A good movie

To be honest, I wasn't really sure what to expect but since the critics were quite positive, I thought it should give it a try. Well, eventualy, I thought it was pretty good. Basically, it was some kind of mix of 'E.T.' and 'Cloverfield'. First of all, I really loved the way they perfectly recreated the 70's (the set-dressing, the clothes, the haircut,....) and it was like watching an old movie bu... read more

Fairly good movie overall. I kept waiting for that something special within the film to make it all worth it, and it never quite achieved it. A movie definitely worth seeing once, but otherwise that's the only time you'll need to see it. To me, twas a disappointment. I hope it is different for some of you!

JJ Abrams does it again!

Very good film, final act not so much

“Super 8 was one of the movies I was looking forward to all year and while it was slight disappointing I enjoyed it immensely. Super 8 looks absolutely great, with superb effects and cinematography. The score also fits well with the movie without feeling too generic, it is tautly directed by Abrams and the script and characters are engaging with the feel of a Spielberg film which made Super 8 somewhat nostalgic in a sense. The story, making the most of an intriguing concept, does have heart and poignancy and also quite intense, while the acting particularly from Elle Fanning is very impressive. Also, the train crash set piece is simply spectacular. If there is a let down though, it is the final act, which feels like a different movie altogether. The looser it gets, the less tense and more h” read more
