X men was much better.

I would say it wasn’t the best film JJ Abrams has ever made but his good movies blow most other movies out of the water.
I just rewatched Star Trek and I had forgotten how perfect it is within the summer movie genre.

X-Men was AMAZING!!! Wow, loved that movie so much, seen it twice. I believe it’s the best movie from the whole X-Men series. You gotta see it. It’s awesome!!!!

Coach Taylor! So hot and dorky. So great to see him in a big movie coz he’s AWESOME!

i dont see any movie coz iam so busy with school

It was pretty good. Sort of like the Goonies meet E.T.

It wasn’t as good as the hype, I agree X-men was better. But it wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t great…

@ Gin0 I agree
If you’re over 17 you probably won’t enjoy it that much, but it was funny!

COACH TAYLOR defeated X-MEN!!

COACHH TAYLORRR!!!
clear eyes full heart can’t lose…even against x-men :)

LOVED Super 8, it’s just the perfect summer movie-likable characters, great storyline/message, great cast and the kids-wow they made this movie. I also loved that it didn’t take itself seriously, and that it’s not necessarily a monster movie, it’s about the kids. Did I mention I loved the kids…:)

Saw super 8 and loved it!! Steven Spielberg is my favorite filmmaker!! I was shocked by how real and specific the emotions were. It has the fun and excitement of a great summer blockbuster combined with the naturalistic performances and dialogue of a great autumn release. Amazing film! Oh and the train crash is spectacular.

i loved the movie. i wanted to cry so many times :)
