Drive-In Movie: Shark Tale 2004, PG

As Santiago begins to see the lights of the city, he acknowledges that if a shark were to attack him, he would be helpless. In this 2017 gem, two sisters (hi, Mandy Moore!!) are on vacation in Mexico when they decide to go shark diving with some sketchy dudes they meet in a bar. Naturally, the chain holding their shark cage breaks, so they get stuck—wait for it—47 meters down and must fight off the bends, faulty air tanks, and, yes, a giant shark. The scientists also found that diet strongly affected extinction risk. Species with teeth adapted for crunching through hard prey (think bottom-dwelling clams and lobsters) were much more likely to go extinct than species that fed on softer prey. The pattern fits with other evidence that suggests that, during the K-Pg event, changes in ocean cycles decimated the small invertebrates at the bottom of the marine food web, and that species relying directly on this part of the food web faced greater chances of extinction.

The research team found that sharks, skates, and rays show the same pattern. The reconstructed geographic ranges of groups that survived the K-Pg mass extinction were larger than the ranges of groups that went extinct. In addition to these shark movies, here are some PG 13 shark movies to watch during Shark Week, Summer, or any time of year.

  • If any movie proves that it’s Renny Harlin’s 1999 thriller in which a motley crew stranded in a marine-biology lab are forced to match wits with sharks genetically engineered to be smarter than the average man-eater.
  • These titles feature TV shows, cult movies, documentaries, and science & nature shows.
  • There’s no need for megalodons or super-intelligent sharks when the garden variety can be this terrifying.
  • Each region will contain them and from the handful that I saw, they look insanely cool.

While surfing, Nancy (Blake Lively) finds herself on the feeding ground of a great white shark. The rating box will include specific reasons that the MPAA issued the rating to the movie. Overall, some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.

Shark Tale (

Science tells us that, contrary to popular opinion, we’re far more likely to be killed by an angry cow than a hungry shark, who aren’t so much of a threat to humans as we are to them. Of course, these basic facts are no use for building great aquatic horror, with everything from Jaws to Sharknado emphasising the awesome might and toothy terror of the black eyed beast of the sea. The shark detected the blood from the marlin and followed the trail to the skiff. After struggling with the approaching shark, the old man maims him. However, the shark has already torn apart and devoured 40 pounds of Santiago’s marlin. In the process, the shark also takes the old man’s harpoon and rope.

Mega Shark Versus Giant Octopus

The more humans you consume, the higher your wanted level will become, meaning deadlier hunters will quickly roll out onto the waters. If you’re not fitted to take them on you’ll be killed pretty quickly it seems. It’s definitely cool to be an unstoppable force through as you literally tear through boats and hunters. Right now I can only imagine how much chaos will ensue once you’re fully upgraded.

Shark Tale

When sisters Lisa (Mandy Moore) and Kate (Claire Holt) decide to spice up their Mexican vacation with a little scuba diving, what could go wrong? Sure, Lisa doesn’t really know what she’s doing, the dive includes being submerged in a cage, and the sketchy tour guides (who include Matthew Modine) chum the waters to attract sharks to make the experience more interesting. It’s the smallest possible spoiler to say no, they won’t be — particularly once the chain to their diving cage breaks, sending the sisters (you guessed it) 47 meters down to the bottom of the ocean.

I love romance novels, bourbon, and canceling plans so I can watch Lost for the 50th time. This movie will not only make you terrified of the water, but also cruise ships (lol). Danny Trejo, Karrueche Train, and Rob Van Dam must try and protect the cruise ship they’re on that gets attacked by a mutated shark. Mind you, this shark has already eaten one end of the ship and they must stop it from—eating the whole damn thing, ofc. The premise of this movie is ridiculous—a beautiful girl goes surfing alone in a secluded cove and ends up on a rock fighting for survival before the tide comes in—but the execution is flawless.

If any movie proves that it’s Renny Harlin’s 1999 thriller in which a motley crew stranded in a marine-biology lab are forced to match wits with sharks genetically engineered to be smarter than the average man-eater. Harlin leads a wet all-star cast that includes Stellan Skarsgard and LL Cool J through some memorable shark encounters, but it’s Samuel L. Jackson’s big scene laying out just how much danger they’re in and the formidability of their finned opponents that makes it so memorable. If you’ve seen the scene, you know why the moment works so well.
