After Hours: The Shallows

Shark Week #3 is finally here and this time it’s the turn of “The Shallows”

Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra who despite giving us films such as Orphan and Non-stop is also the director responsible for the likes of “Goal 2: Living the Dream” and “The House of Wax” remake which so memorably was sold on the prospect of seeing Paris Hilton die.

So with the prospect of a bikini bottom clad Blake Lively cashing in the pretty girl dollars alongside a rather large shark as selling the movie you might expect the same sort of throw away summer fodder with all the dramatic depth of an Emma Watson performance…..I mean it couldn’t possibly be good….could it?

After Hours #4 – Deep Blue Sea

Welcome to our seasonal “Shark Week” episode as after we had so much fun with “The Meg” last season why not look at a shark movie every season.

On this episode we revisit the 90’s classic Deep Blue Sea as a team of scientists find themselves stuck in a rapidly deteriating underwater facility while surrounded by super inteligent sharks!!

We question what it is about this film which made it such a cult classic, Samuel L. Jackson’s favourite death scene and how much of the film did the sharks actually plan plus much more!!

After Hours #1 – The Meg

Hey folks and welcome to the first episode of “After Hours” a series of bonus shows were we will be looking at the films which mean the most to us, but whose directors don’t need require us to work through the director’s filmography.

Kicking things off is “The Meg” whose troubled production history we look into as we finally got to see the rampaging Megalodon brought to the screen.

We not only look at the film, but Elwood perhaps geeks out hard on the comparisons to Steve Alten’s books.

So come join us in the booth!
