For the negative connotations that "summer blockbusters" now evoke, it should be remembered that Jaws was an excellent movie. The cast, including Roy Scheider, Richard Dreyfuss, and Robert Shaw, gave award-caliber performances. Spielberg's direction was top-notch and an early example of the brilliant movie-making career that would follow. John Williams simple but chilling musical score perfectly set the mood for the story that would make audiences "afraid to go in the water" for years to come.
This Memorial Day Weekend, if you're looking for a movie to watch, why not revisit the classic Jaws. And if you still have never seen it, what better time then now to give it a look?
