New Home Video and Video Game Releases – Week of January 1, 2012

Featured Release: Shark Night 3D


For those of us who work at Universal Studios Florida, yesterday was a sad day.  January 2nd marked the closing of the Jaws attraction.  So for those of you mourning the shuttering of Captain Jake’s Amity Boat Tours, one way to commemorate is by checking out Shark Night 3D.

Following in the footsteps of the cinematic classic Piranha 3D, it’s got man-eating creatures that live in water – not a natural habitat for our species – yet inexplicably people keep going into the water where those man-eating creatures live.  And the ladies somehow think the sharks will be distracted by the fact that they’re topless.  Sharks don’t care about your titties!  If Dr. Hooper taught us anything, all they do is swim, eat, and make baby sharks.

Alright, who am I kidding?  This movie looks like a pile of garbage.  You want a great shark movie in 3-D?  Need we forget Jaws 3-D?  Filmed right here in Orlando at SeaWorld.  Remember when the shark at Lou Gossett, Jr.?  Classic.

So, in conclusion…  Jaws ride = Gone.  Jaws 3D = Needing a Criterion Collection remastering.  Shark Night 3D = Out today on DVD.

Shark Night 3D is available in stores today.
