"Deep Blue Sea" has everything: shape-changing genius sharks, maddeningly convoluted plot points, comic relief from LL Cool J, water-related puns, and more shockingly brutal deaths than all six seasons of "Game of Thrones" combined. OK, that last one's a stretch, but you get the point.
This week, the CAN'T WAIT! crew dives into Renny Harlin's 1999 aquatic
misstep classic, which stars a bunch of people whose careers were likely stifled by the movie's severe lack of box office success. (Except for Samuel L. Jackson, whose death in the movie made him a star all over again.) Topics discussed include cartoon-like CG sharks, the egregious misappropriation of science, favorite death scenes, and uncovering the real hero of the movie (spoiler alert: it's not the bird).
Next week, we'll be discussing 1998's genre-confused witch tale, "Practical Magic," starring Nicole Kidman, Sandra Bullock, Stockard Channing, and Diane Wiest.
