Really Awful Movies: Ep 124 – Jaws 3-D

Steven Spielberg’s Jaws is one of the defining classics of our age. Jaws 3-D. Um. Not so much.

When a 10-foot great white gets into a Seaworld lagoon, that’s a problem. But an even bigger problem, literally, is its mother, a 35-foot behemoth the size of a city bus and only slightly less unpleasant.

Dennis Quaid, son of Sheriff Brody and company are tasked with ridding the creature from the amusement park and nearby beaches.

Will he need a bigger boat? A bigger budget? Find out in our JAWS 3-D podcast! Yes, we actually viewed it in 3-D.

Lea Thompson, Louis Gossett and Bess Armstrong co-star in this fun, if water-logged, dud.

Really Awful Movies: Ep 112 – Friday the 13th Part 2

This addition to the Friday the 13th franchise finds Jason Voorhees still finding his form/ identity.

Pre-hockey mask, this is the butcher of Camp Crystal Lake in pillow-case face regalia, a la the killer from The Town that Dreaded Sundown. And unlike in later incarnations, he has to really work to kill his victims. Also, Jason’s not yet the physically imposing indestructible automaton he’d later become.

Grab a hat, some insect repellent and short shorts and join us in that cabin in the woods for camp counselor orientation weekend as we discuss Friday the 13th Part II.
