Thumbs up Jaws has been found =)

'Jaws' Shark Hunted Down


Saw this story on Yahoo & didn't know if anyone would wanna read it. I thought it was kinda weird that they didn't have the original "Jaws" in a museum (or something) somewhere.

Quote:
The star of "Jaws" has been found resting in a Los Angeles junkyard.

In 1990, the shark was taken down and shipped out to destinations unknown. Turner picked up the phone and started dialing junkyards. He finally found the creature in a yard in the Sun Valley area of Southern California -- just minutes away from Universal. Turner brought the team who built Bruce -- art department members Joe Alves and Roy Arbogast to verify the shark'* authenticity.

"It'* the real one," Arbogast told Turner after examining the creature. "It'* just kinda' nice to see it again after 25 or 30 years. It'* amazing that it'* still here."

Bruce'* discovery couldn't come at a better time. There'* talk that Universal might be considering a 3D "Jaws" remake -- with comedian Tracy Morgan in the shark-hunter role. Perhaps Bruce will find his way onto the silver screen once again.

A remake! For real? Omg...I mean that movie was good & all but now when I talk to people about sharks or whatever they refer behavior & size off that movie, which makes me wish sometimes that they wouldve never made it lol. Would safe me lots of time defending the Great White & explaining the true facts to people

Must be running out of ideas for new movies. All they seem to be doing is remaking everything.

Yeahh I agree, I really dislike 3D. I saw a Christmas Carol iin 3D while I was living in Florida & it jut gave me a big headache. I mean the graphics & all will be better I think but I think they'll ruin the movie by adding stupid/unnecessary sex scenes in it that play no relevance to the story like all the new movies do now-a-days

Two things I hate about 3D movies:
1. More expensive.
2. Half as bright, due to the polarization effects.

Other than that, I'm lucky enough to not get motion sickness. I saw "Avatar" in 3D, and while I wouldn't call it mind-blowing, it was pretty cool.

3D movies use shutter glasses not polazized glasses. Well, the ones I've been to anyway.

The ones I've been to (Real3D) use polarized glasses. At least the effect is the same: close one eye, and the picture is only half as bright.

Some movie theaters that are really serious about 3D movies have been installing special screens, which are coated with something (silver, I think?) that reflect more light to appear brighter.
