You know what I hate about movies these days? They lack originality. Most of the movies these days are remakes of the classics.
When I hear that they are remaking a movie, I usually just roll my eyes. I don't see the point in doing it, especially if there is nothing wrong with it. There have been a few that were pretty good, like the remake of Amityville Horror. I actually like that one.
So, if someone were going to remake the movie Jaws, it would have to be a pretty epic remake for me to watch it. Yes, graphics have come a LONG way. Yes, they can do a LOT with computer imaging. But part of the appeal of Jaws is how cheesy the effects are. It's a horribly made movie. But I enjoy that horrendousness of it. That's part of the charm. Watching it didn't make me NOT want to go in the water. It just made me laugh.
Maybe I'm a bit sadistic. Maybe I just don't scare that easy. Maybe the fact that, when I saw it, I was already use to modern day graphics and I found those in the movie to be completely inadequate. Who knows. I liken it to my son, who has an Xbox One, playing the original Nintendo. He would probably HATE it. Why? Because the graphics were SOOOOOO bad.
So, while I won't say I'd run from it, I can't commit to watching this hypothetical remake. Not out of fear or anything like that. No, this is simply because I like movies that old school and stay that way.
