Jaws 2 (1978) Film Review by Gareth Rhodes

Jaws 2 (1978) Directed by Jeannot Szwarc. With Roy Scheider, Lorraine Gary, Murray Hamilton.

Released three years after Steven Spielberg’s seminal shark thriller, Jaws, this sequel directed by Frenchman Jeannot Szwarc, retains the suspenseful, satisfyingly B-movie feel of the first film, but with not quite the same amount of wit, in terms of character. 400 more words

DVD/Blu-ray News #1: The Last Embrace (1979).

The Last Embrace (1979) is one of those movies you mention to people — “a Hitchcock kinda thing directed by Jonathan Demme where Roy Scheider’s a government agent who’s really paranoid about someone being after him and it ends at Niagara Falls” — and they look at you like you’re nuts. 36 more words
