Phil’s Top 5… Shark Movies (Updated Inc. The Meg!)

Phil’s Top 5… Shark Movies (Updated Inc. The Meg!)

Other Cr*p Top 5

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: Shark Movies

 

Close but no cigar: Jaws 2, Sharknado 2, Megashark Vs Giant Octopus, The Reef, Deep Blue Sea

 

 

5 – Open Water
Open Water is a cracking low budget shark movie that’s full of tension and tight direction. Another simple idea with a finned menace at it’s heart

 

4 – Sharknado
It’s a Shark.  Tornado.  A Sharknado.  Yup it’s cheap, yup it’s silly but man it’s so much fun!

 

3 – The Meg
Its dumb, OTT and pretty much everything you’d expect from a Jason Statham vs A giant shark movie. Yup.


2 – The Shallows
With one lead, a shark and a very simple premise The Shallows makes you not want to go back in the water all over again.


1 – Jaws
Was there EVER going to be another one? Jaws is a near flawless Shark movie. Even if the plastic Shark Bruce didn’t want to play ball..

Blog: Lavalantula – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Look its not going to win any Golden Globes BUT Lavalantula is about as fun as you are going to get from a SyFy movie not called Sharknado.  It’s dumb, funny and never takes itself too seriously whilst also as an added bonus giving us a cast that includes Podcast & Radio stalwart Ralph Garmin and most of the surviving cast of Police Academy.  Like I said this will win few awards but if this is your type of film then there’s enjoyment to be had!

Best Bit: Police Academy Reunion

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream

If You Liked this Try: Sharknado, Sharknado 2, Sharknado 3

IMDB Rating:
