I cannot believe Jaws is 40 years old this year. To this day I have great memories of this film, I still paraphrase a couple things from this movie like “should of got a bigger boat” when something goes tits up. I remember Brody and his son playing the shadow game at their kitchen table and the photo with the shark’s peering black eye or when Brody gets a slap, I could go on but I won’t.
I am sure I was too young to watch the movie when I did way back when and this may now have something to do with my fear of deep water, even in the swimming pool, but hey I still watch Jaws and Jaws 2. I get the same feelings as I used to… shit scared with butterflies in the pit of my stomach. I must admit I do then feel a little too overjoyed when they eventually kick the shark’s ass, sorry spoiler alert! Actually if you didn’t know that and you haven’t seen Jaws where have you been???
Ok well Im off to put the kettle on, grab some popcorn and put my feet up to watch this movie again.
Thank you for the everlasting da-dum da-dum da-dumda-dumda-dum— you know the rest x.
