Not one word about the so-called 3D blu-ray that some sites were boasting about, yet appeared to have disappeared from existence. 3D version = first day buy. 2D version = not buying at all.

I'm a child of the 70's and as always in the extreme minority, lol, I have never understood the love for this movie.. certainly not a BAD MOVIE, there are moments of extreme tension, but most of the performances are cheesy and of course the "shark" falls flat.. for the record I feel the same way about Poltergeist and Close Encounters..just excessive cheese that hasn't aged well..Fedex Courier

@Julian. I don't know about superb. I was just trying not to embarrass the site and all its readers. As for the Uni exec, I understand your frustration. He's going to plug whatever he can, of course, but I think he was really answering "what are your favorite Blu-rays that you worked on". I couldn't remember exactly what I asked because as I was talking, the JAWS ride exploded behind him.
But despite the corporate allegiance, and what some might call past mistakes, their 100th Anniversary titles seem to be much better restorations than before, and I could hear the film passion in his voice as he answered. He might say Universal titles are his favorites, but he certainly appeared to love working on them.
And JAWS looks fantastic. Anyone who's a fan will love the PQ on this. I just hope the Hitchcock collection looks as good (my favorite is VERTIGO, which I've seen in 70mm).
Cheers and thanks for reading, everyone.
