All I can say is this movie will NOT be 'Jaw-some' in any way. 

Seriously, has Hollywood forgotten that all important rule about horror movies: Sluts plus robbing the local blood bank (over-using blood and gore) does NOT equal good quality horror...

Actually, FRR I don't think there's going to be mutch blood and gore because it's rated PG-13. Another rule of thumb: If your horror movie is PG-13 and it's not about supernatural horror, it's gonna suck...big time!

The official title for this movie may be "Shark Night 3-D," but as far as I'm concerned, it's real title (and only selling point) is "Sara Paxton & Katherine McPhee in Bikinis for 90 Minutes."

Good point, SchumacherH8ter -- I forgot to mention that when it comes to horror, never lock it in the same room with a PG-13 certificate (unless provoking fear is it's only goal)...

1) Can sharks scientifically thrive in a land-locked mizuumi (fresh water lake?).

2) How is it a good idea to make a movie about sharks hunting down and eating squibesses* in a lake?
 
3) If the reviews turn out to be below 10%, who would be the best actor or actress to nominate? Worst Remake or Rip-off is way overcrowded anyway. Come to think of it, this should probably be nominated as a last resort.
 
*"Squib" is defined as a wizard who can't use magic. In medieval fiction and role-playing, magic takes a lot of intelligence and mental power to use, and most people who can perform magic have small or slim builds. These women appear to be built like sorceresses (if they even have that much tone), but they don't seem near intelligent enough to use magic, so they're squibesses and spearmen with low intelligence.
 
Only complaint though, was that the advertisements blocked some of your text, so I had to copy and paste your opinion onto a word document.

When it comes to movies with C and D-listers, unless there's a bad performance that exceeds the standard of the pretty teen that's in a movie for God knows what reason, and it's truly terrible, I think this will only stay in the Worst Ensemble category. Let's face it, a lot of the voters put their eyes on stars, specially the ones that have fallen.

If that's true, why hasn't that category been split off yet?Each year, we get at least 10 bad remakes and 10 bad sequels. And this year we've been surprised a lot but I still think the spaces for TWO categories can be filled.

I was looking at RottenTomatoes.com and...guess what?  This was NOT SCREENED FOR CRITICS.  Well, no surprise there. They didn't even do the day-before screenings.  

Also, Shark Night 3D has company.  You may have to look into Apollo 18 as well.  Yep, two movies, zero reviews at this point.

Are you sure this is September?  From a movie standpoint, it still feels like August.

Shark Night 3-D is like a cheap attempt to rip off the success of Piranha 3-D, minus the boobs and the R rating (and it will probably be released in an "unrated" version on DVD in a couple of months.)

No, I got that. I had asked what did choosing between those 2 movies had to do with anything? I don't really remember if that week a year ago there were plans to make PIRANHA 3-D the "Bonus Worst of the Weak" or not, but my initial question simply was if the critical success of that movie is why this one got an official Forum so late?  


RESPONSE from head RAZZberry: Simple answer (as suggested in my reply above)... NO.

Why am I not thouroughly surprised by MWG's "wanting see this for entertainment purposes"?!? Shocked And when you do see it, you will then tell us how misunderstanding we all are, and how we should appreciate the fact that it is actually a homage to the original Jaws, and we should respect its intent.

Reading from the "early" reviews, it seems that Shark Night 3D tries to be more like the original Jaws than like last year's Piranha 3-D, which is both fortunate and unfortunate, I suppose.

So in the end, yet another low level producer tries to wring a quick buck (or in this case a quick can of tuna?) from another hard-working creative person's labor of love. Though in Spielberg’s case, making JAWS was apparently more like nightmare!

This looks to be typical Hollywood fare in the horror genre these days: These kind of movies come out because they usually sell, and they probably aren't that expensive to make. 

But they are also highly un-original, which sucks. It's a pity, 'cause I was hoping for more from this one.

I was afraid for a second we would get this wrong. Now it's been released, and the reviews at Rotten T are at 24% (top of the "terrible" range). Apollo 18 has only 1 percent more than this. Metacritic has a contrast: Shark Night 3D is down to 23% at Metacritic (Never thought Metacritic would rate anything lower than Rotten T did again, did you?), and Apollo 18 is at... that's right!: 18% at Metacritic. That's below their 20% threshold for "overwhelming dislike or extreme disgust" (!) Any chance that Apollo 18 could be a Bonus Worst New Movie for Spt. 2?

Moviewizguy: You actually haven't heard of any other shark movies except for the Jaws series? 
Then you must have been living under a rock with your fingers in your ears for the past 30+ years. Look up "shark" at IMDb.com and you should find a list about a mile long. It's just that "Jaws" is the only series that is widely known by the mainstream public, since it's a major studio franchise, and not some low budget indie horror flick like most others are.

OK, saying that I've been living under a rock AND then admitting that most shark films are indie horror flicks (meaning the majority of the public wouldn't know of them) is a contradiction. However, looking at the list on Wikipedia, I recognized Open Water (which was excellent) and Deep Blue Sea (which was OK).

Shows you how bad they all are if you can't even remember the names of the blatant generic rip offs...however there is one that still comes pretty close that is a memorable rip off (This to was based on an original Novel as well), except instead of a shark its about a revenge seeking whale called http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orca_%28movie%29 - Orca . It stared the late Richard Harris of Camelot (And yes Harry Potter) and Charlotte Rampling of Logan's Run. Universals competitor Paramount decided to churn this out when the original Jaws turned out to be such a whopping success.
 
