Everything is fun and games till the sharks turn on you! <guffaw> I must admit I LOVED Deep Blue Sea when I saw it with friends at the Cinemadome and we laughed like hyenas! It was and still is the funniest horror movie I’ve ever seen so let me be the first to say … am ready to watch this with a bowl of hot buttered popcorn and a soda (no brand preference).
Has humanity learned nothing about making sharks super smart? What next giving them legs so they can terrorize us on land next (just kidding sharks rarely attack humans)? Well it looks like we haven’t because a new mad genius has decided to improve on the sea killing machines that haven’t changed all that much since the time of dinosaurs. Deep Blue Sea 2 will be released on April 17, 2018 on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack ($24.98 SRP), DVD ($19.98 SRP) and Digital. The Blu-ray™ Combo Pack features the film in hi-definition, a standard definition DVD and a digital version of the film and will be rated R for gore, violence, language and general mayhem!
Deep Blue Sea 2, shark conservationist Dr. Misty Calhoun (Danielle Savre) is invited to consult on a new, top secret project run by pharmaceutical billionaire Carl Durant (Michael Beach). She believes the project, performed at a remote, sea-based facility, focuses on extracting shark antibodies to help work toward cures for human diseases. However, Dr. Calhoun is shocked to learn that the company is using unpredictable bull sharks as its test subjects, and Durant has bio-engineered a shiver of highly intelligent, super-aggressive bull sharks. When science meddles with the time-tested process of nature and nurture, the outcome can be deadly. The film is directed by two-time Independent Spirit Award nominee Darin Scott (Menace II Society, To Sleep With Anger), and written by Hans Rodionoff (Lost Boys: The Tribe) and award-winning writing partners Jessica Scott & Eric Patterson (Another Cinderella Story). Tom Keniston (Sophia Grace & Rosie’s Royal Adventure) serves as executive producer, and Tom Siegrist (Santa’s Little Helper, The Exorcism of Molly Hartley) is the film’s producer.
Rounding out the cast are Danielle Savre (Heroes, Boogeyman 2) in the lead role of shark conservationist Dr. Misty Calhoun; Rob Mayes (John Dies at the End, Mistresses) as Trent Slater, a highly decorated ex-Navy SEAL; and Michael Beach (Third Watch, The 100, upcoming Aquaman) as Carl Durant, a big pharma billionaire with questionable ethics. Rounding out the cast is Nathan Lynn (Outlander) as tech expert Aaron Ellroy, Kim Syster (Sterlopers) as neurobiologist Leslie Kim, and Jeremy Jess Boado (House Party: Tonight’s the Night) as clinical neurophysiologist Daniel Kim.
“Deep Blue Sea 2 is a true sequel, staying within the mythology of the original film, and taking the next step in the evolution of the sharks … and their human counterparts,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, WBHE, Vice President, TV Marketing, Family & Animation. “This time, there’s more perspective from the sharks, giving greater personality to the ‘villains’ in this film. It’s a thrill ride that will keep the audience guessing throughout.”

I think that Downsizing is movie with too many parts. At first glance I thought it was going to be a fluffy light holiday comedy but instead it was kind of serious with overpopulation, how to silence dissenting voices, working while broke, the disappearing middle class and segregation (that was by accident). This movie would have been SOO good if they had focused on Ngoc Lan Tran (Hong Chau) who’s a Vietnamese descendent shrunken by the government for speaking against power. Really all of the people shrunken not by choice but by force to silence them and used by the ‘residents’ as cheap labor but still looked down upon. In case you wonder how people got shrunk for ‘free’ to be slave labor they are political prisoners from countries the export goods made by cheap labor. This was a story given short shrift in the film but that I found fascinating since it’s a mini area why didn’t they make them decent livable low rent housing? Do the communities not have to keep building up to code? This inquiring mind really wanted that answer if they wanted this to be a ‘serious film’ about over population and destroying the earth. If they didn’t want to expand on the people downsized against their will treated as sharecroppers and instead wanted to be funny. Could we not spend more time with Dusan Mircovic (Christoph Waltz) and Konrad (Udo Kier) who stole every scene they were in as shady eastern European importers of luxury deals. When Konrad casually slipped that he had a title but his ex-wife had the money but he still kept his boat it was a hoot. Or that Dusan was living the life as downsized while his wife was still big with a joyful smirk. They were a delight and I did not realize how funny Christoph was but really wanted to see more of him. I’m not saying Downsize is bad it just wasn’t able to balance the humor and ‘afterschool’ serious subject matter as well as it could have. It’s one of those films that could have been lots of fun and thought provoking but made bad casting choices and the decision to focus on the most boring character made the movie lose steam. If only they could release the movie with Paul’s head exploding so that we could enjoy the supporting cast and explore this Lilliputian world without Gulliver.
I’m not sure why they advertised Kristen Wiig as the co-star when she’s barely in the movie! Also what a lost opportunity for major comedy to explain why she left! She changed her mind halfway through the shaving? So were women awake during the process but manbabys can’t handle it so they are knocked out? Wouldn’t have been more interesting if she was getting undressed with other women in the floor when all of a sudden a loud popping/bomb noise than flashing emergency lights, voice over the intercom code red and a crash cart rushes past the door. All the women waiting look at each other than Audrey (Kristen Wiig) looks at a black woman who slowly reaches for her bag before they exchange a ‘I’m getting the freck out of here’ look as they both grab their bags and run out like bats out of hell. It would have taken a few minutes but so visually funny for 4 or 5 women run out past the lobby in various states of undress!
Now can we talk about Paul (Matt Damon) the white everyman Hollywood always wants to shove down our throats???? He’s a wasted space who in every scene sticks out like a sore thumb. He isn’t able to be the right kind of funny for the role and well his character was an annoying weak mess. Paul literally took the wonder and fun out of every scene he’s in and he’s in EVERY DAMN scene! He’s a lazy Betsy whine that could totally have easily gotten recertified for a better job but is to wishy washy to do anything but resent other people’s upscale lifestyle. He’s the ‘I’m a nice guy’ now fall on my dick that every woman refuses to deal with IRL but knows cause they are ALWAYS hanging around waiting for a moment of weakness or drunk regret to finally get the woman they say is a ‘friend’ but really thinks they’ve been ‘friendzoned’ cause they are sooo nice. No your damned creepy and we know what you want but hope you go away. In downsizing he NEVER goes away instead finds a new woman to tell him what to do since he’s a blank boring bland canvas.
Downsizing imagines what might happen if, as a solution to over-population, Norwegian scientists discover how to shrink humans to five inches tall and propose a 200-year global transition from big to small. People soon realize how much further money goes in a miniaturized world, and with the promise of a better life, everyman Paul Safranek (Matt Damon) and wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) decide to abandon their stressed lives in Omaha in order to get small and move to a new downsized community — a choice that triggers life-changing adventures.

