It's Effin Shark Week, Beaches! Part Deux

Until the world gets behind Cuttlefish week, I still have a couple of days to celebrate Shark Week. And even though sharks don't really scare me (unlike cuttlefish), they do often make me LOL.

I present to you my top 5 shark scenes in random order (possible spoilers below)





During a showing of this film in 2009, Brad Neely pointed out a scene that has now become one of my favorites. It's just laid out so perfectly. What's more hilar than 1 shirtless dude rockin' a hoodie? ...

A very thorough list indeed. I do love me some of Fulci's ZOMBIE. And yet, not one of those films--not ONE--has an ounce of the passion, skill, wit, humanity, or intensity of the original shark sensation, JAWS. The one, and, as far as I'm concerned, the only.
