Fun Shark Movies To Watch Instead Of Discovery Channel’s Shark Week

Once again Discovery Channel’s Shark Week will be taking over the airwaves this week. The event kicks off today and as usual, lots of people seem to be extremely excited about it. However, hours and hours shark documentaries and mockumentaries aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. That or there are the countless people that don’t bother with cable television anymore. Whatever the case may be, if you’re looking for some alternative shark related fun this week, here are some shark movies you can watch instead.

Deep Blue Sea

If you didn’t see this somewhat cult classic when it came out back in 1999, there’s a good chance that you won’t even remember that it existed. If you did see it, you probably won’t ever forget it. It’s a rare film that has the exact right amount of terrible cheese mixed with genuine action that makes it nearly impossible not to enjoy on some level. The plot centers around several scientists attempting to cure Alzheimer’s disease, which somehow results in biologically engineered super-intelligent sharks trying to kill them. Not to give too much away, but Samuel L. Jackson stars in this movie and has arguably one of the best death scenes ever. This movie is, if nothing else, a lot of fun to watch.

This extremely low budget movie from the early 2000’s took a bit more of a light handed or “realistic,” if you will, approach to the whole shark movie thing. The movie is loosely based on real events and centers around a couple who get stranded out in the middle of the ocean while scuba diving with a group of tourists. As they drift aimlessly they, get this, find out that sharks have been surrounding them. This isn’t the fast paced action adventure that other such movies had been prior, but that’s part of the appeal. Be warned, if you watch this movie, do not be prepared for a happy ending. It’s a bit slow to start, but it ends up to be quite satisfying, for the sharks that is! (Spoilers???)

This is far more than just a great movie about sharks. Jaws is almost universally considered to be among the greatest films of all time, and with very good reason. With technology being what it is these days, a lot of movies just don’t hold up as well as we might like them too. Jaws more than holds up. It is just as scary and just as perfect as it’s made out to be. If you’ve for some reason never seen the film that helped make Steven Spielberg what he is today, you absolutely should make some time this week to watch Jaws.

The Sy-Fy Channel has been pumping out cheaply produced garbage monster movies for what seems like forever and none of them have been memorable for the right reasons. Sharknado broke the mold though, not because it is a good movie, but because it embraced the bad. The idea is so ridiculous and over the top that just hearing the name made people have to watch it, if for no other reason than sick curiosity. The plot is exactly what you might guess. There is a hurricane barraging Los Angeles and for some reason, sharks are flying out of it. Low budget chaos ensues. The movie holds a surprisingly high 82% approval rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes, which helped to get the sequel, Sharknado: The Second One, fast tracked. This movie is best enjoyed with a group of friends who know what they’re getting into.
