Recycling cans = good! Recycling movies = ???

jc creature 2Filmed as Princess of Mars in 2009 to ride the Avatar wave, the (infamous) Asylum repurposed their flick in 2012 as John Carter of Mars to punch fists with the big budget action adventure, John Carter.john carter

Both versions, of course, are filled with notorious cheap creature computer effects – and a lot of half naked Antonio Sabato, Jr.

Now, who said this was a bad movie???

Bad CGI Friday’s: Shark Week (2012)

While not nearly as hotly electric as her death in Kick-Ass 2, the unstoppable Yancy Butler has lent some charged pizzaz to such low budget animal-horror-oaters like Rage of the Yeti, Wolvesbayne and the Lake Placid series, of late.

shark week 1Unfortunately, as the demented mistress of a madman who likes “to watch”, she is the most exciting thing about 2012’s Shark Week, The Asylum’s quick attempt to cash in on Shark Night’s mainstream release. Much of this aquanoid terror is spent watching a group of folks wander around an island (often not even in the water) trying to outwit a variety of murderous fin sporting creatures.

Naturally, the numerous attacks are created using bad CGI effects – often distorted by shaking camera work in a seeming attempt to overcome their obvious weaknesses.shark week 3

Granted, with a super ridiculous shark-on-a-spear effect and a cat-fight between Butler’s Elena and Erin Coker’s victorious journalist, things do escalate a bit as the film heads into its final half hour.

Besides, what else are you going to be doing with your time? Studying Sharks-speare?
