"Smile, you son of a..."

The latest Angry Alien production is out, and it's another classic: "Jaws" In 30 Seconds And Reenacted By Bunnies. Well, bunnies and a shark, if you want to be technical. Like their previous re-imaginings such as "The Exorcist" and "Titanic", it's a hoot. Check it out.

Speaking of "Jaws", the next time someone says to you that movie adaptations of books are always worse than the original, ask them if they've ever read the novel "Jaws". It's awful. The main character after the shark is Chief Brody's wife, who frets about her shaky marriage and engages in an affair with the rakish icthyologist Matt Hooper. I'd tell you more but I can't remember a single other interesting bit from the book, something which I think we can all agree is not a statement one would make about the movie. And to tie this all back to bunnies, the book "Who Killed Roger Rabbit?" is not nearly as good as the movie, too.

I'm disturbed that bunnies are being used in such a manner.

Of course, I'm just disturbed. ;-)

You didn't like the sexually charged conversation between Ellen Brody and Hooper over scallops at their secret dinner tryst?

You should try reading Hank Searls' Jaws 2 some time.
