Jaws (1975)

It's a hot summer on Amity Island, a small community whose main business is its beaches. When new Sheriff Martin Brody discovers the remains of a shark attack victim, his first inclination is to close the beaches to swimmers. This doesn't sit well with Mayor Larry Vaughn and several of the local bus…inessmen. Brody backs down to his regret as that weekend a young boy is killed by the predator. The dead boy's mother puts out a bounty on the shark and Amity is soon swamped with amateur hunters and fisherman hoping to cash in on the reward. A local fisherman with much experience hunting sharks, Quint, offers to hunt down the creature for a hefty fee. Soon Quint, Brody and Matt Hooper from the Oceanographic Institute are at sea hunting the Great White shark. As Brody succinctly surmises after their first encounter with the creature, they're going to need a bigger boat. (Read More)

Mike is working as a park engineer and considering marriage to his girlfriend, killer whale biologist Kathryn Morgan.… Sean is also involved with 1 of the park's water skiers, Kelly Ann Bukowski. Sea World is about to open a massive 'Undersea Kingdom' which will bring visitors closer to marine life than ever before. The park is accessible from the ocean by a series of gates, one of which malfunctions. A young Great White Shark swims through the gate, and when a maintenance diver heads down to fix the gate he does not return. The young Great White is captured & placed in a tank but soon dies despite Kathryn's best efforts to save it. More alarming though, is the young shark's massive, 35 foot mother which has followed the baby shark into the lagoon and killed the maintenance diver, whose body is recovered. It isn't long before the huge shark begins wreaking havoc, and Mike & Kathryn, along with Sea World manager Calvin Bouchard and photographer Phillip Fitzroyce, must find a way to eliminate the shark before they - or the guests - become the shark's next meal.

In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville's Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story. "In the H…eart of the Sea" reveals the encounter's harrowing aftermath, as the ship's surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade, as their captain searches for direction on the open sea and his first mate still seeks to bring the great whale down.

Godzilla (2014)

reviewed by: max crawford "the eventual climactic monster showdown is everything a godzilla fan could hope for." if you're a film in 2014 and you're still relegating female characters to tragic backstory or hero's moping wife roles, you need to sit down and have a word with yourself. the only female… character with any real agency in gareth edwards' godzilla is a 300-foot monster that eats nuclear submarines. it's a shame, because it's the sort of film you want to be shouting about from the rooftops, and adding niggling little caveats somewhat ruin the effect. not only is it an astounding spectacle, it's a proper godzilla movie, spitting atomic fire in the face of roland emmerich's misbegotten 1998 atrocity. the opening titles set the tone: over a montage of 1950s atomic bomb tests, the credits appear alongside tantalising snippets of information which are quickly whited out as if by a censor. the sequence was designed by kyle cooper, the man behind the main titles for se7en and every other film with a decent main title sequence, and it neatly reflects the teasing approach taken to revealing big g himself. that's right, there's plenty of trivial human nonsense to be gotten out of the way before we encounter any monsters at all, let alone their king. if you simply must have humans in your film, bryan cranston and juliette binoche are two pretty solid picks. their early scenes in a nuclear power plant in tokyo lend the film a grounding and emotional heft that's rare in a summer … (Read More)
