Episode 6 – Shark Movies

In episode 6 of the CTGY podcast, Rich and Kelly are going to need a bigger boat as they sink their teeth into the best and the worst of shark movies.

Also in this week’s episode Rich finally gets involved with (a lot of) news and discussions of the 2016 E3 event come up. Oh, and there are a lot of really bad shark related jokes by Kelly.

Films up for discussion this week include Jaws (obviously), Open Water, The Reef, Shark Night 3D, Bait 3D, Hammerhead aka Shark Man, Lucio Fulci’s Zombi 2/Zombie Flesh Eaters, Megalodon vs Giant Octopus, Shark Attack 3 and the 1966 Batman movie.

  1. The big takeaway I got out of this episode is that there’s actually some good shark movies rather than one great one (Jaws), one good one (Open Water), and the rest being awful. Prior to the podcast, I hadn’t watched The Reef or Bait 3D. To various extents, both ended up delivering.

    The Reef hardly brings anything new to the shark sub-genre. Beat by beat, it’s exactly like 99% of all other shark movies. Yet, this very procedural shark film kept things interesting, had characters that I didn’t dislike, and even made me jump a couple of times. There was the clear issue of adding in the character of Warren and then not bothering to give him a proper conclusion other than the little end credits title card. In hindsight, it would have been better to just remove Warren completely from the film. It would not have changed the movie at all had Warren not been a part of it. Rating: 7/10

    Bait 3D was such an unusual movie. On the surface, it’s just another truly dreadful made for cable movie that’s only appeal is for those who enjoy movies so bad and cheesy that it’s fun. It starts off as just that before it somehow evolves into a movie where characters are likable, there’s some emotional deaths, and you’re invested in the story. The death of Steven, the new boyfriend, should not have mattered at all. Up until his death scene, he was just in the background as the silent third party involved in the love triangle. They made Steven out to be such a hero in his death that I was heartbroken that he drowned. Even Heather and Kyle, two very one dimensional characters ends up being likable as the movie goes on. For a movie that has awful CGI, a truly melodramatic opening scene, and a basic plot that is fairly wacky, Bait 3D did some things far better than some big hits in horror. Bait 3D is hardly some classic, but it blew my expectations out of the water. Rating 6.5/10
