8. Jaws Steven Spielberg's pop version of "Moby-Dick"

8. Jaws
Steven Spielberg's pop version of "Moby-Dick" invented the summer blockbuster in 1975, and you can see why: "Jaws" is terrifying, funny, dramatic and just ridiculously entertaining, with career-defining performances from Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw and Richard Dreyfuss. Next time it's on television, try not watching. It's impossible.
