  1. Minimalist Movie Posters, Made With Simple Sheets Of Paper

    Get on my wall.

    It feels almost unnecessary to write anything about artwork that manages to say so much with so little. My hat is off to the folks at Spanish design studio Atipo, who have proven the old adage about pictures being worth a thousand words.

  2. Jaws Works Surprisingly Well With The Godzilla Trailer Audio

    Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the nuclear power plant.

    I don't think anybody in Amity Island was really worried that a giant shark was going to "send them back to the Stone Age," but if we're going to keep on with the new trend of putting 2014's Godzilla trailer audio over video from other scary movies, then Jaws is obviously a good one to work with.

  3. Show Your Love For Sharks With LEGO CUUSOO Jaws Set

    What do you say when a shark grabs your leg? (Think about it.)

    I would not mind having it within my ability to recreate the goriest showdown in the world's best shark movie wherever and whenever I please. Thankfully a LEGO CUUSOO JAWS: Orca's Last Stand set might be dunun-duning into reality soon--but first the creator will need a bigger fan base to make it happen.

  4. An Empassioned Fan’s Plea: Make Fifteen Jaws Movies to Maintain Back to the Future‘s Accuracy

    Great Scott!

    In case you don't remember, Back to the Future II contains a memorable scene where a dazzled Marty McFly, visiting the year 2015, is overwhelmed by a holographic advertisement for Jaws XIX, the 18th sequel to Steven Spielberg's Jaws. But, as Tumblrer Ctrayn points out, there are only four Jaws movies, which means movie studios have only six hundred and thirty two days to keep Back to the Future II from having a singular glaring continuity error. What? I'm sure the rest of the movie will turn out to be entirely accurate. Obviously, it's time to take things into our own hands, and if you'd like to join the mission of producing fifteen feature length Jaws "sequels," you should check this post on Tumblr, where folks have already shown enthusiasm for the project to the tune of more than 22 thousand notes. And, as Ctrayn says, "Even if your film is 40 straight minutes of a rubber shark floating quietly in a bathtub... it is still probably a more entertaining watch than Jaws: the Revenge."

  5. Weird Safe Sex PSA Reminds Us That Condoms Are No Good for Stopping Daleks or Jaws [Video]

    Let's just hope Doctor Who writers don't see this as some kind of weird dare.

    We're imagining that there's either some kind of geek STD outbreak in the UK, or they're just tired of geeks making so many little geeks, because their Centre for HIV and Sexual Health has put out a geek-centric PSA about proper condom use. To be fair, we'd definitely have paid more attention if sex education involved Daleks and the Hulk.

  6. #CrushItLikeQuint With Jaws Beer Can Re-Release

    Here's to swimmin' with bowlegged women.

    We tend to focus more on sci-fi and fantasy movies here at Geekosystem, but any film geek will tell you it doesn't get much better than Jaws. To celebrate how great Jaws is, and how great Shark Week used to be, the Narragansett Brewery re-released the can famously crushed by Quint the film. Oh, show me the way to go home...

  11. Take a Look Behind the Scenes of Some Classic Films

    i'll just leave this here

    As the saying goes, "a picture can say a thousand words." This is especially true when we've already had entire movies made surrounding the topics of said pictures, and thus thousands of words pre-associated with them. Nevertheless, these pictures from behind the scenes of some of the past century's most memorable films still find more to say all by their lonesome selves.

  12. See Famous Pop Culture Enemies Hug It Out, Adorably

    Awwwwww

    There's so much hate in the world (or universe, as the case may be), that's it's nice to see a little forgiveness, a little tenderness, a little love once in a while. German artist Ingrid Aspöck shows us what pop-culture life would be like if everyone just got along. Hint: very, very cute.

  13. Universal Studios’ Jaws Ride Closes Down, but You Can Experience It With This Simulated YouTube Tour

    Universal Studios' Jaws ride may be closed and gone forever, but a well-shot, simulated tour of the entire experience -- including the walk through the midway leading up to the ride -- forever lives on thanks to InsideTheMagic's YouTube account. The video tour, and nostalgia, after the break.

  14. Jaws Re-imagined As a Heartwarming Family Tale [Video]

    And All Was Right With the World

    In case you happen to follow me -- or The Mary Sue -- on Twitter, you might know that I was on vacation in Orlando last week. But the day I left for said vacation, I was really disheartened to find out that the Jaws ride, one of the original attractions at Universal Studios when it opened in 1990, will be closing! So, I rode it one more time, and it was a truly sentimental experience. (Eh, not really.) In fact, the video above -- by Caleb Hepler -- echoes my feelings almost exactly. (Again, not really.) I'll miss that curious shark! (Ehhhhhh ... maybe a little.) (via Laughing Squid)

  18. Blu-Rays Announced for Jaws and Jurassic Park, Plus Spielberg Speaks

    hold on to your butts

    First, some good news on the home release front: both Jaws and the Jurassic Park trilogy will be released on Blu-ray by the end of this year (fingers crossed). No release date has been announced yet, but in an interview with Ain't It Cool News, the director of both films, Steven Spielberg, says that while the films will be cleaned up for higher quality, he will not be making any changes to update the special effects (which was done to E.T.). This is such excellent, refreshing news, and Spielberg talks even more about his work on his blockbusters.

  19. J.J. Abrams May Helm Spielberg-Inspired Film

    Right now, you could argue that we're in a new age in filmic storytelling, and that science fiction has been brought into the limelight in way that it hasn't enjoyed in years. One of the people who brought that shift toward mainstream is J.J. Abrams. A director who took on Star Trek in 2009, effectively retconned it, and made it a good movie with widespread appeal. Well, it looks like Abrams might be up to something new and with a little help. Sources are telling New York Magazine's Vulture blog that Abrams is currently working on a project that will, in some way, shape, or form, involve a certain Steven Spielberg and pay homage to his early work.

  20. When Titanic Beat Star Wars, Lucas Bought Cameron this Ad

    In 1998, Titanic topped Star Wars as the #1 box office movie of all time. In congratulations, George Lucas bought this full-page ad in Variety, in which the Star Wars crew jumps out of the sinking ship and into the ocean of second place. (Here's the fully-sized ad.)

    Apparently, it is a Hollywood tradition for directors who have their #1 records smashed to take out full page ads congratulating the new record-holders. The good people of Reddit have dug up two more such ads:
