cruise Nite in all it’s glory.

    Well, don’t tell me too much about Sharknado, because I’ve not seen it yet! 😉 I do love that first shot. Great composition, Ken, with the plane taking flight.

    Well Ken, I had to check those links you provided as it all seemed so unbelievable in your blog. A joke. Little did I know – movies to love and hate and to love to hate.

    The car photos on the other hand are wonderful. I too am a fan of the first one, and the other hood ornament shot.

    Goober of course took me back to my childhood TV watching. What I did not know was that Goober is a word for a nut or peanut, and originates from the West African Kongo language – Nguba meaning peanut. The things I learn by following your blog.

    Goober Pyle nor his cousin Gomer would stand a chance against a Sharktopus. Times have changed.

      Thanks, ehpem. If anyone is looking for a blog researcher, I will recommend you first.
      I’m a big movie fan and I love to watch all kinds, but even I have standards. There has been at least one occasion when a truly bad movie slips in to my view. Sometimes, even if I know a film is bad, I’ll try to find some redeeming quality about it.

        Yeah, I know what you mean. Like, the boom operator held the microphone just right at 14:13 of the Scene Two so that it did not show, for a change. Might not redeem the movie, but …
