I’ve never said JAWS was a grindhouse movie. It is a B movie, to be sure. It could have played in a grindhouse, I don’t know. When it comes to that, you’re right, you can cover what you feel is best without covering studio pictures that played in grindhouses, and frankly, whichever 42nd theater JAWS may or may not have played in is a moot point right now.
I like the Baracuda/Pirahna double feature comment. See, that’s cool.
Politically correct? Damn you for bringing politics into a film discussion.
And just because I think it bears repeating:
And I’ve been a film fanatic since I was 3. I didn’t know that had a relevance. I love discussing film, and if I can learn something new from my discussion about film, and research what I’ve learned and incorporate it with what I know already, and alter what I know to fit what new thing I’ve learned, I love that. See, I’m humble like that. There’s always more to learn. That’s why I’m a voracious film book reader. I never like to tell anyone, “How dare you tell me any different than what I already know!” It can be a learning experience for both me and the one I’m discussing film with. And then I can pull out whatever book I learned something from or the film we’re discussing and it can become a learning experience for the other person too. You never know, I might be the one who learns something from the other person, it depends.
You, Putney, just aren’t humble like that. I guess you proved you’re the know-it-all, regardless of what you’ve called me in the past.
