The Netflix Queue: Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus

Postby NachtcGleiskette » Sun Sep 18, 2011 11:43 pm

I'm not sure what is more unbelievable about this film. That a megalodon and giant octopus (just a giant octopus. Nothing special, never explained. Not a squid, which does come in "giant" sized. A giant octopus) become unfrozen and wage war on everyone and anyone, or that Debbie Gibson is a scientist (Marine biologist I think? Not sure if it's ever made clear.) Either way, this movie sets itself up to be completely insane, and certainly delivers.

I'm not even sure how to begin to describe this movie. So here's some stills to help:

My favorite part about this movie is how far they go with this concept. The octopus attacks an oil rig, the shark eats the Golden Gate Bridge, but that's not enough! They also attack and destroy no less than 2 airplanes. The best is the random passenger jet carrying some guy who clearly and proudly ad libs "I'm getting married tomorrow" before they get picked out of the sky (at....30,000 feet? How frikken high do these things fly again? WTF?!). I want to comment on this guy, ps. He's literally in the film for 5 seconds, but he really sets a precedent for these ad lib or improv moments that make NO sense but stick out so clearly that the amount of fucks the director gives is evident.

And the beauty of this plot is that the grand plan to kill these two is to organize them into a grand battle. I can't. I simply can't anymore. Here, just watch the jet get eaten: http://youtu.be/I16_8l0yS-g

That all being said, WATCH THIS MOVIE. I can't wait to check out Mega Shark vs Crocasaurus!

Heh, check out the link I have in the post, it's the full scene with dialogue. You can't truly appreciate it until you hear the unconvincing "Holy Shit!"

Ah drat, missed that you had all ready linked it but yes, that might be my favourite scene in a cracktastic sci-fi channel movie of all time. I've found it's oddly applicable to outside conversations as well.

I will agree the scene is almost better out of context than it is in. But considering there is almost no context to the scene, it is amazing no matter how you see it.

My buddy Bobby Ray <3's this movie. He has been telling me of it for months now.

This is a whole series apparently and he is intrigued and wishes to get them all.

Your friend has great taste. Or horrible taste. Either way he's my kind of people.

Ps, I wanna comment on the ridiculous romance between Debbie Gibson and the Japanese guy, and also angry Lorenzo Lamas.

And someone making this movie has a sense of humor, as evidenced by the fact that the octopus showdown happened in Japan. Hentai!
