WARNING! Contains more spoilers than Amnity has floats!
BEYOND THE SHARKS ARE SPOILERS YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
When a killer shark unleashes chaos on a beach community, it’s up to a local sheriff, a marine biologist, and an old seafarer to hunt the beast down.
Anyone stupid enough to go skinny dipping after dark deserves to be eaten by a shark.
Two notes and you have a villain, John Williams is an absolute genius of film scores.
The mayor reminds me of Donald Trump so much. Profits above public safety.
When the punctured yellow float washes up on shore there’s no doubting what they all saw.
Quint’s nails on the chalkboard, iconic.
A huge turning point in the production of this film was the malfunction of the model shark for a lot of the filming. This meant that they had to find a way of depicting the sharks movement without actually showing the shark. This is why they use barrels, rubber rings etc. I think the film wouldn’t have the same impact if the audience didn’t have to use their imagination to think about what is going on underneath the water. It adds a certain horror element.
I love the mayor’s anchor jack. He is a terrible man but he has style.
At least he shows some remorse after the shark gets into the “pond” and eats another victim.
I love Hooper and Quint’s relationship.
The scar comparison that becomes Quint’s haunting tale of the Indianapolis is beautiful and haunting.
This film is the first in Spielberg’s illustrious career but it is still one of his best, if not the best. The young director crafted a masterpiece when he made this.
When Quint asks Hooper for help, it’s a lovely moment showing respect.
I love the cage! Even after seeing this film a lot I would still love to go in one!
Armed with a pistol and an oxygen tank in the shark’s mouth to aim at Brody says the wonderful line “Smile, you son of a bitch.”
Deep Blue Sea (1999)
Searching for a cure to Alzheimer’s disease, a group of scientists on an isolated research facility become the prey, as a trio of intelligent sharks fight back.
Even when I originally saw this film at 10ish I didn’t think a shark would confuse red wine for blood.
I have witnessed Alzheimer’s first hand, awful disease.
A floppy disc drive, nostalgia.
Speaking of nostalgia, LL Cool J!
When the sharks swim backwards after recognising the gun they should have run! Oh the hubris of man!
I would have put a belt tourniquet on his arm rather than risk evacuation in a serious storm. So much could have been avoided with a decent first aider 😂
“She screwed with the sharks and now the sharks are screwing with us.”
I love when Samuel L Jackson makes his speech then completely unexpectedly gets eaten by a shark!
I always remember Scoggs leg kicking.
I have to hand it to the Doc, she took a shark out by electrocution, nice!
If I was LL Cool J I would have put wrestling with a shark in my contract.
I adore this film. I never get bored of it. It’s one of those films I can watch over and over.
The Meg (2018)
A group of scientists exploring the Mariana Trench encounter the largest marine predator that has ever existed – the Megalodon.
I went to the cinema to see this with my darling Millie
If I was a billionaire, an underwater research lab is exactly the kind of thing I would invest in.
I am SUPER jealous of the little girls light up shoes
That is a brave little girl, not screaming when she saw the “monster” only when it bit the glass
RUBY ROSE ❤️
I love that the director uses the Meg to serve justice to poachers and sends an important environmental message
FINDING NEMO REFERENCE
Even seeing the cage get swallowed doesn’t put me off wanting to do it one day
When the real Megladon pops up it’s jaw dropping moment
The billionaire is a huge ass!
Beach full of tourists + killer shark sounds familiar.
Oh the dog 😂
I want to go in one of those bubble ball things, looks so fun
The shot with all the floats, breathtaking scale
How many of them peed/pooped in the sea with fear of getting so close to getting eaten?
Ooooh right in the eyeball
Circle of life moment when the sharks swarm the Meg carcass
THE DOG IS SAFE
The Meg is slightly ridiculous and far fetched but it’s also very watchable and the effects are brilliant.
It’s a must see for any fin fan
Sharks are my absolute favourite animal. I love their power and think they are beautiful. The following films are very responsible for the way sharks are viewed, Jaws most of all. These beautiful, majestic creatures are portrayed as monsters. It’s very much a double edged sword. Without these films in popular culture sharks wouldn’t be as known to people and the interest wouldn’t be there in preserving their habitat.
