Dec 23, 2016"You're gonna need a bigger boat." Director Steven Spielberg explores onto the scene with the horror-thriller Jaws. When the mangled remains of a swimmer are discovered, small-town police chief Martin Brody comes to believe that a rogue shark is prowling the waters and attempts to close down the beaches. Roy Scheider, Richard Dreyfuss, and Robert Shaw lead the cast and deliver some pretty good performances. But the real star of course is the shark, and Spielberg does an excellent job at giving it a real sense of terror. And one cannot overestimate the impact of John Williams' score, which heightens the tension and suspense, taking it to the next level. Playing on our primal fears, Jaws is a terrifying monster movie.Dann M Super Reviewer

May 28, 2016It's man against shark in this terrifyingly realistic thriller. Spielberg has created the most well known shark movie ever made while John Williams theme music is recognized and still joked about to this day. A brutal and bloody film that will leave some people wondering if they should go in the water next time they're at the beach.Peter B Super Reviewer
