What if Kylo Ren was in these famous movie scenes instead of, say, Clint Eastwood or Samuel L. Jackson? He certainly puts a twist on the classic scenes from 300 and A Few Good Men, that's for sure.Read More

Pepsi recently announced they'll actually be making the Pepsi Perfect bottle from Back to the Future Part II; and now, not to be outdone, Universal has released a trailer for Jaws 19. Pffft, where's your commitment, Universal! You couldn't actually make the movie?Read More

Do you love rom-coms as much as you love studying chemistry? Do you live for analyzing the psychics of certain action sequences? Then #ScienceAMovieQuote is one experiment you're going to love seeing through.Read More
Get on my wall.
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.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
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...Read More

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.Read More
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.Read More
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)Read More
