Over The Edge (1979, Jonathan Kaplan)

Welcome to New Granada. Home of the stoner, land of the dungaree (Dazed and what now? ), where the kids scrape by whilst their erstwhile guardians resemble authority just a jot. Lots of fun here, with a young Matt Dillon; who sprang from the womb fully formed it seems....) and a load of behaviour that would trigger anyone (anyone who spent their childhood on Ritalin cough ahem) a hahaha.
I digress. Proper grown up score is what I notices after all these years cough , along wid da Cheap Trick and Van Halenduuuude of course.
After a tragedy, things come to a head quite nicely thank you. I recommend this, and not because of the year either , as Little Darlings it isn't

Body Heat 1981.

A woman plots with her lover a shady lawyer to kill her wealthy husband.

This was a tense erotic thriller at its best, Kathleen Turner in her debut role played the part of the femme fatale spoiled wife . The film seems to be set in three stages. One the meeting, two the set up of the murder and three the aftermath. William Hurt gives out a great performance as the shady lawyer who is smitten by Turner (who wouldn't be) and the twist was a bit of a shock and unexpected. Ted Danson, Richard Crenna, Mickey Rourke and Kim Zimmer star alongside. After this film there was Fatal Attraction that lived up to this film with tense, and the so called other erotic thrillers that came out in the 90s were no match for this film. Recommended.

Crime Story 1993.

A agent is assigned to protect a wealthy businessman, when his charge is kidnapped in a daring plot, he teams up with a veteran officer only to discover somethings are not right.

This wasn't your typical Jackie Chan film, this is one of his serious roles, there is no slapstick comedy or much fighting, there is his usual high octane stunts. Based loosely on a true story that happened in early 80s and 90s, the film shows how dedicated one man had to find the person he was responsible for and to bring down the corrupt. To watch his previous films, Chan has been known to add plenty comedy, this film brings out his different side of acting, Worth a watch.

Why not after all there about 5 6 sharknado films, and loads of stupid shark films .
Here 10 .

Stupid shark films seem to be the in thing for about 10yrs, probably a tadge longer .

https://www.digitalspy.com/movies/a7...o-ghost-shark/


1. 2 Headed Shark Attack (2012)

With cinema-goers clearly growing immune to the terror of a one-headed shark, it was time to up the ante - and infect the waters with an even hungrier beast. And what's better than one set of teeth? This 2-headed variety, with an appetite for girls in bikinis like Brooke Hogan and Carmen Electra. And then? An inevitable sequel (3-Headed Shark Attack) with the headcount upped again by another 33.3 per cent.

2. Sharktopus (2010)

Starring Eric Roberts - who, if you recall, was once nominated for an Oscar - this is a sea-based reimagining of Frankenstein. Only in this case the doctor is a crazed scientist inventing killing machines, and the monster is half shark, half octopus. And unlike Mary Shelley's creation, this CGI abomination was happy to ditch the tortured, metaphysical soul-searching - and focus instead on its strict diet: young women with big boobs.

3. Sharknado (2013)

For a period in the 2010s, you get the impression that movie ideas meetings often involved gluing the word 'shark' onto the front of a natural disaster. Hence this cinematic car crash, "starring" Tara Reid – the tale of a freak tornado swamping LA. Which would be bad enough, but guess what? It's full of sharks. It's a sharknado.

4. Shark Night 3D (2011)

What should have been a wonderful getaway at a lake house for a group of friends is completely ruined when a shark starts eating them one by one. This was directed by the guy who did some of the Final Destination movies, and it's actually quite good. It's basically the Citizen Kane of really crappy shark movies.

5. Jersey Shore Shark Attack (2012)

Ever wondered what would happen if a shark attacked hundreds of Cristiano Ronaldos? Basically this. Tongue in cheek ridiculousness, this comes with the double bonus of featuring two of the greatest fictional Paulies of all time – the one from Goodfellas and the one from The Sopranos. No sign of The Situation though; a disappointing oversight.

6. Avalanche Sharks (2013)

A bikini competition in a ski resort - yes - goes dreadfully wrong when an avalanche of sharks threatens to kill everyone. We'd had sharks in the sea, a tornado of them, but sharks in the mountains, tearing through the snow? If someone told us this was written in crayon by an actual child, we would believe them.

7. Dinoshark (2010)

We've all secretly wondered what would happen if Godzilla had sex with Jaws, and this may be a decent approximation of the answer. It's a shark, but also a dinosaur. And frankly, it's causing absolute bloody chaos in Mexico. Someone should probably kill it – hey, maybe the guy who played Claire's ropey boyfriend in Six Feet Under? Ok then.

8. Mega Shark Versus Giant Octopus (2009)

The movie that really put mutant sharks on the cinematic map - and it's got it all: the 1990s pop star Debbie Gibson, a shark literally jumping so far out of the sea that it bites an aeroplane, and two old foes battling it out like Rocky Balboa and Apollo Creed. Only in this case Rocky is a shark and Apollo is a big octopus. Surprisingly moving.

9. Ghost Shark 2: Urban Jaws (2013)

The debates will range until the end of time about which movie sequels are better than the originals, and here's another to file under The Godfather Part II and The Empire Strikes Back. Just when you thought it was safe to get back in the ocean - if you really ever thought that - along comes another ghost shark.

10. Attack of the Jurassic Shark (2012)

So it turns out that 200 million years ago the waters were infested with enormous Jurassic Sharks who went around killing everything. Well, guess what? Now they're back and they want to bite some people in half. But don't worry: only really attractive ones.

Fright Night 2: New Blood 2013.

In Romania, student Charley and his friends discover that their new female professor Gerri Dandridge is a vampire.

New professor and new sexy neighbour, what more do you want?, This had a bit of potential, started off decent and plummeted quicker than throwing a coin off a top floor from a building. The acting was decent and the character of Peter Vincent who seems to be a reality tv ghost hunter. The special effects were good but would be suitable for background noise imo.
