So I finally got around to watching this edit. This was a fun edit to watch. I liked most of the music selections. The amount of film "noise" and scratches etc. were not overly distracting and after awhile I didn't really notice it.

I liked the zoom in of Quint at the town hall meeting. The stutter =/repeat frames and audio, was a nice touch, and it was used sparingly and spaced out enough that I felt it wasn't overused. The USS Indianapolis footage was a cool sequence.

The two things that were worth the price of admission, so to speak, were:
1) The inclusion of the deleted scene of Quint at the music store buying the piano wire. I really don't know why they cut that scene from the movie.
2) The ending, I laughed.

I liked the DVD Menu designs and the drive-in theater transitions at the beginning and end.

As others have mentioned the narrative is a bit slow and the movie could have been shorter, but maybe that's just my short attention span and self-diagnosed ADD.

Anyway, I highly recommend this edit!

I could have sworn I wrote a review for this years ago. Maybe it got lost in the switch to IFDb. Maybe I never posted it. It's entirely possible that it's sitting in a word document on my old computer. Maybe some day I'll find it and post it here. Maybe, but for now, you get this review!

It's strange. Jaws is one of my all time favorite movies. It's a truly great film that I love dearly. So it's strange, in a way, that I love this edit, even though its goal is to make the film much, much worse. Of course, that is the charm of it all, and I really appreciate what TMBTM has done here. the music, the usage of other films, it all works wonders to accomplish the goal of the edit.

If I have one complaint it is that the edit is too long. The pacing is not quite there. This really needed to be a nonstop great white thriller, but it's a little slower than that.

All in all, though, great work here. Also, this features the greatest ending to any fan-made-anything ever.

Based on all the reviews glowing about this one, I thought it would be more entertaining, and while the editing is good for what it's trying to accomplish, I found the narrative to be somewhat bland and distracting. I suppose that was the point, because it is meant to be like a D-grade 70's sploitation flick, but taking Jaws and making it less interesting isn't the ideal watch for me, personally. As far as making it seem lower budget, yeah, TMBTM did a good job of that. I suppose I was expecting it to be funny or something. :p

TMBTM presents another grindhouse edit taking the popular Jaws film and turning it into something unique and original. The music choices made here are all great and the shark attack set to Iggy Pops go for the throat is perhaps one of the best fanediting sequences I've seen.

The edit could have benefited being 10 or 15mins shorter as some scenes for me don't really add anything to the overall story, also the splotching effects are at times distracting and over done though it didn't in any way take away the overall enjoyment I had.

Half way through the edit it's very apparent we've cut to Jaws 2 (one has to ask why Brody would call for another expert to examine the whale when he already has Hooper around) however this is all needed to set-up what is the best ending to a fanedit I've ever seen.

Overall this is a very enjoyable edit that doesn't take it self to seriously
