    FYI: there's a movie about the USS Indianapolis (Mission of the Shark). It's decent, but it's darned depressing.
    Bah. I'll do it. Very important part of the movie's bromance and especially Quint's psyche.

    Jaws
    screenplay written by Peter Benchley & Carl Gottlieb / Indianapolis speech written by uncredited writers Howard Sackler, John Milius, and Robert Shaw
    Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss): "You were on the Indianapolis?"
    Brody (Roy Scheider): "What happened?"
    Quint: "Japanese submarine slammed two torpedoes into our side, chief. It was comin' back, from the island of Tinian to Laytee, just delivered the bomb. The Hiroshima bomb. Eleven hundred men went into the water. Vessel went down in twelve minutes. Didn't see the first shark for about a half an hour. Tiger. Thirteen footer. You know how you know that when you're in the water, chief? You tell by lookin' from the dorsal to the tail. What we didn't know... was our bomb mission had been so secret, no distress signal had been sent. Huh huh. They didn't even list us overdue for a week. Very first light, chief. The sharks come cruisin'. So we formed ourselves into tight groups. You know it's... kinda like ol' squares in battle like a, you see on a calendar, like the battle of Waterloo. And the idea was, the shark comes to the nearest man and that man, he'd start poundin' and hollerin' and screamin' and sometimes the shark would go away. Sometimes he wouldn't go away. Sometimes that shark, he looks right into you. Right into your eyes. You know the thing about a shark, he's got...lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll's eye. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be livin'. Until he bites ya and those black eyes roll over white. And then, ah then you hear that terrible high pitch screamin' and the ocean turns red and spite of all the poundin' and the hollerin' they all come in and rip you to pieces.
    Y'know by the end of that first dawn, lost a hundred men! I don't know how many sharks, maybe a thousand! I don't know how many men, they averaged six an hour. On Thursday mornin' chief, I bumped into a friend of mine, Herbie Robinson from Cleveland. Baseball player, boson's mate. I thought he was asleep, reached over to wake him up. Bobbed up and down in the water, just like a kinda top. Up ended. Well... he'd been bitten in half below the waist. Noon the fifth day, Mr. Hooper, a Lockheed Ventura saw us, he swung in low and he saw us. He's a young pilot, a lot younger than Mr. Hooper, anyway he saw us and come in low. And three hours later a big fat PBY comes down and start to pick us up. You know that was the time I was most frightened? Waitin' for my turn. I'll never put on a lifejacket again. So, eleven hundred men went in the water, three hundred and sixteen men come out, the sharks took the rest, June the 29, 1945. Anyway, we delivered the bomb."

    • Gone Girl - This was pretty good, but I was disappointed that there were all kind of plot holes in the film and things that were left unexplained.

      No man in his right mind, and under any circumstances would stay with that psychopath.

        I thought this was going to be a Gun-fu version of Limitless. It wasn't. Instead, this film becomes a weird scifi take on the human brain reaching 100% of it potential. For me, the more Lucy's brain capacity increases, the more the film crosses over to the goofy side. Therefore the ending became unsatisfying for me.

        2/5

            • I've seen this movie a couple of times now, and I have to admit that I liked it. I've never been a fan of Marvel, but I do like Captain America (+ a few lesser knowns on their roster). I can't wait to dig into the new comic series!

                What kid? How did she become pregnant in the first place? They never had sex again. Nick received a letter in the mail stating the sperm sample was destroyed. The only thing she could have done was to fake another pregnancy by using her neighbor's urine. Again.

                • SPOILER ALERT:

                  The letter Nick got said that if he didn't respond the sperm would be destroyed. He then goes on to tell Margo that he didn't respind to the letter and left it for Amy to take care of. That is how Amy got the sperm.

                    The issue here is that Amy would need a doctor to perform the artificial insemination, and with that, she would need Nick's consent. In addition, the success rate of that procedure is between 5 to 20%, so even if she somehow got away with the insemination, it's a crapshoot at best.

                      You're missing the fact that Amy is a crazy smart bitch. She would lie, plan, cheat, steal and murder to get her way. She could have hired someone to be Nick and found a doctor in another town. If there was a way to do something, she would find it, like getting the urine from her pregnant neighbor.

                      I think the whole point of the movie was to demonstrate the lengths that Amy would do to get her way. I mean, Amy is better than most super villains we've seen on the silver screen.

                      I really loved this movie.

                        Yeah, I really enjoyed the movie as well, but thought that there were too many holes and unanswered questions, like why the tapes in Desi's retreat were never reviewed.

                        I did think of Amy in the same light as a criminal mastermind, like Dr. Octopus in Spidey's body, especially with regard to the meticulous calendar planning and even moreso when she referred to her "friends" as morons.

                          The tapes in Desi's retreat home where probably reviewed, but I don't think there was a camera in the his bedroom. Remember, Amy studied the retreat's surveillance system and knew where all the cameras were located. Remember the scene where Amy sees Desi off to work and she loosen his pants and untucks his shirt and messes his hair. Shortly after she does that and Desi leaves, she runs to a camera and curls up crying as if she's been sexually assaulted. So if the authorities look as the security video at Desi's retreat, they'll see him walking out the door like he just had sex and her messed up like she was assaulted by him. And remember Amy also jammed (IIRC) a bottle up her vagina so that it looked like rape.

                          • The Possession (2012)

                            "Stay away from my kids teeth!"

                            Not great, but better than some of the recent haunting/possession stories. The nice twist on this one is that the exorcist and history is Jewish.

                            Cheech & Chong: Nice Dreams (1981)

                              The Glass House (2001)

                              "You kids are a handful."

                                "It ain't proper to be runnin' 'round naked."

                                Desperado (1995)

                                I liked El Mariachi, but this was awesome. Now, I just need to see the last one.
