Sponsored Video: Universal Studios Classic Thriller ‘Jaws’ Releases on Blu-ray Disc
Have you really ever wanted to go into the ocean ever since seeing Jaws? Admit it, you probably haven’t. You might have wanted to, sure, but in the back of your mind you were haunted by the possibility of an epic-sized great white shark like Jaws looming underneath your toes, sight unseen. Okay, maybe it’s just me, but back in 1975, Jaws freaked me out. It stayed with me for some time. Even thinking about it kind of creeps me out. Fortunately, with the release of Jaws on Blu-ray, you and I get to be freaked out all over again.
That’s right, Jaws is set to debut September 3rd on Blu-ray disc from Universal Studios. The soundtrack – “duh, duh…duh, duh, duhduhduhduhduh!!!” – still reverberates through our minds. That is the definition of an effective film score, one of the true classics. Then there was the cinematography…nothing but bright blue waters, silent before something lurks, ready to attack. And of course there are the classic lines like “I think you’re gonna need a bigger boat.” Understatement of the year, that line. Great ad-lib.
Jaws is a film that would help launch director Steven Spielberg’s career into the pantheon of top notch filmmakers. He’s still there. It’s the type of movie that has been often imitated and never duplicated. Countless water scare affairs have tried, but none have succeeded in quite the same way. Time to revisit it, don’t you think? Take a look at the video below, which highlights the film’s Blu-ray release. Then look for the disc – with a re-mastered 1080p image and tons of special features – to relive a modern classic. Just make sure you are not planning a beach trip any time real soon. Enjoy!
