cant remember the name of the movie, what its about, or who's in it.  i can only remember a scene from the movie.  its an older movie, probably made in the late 70's or early 80's.  the scene takes place on a fishing boat (similiar to the one in Jaws).  an older man and a young boy(say 12) are the only ones aboard the boat.  the boy is sitting in a chair with a deep sea pole, fishing.  the boy hooks a huge fish(i think a sailfish or a marlin).  the boy fights the fish for hours with the guidance and help of the old man, but eventually loses the fish.  the boy colllapses in tears and exhaustion.  what a great scene.  would love to watch the movie with my adult eyes, please help...

Well shoot, now I may never know if I was right. It was my one shot at sounding smart about a movie....  Bluesad

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
