Being 21, I never got to see Jaws on the big screen, so when it was re-released I knew I had to go. And I am so incredibly glad that I went!
I cannot simply put in to words how excited I was last night when the lights went down and the theatre was flooded with DUN-DUN! DUN-DUN! The nerd readings were off the chart, I asure you.
Sometimes I forget just how stunning that film is in everything it has to offer. The shots, the camera work, their use of light and colour. The characters are incredible and so well played down to their little ticks and twitches. The interaction between them. The presence of the Shark. The scenes on Quint's boat are just epic and there are so many little things that you miss when watching the film at home for the 20,000th time (or at least it was that was with me).
All in all, it was just brilliant. I got the same excitement/fear from the very first time my dad showed me this film when I was 8, but also got to appreciate it on a whole new level. BRING ON JAWS II!
To sum, JAWS - WINS \o/
