Michael Garcia - September 7, 2016


Let's face it this past summer movie season sucked. There were very few good movies of either the big blockbuster variety or the quality indie genre. It's just been one flop or mediocrity after another. So, Hollywood put their collective minds together and thought, "What does an american audience want to see?" The answer is a combination of a patriotic war movie, a shark horror film, and anything starring Nicolas Cage. We get USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage. It's like a mash-up of Saving Private Ryan, Snake Eyes, and Sharknado. It tells the true story of the USS Indianapolis, the ship that delivered the atomic bomb used on Hiroshima during WWII that was later sunk by the Japanese. A thousand or so sailors went into the water and very few survived, mostly eaten by sharks. You may recall this was the basis of the famous Quint monologue in the original Jaws. 

So, who do they get to star in this movie? Nicolas Cage. He screams and overacts his way through a movie that looks to be a giant ball of schlock.
