"Titanic 2"

Our friends at The Asylum (the famed Z-movie studio responsible for such schlock masterpieces as "Transmorphers," "AVH: Alien Vs. Hunter" and dozens more) have struck again... "Titanic 2" (yes, really!) will be hitting DVD soon....

 

Trailer:

Obviously this is not a true sequel to James Cameron's "Titanic" but they're definitely banking on people being dumb enough to rent it under the mistaken impression that it will be.

 

This flick tells the tale of a replica of the Titanic (dubbed "Titanic II," thus justifying the misleading title), following the original route of the doomed liner on its 100th anniversary. Disaster will predictably strike somewhere along the way.

 

Maybe instead of hitting an iceberg, this new "Titanic" will be attacked by a Mega Shark. This *is* an Asylum movie, after all :rofl2:

Me in the theatre.......:gone:

 

:rofl2: No theatre for this epic, it's going straight to DVD just like all of the other Asylum "Mockbusters"...

 

One thing that "Titanic 2" has in its favor: one of its stars is Brooke Burns, last seen hosting the game show "Dog Eat Dog" on TV...

Agreed, for some reason her face looks quite butch in the first picture. Same problem as Angelina Jolie for me though - the mouth.

 

The idea of Titanic 2 is so ridiculous (and at the same time strangely intriguing) that it wouldn't matter who they put in it, I suspect it would have to be seen to be believed.

Blonde or brunette, she could sharpen my pencil anytime.

I watched the first half of Transmorphers a few nights ago. It was so bad I couldn't even finish watching it. If their other movies are anything like that one they are a complete waste of time.

 

I still have yet to see either of the "Transmorphers" movies but I know that due to my sick, weird, obsessive compulsive bad movie habit, I will get to 'em both eventually. Wikipedia quotes a hilarious review of that movie from the New York Times:

 

Rolf Potts of The New York Times described Transmorphers as having "no recognizable actors, no merchandising tie-ins and a garbled sound mix. Also unlike Transformers, it has cheap special effects and a subplot involving lesbians."

 

:rofl: How could I not want to see it after a recommendation like that? :lol:

 

But seriously, I've seen about a half dozen of the Asylum's films now (mostly via SyFy Channel) and tho a couple of 'em have been outright suck (i.e. "AVH: Alien Vs. Hunter"), a couple have actually approached something resembling filmmaking competence (i.e. "Mega Piranha"). They're the kind of bad-on-purpose "B" movies you watch on TV at 1 in the morning, when your expectations are naturally lowered. :lol:

Nah, I'm a complete lech ... just a really picky one! :D

 

The first (brunette) pic of this girl is really unattractive imo.

This masterwork is making its SyFy Channel premiere tonight at 9. I guess this is their idea of counter-programming against the Super Bowl. :blink:

I watched... and it was awesomely bad. :lol:

 

The Asylum's films are notorious for their cheap CGI effects, which actually kinda work when they're in a campy-on-purpose film like "Mega Python vs. Gatoroid," but when they're used in a supposedly 'straight' action/disaster film, it only heightens the hilarity.

 

All of the scenes that were supposedly inside the "ship" were obviously filmed in a fancy hotel. I know I saw buildings in the distance out the windows during several scenes where the ship was supposed to be out at sea. At one point the characters trying to escape were running through access tunnels with concrete walls, stairs and floors. On a ship? No wonder it sank. :rofl:

 

Oh, and for a ship that was supposedly sinking rapidly, you saw very little water coming in aside from a few sprinkles dripping from the ceiling. I guess the Asylum couldn't afford to really flood the place cuz then they'd have to pay for the clean-up.

 

On the other hand, "Titanic II" was shorter than Cameron's film, and there was no annoying love ballad sung by Celine Dion. Thank God.

 

I was somewhat disappointed that the Titanic II wasn't attacked by a Mega Shark or a Gatoroid, which would've made sense since this was an Asylum film. Maybe they're saving that for a sequel ("Titanic III: The Next Generation?")

Thats cause it was filmed in a fancy hotel...AND a ship! They used the Queen Mary in Long Island, CA...saw this a few months ago and it's just dire, I tried to get through the whole thing but I just couldn't :( x

Yeah, the Queen Mary was used for the "long shots" of the ship @ the dock. Then when it left port and headed out to sea, they used a CGI creation that didn't even look the same as the Queen Mary :rofl2:

 

Useless information: the film was written by, directed by, and stars Shane Van Dyke (he plays the rich-ass dude whose company owns the Titanic II)... who happens to be the grandson of showbiz legend Dick Van Dyke. Obviously Grampa's talent didn't trickle down to this guy. :lol:

Bend her over doggy style so you can't see her face, tape a copy of her bank balance to her back, and you'd be able to finish the job, right? :P

Back in the day before either you or I were alive.... :lol:
