    Great stuff – you may want to check the date of Freaks though – it was released originally in 1932, I believe.

    • Cecil:

      Thanks! Wow, not sure what happened there, that one should have been 1932. I must have typo’d the year and not realized it. D’oh!

  • Cristiona:

    Heh. If you ever revisit this concept, you could easily add the Straw Dogs remake with its tagline of “Don’t let them in”. Ugh.

    • Cecil:

      Really? That’s the best they could do? Ugh is right.

      I have a few taglines I didn’t use last time, most likely I will revisit this closer to the end of the year.

      • Cristiona:

        It gets worse. The first place I saw the tagline was on a poster, superimposed over an image of Kate Bosworth, which turned it from a lame tagline to a horrific double entendre when you think about how the original was infamous for the rape scene.

    I’m way late to the party, but regarding the tagline for Meet The Feebles I must respectfully disagree. I’ve wanted to see this movie for ages, based on descriptions I’ve heard, but that tagline sealed the deal. Now I resolve to find and watch the hell out of it. “Hell hath no fury like a hippo with a machine gun”? Sign me up.

    • Cecil:

      Wow, how did I miss this comment? If you have seen Meet the Feebles, then you know. It’s a very weird movie and I’m still not entirely sure how I feel about it.

  • MH:

    Did you know the shark roars in “Jaws” as well? I think the shark makes a noise in maybe all the films–“Jaws 3D”, it made what sounded like a growl. The one in “Jaws” did it, I think, at least three times (example, when it rises out of the water when Quint shoots it). I liked “Jaws: The Revenge” better than “Jaws 3D” because it seemed like a sequel with the characters and location (and same actress) back (I even read the novel back then). “Jaws 3D” seemed like a shark movie where two of the characters had the name Brody attached. The music was a variation of John Williams theme, but “Jaws: The Revenge” used his music.
    I was curious–why Orange Cat (I have one sleeping next to me right now)?

    • Cecil:

      Really? I’ll have to go back and watch Jaws again but I don’t recall it roaring, at least not to the degree that it did in 4.

      Jaws 3D struck at the right time for me. We had just bought our first VCR and my parents rented a bunch of movies. I wanted to see it and since it was PG my folks gave me the ok. (funny/sad how today this wouldn’t be a PG movie) I must have watched it 5 times before we had to return it.

      Jaws the Revenge I didn’t see until I was much older and by then I was more perceptive of things going on in movies. Had I have seen it when I was younger I might feel differently.

      Angry Orange Cat is named after my best friend, my Cat. He was separated from his mother when he was only a few weeks old and when I found him he was lost in the woods and very malnourished. I took him in and nursed him back to health and now he is a very healthy, happy cat. A good friend of mine came up with the “angry orange cat” because he looks like he is frowning. He usually keeps me company in my studio when I am spending hours and hours editing. He’s the best and I love him dearly.

  • What a great video, love jaws, haven’t seen some of these though, time for a movie night!
