Matt's Review of Super 8
Cinema's most acclaimed filmmaker (Spielberg) and one of the greatest modern visual storytellers (JJ Abrams) team up for the first time, and the results are anything but disappointing. Together, they create a masterpiece full of suspense, action, humor, and a lot of heart. It boasts the intensity and thrills of movies like Godzilla and War of the Worlds, while it retains the emotional heart of films such as E.T. or Back to the Future. "Super 8" gripped me from the very beginning, had me laughing throughout, and had me cheering by the end. This film is everything I go to the movies for. "Super 8" will be a tough one to top.
