What is Play the Hits all about? Friday, Saturday night and you just need an easy ride along in the world of cinema; you know that the thing to do would be to challenge yourself or find the meaning of life, however, Rick in Finance was all over your case this week about getting that expense report back in. I get it. I love the award winners as much as others but sometimes we need that 98 minute break (see also Don't Think, Just Laugh nights).
Any time that a premise starts with a giant shark then you know where things are probably heading. The Meg is not anything special but it does have some fun along the way and sends out a vibe that it gets that it knows it isn't in uncharted waters here - pun intended. Jason Statham and crew try mightily and we can see the plot turns pop up before seeing the gianr shark in the distance. However, sometimes a flick is just that - a flick - and it serves the purpose of a mindless ride on the ocean up against a giant shark. We know how things turn out and like it that way for a couple hours because we know Rick will be bugging us on Monday for the expense report again.
