Crazy, Meg


"Crazy Rich Asians" is billed as a rom-com, and is really more of a straight up romance with a few comic relief characters. We enjoyed it a great deal, and there was one minor trick in the climactic scene that absolutely blind-sided us, which doesn't happen very often.

"The Meg" isn't just relentlessly stupid, it's epically stupid. Which is a shame, because the cast is decent, and the monster has a great deal of potential if played absolutely straight. (Megalodons are pretty much the least improbable cryptid in the list; creatures that are about the size of a whale, are invisible to sonar, have no need to ever surface, and sink to the bottom when they die are REALLY hard to disprove.) The possibility of a GOOD megalodon movie exists, I think, but this was very much not it.
