Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water…

2 Aug

More than thirty five years later and it’s still not safe to go in the water. In honor of Discovery’s fabled Shark Week, I’ve decided to throw a little bit of Jaws lovin’ into your lives. This film is still a classic and while it’s not one of my favorites, it’s a fantastic film that combines action, thrills and drama pretty well. The well-known theme that builds suspense and terror like few other themes out there still sounds as terrifying as ever. Not well known is the fact that Jaws mixes a nice range of tense and fearful strings while also featuring calming, barely audible piano keys. Kinda like being on both the serene yet also unforgiving ocean I suppose…

Anyways, among Star Wars, Indiana Jones and even Harry Potter, people often forget that John Williams composed this great score. Not gonna review this one but I definitely think everyone should check it out if you haven’t already (it’s a classic for a reason). What’s a better time than Shark Week?
