    Re: JAWS!

    Jaws was on ESPN last night, he was talking about Quarterbacks. Like who has the best quarterback in the NFL, and which team needs a new quarterback. A couple teams can't decide which quarterback is their best quarterback. In order to be successful, a team needs good production from the quarterback position. Fascinating stuff.

    Re: JAWS!

    Read an article (well, most of an article) on why Jaws was so scary. Part of it is that the shark normally attacks from the right side of the screen. We're conditioned to watch from the left, so it's especially jarring.

    Can't make it tonight and haven't seen it since I read the article. If anyone goes, I'm interested to see if that's accurate.

    I'm pretty sure it is all of those teeth that makes the fish scary, not if he is left or right-handed...er...finned.

    You might be right. CHiPs gave me the willies, too. Erik Estrada had like a thousand teeth.

    Re: JAWS!

    I wish AMC in Omaha would pick up on these. I would love to see some of these classics in the theater. I really want to go see the double feature of Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein in October. I'm willing to drive to Jordan Creek for that one.

    A few years ago they showed Alien in the theater for the 35 aniversary or something. I had never seen it in the theater so I went to see that.
    I also heard they remastered Raiders of the Lost Ark for IMAX.
