    Just watched The Deep, from 1977. Not bad; diving in Bermuda, sunken treasure, drug dealers trying to kill you. I think that's the plot of pretty much every diving movie but they're still a good time.

    Any other good ones?

    Not Open Water. Man that was a stupid movie. Based on these two:

    Any Cousteau movie usually does it for me. Also, there is a great series on Hulu called Marine Machines that goes into all kinds of dive related topics. More of a documentary series than underwater fiction.

    Thunderball. Claudine Auger was very nice!

    The Cave.
    Into the Blue.
    Jaws?

    There aren't a whole lot of good choices.

    I saw parts of the second one, I would have to agree with you.

    Can't count how many times I've seen Thunderball, that one and For Your Eyes Only are probably the two biggest reasons I became a diver.

    The Big Blue was excellent. Not scuba, but free diving.

    Your failure to also mention Jacqueline Bisset in a wet t-shirt is most concerning... HH
