Can it truly be the holidays without watching ‘The original summer blockbuster’, Steven Spielberg’s 1975 classic, at the cinema?

When a great white shark stakes a claim off the waters of the peaceful community Amity Island, police chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) wants to close the beaches, but mayor Larry Vaughn (Murray Hamilton) overrules him, fearing that the loss of tourist revenue will cripple the town over the July 4th celebrations. Ichthyologist Matt Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) and grizzled ship captain Quint (Robert Shaw) offer to help Brody capture the killer beast and the trio engage in an epic battle of man vs. nature. Verna Fields’ impeccable editing and John Williams’ swirling score round off the tremendous casting of this 70s masterpiece. Jaws remains a classic not just for how it changed the film industry, but because it is an exquisitely made monster movie that tapped into universal human fears and did so with iconic style.
