  • TooFab
It's the film that made us all afraid to go back into the water: "Jaws."The 1975 movie, which opened 40 years ago today, helped launch the career of Steven Spielberg, was nominated for Best Picture and took home Oscars for Best Film Editing, Dramatic Score and Sound.It also made us all think twice before going for a swim.The flick, which starred Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw and Richard Dreyfuss, would spawn three sequels -- "Jaws 2," "Jaws 3-D," and "Jaws: The Revenge" -- which randomly starred celebs like Dennis Quaid, Lea Thompson and yes, even Michael Caine. 40 years after the original movie's release, we've sadly said goodbye to a lot of the franchise's stars, including Sheriff Brody himself and young Judith Barsi, who played Michael's daughter in "Revenge" and was murdered by her father shortly after the film was released.From the tragic to the impressive, check out the gallery

Blu-ray Review: ‘All Dogs Go to Heaven’ Didn’t End the World

All Dogs Go to Heaven was direct competition to Disney’s The Little Mermaid in theaters way back in the late ’80s. Both features were released on the same day and audiences headed to the movie with the teen mermaid in a shell-bra rather rather than the gambling mongrel.
