Sharknado 2

Sharknado 2

Yes. I’m in it.

But that’s all I can tell you at the moment!

Stay tuned for the real blog post, which will be out just after “Sharknado 2” airs July 31st on SyFy channel…


Film review by Smiley O’Really:

Oh, the glory that is *Sharknado 2: The Second One*! You know, it’s not every day you get a film that so perfectly captures the zeitgeist of absurdity like this cinematic gem. And nestled among the swirling vortex of sharks and the flamboyant chaos, there’s our very own D.C. Douglas as Bud, giving us a masterclass in how to handle airborne sharks with a mix of sarcasm and a no-nonsense demeanor that can only be described as delightfully cheeky.

Now, let’s get into the meat—or should I say shark meat?—of this film. *Sharknado 2*, directed by Anthony C. Ferrante, is a sequel that truly outdoes its predecessor, and in the realm of sequels, that’s saying something. This time, our beloved shark-whirling tornadoes hit the Big Apple. That’s right, New York City! The city that never sleeps… because now it’s busy running from sharks.

As for the plot? It’s as gloriously ridiculous as you might imagine. Fin Shepard (played by Ian Ziering, who somehow keeps a straight face through this), and his ex-wife April (Tara Reid, armed with a hand saw and not afraid to use it) are on a flight to NYC when they encounter the first sharknado. Yes, folks, these sharks fly first class! Upon landing, Fin realizes it’s up to him to save the city from the impending shark doom. The movie takes “jumping the shark” quite literally as our heroes battle shark-infested floods through the subway, across Mets Stadium, and even atop the Empire State Building.

Joining our dynamic duo is a charming cast including Vivica A. Fox as Skye, Mark McGrath as Martin, and the one and only Judd Hirsch as a taxi driver (because what’s a New York disaster movie without a quintessential New York cabbie?). And let’s not forget our man D.C. Douglas, whose portrayal of Bud adds that extra sprinkle of charisma to the chaotic mix. Bud’s presence is like a fine wine in a sea of… well, shark-infested waters. He brings humor and a bit of gravitas to the swirling madness, anchoring the absurdity with just the right touch of comedic grounding.

Culturally, *Sharknado 2* did for sharks what *Jaws* did for beach vacations: it made everyone side-eye the skies during bad weather. The film became a social media sensation. Twitter storms raged as fiercely as the on-screen tornadoes, with live tweets, memes, and GIFs spreading faster than the sharknado itself. It even spawned viewing parties, complete with themed snacks (gummy sharks, anyone?) and drinking games (drink every time someone says “shark!”—actually, maybe don’t; it’s a lot).

In its own bizarre way, *Sharknado 2* elevated the B-movie into a shared cultural moment, a communal embrace of the ridiculous, where the sillier, the better. The film doesn’t just lean into its absurd premise—it backflips into it with a chainsaw in hand. It’s a testament to the power of low-budget films to capture the public’s imagination and turn a night at home into an event.

In summary, *Sharknado 2* isn’t just a movie; it’s an experience, a phenomenon. And D.C. Douglas, our stalwart Bud, isn’t just a character; he’s a beacon of sanity in a world gone mad with shark storms. So grab your popcorn and your chainsaw, because in the world of *Sharknado 2*, it’s eat or be eaten—and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
