Harryhausen and Sharknado

Thursday night is going to be packed with movie greatness and I wanted to make sure everyone knew what was coming so they could prepare in advance.  Turner Class Movies is having a memorial tribute night to Ray Harryhausen.  Harryhausen was a master at stop motion animation and they have some of his best work lined up. 

At 8pm it all starts with the classic Jason and the Argonauts.  You’ve seen the skeletons with their shields and their swords, now see the whole thing.  Seriously, I love those guys.  At 10pm is The Golden Voyage of Sinbad.  Followed at 12am by Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger.  If you’re up for staying up really late or are setting up your DVR Earth Vs. the Flying Saucers is on at 2am and The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms is on at 3:30am. 

If you want something more modern there is Syfy’s premiere of Sharknado.  If you think Sharknado sounds like a tornado full of sharks you’d be right.  Why is there a tornado full of sharks?  Because it’s awesome.  Because it’s cheesy as all hell.  Because it’s a Syfy original movie.  I can’t resist a bad shark movie, it’s a weakness of mine.  I don’t know who is coming up with movie ideas over at Syfy but I hope they never stop.

  1. Caught Jason and the Argonauts tonights. Not a bad flick and the special effects were good for the time. My favorite was the walking statue. I will admit to laughing when the skeletons were walking really slowly then suddenly let out a war cry and attacked.