I’m ready to be scared for 31 Days of Horror on SyFy this October! I plan to count down the days for Stan Lee’s (The Avengers, Iron Man, Guardians of the Galaxy) original movie The Sandman on Saturday, October 14th at 9PM. Peter Sullivan (Ominous, Summoned) wrote and directed this film perfect for the spooky season produced by Hybrid.
It’s not often Stan Lee produces an original movie but he couldn’t resist The Sandman! The horror movie has an illustrious team of scary movie masters who worked with Lee, Gill Champion, Barry Barnholtz (Leprechaun), and Jeffrey Schenck (Finders Keepers, The Crooked Man).
The Sandman stars horror fan favorites Tobin Bell (the Saw films), Shaun Sipos (The Vampire Diaries, Texas Chainsaw 3D, Final Destination 2), Amanda Wyss (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Ricco Ross (Aliens) and stars Haylie Duff (Napoleon Dynamite, Material Girls) in a role that is unexpected and frightening
‘Madison’ (Shae Smolik) an 8 year old orphan is sent to live with her ‘Aunt Claire’ (Haylie Duff) a struggling artist after her father is found dead. Claire realizes Madison has a scary boogeyman friend called ‘The Sandman’ who she suspects may have killed her father and other victims across the country. ‘Valentine’ (Tobin Bell) is leading a government agency looking for Madison & ‘The Sandman’ to save or use her supernatural powers of telekinesis. Will Claire and Madison be able to save ‘The Sandman’ next victim and keep Valentine away from the child.
Are you planning to get scared by the Sandman? What’s your 31 Days of Horror looking like?

Yes I’m late to the Woman Power Wonder Woman film that came out a few weeks ago. I’m alway son the fence about DC Comic movies since they are usually disappointing or <ehh>. My curiosity about Wonder Woman is that this is the first superhero film helmed by a woman actor AND director so my feminist senses have been tingling for a while. I started getting twinges with each cast announcement that didn’t fit with my idea of an Amazon Goddess and it’s just so damned white (yes I said it). I suspected that the women of color would most been the background with no speaking lines. But I was mildly
ANN WOLF – ARTEMIS
pleasantly surprised that it was more diverse than I thought it would be with the black nanny, Senator Acantha (Florence Kasumba) and Artemis warrior (Ann Wolf) (who had the body I would imagine closer to an Amazon but THAT would not appeal to as many male eyes <guffaw>). Having about 5 – 6 lines between them so an improvement over the no words I expected. I liked the film didn’t love it the way everyone else did but Wonder Woman isn’t one of my beloved characters and I would have preferred more time with the Amazon society and getting to know Diana and the warrior women more than Steve Trevor (Chris Pine). I didn’t get any fire from Diana more of a curiosity about sleeping with a guy than love or passion but Chris doesn’t seem to have much chemistry with anyone so <ehh>. The WWI aspect with interesting with a female villain Dr. Maru (Elena Anaya) who just wanted to use ‘SCIENCE’ to poison Germany’s enemies but I’m not sure they didn’t go into the scar and it seemed as if it was more of an unrequited passion for Ludendorff (Danny Huston) aka the male gaze. I did like that Diana’s fighting companions included the Chief (Eugene Brave Rock), Sameer (Saïd Taghmaoui) and Charlie (Ewen Bremner) who had backstories that I really want to learn more about in subsequent DC series (TV/Movies/Online content). It was interesting to watch a super hero so based in ‘real life’ so that it felt more like a war spy film than something out of comic book. It was visually lighter than most comic book films so I could really see what was going on and the basic story was fine. As far an an origin film for people who don’t know much about Wonder Woman mythology it was good just a bit slow for me with more filler than I would have liked and way too many characters so not everyone got enough screen time but I know what that means. We’ll see them in flashbacks in the sequel. I recommend the film for anyone who likes super hero comic book films, who want to support a female led film, a movie directed by a woman and likes the idea of warrior women. If you go in expecting Girl Power aka women of all colors than you will be disappointed but white feminism .
If I refused to see films that don’t reflect my diverse life I’d likely never see a movie or watch tv again well a few shows but not some of my favorites.
What do you think? Did you enjoy the film or did you decide to wait and watch at home? Leave a comment below or tweet me at cherry_LA with comments and thanks for reading!
