Love this...absolutely love this! Glad to see both A Very Brady Sequel and Gremlins 2 on the list. Love that Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom made the cut as well. Still my favourite of the series, flaws and all.

"Jaws" es la obra maestra de un director que paulatinamente a ido perdiendo interés y una de las últimas grandes obras del séptimo arte. Hacer una secuela no era tarea fácil y la unica manera de salir airoso de la prueba era intentar reunir al mismo equipo técnico artístico de "Jaws". El resultado es una más que digna secuela que no pretende aportar nada con respecto al original sino únicamente volver a trasladar al espectador la angustia de una tranquila comunidad ante la amenaza de un irracional y monstruoso depredador. Y esto se logra en manos del eficiente artesano Jeannot Szwart que no pretende emular en ningún momento a su predecesor. Roy Scheider y Murray Hamilton vuelven a ceder su talento a sus respectivos personajes de Sheriff y Alcalde y el diseño de producción de Joe Alves y la música de Williams logran que la fórmula vuelva a funcionar contra todo pronóstico. consulta por internet medico por internet pediatra por internet medico por internet doctor por internet dermatologo por internet veterinario por internet veterinario por internet psychologist online consulta por internet abogado por internet abogado por internet abogado por internet abogado por internet abogado por internet psicologo por internet doctor por internet psicologo por internet abogado por internet abogado por internet Pero Szwart no es Spielberg (y aquí podemos apreciar mejor que nunca la importanica del director como coordinador de los distintos talentos que conforman una película) no logrando repetir ese tono épico, casi mítico que Spielberg insufla en su film y que es lo que hace que "Tiburón" sea un espectáculo irrepetible.
