I finally watched Jaws for the first time and I don’t know why I waited this long

You probably waited so long because of the sequels. When we were young, somehow we considered seeing sequels the same as seeing the original. So like if someone asked "Did you ever see JAWS", you might say "No but I saw some of JAWS 2", or "I saw JAWS 3D, hoo boy that stank!", as if that meant you were plenty familiar with JAWS, thank you! And if you had seen JAWS 2, you probably thought "Meh, what's the big deal?" and that's it.

But JAWS is JAWS though; nothing else is JAWS. I didn't see it until I was like 35 and I was amaaaaazed.
