A true classic here that withstands the test of time IMO. I recently watched as well and it's just great story telling and cinematography, back in the days where they had 'flat' vs 'cinemascope' and Spielberg took it very seriously making for some very dramatic shots.A bit late to the plate for a traditional summer re-watch... but hey, it's still warm outside so I downloaded Jaws from HBO Max for this evening's film fare.
I remember when it came out. Rated R. I had just turned 17, my senior year in high school so I could go see it without dragging the parents along. I went with a friend from school who was only 16. I was her accompanying adult. Mind you, she was 8 months pregnant at the time. There were a few points in the movie where she jumped so high I thought we’d be delivering the baby right there in the theater!A bit late to the plate for a traditional summer re-watch... but hey, it's still warm outside so I downloaded Jaws from HBO Max for this evening's film fare.
Did you happen to catch The Last Black Man in San Francisco? It's on Amazon Prime, excellent movie IMO.

Sounds right up myWatched The Devil All the Time that dropped on Netflix today. Really good but it can be a rough watch, especially if you are Christian. Without spoiling anything really I'll just say it showcases Christians doing very unChristian things under the guise of Christianity. It also kind of reminded me of a Tarantino movie in that there are multiple storylines that tie together in the end.
I wouldn't really say it's a condemnation of Christianity across the board, but more saying their are bad actors in the faith or people taking their faith to extremes. However, if you did recommend it as just a good movie to a hardcore Christian I could see how they would see it as an attack on them.
To help assuage the stress of RBG's passing, I watched something that was purely entertaining: "Spectre", which I hadn't seen before. I'd DVRed it off of FX and it was sitting there just waiting for me in my time of need.
Good film, too. I'd seen some reviews that made it sound disappointing. It wasn't.
I've never been a person to use come-on lines with woman, but there was one quip in this movie that I know I'll always remember. It's when Dr. Swann, in a slinky skin-tight dress, notices Bond ogling her:
You shouldn't stare.
You shouldn't look like that.
