  1. Sharknado seems to have taken over genre fandom–to hear both you and the Coode Street Podcast talk about seems ironclad proof. 😉

    Patrick, the “remake” of Jaws was “Deep Blue Sea.”

    Jaws wasn’t the movie that got me it was Jaws: The Revenge, which was like number 5 in the series or something. I watched “Jaws: The Revenge” with my grandparnets, I was only about 8 at the time. They took me to see a double feature of “Inner Space” and “Jaws Revenge,” I don’t think they realized what “Jaws Revnege” was and probably figured, “hey its a double feature its cheep and it will entertain or grandchild, let’s go see some movies.” Of course after I saw this movie about a massive shart eating people in the ocean, my grandparents took me to the beach for a week, and had me go and play in the water. I can still remember being out on a bogey board thinking, “please don’t let there be in sharks out here, please don’t let there be any sharks out here,” as I looked around for dorsal fins. After I caught a wave and came in I did not go back into the water all week.

    Thanks for the Music clips by the way they are Awesome!
