    Totally with you on this. And yes, I love Star Wars, but I haven't watched it in years. When Jaws comes on, I am hooked, as is my family.
    Maybe this has to do with us being from Massachusetts? I feel like come summertime, lots of people are referencing Jaws. And yes Star Wars is obviously a highly talked about film, but are you guys talking about Star Wars the film itself, or the Star Wars universe? Obviously that will get a lot more talk because it's a whole universe of films and shows versus a single standalone film. I am however surprised that people don't think Jaws is a very rewatchable film, or that they're surprised that some people rewatch it all the time. I myself have seen it countless times.
    Countless doesn't even cover it for me, but I agree it could be a Massachusetts thing, or at least a New England thing it's technically a set off of New York.
    I was also thinking it could also affect people that live near the coast more than those that are inland. We also spend a lot of time at the Cape in the summer, so I'm sure that also plays a role. It basically is like the film out there now come summertime with the growing great white population, especially with the attack a few years back. We were out there that weekend, and the morning after we picked up breakfast and headed down to the beach. They had all these signs saying the beach was closed, and people handing out fliers with information about sharks. It can definitely be scary out there at times, especially when you see the photos of how close they are to the shore.
    Only the gentle are ever really strong.

    Ok hear me out.

    I'm a huge SW fan. Huge!!!

    But I voted Jaws as I don't think as SW as a 70's film.

    It's part of a bigger series that makes it brilliant. Like how the DT series sum is greater than all its parts.

    Jaws is just excellent on its own. It's an iconic 70's flick. So I've voted for that. Don't hate me.

    Disney turned the Star Wars franchise into ratshit.

    This is what would have happened if Jaws had been made by Disney...

    It was super close, but our winner of the fifth part of The Great Movie Tournament and the best film of the 1970s is Jaws (1975), directed by Steven Spielberg.

    The Houston Astros cheated Major League Baseball from 2017-18!!!!

    They cheated their way to a couple of League Championships & a World Series!!!!

    Is that how we teach our kids to play the game now?????
