Toxic Shark 2017 4 out of 10



Toxic Shark 2017   4 out of 10

If you haven't figured it out already I'm a sucker for a bad shark movie.  I watch them out of habit searching for a So Bad it is Good movie and most often just getting bad.  The trailers are almost always better than the movies themselves and Toxic Shark is no exception.   Last year gave us Atomic Shark which features a radioactive shark off the coast of San Diego that wreck havoc.   Toxic Shark follows in its footsteps with story about a tropical singles retreat that features a shark that is not only radioactive, but also has horn like projection on it's head that spews acid at its victims.   It seems like this latest batch of shark movies no longer think sharks are scary enough on their own.  Trailer Park Shark could electrify people.  The 5 Headed Shark had 5 heads and the Toxic Shark spews acid that can turn beach goers into rabies delusional zombies.   

The best part of this film was that one of the main stars Kabby Borders spends the entire film in a bikini.  Other than that we just get another Bad Shark Movie.   Stuck on an island the greedy fitness celeb running the island of course doesn't want to close the beach (typical Jaws Scenario).   In real life the beaches would close after the first shark attack,  in the movie world it takes a full on shark assault before they tell people to stay out of the water.   Of course even when people are aware of the shark the characters find stupid ways of getting into the water like trying to fix the phone lines which the Toxic Shark has cut off so the characters can't call for help.   The characters of course try to flee in the world's smallest motor boat.   There is nothing special about Toxic Shark other than dumb characters putting themselves into dangerous situations.

 If I had to recommend a radioactive shark movie I'd go with Atomic Shark which at least had some unusual stuff happening in it that included tainted fish that cause a restaurant to explode after a TV host blows up after eating the radioactive fish.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2016 6 out of 10






Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them   2016  6 out of 10

It took me awhile to get around to watching this expansion of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter beyond the Potter books.   When the trailer came out it just didn't really excite me.  I finally watched it this weekend and I guess my original feeling about the trailer rang true.  Despite the film being filled with magic on screen the story and characters didn't feel magicial to me.   It was missing something the films based on the Harry Potter book series had.  

I was about 35 minutes into the film and was already looking at the DVD time counter to see how much longer the film was.  At this point in the film they go into the magical suitcase which is a home for a bunch of mysterious and incredible creatures.  The creatures themselves were cool and interesting --but the story had already lost my attention,   The world inside the suitcase was the most interesting part of the movie and yet it just felt like a trip the zoo.    

The plot played out like a Men in Black movie with the main character a Wizard named Newt  (played by Eddie Redmayne) getting a Muggle (Dan Fogler) involved in his adventure to gather some of the animals that had escaped from his magical suitcase. Unlike Men in Black the film lacked humor, it tried to be funny --but never really succeeded.  Two of the creatures that they try and track down include a strange platypus looking creature that steals gems and gold and a giant "Horny" Rhino that they track to the zoo. Both of the scenes were meant to be funny, but didn't make me laugh at all.   I never found myself caring about the main character which makes it hard to really get into the film. 

The plot was just dark and dull.   Despite great special effects and a nice wizard wand duel at the end of the film it just didn't take me to the magical world that the other Potter films did.  I know that this movie takes place in the Harry Potter universe --but it didn't feel the same.  It felt like a Harry Potter knock-off instead of a continuation of the Potterverse. 

I would say skip this non-Potter adventure and re watch some of the original series if you are looking for fun.
