probably the first time i realised (and I was 6 at the time) that this movie was WAAAAAY cooler than other stuff out there. I didn't really understand what this crazy old sea dog was rattling on about but he was so unhinged and so utterly compelling to watch at the the same time I just knew this was movie gold. Jaws got me into movies - from that day, I was hooked. Thank god I was born at the right time!

Make movies like they used to in the 70s and early 80s. No more remakes, prequels and other crap! This scene encapsulates all that was great about cinema at that time. Shame it is lost.

Give an actor of the caliber of Robert Shaw a speech like this and he'll eat up the screen and he did, drawing you in with those staring blue eyes of his and that hint of craziness in his voice. It's more spellbinding than the shark itself which is just a prop anyway. Most horror directors today focus on CGI props now instead of character and psychology like this masterful piece of writing did and it worked brilliantly.
