Jaws 
Near-perfect
3.5/4 stars

The second-half of the film is unforgettable. I felt like it was 10 minutes too long. But, we needed that time to build up to the climatic fishing trip. Now, for as good as this film is, it also ruined the film industry, or at least started the decline. This film broke all the rules, such as you can't release a film that does not have a bonafide star and you can't release a film in the summer. Spielberg did, and he won. But, with this film, and then with Star Wars 2 years later, the American film industry only wanted to release summer blockbusters, with the occasional Oscar bait thrown in, now we've gotten to the point that the summer has basically become the dumping ground for bloated CGI-ed crap.

John Williams' score is also near-perfect and he won the Academy Award for it.
