5.0 out of 5 stars Fab film but must fault the DVD, 22 Sep 2005
By 
This review is from: Jaws (2 Disc Special Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
I completely agree with the review of the film, it is my personal No.1 but i must criticise the new DVD package. Originally a 2-hour documentary was made in 1995 for the 20th aniv. in the USA and in 1997 a docu. called 'In the Teeth of Jaws' was shown on British TV with some great extra stuff about Robert Shaw and what a force of nature he was, and also about the Orca.
In 2000 for the 25th aniv DVD, this docu. was shown as a 50-minute edit which was fine and the DVD had good trailers and a few outtakes and extras. Now for the 30th aniv, they have given us the full 2-hour 1995 docu. but left out the Robert Shaw and Orca stuff. Also they have taken out the trailers and added about 10 seconds of a deleted scene.
I have never seen a new DVD which took stuff out as well as adding it and it's obvious thay have plenty in the can which will come out slowly in time. The Robert Shaw stuff was brilliant. It talked about how he purposely needled Richard Dreyfuss to help the tension between the 2 characters and how he would drink Wild Turkey at 5am when he was picked up to go to the island and how they sent people to drink with him and keep him under control and when one passed out, they sent another!!!
In addition the sound effect of the whale that they hear in the cabin is suddenly different and the sound when the shark blows up is weak. Not sure about the Brody dialogue mentioned by someone else. Anyway, i'm giving the film 5 stars but the DVD 4. Enjoy the film anyway!!!!
