Happy J day! I know. I had no intention of big blockbusters for this challenge. But I had to make exceptions for two of these :)
I remember seeing Jaws for the first time, I had to be about ten. It took along time to to get into a pool or take a bubble bath. Showers only. Yeah. It scared me that bad.
But, it is also I why I watch shark week every year. It's why I so enjoy those SyFy channel original shark movies :) Not that I'm getting in the water, ever, but it did get me to learn more about them and have a healthy fear.
For those that may not know the story, a shark is taking out swimmers on 4th of July weekend. It's up to Chief Brody, a local shark hunter and a marine biologist to get to it before it kills again.

Hooper: Boys, oh boys... I think he's come back for his noon feeding.

Have tissue. Lots of tissue. It is a French film after all. This was the first Depardieu movie I saw.
A city man inherits a farm in the country and is plotted against by neighbors who had plans to buy the land. The land has a spring on it which would reduce the work of carrying water from a faraway stream.
It is slow and heartbreaking so be ready for it.
Gerard Depardieu, Yves Montand, Daniel Auteuil
Jean de Florette: I'm Jean, and my mother was Florette. But my real name is Jean Cadoret.
Ugolin: If you'd been born here, it would be Jean de Florette.
I saw this on the big screen :) after I read the book that creeped me out. Those little dinosaurs. Ekkk.
Scientists are asked to checkout a new theme park with dinosaurs as the main attraction. Real dinos that go on a real eating spree, cause that's what dinos do. They eat. Anything that moves.
I still watch it when it comes on. And hate that I am even thinking of spending 14 dollars to see it in 3D. :)

John Hammond: We've made living biological attractions so astounding that they'll capture the imagination of the entire planet.
And you did, sir.Yes you did:)
