I just finished watching Jaws for probably the sixth or seventh time. It’s one of my favorite movies and I think it’s held up very well.
I’m not sure why I love it so much. Part of it is that it’s very scary but most of it is that it’s just a good movie. (And I do appreciate very good movies.) Quint’s speech about the shark that killed his crew gives me chills, no matter how many times I’ve heard it before.
It was just released on Blu-Ray for the first time and if you have a Blu-Ray player, you definitely need to upgrade for this movie. It felt like a totally new movie—it was very pretty.
And, as Entertainment Weekly noted, the blood is very red.
I’m sorry that Bekki didn’t love it, but that’s okay. I love it enough for both of us, and I’m pretty sure Jenny loves it enough for an entire city of people. 😉
