The Meg movie review

The Meg
Directed by Jon Turteltaub
Screenplay by Dean Georgaris, Jon Hoeber, Erich Hoeber
Starring Jason Statham, Li Bingbing, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Winston Chao, Cliff Curtis, Shuya Sophia Kai
Warner Bros. Pictures
Release date: August 10, 2018

The Meg was fine. It’s not awful in anyway. But it’s also not spectacular in any way. That is the real issue with the latest summer blockbuster shark movie. Any shark movie is going to inevitably compared to Jaws and that is not fair. Jaws was perfect, a classic of unparalleled status. Most of the immediate post-Jaws shark movies were rip-offs. Some have towed the line and were homages. Since Shark Week and the advent of cable TV, specifically the SYFY channel, shark movies essentially take two forms: thrillers that aim to provoke reactions of fear a la The Shallows (2016) and The Reef (2010), and the much more common go for absurdity and silliness like Deep Blue Sea (1999) or the any of the thousands of “shark movies” on cable such as the Sharknado franchise and Sharktopus. The Meg falls in the one place you don’t want to be… the middle.

The Meg

Summers may be full of those superhero movies and some fun comedies, but this one may belong to The Meg. The film, starring Jason Statham, sees the actor going up against a giant shark. No, literally. It’s a giant shark.

The shark is the once thought to be extinct megalodon, and it is so big that not only can it tip over a ship with ease, but it can swallow people whole. Check out the full trailer below.

MEG: A Novel of Deep Terror

The long in development giant shark movie MEG has found its female lead. It’s being reported that Sirens and The Vow star Jessica McNamee has joined the cast of the Warner Brothers title, which is based on the Steve Alten book MEG: A Novel of Deep Terror.

McNamee joins Jason Statham, who’s set for the male lead, and Fan Bingbing on the cast. The movie was set to be helmed by Hostel and Cabin Fever director Eli Roth, but he departed the project a handful of months ago. Roth left due to budget concerns after Warner Bros., coming off a rough year at the box office, wanted to pull things back a bit on the expected $100 million MEG budget. Now the movie will be made by Cool Runnings, National Treasure and its sequel, and The Sorcerer’s Apprentice director Jon Turteltaub.

Disneys The Sorcerers Apprentice movie posterThe Sorcerer’s Apprentice
Directed by Jon Turteltaub
Starring Jay Baruchel, Nicolas Cage, Alfred Molina, Teresa Palmer, Toby Kebbell
Release date: July 14, 2010

I’ll save you the suspense. Despite the fact that I don’t find it a particularly good movie, I liked The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. Don’t mistake that for indecision. I think people’s ability to compartmentalize their taste in movies has a direct impact on their enjoyment of movies as entertainment. Saying a movie is bad isn’t the same as saying you didn’t like it. For as evolved as a lot of our taste in movies have become, there are still those inexplicable few that slip through that we like despite every inclination not to. I grew up watching some terrible movies and liked quite a lot of them. Some I still do. I know they are bad, but there is more that goes into liking a movie than knowing it was well made. Nostalgia, perspective, fandom, all of these things can also shape our experience outside of the quality of the film itself. We just like what we like and sometimes there is just no explanation for having a good time watching a movie. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is that experience for me.

Disney’s ‘The Sorcerer’s Apprentice’ Has A Trailer

The Sorcerer's Apprentice

Walt Disney Pictures has been busy today, releasing a poster and image from Tron: Legacy, and also unveiling this brand new trailer for The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. Not too much was known about the project aside from the fact that it was directed by Jon Turteltaub and starred Nicolas Cage and Jay Baruchel as a Sorcerer and his confused and reluctant apprentice.

Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, you can see the effects shining in this trailer. Actually, if you had to compare this with Bruckheimer’s other recent blockbuster trailer for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, it would be hard not to say that The Sorcerer’s Apprentice looks like it has a lot more promise and some really fun special effects. Cage does a lot of questionable movies these days, but every once in a while, he’s in one that ends up being a pretty good time. Some would say National Treasure was one, we know Kick-Ass will be one, and this now has a chance to become one.

Click on over to the other side to read a synopsis and to watch the entertaining trailer for The Sorcerer’s Apprentice! Head over to Apple for the HD version.
