A-Z #105: Jaws

You can pick up hundreds of DVDs for a round-pound each - it doesn't matter. It's never about quantity, it's about quality. A-Z is my way of going through my collection, from A-Z, and understanding why I own the films ... or you can tell me why I should sell 'em

Obviously, since I bought the film, I have watched it many times. I have even watched the film at my school with some of the kids during a Film Club. They enjoyed it, but not half as much as I expected. I have a feeling that the slow-tension that builds throughout the film was a little bit too slow for the kids. I only hope they appreciate the idea of the shark swimming underneath their feet when they are swimming about on their summer holidays.

  1. A steal of a purchase at the $5 bin. It's amazing Spielberg didn't get nominated.
