Super 8 – SHORT REVIEW

Super 8 was a great movie. The message was powerful, and it actually made me say “wow” aloud in the theater. Good, nay, great shots, and some very powerful writing. The message is something that I can’t get off my mind, and the soundtrack and score are phenomenal. Anyone who liked Spielberg’s Alien classics will LOVE this new Abrams working. Second best movie of the year. The acting was astounding from all fields, and I felt a connection with all of the characters. Sorry to mention again, but the message in it was so subtle that when it finally hit you, you aren’t able to let go of it. It will bring back your own thoughts on it, and you will (to use this as a verb) nostalgia SO hard. J.J. Abrams, I, again, applaud you for delivering good humor, family values, fantastically-executed viewing of a time period, and, generally, a film that will make you want to see it again, very soon. Bottom Line: A.

  3. Just stopping by to show my support for you. I loved this movie too. I’ve seen it once and now my 8 and 9 year old daughters want me to take them to see it again! JJ’s got them with this one like Berg got us with ET and Goonies. Amazing.

  4. Yeah, man. I wasn’t alive to see Berg’s magic with drawing you in, but I know Abrams certainly got me. So god knows how the younger ones feel about it, it must be infecting their brains.
