    A loving homage to early 80s Spielberg films and to the act of movie-making itself, "Super 8" is a solid picture with some real heart underneath. It's not a brilliant film, but it's certainly far better than most of the summer blockbuster fare up for your consideration. 9 years 3 months ago

    Otherwise known as "The Goonies meet E.T."
    Only E.T's escaped from Cloverfield and brought all the lens flares from Star Trek with him.

    Seriously, someone needs to take the damn lens flare filter off Abrams before he makes a film that's 100% lens flare, rather than just the 60-70% he's limiting himself to at the moment.

    The kids were good though and the whole thing will no doubt repeatedly remind you of ET and Goonies. The problem with this is that those two are much loved classics and this doesn't quite stand up next to them, so it's unfortunate you keep getting reminded of them all the way through.

    Still, for a good (if a little predictable) film that's a bit too much in love with Spielberg's style, it could have turned out a lot worse (i.e like Indy/Crystal Skull) and, despite all these niggles I'm raising, I enjoyed it.
