Jaws 40th Anniversary showing

Saw it yesterday. I missed seeing it in the theater in 1975, so it was a treat to go. It's also going to be shown on the 24th. My wife is in Germany this month, so she's missing out (and is pissed about it.)

Saw Trailers

When we went to see Jurassic World. I had forgotten how great it was on the big screen, especially the "Need a bigger boat" scene.

Blows my mind it's been 40 years. Saw it in the theater for 50-cents. Went back and saw it two more times. I still watch it at least once a year.

Shouldn't they re-release Jaws 4 instead, to go along with Jurassic 4?

Wife and I are going tomorrow night, it is one of our favorites. She saw it in the theater when it came out. I was only two at the time so I missed it.

Here's to swimmin with bow-legged women!

Don't forget to have some 'gansett on hand:



My friends put up a big inflatable screen in their backyard Saturday night to celebrate and we even had people dressed up as Brody and Quint.

I saw it in the theater when it came out.

I was 8

For a decade after, i wouldn't put my feet out from under the covers when I was sleeping cuz I KNEW that Jaws was swimming up the hallway to my bedroom and was gonna chew my legs off. Yep, a lasting impression.

Saw it when it came out, I too was 8. That night, I was scared to go into the bathroom by myself for fear that a shark would swim out of the shitter and eat me. Makes no sense, but there it is.

I went to the 40th Anniversary showing with my family this past Sunday, it was freakin' awesome. One of those movies that is a million times better on the big screen.

My 12 year old pointed out that if you watch Jaws backwards, it's a movie about a shark who barfs up so many people that they have to open up a beach.

The first 10 minutes or so it was weird that we had gone through so much trouble to see a movie we have seen dozens of times. By the time Hooper showed up we were fully immersed. Everyone in the theater had seen it before (and probably wished they hadn't) and everyone still jumped or screamed when Ben Gardner's head came in to view. When Jaws pops up behind the boat the second time it got a huge gasp/scream from the crowd. My 11 year old put out her hands! The teenage boy beside me came out of his skin.

My wife and I both noticed things we had never seen before. Quint's mate that is with him at the council meeting and in his shop has a dog. There are two hippies (presumably from the institute) that are helping Hooper load his gear. We had always assumed he had that stuff on his own boat but it makes more sense that he wouldn't. The Orca has a bridge inside the cabin, not just the fly bridge (also makes sense). There is a guy smiling and waving on the beach when everyone is running out after the little Kitner boy and Pippin get eaten. That one guy that swims knocks the kids off the raft still looks exactly like John Ritter.

I'm pretty sure we all had a great time.

...on the cutting room floor...

...was on the Beach on Martha's Vineyard when several scenes were being filmed.

Total random / accidental thing. We'd brought bicycles over from Falmouth to spend the day riding / swimming on the Vineyard, and knew nothing about the filming...or the movie...or much else, for that matter. We were kids, after all, and roamed all over the Cape (and Islands) from sunup to well after sundown, especially mid-week, as my folks both worked off-Cape and such.

Saw the filming of the scene where the raft salad was served. Very cool...they had a diver lying motionless under the surface in pretty shallow water, and just drifted the raft over the top of him (again and again).

Got off our bikes and joined in the crowds sunning and watching. Ran into / out of the water dozens of times...had more run splashing and running over each other in our "panic".

I'm the dude with the cutoffs and a tank top. One of several dozen, I'm sure.

One day I'll screen that scene frame -by- frame to see if any of us ever made the print version.

The impact in 75 was huge- Movies were much bigger in the days of no cable, no internet and three networks.


people wouldnt even go near a POOL

Changed everything in the world of sharks/oceanography, forever
