Ted said on Saturday, July 23, 2011 12:31:37 AMI am so surprised that critics even like this movie. The ending is predictable and eye-rolling ridiculous. The movie is just a one time watch on dvd. Richard, you like movies where kids swear like sailors. I don't.

Casey Bahrsaid on Saturday, June 25, 2011 11:55:27 PMIt's hard to imagine that J.J. Abrams could have made this movie without Steven Spielburg's body of work. But, the quality, vision, and competence Abrams brings as he brings his story to life on the screen is simply phenomenal. The tension doesn't let up for a second but he still keeps the story personal so it has meaning.
I'm surprised there wasn't more marketing for this film so more people will enjoy this exciting and entertaining work of art.

Cody Whitesaid on Wednesday, June 15, 2011 10:50:37 AMNow we've seen this movie before in the late seventies through the early eighties. Super 8 is a interesting experience the first time, but when you're out of the theater I was thinking of how I was not captured by the material. I'm not saying Super 8 is no where as bad as some movies of today that explode with action and doesn't take much, or don't take the time at all with the characters. J.J. Abrams does a great job with the jumps and the obvious scares that are about to appear on screen. But I think the best part aside from the monster that could be related to the monster of Cloverfield, the acting from the children is the most memorable. The child actors were fabulous, as these kids that want to make a movie but are caught in the blockade of the military and this mysterious monster roaming through the underground of the town, these kids are determined directors. I wish directors today would care so much to get the film in the can. I believe Super 8 was fun, scary, exhilarating, and most all captures those movies of the seventies that were brought to us by Steven Spielberg.
