: Now, I don't know Kevin nor what goes on in his nogging, but the way he said it it
sounded like he was saying that the stretch in Jaws was bad. The implied/assumed
tone is what I'm addressing.
No - I implied that it was obviously a stretch. Period.
There are stretches that're more well-hidden (check out the "Goodfellas" diner
stretch), and stretches that are very, very obvious (that "Jaws" stretch). One's not
better than the other, because the "Jaws" stretch does what it sets out to
accomplish: it's meant to evoke an emotional response in the viewer.
However, the "Goodfellas" stretch - while far more subtle - creates the same uneasy
feeling... just without being so blatant about it.
