We're going to need a bigger boat: "Jaws" The # 1 movie on my list

"Jaws" which was released in 1975 is my favorite horror/suspense movie of all time. Steven Spielberg who directed the film created a masterpiece. It was the movie that started the whole concept of the summer blockbuster. It was incredibly influential. It gave so many beachgoers second thoughts about entering the water and with good reason. The movie depicts horrific scenes of swimmers becoming meals of a 25 foot Great White shark. Everything about the movie is excellent from the acting of Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw, and Richard Dreyfuss to the unforgettable music of John Williams. It ranks as one of Spielberg's finest films and one of the greatest movies ever made. Feel free to give your thoughts on "Jaws."
