Here is the end of my Movies to Watch on a Rainy Afternoon marathon. A few weeks ago director and actor Addison Binek sent over three collections of his web series Movies to Watch on a Rainy Afternoon. The first was The Cannibals and Zombies Collection. This was a lot of fun for me because I had seen almost all of the films that he riffed.
The other two collections were shark movies. I’m not much on shark flicks but I was still open to checking them out. The first volume was a decent watch and I paced myself before spinning the second volume. I didn’t want to binge on these because this is a show that I can’t watch for hours on end. However, I put a day in between my viewing of Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. I want to thank Addison for sending this one over.
**Spoiler Alert** This collection, once again, follows Addison as he watches and pokes fun at some seriously crappy shark films. **Spoiler Alert**
I wish I was as passionate about something as Addison is about horrible movies. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely fucking love watching cheesy, campy, and poor quality films but Addison has made it is life goal to watch, riff, and make these types of films. Movies to Watch on a Rainy Afternoon is a fun watch if you are in the mood for it and his films are some of my favorites in my collection. Shark Movies Vol. 2 was a solid enough watch but I once again feel like I’m missing out on some of the jokes because I had not seen the films he is riffing.
The acting in this one is decent enough. Addison delivers his jokes, has fun in front of the camera, and really gets into his episode. He goes all in and does a fantastic job. You can really see where his heart is in each episode. The writing for this one is just like the others. His sense of humor finds its mark and I always have a few laughs when he riffs a film. However, like I said earlier, I think these jokes would have been a little more enjoyable if I was a little more familiar with the films.
Finally, the editing is rather crude and looks like it’s done on the fly but it’s still enjoyable. It doesn’t take away from the overall show and you still get the point. Overall, Shark Movies Vol. 2 is another fun watch. If you are into riffing horrible films then this is one I would recommend if you’ve never seen it before.
