    A love letter to Spielberg.

    "Super 8" is a love project of J.J. Abrams you can feel the sense of adventure aspect in movie such as "E.T." and even films that Spielberg didn't direct such as "Goonies" it shows why J.J. Abrams is a talented director. It is impossible not to see the kids hang out making a movie and not feel nostalgia, even if you weren't a filmmaker, we all went out with our friends somewhere and had adventures,…

    I might have gone into this expecting too much. I liked the premise and start, but it just went downhill for me after that.

    Super 8 is the quintessential homage to the greatness of steven speilberg, aside from that it's officially my favorite J.J. Abrams movie (but hopefully not for long). Super 8 was marvelous and uncanny in it's exposure of alien narratives and it's perfectly charming, knowing when and where to tug your heart.

    Beautiful and simple. Watching it in the theatres felt really special and sweet. I still feel like this is sort of the E.T. of my generation.

    I swear, if I hear one more person complain that Hollywood can't produce a successful character-based blockbuster, I am going to take my copy of this movie and shove it in their face until they stop whining.

    On a more serious note, this is a lot better than I remember it being. Yeah, it cribs a bit too much from the Spielberg pantheon, but it still manages to be a damn good movie on its own mainly because of some…

    My problem with Super 8 is that I don't know what I want it to be.

    I started this film hoping for a cloverfield style JJAbrams monster movie, but once the monster/alien/creature THING arrived I was more into the late 70's coming of age band of children story that had been set out before me.
    Very reminiscent of the goonies.

    But with a big alien thing.

    This movie did an awesome job bringing back a lot of things that belonged to my childhood. It was funny and creepy and exciting and a lot of fun.
