Yes, Lucus and Spielberg couldn't leave well enough alone. Otherwise, you guys' are daft.

Jaws is not Spielberg's fault. Nor is Star Wars and Lucas. On paper, both should have failed miserably because of the corny story lines and ridiculous low budget SFX.

No-one involved in those movie could have forseen what was going to happen. They blew up beyond belief because they filled a void.

Accept it or not, there's millions of people who go to the movies for a cheap popcorn escape from their daily 24/7 grind.

The fact that they were released in the heat of the summer was not planned either. Just a happy coincedence.

The massive success of the super hyped "Summer Blockbusters" since, has not impeded amazing higher brow cinema in the least. We talk about those types of movies all the time here.

1975
Jaws: One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest, Dog Day Afternoon.

1976
Rocky: Taxi Driver, The Man who Fell to Earth

1977
Star Wars: Eraserhead, The Kentucky Fried Movie

And on and on and on.......

Nah they ruined the film industry on purpose and every modern movie sucks because of them and everyone who disagrees with me is a big doo doo head.

I've got a feeling not many will agree with me on this, but I found it almost entirely unappealing. Biggest movie disappointment of recent memory for me.
Thank you for this review. I bet I'm going to enjoy the **** out of it later. Anytime you pan a movie it is usually really good.
