The first one is the only one that is accountable for.

My pick for Spielberg's third best. There are those however, who make a case for it being his best.

I actually like the second one better than the first, yes, it does lose the suspense of the first film, but the stakes are raised higher here, because more people are terrorized & the shark's demise is better, Brody really turned the tables on it, plus we get a more realistic view of politicians who are more concerned about profits than people's lives

First Jaws movie is an alltime classic. The others were just a cash grab.

My copy of First Jaws is so dark, I mean the light and colors. I did not like it, I couldn't watch the movie. I hope there are other better versions (or perhaps that's how the director wanted the movie to look?!

Is your copy a DVD or the recent Blu-ray? If it's the Blu-ray, it's probably what Spielberg wanted. You might try turning up the brightness level of your TV while watching it if you feel it's too dark. I do that when I feel a picture is darker than I like. In fact, with BDs my brightness level gets a workout. They are frequently too dark for my taste.

Hi Cavardossi,
My copy is a DVD. What did you mean by BDs?

BD is the accepted shorthand for Blu-ray Disc.

The first one by a landslide! The original is contender for one of the greatest films of all time, so no contest. Still burns me that Spielberg did NOT get nominated Best Director. Seriously? It's one of the best directed films ever!

The original movie worked because the shark didn't..
Couple yellow bouys with Williams score and Shaws Indiannapolis monologue...and you have a masterpiece via lateral thnking and misadventure..

Even after seeing the original JAWS as a kid, I always liked the later series entry Jaws 3 best.

As a Midwesterner, the original was so far removed--cuz we ain't got no oceans 'round these here parts--that it didn't scare or really fascinate me. I could better grasp the concept of Jaws 3: that being, a baby great white shark confined to, and then its larger mother menacing, an aquatic park--even though it was still coastal-situated Sea World.

The script provided for some tense moments--especially, when momma Jaws threatened some trapped tourists in an underwater tunnel. The requisite open water attacks on water skiers, scuba divers, and swimmers were done well, too. And while the 3D effects dampened the overall quality of the movie, the cast wasn't shabby: Dennis Quaid, Louis Gossett, Jr., and Lea Thompson were all on the verge of becoming A-listers, at the time!
