Jaws has come back to the big screen in all its digitally remastered glory, no 3D conversion, no playing around adding CGI scenes, just the original movie in crystal clear shark attacking masterpiece.
Jaws – Film Review – We’re Going To Need A Bigger Boat!
As a child, Jaws used to scare the living daylights out of me, with its suspense and it’s scary bits and all this was on a 20 inch TV and VHS with no surround sound!
Now Jaws is celebrating Universal’s 100th anniversary and that famous great white shark has been digitally remastered with a 4K picture to delight and terrify a new generation as well as those that were lucky to see it on the big screen the first time round!
Dur Dum, Dur Dum!
Right from that moment when that famous John Williams score starts, you just know that your childhood fears of the water are all going to raise their ugly head again. I can’t really say much about Jaws that people don’t already know, it’s a classic movie that has to be seen on the big screen.
Jaws was Stephen Spielberg‘s third film, released in 1975 to an opening weekend of $7 million and the greatest shark movie is still pulling in fans today.
This cinema re-release has been remastered and the picture quality is sharper, brighter and much more colourful, which all adds to the enjoyment of a film that is still exciting to watch. The 4K digital version adds to the feel of the film and it’s almost as if the film has only just been made.
There were some scenes that did seem a little blurry and the surround mix isn’t overly amazing, but the sound is clear non-the-less and that famous John Williams soundtrack sounds brilliant in a cinema environment.
So Excited By Jaws On The Big Screen I Just Had To Tweet About It!

Jaws, An All Time Classic
What I really love about this re-release of Jaws it’s not been overly tweaked, that famous “fake” shark is still the same, no CGI has been added to try to improve scenes that would normal spoil a classic and best of all the Hollywood big wigs have left it as 2D and not given it that terrible 3D conversion that seems to be the craze lately.
Jaws was directed by Stephen Spielberg and stars Roy Scheider as Chief Brody, Richard Dreyfuss as oceanographer Matt Hoope, Robert Shaw as shark hunter Quint.
Overall Thoughts For Jaws
Let’s face it folks Jaws IS a classic movie, yes we’ve probably seen it countless times on TV, but until you see the Jaws on the big screen you are missing out on the sheer joy of an 70s classic.
Try to catch Jaws on the big screen if you can and just enjoy the nostalgia
