Jaws(First Blockbuster)
Sure, we've all seen it, but this tense thriller is always worth another watch. It's one of those that you usually end up being gladly being sucked into if it happens to be on TV. Steven Spielberg made a huge splash in the industry when Jaws was released and made an unprecedented 100 million at the box office. Many blame the film for ushering in a new era where dollars meant more than substance, but I think Hollywood was always about the dollars, although the surge of “event movies” with huge budgets, advertising, and loads of hype all for crap movies is a long standing trend worth lamenting. But aside from any impact Jaws had on the industry, it still stands on its own as an exciting film based on the 1974 Peter Benchley novel. Roy Scheider, Richard Dreyfuss, and Robert Shaw represent all degrees of manliness and are all perfect, as is the phenomenal John Williams score. In the off chance you have not seen this movie, you should really get with it and rent it today.
