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.
