Been a long time since I saw this, but going back to give it the great review it deserves. It was super entertaining to watch with my friends and perfectly captures the 70s B-movie feel.

*I like the original Jaws, I'm new to grindhouse*. This was a fun watch. The narrative was changed enough to be interesting and the audio editing was seamless to my ears.
For the video quality, it felt a bit odd. I think it was pointed out already but my feelings are similar. The image degradation felt a bit too tacked on. Scratches on top of good quality footage was uncanny at first, but I got used to it... Maybe my reasoning is flawed but I feel like I have to take points down here.
Visual editing was good but I didn't understand the skipping and repeating that occured at times. Again, Im new to grindhouse but it felt odd to me.
Narrative was good and the changes made kept me engaged.
Enjoyment = achieved but not better than the original.
Overall, I appreciate the work that's been put into finding and matching all the new footage. It serve the new narrative well imo. And I think this what makes this edit so interesting.
Recommended for fans of grindhouse and big fish!

I rewatched the movie because I'm on the grindhouse bandwagon thanks to Gieferg.

The edit shows how sharp the line is between masterpiece & pulp. Directed by someone else and without Spielberg's amazing direction, the original film could have ended quite differently.

Great stuff - but some cuts (or missing reels) could have helped the narrative. It sometimes goes on too long and the pace is a bit slow. But everything else is just flawless - great editing, image manipulation and overall a great idea giving this masterpiece a grindhouse treatment.

Ideal viewing for a lazy Sunday afternoon!

'Jaws' was too scary for me but this Grindhouse masterpiece smooths off the cerrated edges of those teeth somewhat. Its the fan-edit U want to show someone who's been afraid of the water their whole life. Tell them they just need to put in some waterproof sports earbuds and even if the sharks are circling they will be bobbing away quite happily. With the right kind of groovy soundtrack playing of course. They will believe it seeing this.

Will be cool to see this remastered and upscaled and all that!!

By its very nature, very hard to rate the visuals + sound. Suffice to say it all works very well.
The added scenes + other films, all add to the experience.
The beach scene with the oriental lady was a work of genius.
Won't mention / spoil the ending, but adds to the experience.
In summary an immensely enjoyable experience.
