Pointless Nonsense

Posted in movies by Bill on June 12, 2011

Super 8 seemed like a retelling of E.T. from the trailers, and that wasn’t quite right, but the Spielberg influence is pronounced (as is the J.J. Abrams influence, which is to say: lens flares!). It’s part E.T., part Goonies, and a couple other movies that listing them would count as spoilers. Parts of the last 30 minutes or so were a little disappointing, but pretty much everything involving the kids was great. I think if this movie came out when I was 10 it would’ve been one of my all-time favorites (because it evoked The Goonies more than anything for me), but even as an adult I enjoyed the hell out of it.
