Jaws: The Beginning

Jaws

Sound in the John Williams score.  By the way, I’ve talked about this before but I’m not sure I have on this site.  Do you think that Jaws has had the most profound impact on real life than any other movie in history?  I argue that it does.

Yes, there are political movies and such that cause a rise out of people.  Some movies even lead to protest.  But can you honestly say a movie has had more of an effect on this wide an audience?

Put it this way.  How many people in the world do you think swim in the ocean and always think of Jaws when they do?  A few hundred million?  And since the movie came out (1975)?  It’s gotta be in the billions.  I mean people are still scared to swim in the ocean because of this movie and they will be for years to come.

Truly astounding.
