84. Getting snatched up by a shark mid-monologue
As Seen In: Deep Blue Sea (1999)
"Nature can be lethal, but it doesn't hold a candle to man." That's just a small part of the tongue-in-cheek pretentiousness heard in Samuel L. Jackson's nearly minute-long monologue in Deep Blue Sea. When the super-engineered shark finally pops up to cut Sammy's extended dialogue moment short, it really shouldn't be a surpriseâ€”after all, he's standing right next to a water hole the entire time.
Still, it's Samuel L. Jackson, the biggest name in a cast that also includes LL Cool J and Michael Rapaport. He can't die so early into the movie, right? Well, as the above image makes clear, yes. Yes he can. And, presuming you're able to accept the cheesy CGI, it's quite a jolt.
