Vin Diesel remembers Paul Walker.
What not to watch this week. Our tv magazine rates shows and movies using a star system: one star is ok, four stars is best. They use another symbol for really bad movies: the red dot. It means "à zapper" (change the channel!). The editors often include comments about the movie that make me laugh.
It's shark-tastic! This week's bomb is "Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark." I just realized as I typed this that "mecha" must be short for "mechanical" as I read that the premise of the film is the construction of a giant mechanical shark to do battle with a giant real shark that threatens the lives of humanity.
Mega Shark vs Mecha Shark. American made-for-tv movie. Directed by Emile Edwin Smith, 2014. First showing.
With Christopher Judge, Elisabeth Röhm, Matt Lagan, and Hannah Levien.
A giant shark threatens humanity. The government creates a robot copy of the monster to confront it.
► An improbable bomb of a film, badly acted and badly directed, but which, in going all the way to absurdity, becomes frequently hilarious.
For adults and teenagers over ten.
