Jaws IV The Revenge
Jaws was cinema at its best, Jaws II a passable sequel, even Jaws III is watchable in a post-pub cheesy 80s spot-the-black-border-around-what-would-have-been-3D-at-the-cinema sort of way. But Jaws IV is diabolical low-budget straight to video fare. Terrible script, terrible acting, unlikable characters, a rubber shark that roars (yes, roars). And the worst thing? Every time ITV4 re-runs it I feel compelled to watch. Maybe part of me can't condemn it in its entirety, maybe I'm desperately looking for that one bit of clever dialogue, that one cinematic shot or special effect that might make me think "I can see now why people spent time, money, sweat, etc, on this movie" but no. I can find merit in just about every film I've ever watched, good and bad, but not this one - it stinks like a week old fish.
So the countdown finished and the website promptly collapsed with a bang. Less than stellar.

I use my iPhone for data on the hour's commute to London and for 60% of the journey get either No Service or GPRS speeds. Edge puts in a rare appearance and 3G rarer still. If 3 starting offering iPhone contracts I'd sign up tomorrow.
