"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 unforgettable s... 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

When a young woman is killed by a shark while skinny-dipping near the New England tourist town of Amity Island, police chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) wants to close the beaches, but mayor Larry Vaughn (Murray Hamilton) overrules him, fearing that the loss of tourist revenue will cripple the town. Ichthyologist Matt Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) and grizzled ship captain Quint (Robert Shaw) offer to help Brody capture the killer beast, and the trio engage in an epic battle of man vs. nature.

Fictional Places You Don’t Want To Visit (205 movies items)

"Amity Island, New England Amity Island is a fictional island located off the coast of New England, and is the main setting of the Jaws franchise. The island is known for its clean air, beautiful beaches, and many of its local fishermen. Why you wouldn’t want to visit: The island is also infamous for its series of horrifying and fatal shark attacks. And also, the highly corrupt mayor, Mayor Larry Vaughan is still the mayor, in the sequel. “After all, “Amity means friendship.”"

"26.6. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Tappajahain edelliskerta olikin sitten sen mehevän 30-vuotisjuhla-DVD:n kanssa juhlavuotenaan, korkeintaan seuraavana vuonna. Tappajahaita voi kyllä katsoa pahalla silmällä sen vaikutuksesta Hollywoodin isojen studioiden rahasampokulttuuriin ja hitaaseen, mutta lähes totaaliseen älylliseen taantumaan, mutta elokuvana sitä on paha itsessään moittia. Toisaalta sen voi hyvinkin lukea osaaksi Uutta Hollywoodia nuoren ja paljon vastuuta ja vapautta saaneen o"

Terror Blurbs! (An Ever-Expanding List) (100 movies items)

"Plot: A small coastal town is terrorized by a great white shark whose bloodthirsty rampage is made all the worse by bureaucrats. Oft imitated, never paralleled (at least as far as shark movies go), Jaws proves more of a drama with action-adventure undertones, but the horrifying impact of the brilliantly composed shark sequences made its mark on the psyche of the moviegoing populace. Fantastic performances and direction abound!"
