My Top 3 Jaws Scenes

don't go in the water in Jaws

I rewatched Jaws recently. I had been wanting to for a while but seeing as how its Shark Week I thought hey fortuitous timing!

Honestly the film still holds up. It has been awhile since I’ve seen it. Though Googling tells me I have a shockingly good hold on the shark and “other things that will kill you in the water” film genre.

But below my 3 favorite scenes in the film. This is spoiler territory…

Blind Spot July: Fast Times at Ridgemont High

Sean Penn as Spicoli

My Blind Spot movie kind of picked itself this month with the multiple mentions it got in Stranger Things I decided to finally sit down and watch Fast Times at Ridgemont high. It had it’s moments- mainly Sean Penn’s iconic turn as checked out drugged out Spicoli.

It feels very much like a movie of its time though.

Please Pass the Parachute

Airplane!

Airplane!

Directed By: Jerry Zucker, David Zucker & Jim Abrahams

Grade: D

Airplane! was my Blind Spot pick for July and first of all I want to say that humor is different for everyone. Plus I really did try to think of this movie (like all of them) in the context of its time period (1980)… but at this point I don’t believe I can entirely do that. I also tried to honestly consider if I would have liked this movie better ten years ago.

Probably not.
