    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.

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

    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.
