 Jaws on Blu-Ray
Finally!! The movie that made us afraid to go in the water has been released on Blu-Ray. Unlike the DVD releases which used a copy of the film, the Blu-Ray utilizes the original film negative. Except, the original negative was plagued with scratches and other glitches so they went in digitally and fixed it. A great release from Universal, the extras are awesome and includes interviews with Roy Scheider shortly before his death.

I got to see this on the big screen for the first time last year at the Colonial Theatre in Keene NH, a new print that was stunning. Watched the Rifftrax version last week, and it made me realize once again what a great movie it is. The clips I've seen of the Blu-ray transfer look pretty amazing.

I ordered the Blu-Ray yesterday and in addition I was able to get an 18 pack of Narragansett beer in the 1975 retro can. Jaws fans will remember the scene when Quint crushed the can and Hooper followed up by crushing the styrofoam cup. Narragansett ran a contest to get people to recreate that scene using the retro can.

This is the only one I've seen.

If anyone is going to the CDF Roundup and wants a can let me know. I can't promise it'll be full of beer though.

 Re: Jaws on Blu-Ray
My one and only chance to see this movie on the big screen came--and went-- in 1975 when my family went to the theater to see "Jaws". When we got there, there was exactly one seat left for the movie. I don't remember if we saw another movie instead or went home, or what, but I do remember being pretty bummed. Being only 10 years old at the time, I had very limited say in when and what movie the family wanted to see, and it usually involved alot of pleading. To this day, I still don't understand why we didn't go back another day to see it. It's like we tried once, and that was it; we had our chance. *shrugs*

Of course, when "Jaws 2" came out, I made damn sure to see that one at the theater. Too bad it paled compared to the original.
