Reviews of movies from my giant DVD tower, and more.
I’m no longer having ‘Jaws Month’ here at the Monolith, but that doesn’t mean I’m not taking part in my annual ‘Jaws Night’ festivities…where for the 21st consecutive year I’m watching Jaws on the 4th of July. Tonight I’m watching it with my friend Julie, who hasn’t seen the film since it hit theaters in 1975, and trust me, it’s been fun seeing her jump and laugh and gasp at scenes that she doesn’t remember, and are now once again new to her.
And watching the Blu-ray, I’m still spotting things in the foreground and background I’ve never noticed before, such as: who are all those people sitting on chairs in the far background of the scene where the ferry leaves the dock, carrying Brody and Mayor Vaughn? And why are they there?
So for those of you enjoying Jaws tonight, trying your best not to have a panic on your hands on the 4th of July, I hope you’re having as much fun as I am watching my favorite movie of all time. I mean, seriously, what else would you rather be doing?
