Critic Review - Badass Digest

While it has good performances and looks pretty, SUPER 8 is a movie that, in the end, does not fully work on any level except for cheap nostalgia porn.

If you're going to shoot down a script by JJ Abrams, it would be wise to both proof read and spell check your own writing and grammar before publishing it for all the rotton-tomatoe goers to see

11 reviews and 1 of them Rotten. Nothing to worry about, yet, anyway.....

Especially when the one site to give it a bad review is "Badass Digest".

Well if you read any of the positive reviews, they're not even saying it's that great. Most of them were expecting for it to be better.

This movie is looking kinda iffy for me at the moment

Really? A couple of them are, 'it's okay' but most of them are glowing.

Strategic placement of the word "porn" does not make you a badass.

It's about time, that'll make our google searches so much shorter and simpler.

If you are going to make it rotten, at least give is a legit reason. Way to ruin it. You got the comments you were looking for I guess.
