Shark week is finally upon us, and if you're anything like us you abandon everything that's important to you in life to dedicate yourself fully to shark stuff.
Our favorite thing to do during Shark Week is watch shark movies. Our second favorite thing to do is imagine what movies we already love would be like if they had sharks in them.
Grab a bucket of popcorn, spread some chum around your living room, and strap in for the best five reimagined shark movies of your life.
A true classic. The movie follows the story of a man who is trying to figure out what went wrong in his relationship with a shark. It's a perfect combination of Woody Allen's neurotic humor and the horrifying violence of sharks.
Ever wonder what's it's like seeing the world through the eyes of a slow-witted yet loveable shark? The movie spans years in the life of Shark Gump as he is enlisted to fight in the Vietnam War alongside human soldiers, befriends a shark named Lieutenant Shark who goes on to lose his fins, and falls in love with, marries, and raises the child of a beautiful yet wild female shark who tragically dies of SHARKAIDS.
There's something truly charming about the pairing of Wesley Snipes and Shark in this movie. While the dialogue between the two is often stilted due to the shark's inability to speak, the movie is full of laughs, touching moments, and brutal shark violence. It's a must-see for Shark Week.
Thought of by many as the pinnacle in shark cinema, Casasharka follows the lives of two political refugees who seek the help of a jaded shark, Rick Shark (played by Shark Bogart), who owns a nightclub in Casasharka. Pay close attention as the film presents a number of historically accurate moments of sharks involvement in WWII.
Our personal favorite on the list. A movie about a shark (played by Shark Sharkins) wrongly convicted of the murder of his wife, and how he learns to survive in a corrupt prison system with the help of his friend Red (played by Shark Sharkman). It's a gorgeous portrayal of a shark learning to accept his situation while maintaining hope for the future by biting a tunnel through the prison walls, covered up by a poster of Rita Sharkworth.
