Weekly roundup: Jaws, Ironman and Gift Cards

by Kristina Tahnyak on May 3, 2013 · 5 comments

Happy Friday Dinks.  It’s the first Friday in May, what are you up to this weekend? Iron Man 3 starts today so I am hoping to see that movie this weekend.  As I get older I am not as tolerant of crowds as I used to be.  I definitely won’t see Iron Man 3 on Friday night but maybe Nick and I will go see it on Saturday or Sunday afternoon in an attempt to avoid the crowds.

I loved all of the previous Iron Man movies but sometimes as a saga goes on the quality of the movies gets lower, especially if the director changes with each new film.

What is your favourite movie trilogy or saga?

Many people may say that their favourite movie trilogy is The Godfather, but not me.  Don’t get me wrong those movies are great and definitely classic, but my favourite movie saga of all time is Jaws.  I really like all 4 of the Jaws movies but over the years as technology advances and cast and crew members decide not to take on the next project the movie has moved away from being thrilled by suspense to being thrilled by terror.

I admit there is something terrifying about knowing that the killer shark is under water but not being able to see it.  But I love a good shark attack scene and Jaws 4 has one of the best shark attacks that I have ever seen.  The shark emerges from the water and bites a woman right off a banana boat.  It’s really great.

I hear you about hating the movie crowds. Unless it’s something I “have” to see we rarely even go to the movies anymore. All time, Star Wars probably ranks up there for me…but lately it would have to be the Bourne movies or Batman.

Star Wars is definitely my favorite trilogy, though I also liked the Bourne movies and Oceans 11, 12, and 13.

I’m not one to go to the movies and the last one my wife dragged me to was that darned Twilight Saga movie. I watched the entire Series with her because I love her but man did I pay her back with some good old movies… lol… Marriage, it’s all about compromise, right? Have a good weekend.

Have a great weekend Travis.

@John S – The new Bourne movie was absolutely amazing and I like the latest Batman as well. I can’t wait to see how the new Robin character plays out into the story.

@DC – I only saw Ocean’s 11 and I thought it was brillant.

@Canadian Budget Binder – What do you mean you didn’t like The Twilight Saga???
