    Jaws

    THE BIRDS is good, but JAWS really perfects the Man vs. Nature plot in regards to animal menace. So many great scenes, so many things you can’t do better with this setup. It’s the JAWS of killer shark movies lol.

    -love Quint’s introduction at the town hall meeting.
    -Appreciate how the Island’s economic dilemma doesn’t paint the mayor as a villain, just under a different pressure of office. And it doesn’t go for some cheap thrill like having him eaten…

    Fear City

    "It's a thin line, you greaseballs tread." -Det. Al Wheeler (Billy Dee WIlliams).

    The Oily Maniac

    The real oily maniacs are the corrupt lawyers, unlicensed plastic surgeons and rapey thugs we strangled along the way.

    A 70’s Shaw Brothers horror movie that contains black magic, but not as gonzo as some of their other output. A crippled legal clerk watches as his uncle’s business is taken over by thugs. During a brawl with said thugs, his uncle kills a man and is sentenced to death. The same day as the execution, his bosses at the law firm…
