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

    Mais uma grata surpresa. Fiquei muito contente com esse “Super 8”, uma atmosfera que remete muito bem aos anos 80, deixa o filme com um gosto tão agradável.

    Em geral, acho que a primeira parte funciona muito bem. Narrativa envolvente e bastante interessante. J. J. Abrams acerta ao manter a criatura misteriosa sempre na sombra, na sorrateira. Consegue criar uma expectativa e ansiedade bem legais. Além disso, as cenas desses amigos são sempre muito boas de acompanhar – por exemplo,…

    It's not family-friendly enough to be a modern E.T., but this still warmed the cockles and pulled at the heartstrings.

    On paper looking back this film should be pretty terrible. A cast led by unknown child actors in a plot that gets more and more bizarre by the minute. Must despite a tame ending I still came away with satisfaction. J J Abrams knows how to direct a film and make it gripping from start to finish. The characters have a distinct identity feeling like you really know them in under 2 hours. By no means a sci fi classic, but still enjoyable and a good omen to what the future blockbuster Star Wars film will be like

    Like watching a train crash. And then an alien.

    Before the release of whats likely to be the biggest movie of his career I thought it was time to check out the last few movies from Abrams' repertoire that I hadn't already seen.

    Spielberg 8, I mean Super 8 is a sci fi fantasy that explores the story of a group of kids who witness something extraordinary whilst filming their own little movie project, but soon a town of 10,000 people also start witnessing bizarre things happening around them.…

    Every now and then I cull my movie collection; anything I haven't seen in a while gets a 20 minute trial to see if it's still a keeper. Super 8 uses it's first 20 minutes as well as any movie on my shelves. I ended up watching the whole thing.

    Verdict: Still a keeper, no doubt about it.

    qué cosa tan padre. tan fluida. tan cautivante. es la razón por la que ET nunca me gustó. ET era irremediablemente ñoña y cute. en super 8, al menos durante la primera hora y media no tienes ni puta idea de qué está pasando ni de a dónde va a ir. sí, el final es re-ñoño, igual, pero todo lo que pasó antes sí te tiene al borde del asiento.

    si bien, todas las películas de jj abrams se ven…

    E.T. and the goonies are two of my favourite films and this is like a perfect tribute to those films.

    I thought I really liked this, and yet haven't made a real effort to see it again, so...I don't know.

    Filme para iniciar (muito bem) minha quest de assistir toda a filmografia do diretor e escritor do próximo Star Wars.

    Veja a cena dos créditos - é quase tão boa quanto todo o filme e serve bem para quem já tentou filmar qualquer história :)

    JJ Abrams' throwback to the Amblin era mostly works, with solid performances and a sound emotional core, even if one of the film's plots is better than the other.
