Hello sportsfans, Trey here. Back in 1975 a little-known TV director got stuck with the job of making a shark movie that was only 3% shark. What might have been fodder for an episode of Mystery Science Theater became a blockbuster that changed the way Hollywood has made movies ever since. Good thing, too – if his shark movie hadn’t worked out, that guy’d be lucky to be directing Good Morning Amarillo these days. Instead he gets to be Steven Spielberg, which is almost certainly better.
Join us won’t you, as we unravel the mystery of how a monster movie can work so gosh-darn well, even though the monster almost never shows up. Or did I just give away the answer?
I have a tendency to fix your typos.
