God I love Roger Corman. He directs stuff like this (with no apologies) and yet everybody in the following (incomplete) list owes him a deep debt, and most of them would be unlikely to have had careers without him as to function as a mentor ot provide them with early jobs. Cinema owes him a huge debt.

Jonathan Demme
Francis Ford Coppola
Ron Howard
John Sayles
James Cameron
Joe Dante
Martin Scorsese
Jack Nicholson
Charles Bronson
Robert De Niro

One of the best points raised in PZ's comments section was: imagine if Ed Wood had lived to see (use) CGI effects!!

This movie may unseat killer clowns from outer space. Looks very promising.

But will it be better than ... TALIBAN MONKEY WARRIORS (http://pourmecoffee.posterous.com/begun-the-taliban-monkey-wars-have-watch-the)???

(Not yet outer space-capable, but you have to wonder if this is how the Planet of the Apes will really come about.)

So I just finished watching Sharktopus.


I made sure to mark this date on my mental calendar. It was a good effort. Could have used more killing, the sharktopus seemed a bit docile at times, but he tried.

Would have been nice to see someone use martial arts on sharktopus, but nothing is perfect.
