    Great Spielberg movie, particularly considering it was only his second theatrical work. I'd probably rank the first Indiana Jones as his greatest, it's a nearly perfect movie and it's amazing what he was able to deliver in 1981.

    Greatest Steven Spielberg movie. Greatest movie.

    Sure, a titty shot with Lorraine Gary would have made it a perfect movie, but it's still the closest thing to perfect that I've ever seen.

    Alex Kitner just HAD to have fve more minutes, huh. He died with pruned fingers!

    If Jaws was a Lucas film, he'd have made Bruce blink for the DVD release.

    Jaws is fucking awesome. As Murphy said above, it's one of those movies that is super hard to flip away from when you come across it.

    I don't trust sharks. So cunning. So cagey. So sneaky...

    My favorite Steven Spielberg movie is 1941. One of the best movies ever.

    Shit, I just said that Jaws was practically perfect, but I forgot my biggest gripe. A gripe I've never heard anybody mention before.

    Hooper found Ben Gardner's head floating in the punctured hull of Gardner's boat. The boat was still floating. How the fuck was he killed? Did the shark ram into the boat's hull, knock Ben overboard, eat Ben's body and let his head float back into the hull...while leaving a tooth behind? Makes no sense. Clearly a 25 foot long Great White didn't swim INTO the breached hull, eat Gardner's body and swim back out.

    I forgive it, but I wonder why nobody else ever addresses it. All Spielberg would have to have done was make Gardner's head pop up next to Hooper, from outside of the hull. It would have had the same affect.

    Agree! Still remember the excitement of waiting on line for hours at the Kings Plaza movie theater in Brooklyn with all my friends (imagine anyone doing that now!), then seeing it with a packed audience ... I'd love to relive watching it onscreen like that.
