5 MINUTE MOVIE GUY

As you probably know by now if you’ve been reading my reviews, I genuinely hated watching 47 Meters Down: Uncaged. For me, it was a terrible and torturous experience. There are so many issues I have with the movie, but there’s one problem in particular that I decided to leave out of my review to talk about here in greater detail. It’s something that bothers me that is actually prevalent in many shark movies. Too many movies make sharks out to be relentless, monstrous, and murderous killing machines. Not only is this scientifically inaccurate, but it’s an unfair depiction that’s manufactured solely for the sake of cheap scares.

Jaws2 Jaws: The Revenge (1987)

Yes, of course I understand that these are just movies, and that making sharks into monsters is used as a means to heighten fear and intensity, but I feel like most of the time it’s taken to…

The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time (2018) #SharkWeak2 Review

So it’s come to this: The Last Sharknado. Can I get that in writing? Me and the Sharknado films have had quite the trajectory. At first I was like: ‘this is a joke’. Then I was like, ‘No, seriously, is this a joke?’ And then I was like ‘okay, that was actually pretty funny’ followed … Continue reading The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time (2018) #SharkWeak2 Review

That Was The #SharkWeak That Was

Hello cupfishcakes! 😃🦈 It’s the UK premiere of “Sharknado 5: Global Swarming” tonight on SyFy UK (9:00pm if you’re wondering) and we’ve had a lot of fun over the past seven days here at What The Craggus Saw with Shark Weak but amidst all the man-eating monstrous nonsense, there’s a lot of things these presumably … Continue reading That Was The #SharkWeak That Was

Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens (2016) Review

Okay. Enough already. This one-joke franchise has more than outstayed its welcome and this flabby, facile and unfocussed fourth outing should (but won’t) mark the end of it. From the tediously laboured “Star Wars”-themed opening, the whole thing feels tired and dated. The pre-credits sequence set in Vegas immediately underlines the cheapness of the whole … Continue reading Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens (2016) Review

Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (2015) Review

Like a scab you just can’t help picking at, the so-bad-you-just-can’t-look-away franchise drops its third instalment with an admirable, if ill-deserved swagger; a selachian mic-drop of ludicrous proportions. When Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) goes to Washington DC to collect the highest civilian honour from the President of the United States, the last thing he expects … Continue reading Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (2015) Review

Sharknado 2: The Second One (2014) Review

Sequels, eh? Always got to go bigger and outdo the one before. Of course, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. But what if it’s totally, embarrassingly inept, shouldn’t you try and fix it just a tiny little bit? Not if you’re the makers of “Sharknado 2: The Second One”. No, siree. Instead, they demonstrate … Continue reading Sharknado 2: The Second One (2014) Review

Sharknado (2013) “Review”

Having finally got round to watching it the day after the UK TV Première (I missed it because I was out watching "Only God Forgives" and we know how that turned out), I wasn't going to review it. After all, what more was there to be said that wasn't tweeted when it debuted on American TV? … Continue reading Sharknado (2013) “Review”
