The Shallows Header

The Shallows
Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra
Written by Anthony Jaswinski
Starring Blake Lively
Distributor: Sony Pictures

Rated PG-13 | 86 Minutes
Release Date: June 24th, 2016

If you’ve seen the previews for The Shallows, then you know what the movie is about; a surfer is attacked by a Great White Shark at a “secret” beach in Mexico, and left stranded on a rocky reef a mere 200 yards from shore. The tide is coming and soon it’ll be her vs. the biggest apex predator on earth, on its home turf. “Shark movies” have become cliche in recent years thanks in part to two main sources; the popularity of Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, and the ridiculous success of SyFy’s shark movies: Mega-Shark vs. Giant Octopus, Sharktopus, the Sharknado series, etc. 41 years ago, Steven Spielberg created a monster with Jaws, the first summer blockbuster and my favorite movie of all time. Since then, moviemakers have been trying to recapture that lightning. Usually, the movies are comical in their attempts. Who doesn’t remember Samuel L. Jackson and LL Cool J battling makos in Deep Blue Sea. However, once in awhile they actually get it right.

Famous Monster’s Favorite Film Quotes of 2012

Film Quotes of 2012

2012 was a fantastic year for movies. Films like The Dark Knight Rises and Marvel’s The Avengers entertained audiences with blockbuster action sequences and the ultimate in childhood wish fulfillment, while movies such as Drew Goddard‘s Cabin in the Woods and Gareth Edward‘s The Raid: Redemption will long be remembered as putting the nail in the coffin of their respective genres.

We saw new films from acclaimed directors like Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, Ridley Scott, Christopher Nolan, Ang Lee, David O. Russell, Paul Thomas Anderson, William Friedkin, Steven Soderbergh, Ben Affleck, Sam Mendes, and Kathryn Bigelow. Not to mention the latest offerings from Rian Johnson, Joss Whedon, Richard Linklater, and newcomers Colin Trevorrow, Benh Zeitlin, and Stephen Chbosky.

So many memorable characters – so many great lines delivered by talented actors inhabiting their roles. Here are some of the best (and a few of the worst) film quotes from 2012. Feel free to include your own in the comments! You can also check out my Top 25 Films of 2012 here!

Movie Review: Oliver Stone’s Savages

Savages PosterSavages
Directed by Oliver Stone
Written by Shane Salerno, Don Winslow
Starring Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Johnson, Blake Lively, Salma Hayek, Benicio del Toro, John Travolta
Universal Pictures
Rated R | 127 Minutes
Release Date: July 6, 2012

There’s something wrong with your love story, baby.” – Elena (Salma Hayek)

You’re goddamn right there is, Salma. Oliver Stone‘s latest film, Savages, is a heavy-handed, ineffectual effort that produces plenty of smoke with little fire.

Based on the novel by Don Winslow, Savages stars Blake Lively (Green Lantern) as Ophelia, one of many detestable, unbelievable characters in this moth-eaten shambles of a story. Ophelia is a blonde-haired flower child with the unique benefit of having not one, but two douche-bag boyfriends!

Former Navy SEAL and ex-mercenary Chon (Taylor Kitsch) and Ben (Aaron Johnson), a charitable Buddhist-slash-environmentalist (code for “white guy with dreadlocks”), run a lucrative business growing some of the most potent marijuana ever developed. That’s right, the ultra-aggressive dick you hated in high school and the pacifist Greenpeace volunteer who looks down on you for not recycling are BFFs and they’re totally cool with sharing the same clueless trust fund hippie.
