Jaws 1975

From Amazon: 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...

Jaws Movie Review by Chris (1/15/2009)

In modern film, especially the 21st century, it's extremely hard to find what some may call the "perfect film". A movie which everyone enjoys, is entertaining and thrills it's audience all the way through.

Jaws Movie Review by Jarrod (12/18/2008)

That the shark does not actually appear until at least an hour into the movie is what makes 'Jaws' so thrilling and suspenseful. Until it fully reveals itself, it is a silent, unseen predator, lurking below the waters, its dorsal fin poking ominously above the surface. We have an idea of what a shark looks like, but we...

Jaws Movie Review by Simon (8/28/2007)

It's a testament to Spielberg's skill that Jaws has hardly aged since its original record-breaking release. Oh, sure, the outfits are dated and the effects for the shark probably cost as much as about a frame of anything released by Pixar these days. But the suspense and the conflict of the film remain razor sharp, and...

Jaws Movie Review by Movie Addict (8/25/2007)

I don't know if this was Steven Spielberg Day or Shark Day.

I started the day with Spielberg's first theatrical film, The Sugarland Express. I then watched an entertaining shark film, Red Water. I ended my afternoon viewing with Spielberg's second feature, the one that put him on the map, Jaws. Two Spielbergs and two...

Jaws Movie Review by Seth C (10/17/2006)

Something funny about me is that even though I love film as much as I do, I rarely check out older films that were released before my birth in 1981. If a film didn't hit the screens until the late eighties then more than likely I've never seen it. It's not that I have anything against older films, it's just that with new...
