Musicalish #283

It's been a while. Lately there is so much good music out there! Hiphop mostly. Sift through this and enjoy the greater ones. Sixty tracks for all types of tacts. Get a grip. Have a trip. Get some snacks. Sit back... and relax.


Grammar Nazis...

Grammar Nazis are like contraction killers.

Get it? I bet y'all finna h've a hard time with this one.

Sand Sharks (2012)

Sand Sharks (2012)

The movie begins with a scene of the ocean: vast landscapes of sand, greenery and foamy waves... and a couple of guys riding their bikes in a haze of dust and debris when *poof* a shark pops up and eats them. Jumps right out of the sand and eats them.

So they decide to throw a party! A spring break thing. Fortunately a responsible officer of the law jumps in and stops it. For a while.

Until then your party isn't on the sand, it's on ice, she says... and that's when they decided to make Ice Sharks, huh?

Sand Sharks actually was better! Not only are the sceneries better: warmer, vibrant, full of life - but the angles are better too. The CGI is better, the plot progression overall is - albeit a little bit cliche - not bad at all. The script is on point. The scientific bits are on point. Wordplay, entertainment value and props - it's all there.

Apparently it's also a sequel to... this one movie I forget the name of but greatly enjoyed so: if you liked that one, whatever it was called, you can expect more like it here! It's a bit like the Tremors franchise but with sharks.

Unfortunately bad special effects start kicking in after a while, and together with limited party loops that cuts down the mood... a lot. It's low-budget most definitely. It's a B-movie. But it's an entertaining one too, that unfortunately lack of production quality and consistency eventually brings down low, despite some both good-looking and good-actors, cast members, and one killer beach party.

But compared to Ice Sharks? Definitely better.

 rated 2/5: decent

Ice Sharks (2016)

Ice Sharks (2016)

A research station at the edge of a glacier is attacked by super-evolved sharks who've been kept locked within a little lagoon, isolated from the rest of the world, and are suddenly let free as the ice melts. One by one the research team become shark bait as the station's first cut off from land, and then sinks to the bottom of the ocean, until the remaining crew at long last do their best to get out and up to the Icebreaker that hears their distress call and waits above.

Sound good? It's not, really. For a while the movie had vast and icy sceneries going for it at least, but that all disappears as they sink into the waves, and suddenly they're not even affected by the cold.

Loose ends, lack of urgency and a mediocre manuscript make for a pretty boring movie, though there was potential with the theme.

The actors aren't the best in the world either, but the worst part: the CGI.

This is what I like to call a C-Movie. You do so once but never again. I wonder if Sand Sharks will be any better...

 rated 1/5: shit shit shit

Dead 7 (2016)

Dead 7 (2016)

Samurai 7 but with zombies? Why not!

It's a gritty, part sci-fi/part Walking Dead-type grunge movie where, just like in the originals, you follow a group of brave men on an honorable quest against a venerable evil, where one after the other the characters just die away until... well, watch the movie and you'll see. it's no surprise though.

Technically it's five brave men and two ladies, one of which can be seen above, who fight the zombies and their killer empress: Apocalyptica - lady of the mountain.

Maybe you have to be in a certain mindstate to appreciate tragedy, but it's got one of those endings that - no matter if the movie leading up to it wasn't perfect (choreography and consistency could've used some improvement) - more than makes up for it.

So close to giving this a four just for the end but I shouldn't go further than...

 rated 3/5: not bad
