Rating: Not Rated Stars: Katrina Bowden, Aaron Jakubenko, Kimie Tsukakoshi, Tim Kano, Te Kohe Tuhaka Writer: Michael Boughen Director: Martin Wilson Distributor: RLJE Films Release Date: July 16, 2021 GREAT WHITE is set off the coast of Australia, which is known to be a gathering spot for the titular sharks. It’s certainly a place with lovely forests and beaches, as well as gorgeous seascapes. At the start, we see a small boat moored within swimming distance of the shore. Gentle reggae music is playing. The deck has bathing suits drying on the clothesline, empty bottles and, uh-oh, a fraying rope. […]Read On »

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Claire Holt, Mandy Moore, Matthew Modine Writers: Johannes Roberts & Ernest Riera Director: Johannes Roberts Distributor: Dimension Films/Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures Release Date: June 16, 2017  The original JAWS is rightly a classic, but since then audiences have learned to be wary of shark movies. SHARKNADO gonzo parody aside, they can be a cheesy bunch, with 2004’s destabilizing OPEN WATER a rare exception. Well, surprise. 47 METERS DOWN has most of the makings of a first-rate horror movie: a plausible set-up, multiple sources of jeopardy, an environment that’s terrifying all on its own, ace special effects and […]Read On »

Stars: Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw, Richard Dreyfuss, Lorraine Gray, Murray Hamilton Writers: Peter Benchley, Carl Gottlieb based on the novel by Peter Benchley Director: Steven Spielberg Suggested Retail Price: $29.98 For those of us who have lived through the VHS incarnations, the DVD versions and the super special remastered DVD versions of our favorite movies, the excitement level for new format re-releases does feel anti-climactic at times. That said, there are still a few movies that get the kid-at-heart excited especially when it comes to a Blu-ray release. The STAR WARS saga, the INDIANA JONES films and now, well JAWS. […]Read On »
