    Dogma

    8/10

    Probably Kevin Smith's best movie.

    Sure there are cringey, eye-rolling, hokey cliche moments galore. Several gay jokes are very much of its time. Some clunky exposition doesn't help. But with all that said.. the script is fire, the story is clever, and there are some great acting turns (Affleck & Damon, Jay Mewes playing his patented character to perfection, a solid George Carlin cameo and a PRISTINE Alan Rickman performance).

    All in all it holds up. Shows you can make an end-of-the-world movie on a budget. The whole thing (like many of Smith's films) feels like a graphic novel adaptation without actually being based on one.

    It's not, it's a PG

    Edit: Ah, I see what you're saying. My 9 year old thought the start was a bit violent but only in a cartoony way. All kids are different so I guess that was their train of thought.

    Jaws 2 - Somehow, I managed to watch the Jaws series in reverse order as a kid, starting with 4 and eventually working back to the original, so I have a real soft spot for this as after 3D it seemed like a work of genius.

    It's not, of course, but as cash in sequels go, it's by no means the worst. Schieder is great, as always, and the burn until all hell breaks loose is fairly well done. The focus on the kids wasn't the best idea as it feels like a slasher movie but they aren't the worst.

    Overall.... it's alright. It's one of those films that shouldn't exist as the original is perfect and it did open the door to even shittier sequels but it still kinda holds up.

    6/10

    I believe the film is out in parts of Asia and Eastern Europe.

    I quite like Jaws 2. It's not the timeless classic of the original and does feel very 70s but it's decent enough.

    Yeah I quite like Jaws 2. Although that's probably due to the first one giving me such a hard on for great white sharks.

    I also watched the meg which is the literal antithesis. Absolute shit.

    And I don't know how Ruby Rose keeps getting work (I do). Dwight was ok, though.

    Yeah I watched it recently, it's fucking awful. 47 Metres Down just came on Netflix recently and isn't bad if you're on some sort of shark binge.

    If you want a good shark movie - The Reef. Budget but great.

    Jaws 2 benefits from the Scheider, even if he is on contractually bound autopilot, Joe Alves and the Amity/Martha's Vineyard ambience (although the bits filmed in Florida don't really match). It's got a really good John Williams score too, better than it deserves.

    It's a decent sequel, it's got some good moments.

    I'd like to see a shark film where the shark turns out to be the good guy.

    The Hangover (on Netflix)


    For the first time. That was fun, and I admit I wasn't so sure at the beginning.

    It was a sort of sequel to Black Water, which the same director did first, and is imo the better film. It benefits from being incredibly stripped back and basic, and is one of the most uncomfortable unsettling films I've ever seen.

    Is Black Water the crocodile one? Yeah it was pretty good. Really love The Reef though. Again though, massive hard on for great whites.

    Oh wait, I was confusing Black Water with Open Water, although Black Water is also decent. But yeah, Open Water is the tensest shark films I've ever seen, and possibly the tensest film I've seen full stop.

    The Shallows is a great shark film.

    Just looking at IMDb. I didn't realise Renny Harlin directed deep blue sea. What a load of crap that was.

    And then he went onto mass critical acclaim with the exorcist prequel....

    The killer shark genre is much bigger than you think.

    The Meg is a massive missed opportunity.

    The novel was pulpy as hell, and in the right hands could have a been a riotous horror comedy.

    Instead, we got a bland family movie with no threat or tension that was way more interested in acting as the unofficial promoter of chinese tourism. You could tell it was hacked to pieces in the edit, and little wonder the Stath was so keen to distance himself from the final version.

    It was just so believable and real. It was only an hour and 20 mins or something but felt much longer, such was the tension.

    Honestly, I kind of hated it. It's a very good piece of filmmaking, but it's too real. Films like Jaws or whatever are fun because they distance themselves enough from reality. Open Water is like watching a YouTube beheading video.

    Dark Tide, the Halle Berry movie set off Cape Town, was a half decent shark movie though reviewed badly.

    I saw Open water whilst hung over and angst ridden. I was absolutely devastated by it.

    I remember buying open water on DVD when it came it (about 20 fucking quid)
    I found it a bit boring but I didn't like Blair witch either, they're sort of the same genre right?

    Huh. I quite enjoyed deep blue sea. Pretty standard monster movie type nonsense, very formulaic, but thought it was good fun. A romp, if you may.
