Comments– I can finally say that I have seen the entirety of Jaws! Before today, that wasn’t the case. I had seen bits and pieces and knew exactly what the movie was about, but I never sat down and watched this classic movie from start to finish. NOW I can understand the hype- Jaws is awesome! I really don’t need to explain this movie too much because just about everyone has seen it a dozen times (at least). I didn’t realize that two famous quotes were from this movie- “That’s some bad hat, Harry” and “You’re gonna need a bigger boat”. Overall Jaws blew me away with the visual effects, being from 1975. I can’t believe this movie has been remade yet…it probably shouldn’t be, mind you, but that means nothing nowadays. Obviously Jaws is worth your time. Great-Incredible.
We actually went out and bought the entire Jaws series on DVD the other day, so you can expect the three sequels to be posted soon! Thanks for reading.
Branden has been a film fan since he was young, roaming the halls of Blockbuster Video, trying to find the grossest, scariest looking VHS covers to rent and watch alone in the basement. It wasn’t until recently, though, that Branden started seeking out the classics of cinema, and began to develop his true passion for the art form. Branden approaches each film with the unique perspective of having studied the art from the inside, having both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in acting. He has been a film critic since 2010, and has previously written for Inside Pulse Movies, We Love Cult, and Diehard Gamefan. His biggest achievement as a film critic, to date, has been founding Cinefessions and turning it from a personal blog to a true film website, housing hundreds of film and television reviews, and dozens of podcasts.
