Honest Trailers Jaws

School’s out, and the 4th of July is right around the corner. That can mean only one thing… Summer Blockbusters! And so the gang at Screen Junkies decided to dedicate today’s Honest Trailer to the original and still in my opinion the best summer blockbuster of all time, Steven Spielberg’s Jaws. If you haven’t seen Jaws… seriously WTF! It’s a 40-year old masterpiece that launched the career of the most decorated director of the past half century. Jaws is my personal choice for “Greatest Horror Movie Ever” and if you don’t agree, have a great swim in the ocean.

So whether you just watched The Shallows in theaters, are enjoying Shark Week on Discovery, or are getting ready for Spielberg’s latest film (The BFG), sit back, relax and enjoy the Honest Trailer for Jaws.

Quint (Robert Shaw) In JAWS

Bethesda’s Fallout 4 has been out almost two months now already and, apart from a small group of gamers who decided it was going to be cool to hate on this installment of the hit game franchise, fans of the series have been happily lost in and wandering the post-apocalyptic wasteland of the Commonwealth, discovering countless secrets and surprises and treats and treasures along the way. One such treat is a little Easter Egg referencing the Steven Spielberg classic JAWS.

Usually when I share an Easter Egg here at Geeks of Doom, it’s something I found while exploring the ‘net. For this particular Easter Egg, however, I actually stumbled upon it myself while exploring the Commonwealth in my own personal Fallout adventure. That’s not to say I’m the first to find it of course—I have no doubt that many have found and shared it online already. But if you’ve not yet seen it I took a bunch of snapshots including where you can find it in the game. You can check those out below!

Holiday Music Gift Guide 2015

The holidays have dawned upon us again and it seems as if the unveiling of them gets sooner and sooner each year. In a world that has seen one of its toughest and tragic years in 2015, the beauty of the holidays is more than a traditional, religious bent, but more about the communion of people and the act of humanity that seems to crawl from the cobwebs only during this time for some people. Regardless of the volume rate, whenever something can collectively bond people together with a sense of energy that runs placid and empathetic, there’s something to be said about the perennial emotion that gets reserved for this time of year. And of course with this year, comes the giving and receiving of gifts and good cheer. And as is my wont for the past few years now, I too have been rather perennial in my choices for key music items to bestow upon good friends and loved ones this time of year. So here’s some picks for this some of this years A-list offerings in music. As usual, this list goes to eleven.

Here’s the Holiday Geek Gift Guide 2015 for Music

‘JAWS 19’ Trailer Released For ‘Back To The Future’ 30th Anniversary

JAWS 19 in Back to the Future Part II

There’s a scene in Back to the Future Part II most of you will recall in which Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) arrives in the year 2015 and is frightened by a promotion for JAWS 19. The time-traveling sequel was released in 1989, two years after the third sequel to Steven Spielberg’s original 1975 classic JAWS was released. Thankfully, as it turns out, Back to the Future Part II was not prophetic, and that fourth murderous shark movie was the last (so far anyway…we all dread the day the word “reboot” becomes latched onto the franchise, unlike the currently protected Back to the Future franchise).

While the movie isn’t happening anytime soon, Universal Pictures decided to have a little fun in celebration of the release of the Back to the Future 30th Anniversary Trilogy later this month by making a special trailer for JAWS 19. You can check out what a promotion for the movie might look like below.

Experiencing ‘Jaws’ In The Theater 40 Years Later

Roy Scheider in Jaws

When I was 16, I got my first job, as an usher at the local movie theater. My plan was simple: exploit my position and the modest $5.15 minimum wage salary to both pad my budding DVD collection (DVDs were new in 1998), and see as many new movies as possible for free. Mission accomplished. More than half my life later I have a very respectable collection, and STILL get in for free occasionally at that theater. I can honestly estimate that I’ve seen hundreds of movies in the theater. All those experiences were great… well, no… there was Wild Wild West.

But they all pale in comparison to 7:00 pm Sunday night, when I got to sit and watch Jaws on the big screen with my family, and hundreds of adoring fans. The screening was part of the recently announced 40th anniversary screenings.

‘Jaws’ Celebrates Its 40th Anniversary!

Jaws Movie Poster

Jaws, which remains one of the (pun intended) high water benchmarks in the history of Hollywood, and is one of the scariest, sharply written, directed, acted, and not to mention edited films ever created, celebrates its 40th birthday today.

There are so many genres which owe tips of the hat to this film, what it has done to the pop cultural landscape, the standard it has set for the contemporary modern thriller, the blueprint for aquatic water thrillers, not to mention solidifying the career of Steven Spielberg, who made this film just he was creeping into his 30th year. Coupled with the powerhouse acting triad of Roy Scheider, Richard Dreyfuss, and Robert Shaw, and the memorable and now Hollywood folklore two-note heart-stopping theme by John Williams, there isn’t really much left to say about Jaws that hasn’t already been written, scrutinized, dissected, and most importantly, enjoyed by countless generations. But yet, despite all of this, Jaws still has plenty to say in all four corners of what it is and what it remains.

Oscars Retrospective: Best Picture Losers That Should Have Won Academy Awards

jaws poster Oscars loser

If your favorite movie of 2014 leaves Oscar Sunday a loser, have no fear. History suggests that the Academy Award losers have just as good a chance to become all-time classics as the winners. Granted, sometimes, the Academy gives the little golden statue to the right film. No one is going to argue The Godfather (1972), Casablanca (1942), or Schindler’s List (1993). But seriously, in 20 years is ANYONE gonna remember the overrated message movie of Crash (2005) or even the more recent 21st century silent film, The Artist? I sincerely doubt it. In fact, on 2007’s American Film Institute’s 100 Greatest Films (10-year edition), 14 out the top 20 were NOT Best Picture winners, some not even nominated.

So here’s a brief list of some of the greatest Academy Award Best Picture losers of all time.

The 50 Greatest ‘Jaws’ Quotes

jaws-poster-image

As we celebrate America’s birthday today, let’s harken back to a film that remains the classic Summer July 4th picture, the legendary thriller Jaws. Since the summer of 1975, the film has remained a pop culture phenomenon to moviegoers the world over. Like two films in one — the first one on land when the inhabitants of Amity Island are forced to deal with a predator that’s slowly devouring its citizens one by one, to the three men (Chief Brody, Matt Hooper, and salty sea veteran Quint) going out to sea to try and catch the shark singlehandedly — Jaws is an absolute memorable classic of the history of the cinema.

So now, in the film’s chronological order, are 50 of the greatest quotes — highly memorable ones and some obscure ones, but all are benchmarks of the films dialogue and narrative. Some are purposely left out so you can add your favorites below. And “You’re Gonna Need A Bigger Boat” I’ll put right here, it’s one of the most oft-repeated lines of the film, and was ad-libbed by Roy Scheider. Also the centerpiece of the movie, the Indianapolis Speech, is not here either, as that’s an incredible monologue, and almost impossible to pull a quote from. This list could have been 100 quotes probably, but for that, “I’m gonna need a bigger column.”
