Jaws

Recommended Posts

The Jaws ride at Universal was great. I'll never get why they scrapped it.

 

I do think they'll bring it back one day and when they do it'll be the most popular ride in the park.

Seen that their showing this at my local cinema in the next few weeks, tempted to see it on the big screen now.

 

One of those films I never bore of despite seeing it a couple times a year at least, if it was on right now I’d happily watch it.

Same. See also: Pulp Fiction, Shawshank Redemption, Goodfellas, Kellys Heroes and Cocktail

There's a new Jaws board game out, playable in two acts. One player gets to play as the shark:

That looks fucking brilliant. Imagine the fights if you and your mates played that pissed. 

 

"You bit me"

 

"I'm a shark you cunt thats the fucking aim of the game"

 

"Yeah on the board you have actually just bitten me"

 

"I'm a fucking shark!"

 

"Yer maa's a fucking whale"

 

BANG

I won't watch that because I've ordered a copy of the book to read next.

45 year old spoiler alerts!

Yeah don't tell me the plot.

 

I'll never forget when @Fowlers God said he went to watch Jurassic World but didn't think much of the storyline...

Saw that the book is currently 99p on the Amazon Kindle store at the weekend, bought it and have started reading it again since.

 

(Had a copy of the paperback when a kid but can’t remember it being so long ago and surprised how different it is to the film already)

 

Brody’s marriage troubles, dodgy business dealings from residents, Ellen’s flirting with an affair and her longing for her formally privileged upbringing.

 

The shark is barley a footnote at parts!!

 

Really enjoying it so far.

Haha fuck me mate I got it off eBay at the start of the month for about 2.50. I'm just over half way through it. Far more detail about the characters etc. Ellen is a slag!

It’s great isn’t it.

 

A lot more depth to it than I remember and I’m half way through also, just finished the dinner party bit earlier.

 

Great book, Ellen better not shag Hooper!!

Finished the book last night. 

 

Quint is one of the coolest motherfuckers of all time 

Finished it earlier also.

 

Ends a bit suddenly but loved it still, great book and great differences in the film.

Hahaha Hooper the little fucker. Cant believe Ellen though I nearly threw my book across the room. Then considered a wank over her. Did neither.

The end, that last page wound me up. Did the shark even fucking die? Spielberg managed to make a film far better than the book. Very rare that happens. 

 

Boss book though.
