If you’ve read many of my blog posts, you’ve probably noticed that I love sharks! In fact, Jaws is my favorite movie. But what is so great about it? (Aside from a big shark eating people of course…)
What makes any story a good one?
|Ellen Brody: "Martin hates boats.|
Martin hates water."
The guy you love to hate:
|Quint: "$10,000 for me by myself.|
For that you get the head, the tail, the whole damn thing."
|Spielberg and Bruce, the infamous malfunctioning |
mechanical shark. Much of the film had to be shot from the
perspective of the shark rather than film the shark itself.
|Mayor Vaughn: "Amity is a summer town.|
We need summer dollars."
|Brody: "You're gonna need a bigger boat."|
Scares, blood, and that holy shit moment: I won’t give these away with pics. If you haven’t seen the movie, just go rent it!
What other elements do you think make a great story?
