The Meg is Closer to ‘Jaws’ Than ‘Sharknado’

MOVIE REVIEW When Steven Spielberg’s Jaws opened in theaters in 1975, it took the world by storm.

When Jaws 2 came to theaters three years later, everyone knew the catchphrase, “Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water…” Since then, it’s been hard for movie studios to be able to drum up the same excitement with their own Jaws knock-offs.

Superchick Releases Bittersweet ‘Recollection’ Next Week

Over the years, the band has seen five of their songs reach No. 1 on music charts. One of those songs, “Stand in the Rain” held the spot for nine weeks on R&R Christian Hit Radio charts.


According to a recent press release, the original vision for the music was to be comprised on just one “chick” but soon grew into a small army of nonconformists who believed that they had the ability to affect change. Even if you think that you’ve never heard any of the band’s music before, more than likely, you have. Superchick’s music has been heard in nearly 200 movies, TV show and even video games.
