A discussion of cult films by two guys located in a basement somewhere in the Pacific Northwest. Matt holds a B.S. and M.S. in physics, and works as an aerospace engineer. Mark holds a B.S. in biochemistry and works as a research technician... both are graduates of Snohomish High School Class of 91/92 respectiviely, none of which qualifies them to discuss film in any meaningful way... so... "caveat emptor" and all that.

Mark's virgin viewing of the high-concept classic Jaws, from sophomore director Steven Spielberg. Mark gets to the heart of his prejudice against Spielberg and tries not to bring his baggage into the review, but we both find it fairly hard to defend the director's later efforts. Despite his reliance on emotional claptrap, Spielberg delivers a terrifying fish story held tight by the superb acting trio of Scheider, Dreyfuss, and Shaw.
