Sharks have played a key role in the ocean, and have lived with little problems. Until a hit movie that scared and terrorized people out of their seats called jaws was in theaters. Sharks have been around longer than humans have, and they are on top of their food chain. They have few predators, but there worst predator is man himself. Do these so called killing machines who are looking for revenge trying to eat anyone who steps foot in their home.
As they usually hunt old, weak or sick prey, they help to keep the prey population in good condition, healthy and strong, enabling these more naturally fit animals to reproduce and pass on their genes. The effects of removing sharks from ocean ecosystems, although complex and rather unpredictable, are very likely to be ecologically and economically damaging. Here are some reason why killing sharks is very bad: 1)Sharks are being fished at a rate faster than they can recover. Due to overexploitation and lack of proper management, many shark species are under considerable risk of unrecoverable decline with some species having declined to near extinction in recent years. According to reports, sharks are being killed at an alarming rate of up to 273 million worldwide per year.
Together with the music and the editing creating tension. it keeps rising and every time the shark attacks his own music that brings the film from a 5 to a 10. Without sound editing this movie would not have the Hitchcock horror feel without Verna Fields doing a great job blending everything together. The editor made sure through her editing style would make the shark look as authentic as possible. The best scenes in the movie take place on the boat.
But it made to think more about the fate of these animals. Stewart demonstrated sharks are not mindless killing machines; they act like most big predators, who met with humans in their native environment. And these creatures suffer from humans’ actions more than people suffer from their attacks. Sharks were presented as timid, smart creatures that did not have deliberate plans to attack people. Annual tolls because of sharks are much less than deaths resulted in meetings with crocodiles, tigers or elephants.
The calmness of Tom gives us contrast to the brutal attack on Chrissie, which intensifies the shark attack when the camera cuts back to Chrissie. The music also plays a key role in this scene. The intensity of the music is cut to silence when the camera jumps from Chrissie to Tom, magnifying the effects of the music. There are several scenes where the shark is felt but not seen. Spielberg used other means to compensate for the shark 's absence.
This is only half true, the other half being calm and elegant creatures. They represent how violent the natural world can be, and the pervasive and remorseless reality of a terrifying and agonizingly painful death (Florman int). Like the unsympathetic ocean, the sharks have no benevolence for the men: only hunger. The sharks, and the mortality they represent, are a major contribution to why Mac’s fortitude, his ability so survive, was so undermined. Louie’s imagined treaty with the sharks emphasizes their meaning as a specifically natural violence.
They use harpoon gun that connects the harpoon to the shark and the barrel. By them doing this every time before the shark attacks the barrels come up. Together with, the music and the editing create great tension it keeps rising and every time the shark attacks he has his own music that brings the film from a 5 to a 10. Without sound editing this movie would not have the Hitchcock horror feel like it does Verna Fields did a great job blending everything together. Verna Fields made sure through her editing style she used would make the shark look as authentic as possible.
Virtually all sharks in the world are feared and hated because of the media’s fiendish portrayals. The media chooses to show only the bad side of sharks, so the general population forms biases about these spectacular marine animals. A study on the reputation of sharks, “Sharks Reputation as Man eaters is Unfair” claims that “S[s]ensational television programming such as Discovery Channel’s ‘Shark Week’ imprints certain images in the public’s mind of sharks as deliberate hunters.” Robert Hueter, the director of the Center for Shark Research at the Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota, Florida, then goes on to say how Jaws turned sharks from “trash fish” into cold blooded killers. Dr. Hueter then talks about about a simple solution. “Stop describing animals that rarely kill humans as ‘man-eaters’.” The study ‘claims that if people stop using “knee-jerk” terms then it will help reverse sharks’ negative image.
Sometimes, the sharks will hunt in groups. Bull sharks are territorial and is likely the cause for human attacks. When encountering a bull shark, you will most likely see a remora attached. Bull sharks are near threatened. Did you know that the possibly oldest shark may never be completely known?
Orcas with different backgrounds and dialects are placed together without much thought about how this could affect them. A killer whale named Tilikum was placed in Sealand and he was expected to perform tricks that he had never done, and if he performed them incorrectly all of the whales were withheld food. “This annoyed the others, so they would rake him with their teeth, causing him to bleed” (Lewis). In the wild, when a dominant orca begins showing aggression the other orca has thousands of miles to swim away and flee the scene. However, these animals are in pools where they do not have that option.
