It's the unabbreviated form of "the Meg."

Wasnt that the shark movie released recently? Was it terrible enough to be called "the meg, by Lucifer, because fuck humanity?" I would never pay to see such tripe, of course, and i kinda just assumed it was as awful as it was regularly advertised.

I've already had it spoiled for me that Jason Statham does not, in fact, punch a Megalodon.

I heard it was actually pretty good. Didn't see it though.

I'm watching the original V TV series (1980s) and man, is this thing full of some dumb writing.

The show is about space lizards who wear fake human skin to blend in as humans. Now, two humans had infiltrated the alien mothership, and when they were recognized as resistance fighters they basically said, "but we're lizards too" and pulled off their human-masks to show lizard heads underneath. Then, after the baddies let them go, then they hid, and pulled off their lizard-masks to reveal their same human heads underneath.

Now, is it just me, but if you're going to wear two layers of masks why would you make the outer-layer look like your own head? Surely it would have been safer to just make the outer mask look like a different person in the first place? This is about the level of the writing, no wonder it was canceled.

Maybe it's not actual masks, but their faces have alternating layers that they have no conscious control over. You pull off the old lizard layer, revealing the newer human layer underneath. You know, like orges but with faces.

... and later in that episode they recover some secret data from the aliens. You knew it was high-tech alien stuff because it was on a 3.5" floppy disk rather than the 5.25" floppy disks the humans use. I guess at the time this was made 3.5" disks were uncommon stuff so passed for some magical super-tech. No expense spared in television.

i just saw MANOS: Hand of Fate. My God. I knew it was supposed to be bad but still, this movie suprised me. MANOS is just that sort of movie that makes you rethink everything you thought you knew about bad movies.

After that i watched the 1980s Sci Fi movie Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone. Which i was also expecting to be pretty bad. However, it was pleasantly surprised. It holds up especially well for a 35 year old schlocky sci-fi movie, and would be a definite recommend if you want to zone out for 90 minute with a schlocky Mad Max / Star Wars rip off. Plus going straight from Manos to Spacehunter ... it was like another world. Pro-tip: to appreciate average movies more, watch MANOS right before them.

As for Spacehunter: The action, effects, writing, acting are all pretty solid, the production is excellent, the villain is super creepy. Reviews panned it at the time, but mainly by referencing how the recently-released Return of the Jedi was much better. However. it's not necessarily a fair comparison. And it has a cute teenaged Molly Ringwald in it. Star Wars had zero Molly Ringwalds.

Not sure about the other movie Reeyla mentioned, but Manos: The Hands of Fate is available for watching and download on the wikipedia page and probably on youtube as well.
