Jaws

"I used to hate the water." "I can't imagine why."

When someone says the word 'jaws' to you, it inevitably conjures up the man-eating great white shark in Steven Spielberg's 1975 thriller masterpiece. It's hard to imagine a time when the word 'jaws' didn't do this. But that's what Spielberg's film "Jaws" did, as well as birth the notion of the summer blockbuster and make people not want to swim in the ocean.

Join us—Pete Wright and Andy Nelson—on this week's episode of Rash Pixel's "Movies We Like" as we chat about this film, the next in our Richard D. Zanuck series. We talk about why this film works so well and how it tapped into people's natural fears. We discuss the unfortunate repercussion this film had on people's understanding of sharks and how Peter Benchley, the author of the book and co-screenwriter, now wishes he hadn't written the book for that very reason. We talk about the great cast headed up by Roy Scheider, Richard Dreyfuss, and Robert Shaw, and what they bring to the table as well as the technical mastery the crew added to this film, from the amazing cinematography to the sound and, of course, John Williams' unforgettable score. And we discuss the amazing new Blu-ray that Universal just released, creating a finished product that looks like it could have been shot yesterday. It's one of the greatest films out there and well worth talking about. Listen in!
