Jaws (1975)
Thriller, 124 minutes
Directed by Steven Spielberg
Starring Richard Dreyfuss, Roy Scheider and Robert Shaw

As I continue working on this 100 movies project, I am realizing that my tastes are all over the map. It ranges from 50's black and white dramas set in one room, to foreign language films, to recent blockbusters. In a way, I'm happy to find that I'm open to all types of film. Today's entry falls into the blockbuster category and was the highest-grossing movie ever made in its day.

I remember a conversation with friends when I was 13 telling me that I had to see Jaws. They talked about the shark more than anything, and people being torn apart. I caved and ended up seeing the movie and then I read the book. There are plenty of people who have never lost that fascination for deadly creatures. Would we have Shark Week without Jaws? Why do we want to watch such a creature?

Actually, that's not why I like Jaws.

Jaws works for me because of the quality of the acting and the suspense created by wondering where the shark will strike next. The first hour of the movie sets everything up. Although there's nothing particularly bad about the first half, it's far from remarkable. We see a few attacks and meet the main characters.

Chief Brody (Scheider) is my favorite character. He's intelligent, sensible, practical and calm under pressure. Hooper (Dreyfuss) is a marine biologist who thinks the problem can be solved through the use of modern equipment. The most colorful character is Quint (Shaw), who is experienced and outspoken. This group ends up tracking the shark on Quint's boat and it's here that the movie really takes off.

this is the movie that ushered in a whole new era for movies.the
original shark movie.the movie quickly became part of pop culture
history, and has inspired(and i use that term loosely,for the most
part)many pale imitations and pretenders.but no one has had anywhere
near the impact "Jaws" had and continues to have.this movie did for
swimming in the ocean what psycho did for showering.the movie has an OK
story,but that is not the focal point of this movie.what drives this
movie is the suspense and,at times almost unbearable tension.and that's
coming from someone who had seen the movie at least once before,so i
knew what to expect.the main reason for this is the the musical score
by the great John Williams.his theme for Jaws may be the best ever
written and performed,and also the most famous.the only other contender
in this category is "Star Wars",much of which Williams is also famous
for.i also like the colourful characters,especially the three main ones
played by Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw and Richard Dreyfuss,i am not going
to say anything about the plot,because it's pretty obvious.if you
haven't seen this movie,you owe it to yourself,and then you can decide
whether it is worthy of all it's praise and lives up to it's
reputation.keep in mind,"Jaws" was released in 1975.what is undeniable
is that this movie revolutionized film-making for years.for me the
movie "Jaws" is a strong 4.5/5

Based on Peter Benchley's bestseller Jaws tells the story of Chief of Police Martin Brody's attempts to convince the Mayor to close down Amity Beach after a teenager is attacked and killed by a Great White Shark. A second deadly attack on a little boy compels new Chief of Police Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) to force the Mayor (Murray Hamilton) to sign a contract that will allow Quint, a crusty old sailor (Robert Shaw), along with himself, and shark expert Matt Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) to hunt the Great White down and kill it.
.
This film is a masterpiece by Steven Spielberg, who in only his second feature film, (his first was The Sugarland Express) blends moments of humour, suspense, and horror perfectly. The shark attacks are graphically realistic. It's moments of horror are truly shocking, such as the shark attack at the film's beginning. One would be remiss not to mention John Williams's terrific and classic score for Jaws, as it sets the tone perfectly for the scenes with the shark. Roy Scheider, Richard Dreyfuss, Robert Shaw, and Murray Hamilton turn in excellent performances.
As for the DVD itself, the picture is flawless, the flesh tones are perfect, and the sound is excellent. The film is in Anamorphic Widescreen (designed for Widescreen TV 's) with a 2:35:1 ratio, which only adds to the enjoyment of the film as you are seeing it as the director intended it to be seen.
The extras on Disc One of this 30th Anniversary Edition include Deleted Scenes and Outtakes, and From The Set: A Never-Before-Available Interview with director Steven Spielberg.

When director Steven Spielberg set out to create the motion picture "Jaws", he had no idea how much trouble the film would cause him nor just how incredible, exciting, and important it would eventually become.
The film ventures into the world of Amity Island, which is feverishly awaiting its July 4th holiday weekend to create quite a business for the town. But when a flesh-eating Great White shark enters the town's beaches, it is up to the town sherriff (Roy Scheider in perhaps his best performance outside of "The French Connection"), a geeky graduate scientist (the always admirable Richard Dreyfuss), and the town fish gamer (played by Robert Shaw, the film's best performance by far) to save the day.
Spielberg plays the tension like a sneaky household cat ready to pounce on a silly toy. He knows exactly when his temptations will take over and when he will strike, but the audience is left to guess in fear as the shark terrorizes the small island. What makes "Jaws" so great is not just the fine soundtrack by John Williams, the special effects and the lovable shark machine "Bruce", but the fact that it allows the childish fears in all of us to creep up on us and still make the hair on our necks tingle.
Spielberg would later create even more popular and elaborate masterpieces such as "E.T" and "Saving Private Ryan", but for those who truly enjoy film and its impact on an audience, "Jaws" can certainly bite with the best of them.
