Here’s how you can watch every movie in the Jaws series

Now that you know you can watch the entirety of the Jaws franchise on HBO Max, you really ought to consider whether you should. Because even if Spielberg’s original is a cinematic masterwork as worthy of study and dissection as Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane, or Ridley Scott’s Alien … the same cannot be said of its sequels.

Most folks in the know would actually tell you all three of those sequels — 1978’s Jaws 2, 1983’s Jaws 3-D, and 1987’s Jaws: The Revenge — are more worthy of skipping altogether. And it’s hard to argue that point, as the films get decidedly worse as you trudge through them, a fact confirmed by the rapidly descending scores each boasts on Rotten Tomatoes, with Jaws 2 netting a 58% fresh, Jaws 3-D dropping down to 12%, and Jaws: The Return scoring a well-deserved 0%.

Regarding the obvious lack of quality in each of the Jaws sequels, it’s worth noting that Steven Spielberg was not involved in the making of any of them. Still, those sequels are not entirely without their charms.

In fact, Jaws 2 is actually a decent enough follow-up film that doesn’t entirely eschew the bold style that made the original such a singular experience. As for Jaws 3-D, aside from the overwrought absurdity of its plot and the kitsch value of its abhorrent eighties style 3-D effects, it often thrills in the way many cheesy, B-level monster movies do. Jaws: The Revenge, on the other hand, has little redeeming value. But it’s absurdly watchable in that “so bad it’s funny” sort of way, and yeah, it’s a genuine hoot to see the great Michael Caine slumming it so shamelessly.

Of course, since you now realize that you can now watch every Jaws film ever made on HBO Max, the question rightly becomes, “Will you?”
