Thanks.I feel old enough when I wake up, without this kinda shit! LolMovies used to be pretty awesome, for the most part, huh.These days, I look at the listings a couple times a year, and there is nothing even slightly interesting to go see.
Timbo, I haven't been to the movies in years. Same reason.
I was eight when it came out. For a while afterward I couldn’t go swimming except for maybe a crystal clear pool where you could see the bottom.

Ya know Chrissie had dandruff, right?They found her Head & Shoulders on the beach...
I just watched it again yesterday. It was the beginning of my crush on Richard Dreyfuss, and also responsible for the fact that I lived 20+ years within walking distance of the beach and NEVER went in the water.
That Indy speech is like holy liturgy or something. Will never forget it. And what a master Robert Shaw was in the role of Quint. Just 2 years later he did it again in The Deep, which was actually very entertaining. Not just because it featured a very young Jacqueline Bisset underwater in a white teeshirt.
I just watched it with my kids two weeks ago. It was kinda fun explaining what effect this movie had on the world.
I had an aunt and uncle who owned a small "mom and pop' motel (and a few other small businesses) in Panama City Beach, Florida during those years. My uncle hated that movie and the ones that followed. He said the movies actually had a negative impact on their business. I was nine when the movie debuted. It was one of the few films I got to see in a theater growing up (The nearest theater was forty-five minutes) from my home. I liked it then and will still watch it from time to time.
I think we're gonna need a longer memory!gfa
