A great movie from J.J. Abrams that many people including me think it somehow connects to Cloverfield, The story takes a while to get going but when it does it's full of some great scenes and effects, It does take allot of plot points from other classic sci fi films but it still manages to feel fresh, I don't really like it when the main cast are children as it feels too unrealistic when they escape danger all the time when countless adults die instantly but apart from that it has some great effects and a few little twists that keep it entertaining, It deserves more credit but it will be one of those great films that will be forgotten in time unfortunately.

Stranger Things : The Movie
½ September 8, 2017
Almost like watching 1985's "The Goonies" or 1982's "E.T." except with a darker tale involving an extra terrestrial that can be quite evil and yet understanding if understood.

Man, Stranger Things got really dark. Wait a minute, he survived the train wreck! Well that's just not possible.

It's like E.T., but with the alien kicking ass and the people being scared. The movie had great effects and a good story.

Stay during the credits for a bonus!

Kinda dull, long winded and takes far too long to get to the point.

Really great sci-fi movie that's new but still has that nostalgic feel, similar to ET. Really like this one.

A cliched ending brings the score down a bit on this otherwise gripping tale. The pre-teen romance doesn't help either though.

Super 8 draws on nostalgia and pulls you back into your memories from other great summer blockbuster films. Very much felt like a Spielberg film. You get some good visuals, mystery, thrills, and emotion in this movie. Super 8 is not great but definitely good enough to watch.

Puntaje Original: 6.0

Super 8 cuenta con dos nombres en su portada más emocionante que la película en sí. Con un despliegue visual fascinante, no es suficiente para levantar una trama cliché de este género.

I thought it was pretty stupid and lacking in excitement. The amateur teen actors certainly didn't help either. Considering the blockbuster this was supposed to be, I was not impressed. Don't waste your time. (First and only viewing - 11/3/2014)

There's something different in this Spielberg/Abrams collaboration. You feel captivated, but at the same time, you feel very thrilled.

Super8, is a Horror/Thriller that is another one of my favorite films and has some amazing performances from many of the actors displayed in this film!

The young talent is extraordinary. Another film to add to the list of greats, about a band of kids and the effects on their bonds over an adventure. A list that includes "E.T.", "The Goonies", "Explorers", "Stand By Me", "The Sandlot", "The Breakfast Club". All of which focus deeply on relationships of youth, such a timeless theme should have a genre of it's own. "Stranger Things" also would fall into such a Genre.

I loved this movie, kinda of a throwback to the to the good old days of monster movies. Joel Courtney was a standout!

This is a fantastic movie. Reminds me of an actual movie from the 80s. See this one!

Grade - B-
'Super 8' is an good sci-fi movie from JJ Abrams. It's packed with JJ's cool and flashy style, and has some excellent child actors to carry the movies slightly thin and cliched script.
