Jaws

Jaws ★★★★

A-

absolute banger. for some reason, i'd never seen Jaws (partially because, again, similarly to Psycho i'd seen *so* many clips & iconic scenes that i knew big spoilers beforehand), but boy is it a classic for a reason — expertly built tension and terror from the very start that builds to a near-perfect third act. wish some parts of the film were more character-focused, but that's a *very* minor gripe. bonus points for getting a genuine jumpscare out of me (the scene where a character is exploring a boat underwater)!
