“When it comes to thrillers, no movie has been able to top Jaws, although many have tried. And, as the years go by, it seems increasingly unlikely that anything will come close.” – James Berardinelli, Reel Views

Everybody out of the water! When a bloodthirsty great white shark starts chowing down on the summer tourists off Amity Island, it’s up to local police chief Martin Brody to hunt down the deadly underwater menace and send it packing to that great fish fry in the sky. Steven Spielberg’s expertly-crafted rollercoaster ride of a monster movie not only changed our swimming habits (after seeing this movie, who could possibly dip a toe into the ocean without hearing, just for second, those two ominous musical notes?), it also redefined our summer movie-going habits by creating, in one fell swoop, the “summer blockbuster” as we know it today. A true Hollywood classic from a time when fun popcorn entertainment could also be smart, stylish and scary, Jaws has everything you need in a movie: kids in danger, drunken sea shanties, mass panic on the beach and Richard Dreyfus in a cage. Also starring Roy Scheider and Robert Shaw. (Dir. by Steven Spielberg, 1975, USA, 124 mins., Rated PG)
