First time views are bold
The Reef - Netflix Instant
I really had a lot of fun watching this; but then again, I have fun watching almost anything involving shark attacks so that really isn't high praise. The gist: after their boat capsizes, a foursome are stranded in the middle of the ocean. Two options; hang out on the overturned and sinking boat, or swim for land that they can't even see. All but one of them choose the latter. It's not long until a shark starts stalking them. If you liked "Open Water", it's worth a look.
Personally: 7-10 (with my shark bias)
Mega Shark vs. Crocosauras - Syfy
I admittedly didn't follow this one too closely. It was on, I needed to look at something. Hey, shark! (Oh, shhhh...I forgot, Jaleel 'Urkel' White was in it!)
Personally; 3-10 (prehistoric sharks don't get bias points)
Swamp Shark - Syfy
Sensing a theme? I really liked this one; up there with "The Reef", but a completely different kind of movie. Where "The Reef" was more of a it could happen to you! movie, this one is just an over-the-top ain't no way in hell! flick. As you could guess, a shark ends up wrecking havoc in a fresh water swamp. Kristy Swanson, as a gator-park owner, kicks ass. And Gary Sinise's daughter, Sophie, plays her younger sister. She's kinda cute!
Personally: 7-10 (more silly shark bias)
Twin Peaks - Netflix Instant
I finished watching the series today, and absolutely loved it. It makes me want to catch up on all of Lynch's work (and makes me crave a sequel; come on!) I was prepping myself to hate the way it ended, because so many people have told me how disappointed they were. Well, I'm disappointed that I only have the feature film "Fire Walk With Me" left to watch, but I loved how it ended! Not an ideal ending, but considering it was cancelled rather than allowed to run its course, I was happy.
Personally: 10/10 (there were a lot of storylines that couldn't be wrapped up, but I blame the network more than the show for that)
Super - DVD
NOT what I expected! Gorier, more violent and darker than I would have ever guessed from the little I knew about it. I almost shhhh when . Did NOT see that coming!
Personally; 9/10 (a helluva fun ride, check it out!)
