I debated where I should follow up on the bad movie trend after The Room and in my quest to find the worst of the worst movies one name keeps popping back up, one company that made a name for itself trying to cash in with cheap rip-offs of Blockbusters. The Asylum.
Whilst they normally limit their activity to confusing fans by releasing movies such as Transmorphers, Alien VS Hunter or classics like Bram Stokers Dracula's Curse. The Asylum has since moved into making original productions, whether this is for better or worse is really up for debate. Mega Shark Vs Giant Octopus has reached a large amount of popularity based on it's simple silliness, following a very set monster movie plot line the silliness is unfortunately seriously hampered. This movie is not as enjoyable as the Room, the acting is not by any measure good but for the most part tolerable and I can't really criticize the writing too much, the dialogue is cliched but never to an amusing level and even competent at times. That said it is difficult to imagine that the screenwriter had to sit down and write 'then the mega shark leapt thirty thousand feet into the air and ate a 747 jet'.
This movie really doesn't have a great re-watch value, The Room I was able to watch many times over, this however I struggled to get through once. Not because it was too bad such as Birdemic or anything but rather because it was just bad. It is worth a watch and certainly would be better seeing along in a group... preferably with alcohol.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
