A to Z Blogging Challenge: Movie Memories
Blogging about the movies that made an impact on my life
I met my hubby in the year of Jaws (1975). It was our second date movie, the first being Shampoo. I was 18 and we were in love. We got married the following year and have been happily married for 34 years.
At the time, my future hubby was into tropical fish. I remember coming back from the movie and watching his fish swimming in the tank, thinking to myself, "I hope sharks don't hold grudges against fish owners." You, know, release of the captives and all that jazz.
The fact that we lived in the land-locked Rocky Mountains didn't really enter into the equation.
When I studied film in college, Jaws was used as an example of masterful filmmaking: action, drama, compelling characters, visual motifs, cinematography, internal conflict, strong dialog and superb performances.
If you ever get a chance, watch The Making of Jaws. It shows how Spielberg made the movie. Fascinating.
