  • Jaws



    The Masterpiece that is Jaws!!
    Spielberg’s first!!
    The first blockbuster!!

    This movie is literally perfect. The musical score instantly lets people know what it is. 

    The best scenes of this film aren’t even with a shark. The scene where Brody is sitting at his table after a crappy day and his little son is mimicking everything he does. Most notably the scene on the Orca where they share scar stories.

    The navy seals of firefighters.

    This is one of the very few movies I saw in 2017 that got me to cry. The last couple of scenes get me.

    All the acting is solid with standouts from Jennifer Connelly and Josh Brolin. Great musical score and good cinematography.

    It reminds me of a war film with how it’s presented and I love it.

    Just fine , nothing great.

    Leonardo DiCaprio is fantastic like he always is, but he can’t save this biopic. Eastwood presents the story in a way that seems unrealistic and unfocused.
