Jaws (1975)

Jaws (53:43)

Jaws shrine

Yup, that’s Ryan’s shrine to Jaws. What you see on the top left of the Jaws action package is the invaluable Nigel Andrews book mentioned more than once during the podcast. Don’t we ever dust in our house?

So, anyway, the thrills, the chase, the blood, the teeth! Our 90th T100P podcast covers the rare thriller/horror/action flick on the list, which just happens to be Ryan’s favourite movie. Bev digs it too, even though Steven Spielberg is behind the bullhorn. Listen, but first order enough Sparkplug Coffee to fill “a bigger boat”.
