  • I freaking loved the Meg books written by Steve Alten! I know that this movie was in development hell for years and that it’s not supposed to be a super serious movie, but I would have rather seen it as a more accurate depiction of the book. Plus I felt like this movie was mostly meant to appease the Chinese gov’s sensors.

  • So random, but the dog in The Meg and the dog in Jaws have the same name, so obvious reference there. Ruby Rose, the actor who plays Jaxx, is genderfluid, and if you watch the movie again, you'll notice that Jaxx is never referred to with gender-specific pronouns, so that's actually super cool. Also, as a shark lover, this has got to be my favorite shark movie. Not because I think megalodon is still alive (just no), but because it addresses the issue of finning, and at the end, when it comes to it, it's the regular sharks that kill the Meg and save the day. 11,417 sharks are killed by humans every HOUR. That's 100 million every year. Sharks are becoming endangered, with thresher sharks being particularly effected because of their large caudal fin (a fin that long makes a lot of soup, I guess). All three known species of thresher shark have been classified as vulnerable to extinction since 2007, and yet they are still considered a prized game fish in the USA as well as many other countries. The negative rhetoric surrounding sharks as a species has prevented them from getting the protection they so desperately need, and we, human beings, are quickly killing them off. The man who wrote the book that Jaws is based on has publicly apologized for contributing to the rapid extinction of one the oldest and most beautiful animals on our planet. It's fine to be afraid of sharks. I'm afraid of cows for goodness sake (although cows kill 20 people every year, and there were only five people killed by sharks in 2019). Plenty of people are afraid of wolves, but wolves still have protection under The Endangered Species Act. My point is, just because something scares us, doesn't mean we have the right to wipe it off the planet.

  • When this came out I saw it before friends (because I adore shark movies) when asked if they should see it I said "If you go in thinking Deep Blue Sea and not Jaws you're gonna have an awesome time". Also, Pim's version of Hey Mickey is everything.

But I'm loving these non kill count vids like Podcasts and what's your favorite scary movie😁since I'm binging those now too. Oh and liking and commenting on them too ✌❤ I'm part of the 30's club too, since July 2020, and I pretty sure it called a "Gunkken Craft"

  • The pitch with the other billionaire and the theme park reminded me of Jurassic Park II and I’d be so down for that style but with this cast and this plot. Like, the billionaire wants to go down and get another shark and he’s got his own team but the OG team has to go stop him and it ends with a meg on the California coast.

  • I would call the meg, jaws but its bigger and more hangry. Also kill count mabye? I haven't seen it so I dont know how kill countable it is.

  • I'm 99% sure the dog being named Pippin is a Jaws reference, as right before Alex Kitner gets attacked, there is a guy playing fetch with his dog around the water, and it is implied to dog gets eaten since we see him repeatedly calling out for the dog, while the piece of wood the dog was fetching is floating in the water. The dog's name in that case was also Pippin.

  • I have a real love for shark movies. Even the really low budget bad ones. Sharks hold a very special place in my heart so seeing so many movies about them is so fun. Also sequel idea: their is a book called Hell's aquarium. Its about a giant aquarium that has a megalodon if I remember the plot correctly.
