Jaws

Today I fulfill my childhood dream to see Jaws at the movie theater. (^^^)11061665_10206701120227628_234569734374317522_n
I can still recall the anger and frustration I felt being told I was too young and the movie would give me nightmares. The annual viewing of a tornado in our neighboring state sweeping away a young woman to a place where they make her sing slow earworms while creepy flying monkeys try to kill her is totally okay but a shark, in an ocean far, far away, protecting itself against an insane ship captain and drunk dudes taunting it with roast beef is not? Oh I had nightmares alright! nightmare of cruel adults in their ridiculously unbreathable plaid polyester repeating “because I said so” over and over. Shudder.
But finally those nightmares can stop and I will see and hear “you’re going to need a bigger boat” (while I wonder why the hell they didn’t take Hooper’s fancy one in the first place) with popcorn and from the height and width it was meant to be shown. Finally.
