Super 8 ★★★★

Amidst the countless lens flares from J.J. Abrams, I still really like this movie. 

It feels very much like a nod to classics like 'E.T.' and 'The Goonies'. The kids in this movie show tremendous heart and trueness to their character. Some incredible casting there. Some of the best parts in this movie or just the kids being kids and interacting with each other.
