One of my all-time favorite films, Steven Spielberg's JAWS, is finally coming to Blu-ray. Although there is no street date yet, the release is now in the works. The best part? Spielberg assures fans that there will be no digital enhancements made to the movie - or any of his others:

"There's going to be no more digital enhancements or digital additions to anything based on any film I direct. I'm not going to do any corrections digitally to even wires that show ... At this point right now I think letting movies exist in the era, with all the flaws and all of the flourishes, is a wonderful way to mark time and mark history."

It's great to hear that Spielberg has learned his lesson from the E.T. debacle. If only he could pass that wisdom onto his pal George Lucas...

Often regarded as one of the greatest films of all time, the 1975 classic stars Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw, Richard Dreyfuss, Lorraine Gary and Murray Hamilton. Its written by Peter Benchley and Carl Gottlieb, as based on the novel by Benchley.

Extra Tidbit: Who else is excited to have Bruce in HD? Let's hope for some new special features on the release!

You'd think that a certain buddy of Spielberg's would take the hint.

Awesome news for an awesome movie!

Thank God at least one filmmaker has realised the charm that comes from older movies. Adding a sophisticated and realistic shark into the movie now would completely ruin the movie for me now.

Indeed one of the greatest movies around. Remember seeing it as a kid and scaring the living hell outta me. That being said doesnt sound like its necessary for a blu ray conversion unless your one of those people that like to upgrade their films.
