The only decent Jaws follow-up...

"I think we may have another shark problem..." Unlike numerous other lucrative blockbusters of the 1970s (such as Star Wars, Superman, etc), Steven Spielberg's Jaws did not lend itself particularly well to a sequel. After all, the story was about a shark terrorising a small island community, and the shark was killed during the picture's climax. With the titular monster dead and the main story arc ... read more

An average movie

Since 'Jaws' was a huge success and the very first summer blockbuster, of course, they eventually had to make a sequel. Unfortunately, like most sequels, this one was pretty disappointing. The first issue is that the concept can work only once in my opinion. Indeed, as a stand-alone, it worked fine, but the second time around, the story was virtually the same thing and not only it was the same thi... read more

The same plot but still decent

'Jaws 2' is the same plot but still decent, the tagline 'Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water...' was a good tagline, the cast (Roy Scheider, Lorraine Gary, Murray Hamilton, Joseph Mascolo, Jeffrey Kramer) were good and although they kept the same plot as 'Jaws' and it's not as scary as the original, it's not bad at all

" - Rewatched It's a bit unfair to compare this to Steven Spielberg's original classic, yet it is also inevitable. JAWS 2 falls short in almost every department. Ending up as an overlong snoozefest by the end, it is directly suffering from the lack of the precise filmmaking that the original had, the rich character development and the nail-biting tension of the shark attacks. JAWS 2 decides to go away from the less-is-more approach that Spielberg was forced into when he made JAWS. This time the f"

"Chief Brody has PTSD and this is basically the same movie again but without the great characters and dialogue. Roy Scheider was good in this. I hadn't seen this one in years, I dropped the rating a little bit."

“Yeah I know I must be crazy to be checking these sequels out now. When it's free it's free though. So thanks to Netflix I decided to see how terrible they actually were. Jeannot Szwarc actually directed the Supergirl movie that is considered pretty awful. He has also directed many shows I watch including Supernatural and Heroes. Carl Gottlieb actually was a writer in the first Jaws. Why he decided to do this sequel is beyond me though. This is the first of the series for Howard Sackler. Anyways let's see if this really is as bad as they say.

So basically it's just a rehash of the first movie. I mean there is seriously a lot of stuff that happens here that happened there. It does have a higher body count which I like. It's really not that impressive though. They way the short is ” read more

2016: Films I've Watched in September (30 movies items)

"Re-Watched 9/6/2016 A sequel that probably didn't need to happen but when compared to the ones that would follow it is miles ahead while still being miles behind the original. But, I think there is still some fun to be had with this film sure it has less of a sense of danger then the first and you can tell there were problems with the production behind the scenes but Roy Scheider still brings a solid performance despite this and the cinematographer really gets some good sailing shots through"
