On this week’s episode of The Geek Awakens, I watched Jaws. As a kid, I remember my mom telling me that it scared her so much that she avoided the beach for days (she loves to rock a good tan, so this was a big sacrifice).
If you’ve seen this show before, you know I don’t like scary movies. Watching Jaws was never a priority for me. But I’m glad I did.
Was it scary? YES! But I was also really impressed. The story was great, it was action-packed, and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.
Will I ever go to the beach again? Probably not. But sand is gross, so I’m OK with it.
In the last episode of TGA, I watched The NeverEnding Story for the first time, and it was weird… in an ’80s sort of way.
