Before we dive right in, here are a few fun facts about sharks….
- Sharks can use heartbeats to track their prey.
- Sharks help keep the populations of smaller fish in check.
- The average shark has 40-45 teeth and can have up to seven rows of replacement teeth. Because sharks lose a lot of teeth and grow them back quickly, they often go through more than 30,000 teeth in a lifetime.
- Some South Pacific islanders considered sharks to be gods and offered human sacrifices to them until as recently as the nineteenth century.
OK, let’s slide right in…
That just got really dark… I’m sorry!
6. The Shallows
5. Open Water
This movie was limited on its scenic views; it takes place right out in the middle of the ocean. After watching this movie, you will have a minor fear of doing water activities when on vacation.
4. Finding Nemo
Nemo’s sweet dad, comes across some a group of sharks that are recovering carnivores, and were turning a new leaf at becoming vegetarian. Well kinda.. 🙂
This movie is so cheesy and horrible, it’s actually a good time!
It’s like a train wreck, but you just can’t look away.. The horrid acting and unlimited supplies of sharks being thrown around make this EPIC!
2. Deep Blue Sea
With Samuel L Jackson, Thomas Jane and LL Cool J; this takes place at a scientific research lab that is out in the middle of the ocean: Where they are using Sharks for a possible cure for Alzheimer and lets just say, it all goes to hell in a handbasket!
Of course what other classic shark film would top our list other then Spielberg’s Jaws! Anytime the word SHARK is spoken/thought of, this movie is the first to come to mind.
Who can forget one of the most famous lines from it:
Hopefully you will forget any of these movies the next time you go in for a quick dip in the ocean..
