Nickelodeon Going BIG This Year At Comic Con-Celebrating 20 Yrs Of SpongeBob SquarePants

Movie Review: 47 Meters Down Scary. Thrilling. Pulse-pounding

Scary. Thrilling. Pulse-pounding

RAMA is back.

47 Meters Down is scary, it’s thrilling and pulse-pounding and it’s sexy. One of the craziest shark films I’ve ever seen and one of the most fun times I’ve had in theaters this year. I understand that this particular genre has been somewhat belittled because of that outrageous cheesy “Sharknado” franchise, but I guarantee you that more than anything, “47 Meters Down” is an enjoyable survival film.

Mandy Moore and Claire Holt play two sisters, one is trying to rebound after a devastating break-up, she often plays it safe, while the other is more daring, a risk-taker. Some of the locals persuade them to go shark diving where they’re supposed to be in a protective cage deep in the open sea surrounded by the majestic Great Whites, but when their cage suddenly breaks away from their boat, they find themselves at the bottom of the seabed and the race against time begins. Not only will they have to evade the savage sharks, their oxygen supplies are also rapidly running out.

I think one of the things I appreciate the most about “47 Meters Down” is that the film has no intention of making the sharks be the villain. They’re not good sharks, they’re not bad sharks, they’re just sharks, they’re animals, they don’t have any personal agenda or vendetta, it’s the human characters’ fault for messing with the sharks’ territory. So that alone separates “47 Meters Down” from “Jaws," "The Shallows," and “Deep Blue Sea.”

Much credit to Mandy Moore and Claire Holt, not just for their impressive stamina in those underwater sequences since these are obviously physically challenging roles, but also the sisterly dynamic between them as they’re frustrated and terrified, so convincing that we the audiences become frustrated and terrified for them.

With any survival film, in “47 Meters Down” you’ll also get to see the determination of the human spirit, so despite their lack of knowledge of the ocean, Mandy Moore’s and Claire Holt’s characters keep racking their brains trying to find a way out. There are unpredictable consequences for their every attempt, between running out of air or drowning and getting eaten by sharks, the danger is ever present, so this is an anything-goes kind of movie.

Yesterday, everyone knew The Beatles. Today, only Jack remembers their songs. He’s about to become a very big deal. From Academy Award winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later) and Richard Curtis, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually and Notting Hill, comes a rock-n-roll comedy about music, dreams, friendship, and the long and winding road that leads to the love of your life.

Jack Malik (Himesh Patel, BBC’s Eastenders) is a struggling singer-songwriter in a tiny English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his childhood best friend, Ellie (Lily James, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again). Then, after a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to discover that The Beatles have never existed … and he finds himself with a very complicate…
