    Fantastic movie experience, had heard mixed reviews before watching but the plot, characters and design blew me away. Shame the ending was dragged out a little long.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    "He's too stoned!"
    "Drugs are so bad!"

    The ending is a bit misguided - suddenly the monster is misunderstood, and the letting go of the locket, under these circumstances just feels wrong.

    Having said that, this is a fun and emotional piece of Spielberg-Porn - with an energetic bunch of kids, daddy-issues, lens-flares, an alien and plenty of nostalgia. It also pays as much tribute to JJ's other influences - George Lucas and Michael Bay as it does Sir Stevie.…

    가정해 본다. <수퍼 8>은 J. J. 에이브럼스 감독의 자전적인 영화가 아닐까 하고. 1966년생인 에이브럼스는 영화의 시대배경인 1979년 우리나라 나이로 14살이었을 것이고, 이는 영화의 주인공 조 일행의 나이와 얼추 맞아떨어진다. 에이브럼스를 비롯한 또래들은 유년기에 TV에서 <프랑켄슈타인>(Frankenstein)과 <심해 괴물>(Creature from the Black Lagoon)을 보며 공포와 매혹이 거칠게 뒤섞인 감정을 느꼈을 것이고, 동네 재개봉 극장에서 팝콘을 집어먹으며 <살아 있는 시체의 밤>(Night of the Living Dead)을 보았을 것이다. 학교가 끝나면 옹기종기 모여 만화책을 읽고, 손가락에 접착제와 에나멜을 잔뜩 묻혀가며…

    Every generation gets the ET it deserves, so maybe in the next one there will both be an (amazing) actress and she will get to do something other get rescued.
    That's probably too harsh, but you can't have your soulful humanity and have your monster eat it, too.

    Fuck this movie and fuck Abrams for making it. If I wanted to see Goonies or Close encounters of a third kind I would pop in a vhs tape and relive my childhood. Fuck this movie, fuck Abrams and fuck Spielberg for this shitty remake of his films.

    Instead of this, I'd like to see a full-length version of the zombie movie the kids were making.

    I love this movie so much. This was the first time I've seen it since I saw it in theaters and it was as good, if not even better. This is a perfect homage to Spielberg and his masterful filmmaking. Abrams did a great job at capturing Spielberg's trademarks but also added his own touch to it. Excellent.

    A fitting tribute to Amblin films, even if it's not as good as the best of them.

    With an outstanding tribute to all things Spielberg, Abrams cements his place as a considerable talent to be watched.

    Ik vond deze film zo goed omdat:
    1.De tijd waarin deze film zich afspeelt is zo zalig!
    2.Ik vind het knap hoe deze jonge acteurs de film zo mooi maken door hun geweldig acteertalent!
    3.Ik kan mij ook helemaal inleven in het verhaal.
    4.Het is zo een leuk einde om te zien hoe Joe de wereld eigenlijk redde.
    5. De sfeer die er gedurende heel de film in zit is zo geweldig. Het "Yolo, wij zijn 14 en wij maken een film" gevoel blijft heel de film en dat geeft mij persoonlijk zo'n heerlijk vrij gevoel...
