100. Jaws (A)

I've never watched this before, largely because sharks are a particular phobia of mine, so it never made it high on my priorities list despite all the praise it gets. It turns out that the actual mechanical shark is so fake looking that it wasn't that big an issue (apart from the bits where they use an actual shark). People tend to talk about the film's influence on blockbusters, but the opening one imagines also helped generate the modern horror formula. And thankfully, in the end, the member of the trio most deserving of death due to stupidity is the one who bites it.
