Note to self: super-smart sharks NOT snuggly

NOOOO!!! NOT THE MAKOS! glurggle blarg gahhhh… *ahem* I mean, I’ve been tagged with a HalloMeme to choose my favorite ocean-themed scary movie. Since I led a deprived cable-TV-less childhood, I missed out on all the fantastic 50s and 60s B-movies, but fortunately there’s been no lack of extreme silliness in recent years.

One of the finest of all marine movies is Deep Blue Sea (1999), in which super-intelligent mako sharks are GENETICALLY ENGINEERED O NOES by a hawt wetsuit-clad model-scientist working from a highly advanced underwater research station. Of course, when the sharks (whose super-intelligence also somehow translates to super-size and who don’t look like makos at all) inevitably escape, they eat LL Cool J’s parrot, chasing it down with Samuel L. Jackson and a bunch of interchangable beautiful people.

Here’s a clip of Samuel L. Jackson, who has failed to remove the mothereffing sharks from the mothereffing underwater research station.

I tag jebyrnes at I’m a chordata, urochordata for more HalloMeme goodness!

    Oh, dude, I have to nominate Spring Break Shark Attack. It was on CBS a couple years ago, and it was awesomely bad. The TWoP recap is here.

    “The paraglider screams as he slowly sails right on into a shark’s waiting mouth.” It doesn’t get any better than that.
