Super 8 Reviews
A number of scenes where you see conventional Hollywood wisdom bleed through. Not sure that I've ever hated a character more than the fat kid.
Would like to revisit it.
In 1979 Ohio, several youngsters (Elle Fanning, Joel Courtney, Gabriel Basso) are making a zombie movie with a Super-8 camera. In the midst of filming, the friends witness a horrifying train derailment and are lucky to escape with their lives. They soon discover that the catastrophe was no accident, as a series of unexplained events and disappearances soon follows. Deputy Jackson Lamb (Kyle Chandler), the father of one of the kids, searches for the terrifying truth behind the crash.
As much an homage to Steven Spielberg's "E.T." as it is to the late 1970's, this remarkable extra-terrestrial film from JJ Abrams is equal parts emotional, action-packed, and nostalgic. I loved it!
