“The Reef” is a shark movie, one that largely revolves around people treading water miles from any boat or safe harbor. Sound familiar? Based on premise alone the comparison to “Open Water” is inevitable. Based on the fact that there is a shark in the movie I am professionally obligated to use the word “Jaws” at least once during this review. Shark movies don’t need to be fancied up to register with most of us. Everything they expose in us is deeply primal and rooted in the unknown. For these reasons using a large carnivorous fish as the prime mover in a horror movie seems like an easy get.
Jon Favreau says his new film "Cowboys and Aliens" actually has some horror tossed in there despite the trailers not really showing much to make you believe this. He then made a bunch of "Swingers" references, said "Vegas Baby, Vegas" and did some swing dancing. That guy just won't let it go.
Good news nerds! Jeri Ryan isn't dead. In fact she's landed the role of Sonya in the the upcoming "Mortal Kombat" web series, which apparently is a role she's played before. Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Cher all tried out for the role but Mrs. Ryan landed it. Congrats! I'm completely BSing about everything except her being alive and getting the part.
Here's a new poster and some stills from the upcoming Australian shark flick titled "The Reef". Honestly I think most of these are just screen grabs from shark week but still they look pretty cool. Sharks = awesome. That's math folks, look it up in a book or something.
Ever wonder what would of happened if Victor Frankenstein's journal got into the hands of the Nazis during World War 2? Sure, we all have. Well ladies and gentlemen I give you the trailer for "Frankenstein's Army" which finally answers your questions. At least I think it does, the trailer plays more like some weird German art student's final project. I think I saw a monkey painting a landscape on a horse. Weird stuff man.
In Real People News:
"I was just growing some marijuana and I was just wondering what, how much trouble you can get in for one plant." A valid question sure, but not one you want to be asking a 911 operator. Good news though, the Connecticut man now knows the answer to that question because the cops came to his house to tell him.
And here's a Detroit area man who's being brought up on charges after playing pocket pool outside of a church. On top of that this guy's toupee is insane, like taking out your wang outside of a church insane.
