Tcm is having a spielberg-fest lately, so I caught Jaws again tonight for like the fiftieth time tonight during my half-asleep post-work quiet time that I must have every night. I guess that qualifies as a nap, and I should be lamenting the fact that I now need a daily nap. It sure does feel nice tho ='.'= *yawns*
Jaws is not a movie that has any hidden meanings, any subtle hints of dimensions only unlocked after several viewings or anything like that. The characters dont get any deeper, you dont understand anyone further, nothing. At least I dont. I know everything now about the film that i knew the first time I saw it. The old skipper was on the Indianapolis. It was rough. Now roll out the shark again!
That's what i love about it, it's a monster movie, plain and simple. It does it well tho, and that's the reason that Ive been able to watch and enjoy it so many times.
