The best summer blockbuster in history...

"You're gonna need a bigger boat."

Though decades have passed since it first entered theatres in 1975, Steven Spielberg's Jaws still assuredly holds its position as one of the greatest thrillers of all time, and remains an important cinematic artefact. Central to the film's brilliance is the riveting suspense, the colourful cast of characters, the humour, the terrific dialogue, the ... read more

Today Great White Sharks are on the endangered species list. We now know that even the humble toaster in your kitchen is far more dangerous to mankind than these wondrous creatures, which have changed so little since prehistoric times. But in 1975 the world was a different place and for anyone watching this movie the sea quickly became a fearful place with sharks the hidden killer of the deep. read more

Not the best movie but one of the best

“Recently I've watched the three 'Jaws' sequels and none of them were good (although 'Jaws 2' certainly wasn't horrible, it was far from being a masterpiece), but the best one (by far) is the timeless starter 'Jaws'

You can award the shark from this movie, you can eat the shark from the third movie as your starter and the forth shark for the main course! I just hate thinking about 'Jaws: The Revenge'

But anyway we're talking about the first 'Jaws' movie! The timeless classic! Based on the best selling novel, 'Jaws' is about a great white shark who eats people when they just want to swim and every time the famous music plays, you know the shark is coming to get you!

" One of my favorite films, of all time and also the reason, why I am afraid of swimming in open water. "


dannyjai posted a review 1 month ago

“This is a classic movie, one of Steven Spielbergs best. The story is so simple, yet the monster and the realism of the story is horrific. If you live near the beach, and have had shark attacks you know just how scary this movie is. Watching the horrors of a shark attack on screen is terrifying, which is why this movie is so great. This is a all round great movie, and if you have not watched it do so. Warning though once you have watched this movie, and you head back to the beach you will never be the same again.” read more

My Film-related Dreams (6 movies items)

"A Film-maker's Journey This short dream included me as the director, making a cheap ripoff film about Steven Spielberg's Jaws. Spielberg heard about the project and became so interested that he offered to pay the whole budget of the film from his own money if he could be the assistant director of the film. The end result was a three-hour-long documentary film about a film-maker's journey and how dreams can come true. "

Movie Reviews (part 12) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: It has a simple, yet timelessness to it's story - a modern monster movie version of "Moby Dick" but with a white shark instead of a whale. Excellent casting of it's three male leads. Epic John Williams music. The film that started Spielberg's career as the major man of box office films. The Downs: It gave way for several inferior sequels and even worse imitations. Peter Benchley would try to repeat his book success with coping his formula to death. "

""Here lies the body of Mary Lee; died at the age of a hundred and three. For fifteen years she kept her virginity; not a bad record for this vicinity." I've always thought that calling jaws a horror film was kind of pigeonholing it. however I'm inclined to put it on here because it's so well regarded and I really do love it. I've long thought of Jaws as more of an adventure film, with more in common with Moby Dick. Jaws is the movie that made people afraid of the water though, so that horror el"

"True Event: The Jersey Shore shark attacks of 1916 were a series of shark attacks along the coast of New Jersey between July 1 and July 12, 1916, in which four people were killed and 7 injured. Since 1916, scholars have debated which shark species was responsible and the number of animals involved, with the great white shark and the bull shark most frequently being blamed. The attacks occurred during a deadly summer heat wave and polio epidemic in the Northeastern United States that drove thous"
