Deep Blue Sea (Harlin, 1999): Riverside Studios, 8pm
This is part of the cinema's 'Bad Film Club' and there will be a running, live commentary throughout the screening of the movie.
Chicago Reader review:
'At once self-conscious and generic, this smart monster movie about smart
monsters—supersharks cleverer than the scientist who created
them—repeatedly lulls you into thinking it's paint by numbers. But the
writers know you'll know what to expect. The characters are sufficiently
naive to get picked off one by one, but their ignorance doesn't extend
to the genre conventions governing their behavior, making for some
shockingly funny moments. The furious, expressionistically
blood-drenched action is set in and around an oppressively
self-contained floating laboratory that seems designed—like the mountain
hotel in The Shining—to test its inhabitants' vulnerability.
Expect to be frequently reminded of other movies—that's part of the
point. Renny Harlin (Cliffhanger) directed a screenplay by Duncan
Kennedy, Donna Powers, and Wayne Powers; with Saffron Burrows, LL Cool
J, Samuel L. Jackson, Thomas Jane, Jacqueline McKenzie, Michael
Rapaport, and Stellan Skarsgard.'
Here is the trailer.
