    ★★★★

    Yeah, that's right. Four stars. Seriously.
    I will have to elaborate later - right now I'm just too happy. I had a blast. I didn't think I would, since shark movies always disappoint me.
    But I loved it! Hahahhhh, I actually did. No, it's not perfect. Only Jaws is, and only Jaws will ever be.

    Okay, I … I don’t know if the obvious problems in almost every single scene or if the insane amount of Oscar nominations are the stupidest thing about this movie.
    First of all, Alfonso Cuarón already made an entirely green movie with ”Great Expectations” in 1998. Nothing new about that. On top of which the plot seems to be stolen from a play from 1969, on top of which this is obviously not bringing new ideas apart from that as…
