If you missed last night’s Jaws screening at the Revue, you missed a fine old time at the movies. You can relive it, sort of, by listening to Paul’s episode of the podcast, but of course it’s never the same as the live experience.

Anyway, it was a great night and a reminder that movies can bring people together for unique and wonderful experiences, even movies that are 44 years old and have a big fiberglass shark in them. Seriously. I love that movie so much.

This week’s offerings seem unlikely to have that sort of impact, but one of them does have sharks, so there’s that. Let’s get to it.
