Review

In the vastly overrated 1998 book Easy Riders, Raging Bulls, author Peter Biskind puts the blame for Hollywood's blockbuster mentality at least partially on Steven Spielberg's box-office success with this adaptation of Peter Benchley's bestselling novel. But you can't blame Spielberg for making a terrific movie, which Jaws definitely is. The story of a Long Island town whose summer tourist business is suddenly threatened by great-white-shark attacks on humans bypasses the potboiler trappings of Benchley's book and goes straight for the jugular with beautifully crafted, crowd-pleasing sequences of action and suspense supported by a trio of terrific performances by Roy Scheider (as the local sheriff), Richard Dreyfuss (as a shark specialist), and particularly Robert Shaw (as the old fisherman who offers to hunt the shark down). The sequences on Shaw's boat--as the three of them realize that in fact the shark is hunting them--are what entertaining moviemaking is all about. --Marshall Fine

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
VIDEO:

Jaws arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 2.35:1 encode.

Restoration:
The video transfer was struck from a recent restoration of the original camera negatives, supervised and approved by Steven Spielberg. Universal considered the original camera negative was the best quality and resolution for 4K scanning. All the scratches were carefully removed using a liquid gate process by Cineric, a top restoration post facility in New York. Then, the files were worked on by skilled technicians at Universal Studio, meticulously worked to balance colour, remove dirt and scratches and repair any additional frame damage on a shot by shot, frame by frame basis.

Video assessent: Considered the age of the movie (1975), this transfer is fantastic with spot-on contrast and stunning clarity into the far distance. Black levels are inky with excellent delineation of the various gradations and small background objects hiding in the shadows. The video displays sharp, distinct definition in the hair and clothing of the cast, revealing wrinkles and pores in the faces of actors. You can clearly make out every detail and objects in Quint's boat, from the scratches and imperfections on the wood to the bottles and fishing tools hanging along the walls. Bruce the Shark, in particular, shows a few scars not seen before, and its fish skin is looking especially slimmer and smoother than ever. The colour palette receives a generous boost without feeling artificial, especially in the bold primaries. Overall, this is a magnificent and splendid presentation of a great classic. (5/5)

AUDIO:

The original mono recording is also given the restoration treatment and receives a massive upgrade with this DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 soundtrack.

Format: DVD
I own and actually have seen this brand-new blu-ray transfer. It is amazing. It may not look quite like a shiny new produced-in-2012 release, but it sure doesn't look like a movie from 1975 either. The detail, colour, sharpness and contrast are far superior to the previous DVD releases. As for the suggestion that the restoration isn't recent and this is the same transfer because the 2005 release also didn't show the colour fading and tears shown in the original camera negative shots shown in the restoration feature - that's false. Very false. This 2012 version is the first time they went back to the original camera negatives to do the transfer. Previous versions were struck from a new master print pieced together using the best available 35mm prints Spielberg and company could find after discovering the original master print rotting away in the cans in Universal's storage facility (google Film Preservation Wikipedia for more details). The time and considerable expense of restoring the original camera negs was done as part of Universal's 100th anniversary campaign. Rest assured, this IS a new transfer and it is the best that Jaws has ever looked and sounded. (Believe Steven Spielberg if you don't believe me.) And lastly, the 1080p blu-ray image blows the upconverted 480p DVD image out of the water (and the 7.1 DTS Master HD soundtrack ain't bad either).

This digibook is simply amazing!
The it's packaging and the blu ray picture and sound are mind-blowing.
In case your wondering this is exactly the same as the American, it just comes with a removable sticker in French and once you remove it its all English.

This is a fantastic Blu Ray - it was great to watch this movie with no surprises... other than seeing a transfer whose colour and contrast was better than I've seen before. There are no digital "enhancements" or additional scenes, or anything else that would detract from such a perfect film.

I ordered this movie because I am a lover of sharks. A lot of people think that is wrong but they also have to realize we are going into their territory. They were here before us. They will always be on a mission to sniff out new things and sometimes take on their own action. For instance a Great White can kill you or just take a bite or so. They don't feast on humans because that is not their nature. All sharks were here before us. As hateful as sharks can be, we are the ones that are basically treading on private property. Just pick your spots carefully. A Great White will take the first bite but also spits it out. Can't blame the sharks for our pain and suffering because we are the ones to blame. They really don't know what humans are. They are just looking for food. I am sorry if you don't like my review but it is all true.

It's a great movie, a well known classic that you can enjoy many times. The film is worth owning and I won't waste any more time on the film itself. I've owned the DVD and can say the Blu-Ray simply looks fantastic by comparison. Clearer, cleaner, crisper, better colours, etc. The film received a proper remastering. Bu-Ray is the one to buy. Enjoy!

I generally feel like older movies don't transfer well to Blu-ray. But with Jaws, I was pleasantly surprised at how clear the picture was. While the scenery and fashions do date the film, the picture quality is quite good.
Also, the bonus features, including a 2 hour making-of documentary are very well done. Even if you are someone who doesn't generally watch bonus features, you will find this documentary very interesting and well-paced.
