About this deal

And to this day, just shy of its 40th anniversary, it remains one of the greatest, most effective suspense films ever made. Again, it falls short of reference due to it's age, but there are some incredible moments of sheer brilliance that are not lost to new and impressive DSP chains effecting them. The untrained eye will probably not notice, but videophiles and hardcore Jaws purists with a big enough TV or projector might spot the image shifting and moving more than it ever has in past presentations.

Williams's minimalist score benefits from this immensely, exhibiting clean differentiation between the few instruments used in his orchestration. From the Set (SD, 9 min) — Originally produced and aired in 1974, this is a British news featurette hosted by Iain Johnstone that functions pretty much like a promotional piece with an interview of Spielberg and BTS footage.

For those fearing a real botched job from Universal, who has a tendency to “over clean” their transfers for catalogue titles, they can put those fears mostly to rest.

These are some quality scenes from the dusty archives that any fan of the movie will feel a sense of wide-eyed wonder and awe at watching. Indianapolis, Quint acquired first-hand knowledge of the predators that made him the most respected shark hunter in the area. I later read the novel in school, the version without the steamy affair between Hooper and Ellen Brody, and I loved that too. So, restoration artists scanned the image and went through each frame, correcting scratches, lines and other issues using complex image editors.The Orca, Quint's ramshackle boat, becomes its own little island, ever so slowly disintegrating and sinking as their safety slips away. Quite a lot of discussion on the use of non professional actors, and some interviews with Islanders from Martha's Vinyard that featured in the movie. It gave rise to the notion of the “Summer Blockbuster”, but don't let this put you off, it's absolutely nothing like anything you're likely to see from the likes of Michael Bay.

The audio is outstanding and the extras, while older, are comprehensive and unforgettable, with decades of replay value.Quint helms the expedition to destroy the killer shark, but soon discovers a monster even deadlier than the nightmares of his past. The first thing you're gonna notice about this absolutely fantastic DTS-HD Master audio track is that it's one of the few that is delivered exploiting the full range of the formats capabilities. The footage is made of short deleted scenes or extended bits that either lead into or follow other segments that are in the film.
