Tonight we watched the original "Jaws". It's interesting to me how a good plot can still be effective, even if the effects seem corny by our modern standards. The intensity of filming from the shark's perspective (supposedly due to the fact that the dummy was hard to film) reminds me of some of Alfred Hitchcock's earlier works. And you can't beat that salty old fisherman. Another classic movie to check off the list.
