Jaws is my favorite movie. It surpasses the Dark Knight and the Dark Knight surpasses most everything else. I think the upcoming Batman v Superman film will take 2nd place in my list, but still, Jaws takes #1.
The fact that this film held so many problems at its core to begin with, yet still somehow became a masterpiece that made audiences afraid to go back in the water and terrified that they went into the water in the first place.
The effects still hold up extremely well by today's standards...perhaps by the time my kids see it the film will look very aged...But I still doubt they will want to go to the beach for the rest of the week or month or do a backstroke in the nearest public pool.
Take a gigantic BITE outta that.