At the end of the movie the audience was cheering the whale on to just end the movie so you could leave the Theater and not feel you wasted $5.00 of your parents hard earned money.Clap
 
If I also remember correctly I believe this movie was also in John's Book of the worst 100 movies of all time, If it wasn't it should have been...I'll verify tomorrow when I get some sleep.Sleepy  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Sorry to say, ORCA actually wasn't in http://www.amazon.com/Official-Razzie-Movie-Guide-Hollywoods/dp/0446693340/ref=pd_ybh_1?pf_rd_p=280800601&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_t=1501&pf_rd_i=ybh&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=03RCQ44VHNW70Y2XTG75 - http://www.amazon.com/Official-Razzie-Movie-Guide-Hollywoods/dp/0446693340/ref=pd_ybh_1?pf_rd_p=280800601&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_t=1501&pf_rd_i=ybh&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=03RCQ44VHNW70Y2XTG75 - , even though it was the film debut of 1980s RAZZIE® Icon Bo Derek. When I re-screened it while writing the book, I decided it was just too boring to suggest anyone sit through it!

I do, however, have a favorite anecdote about ORCA: When it played for all of 10 days at the movie theatre I managed while attending UCLA, the film's producer Dino deLaurentiis would come in every day, checking on the grosses (which were piddling at best). When the film failed to even half sell out during its opening week, Dino sat down and began sobbing in our lobby, asking (with his comical Italian accent): "Why nobody love my whale?!?!?"

I'm gonna have to disagree with Orca not being funny. The whale baby falling on the ship? Hilarious. The casual way it was washed off? More hilarious. Bo Derek losing a leg? Crowning moment of funny! OK, a lot of other scenes were hard to sit through, but those three scenes ALONE more than made up for it.

I said there were dozens of shark attack themed horror movies made over the course of the past three decades, I never said any of them were wildly successful, but they exist. Most of which are made by, you guessed it, The Asylum or SyFy Channel! However, you can easily spot these kind of movies at your local Best Buy or other DVD retail store, that was what I meant by living under a rock.

As for this flick getting under 30% at Rotten Tomatoes and Meta Critic ... come on, of course! What do you expect from a movie that's true selling point was it being a weak sauce version of "Girls Gone Wild ... With A Shark"!?

If there is one thing I hate on this earth in the cinematic world it is watered down PG-13 horror movies. Go all in with films like these or don't go in! You are either something or you are not. Don't give us horror fans this PG-13 nonsense. It may have been better if they had just gone all in and made the film that stuff like this is supposed to be.

I agree with you My Lord Naseby, If you are going to release something that is going to be sensless crap you might as well do it as it was meant to be in it's proper formatBeer. However, the producers probably have an extended DVD cut of this triffle to be rolled off the presses in November anyways. So you can catch it in its full prosterior then.

It's not that. I just dislike lukewarm films that go against what it should be. If an action film had one fight scene in it with a small pistol with a few rounds and that was it and the rest was crappy dialogue that would suck as an action film! we need the action scenes and explosions for it to be a good action film.

Yeah, but I rank that movie as a "turn your brain off and enjoy the mindless fun" flick. That probably what Zack Snyder was going for with "Sucker Punch", but failed.

I didn't think Sucker Punch was meant to be mindless entertainment like Piranha 3D. I thought it had a lot to say and there were some mature themes including possible rape and sexual abuse. I thought it was a very good movie because it wasn't some mindless film.

Not all of the critics. As for this movie, it was its own weird hybrid of Cowboys and Aliens, except this was spring break movie, mixed with shark attack movie, mixed with bank heist movie. In the end, it's one big ugly mess.

A lot of movies are criticized for pandering to an audience, but I don't think they should be panned just for pandering. Hugo shamelessly panders to film buffs, but it's an EXTREMELY well-made film! It's films that pander to an audience, but fail miserably that deserve panning. Films like Shark Night 3D, that tries to pander to fans of sleazy bloody boobie movies, but doesn't seem to realize why people "like" those types of movies.

 
The good:
 
Sara Paxton and Katherine McPhee in bikinis: Pretty much self-explanatory.
 
Malik: Malik is a football player who gets his arm bitten off by a shark. Later in the film, he punches the shark out with his remaining hand. The film should have been more of that and less of the actual movie.
 
The music video: After the credits, there's a music video that is a good indication of what the film should have been! Malik's solo is a higlight.
 
The bad:
 
Sara Paxton and Katherine McPhee's acting: They may look good in bikinis, but their acting lives much to be desired. If you want to see Paxton in an actually scary movie, go order The Innkeepers OnDemand.
 
The special effects: The shark effects are terrible, but not as hilarious as the ones in Shark Attack 3: Megalodon!* Also, I heard that the 3D effects weren't good.
 
The ugly:
 
The message: The message of the film seem sto be that people who watch violent movies all really want to watch REAL violence. Hypocritical because the film itself is violent.
 
The PG-13 rating: It desperately wants to be the Piranha 3D of 2011, but it doesn't want to lose the valuable money of teenagers. This leads to the biggest failing of the film:
 
The failure to commit to being a sleazy bloody boobie movie: I've never seen a film that rips-off a movie without realizing what made it "good" so badly in my movie watching career. The biggest example would be the dog in the movie. Dogs survive disaster movies. (i.e. Armageddon, Independence Day, 2012) Dogs don't survive these types of movie! I'm not saying I want to see dogs being eaten, but it just shows how the filmmakers didn't want to commit to their movie.
 
The reason why this review was posted later than usual is because I fell off the Pokemon wagon. Grade: C-

The part you wrote in white isn't really a spoiler. What you wrote about MALIK was.

To explain, yesterday was my nephew's birthday party and because of my schedule, I didn't learn of it until Thursday. Since I didn't have a lot of time to shop, I just gave him some of my old GBA Pokemon games since he likes the show. He made me play with him and man, those games are like heroin: easily addictable and hard to quit.
 
As for why I spoilered that part, it didn't feel right to reveal something that happens at the end of the credits.
