    REVIEW: J.J. Abrams' Spielberg Homage Super 8 Is Less Than Super | Movieline

    J. J. Abrams’ Super 8 is such an authentic homage to the glory and excess of Steven Spielberg that it barely has its own identity. It’s been body-snatched by its own influences.

    See, that's what I was afraid of. I get it...JJ loves him some Spielberg, but c'mon...we have all seen those movies. At some point it's just fanboy worship. Now, if Abrams wants to devote that same slavish attention to a Raiders movie...well, that I can sign off on.

    I agree, but most of the reviews I've seen say that it does a really good job of being nostalgic, but not a copy. I guess we'll find out soon.

    All I can tell you is that the trailer gives me goosebumps. I have very high expectations.

    Ralph on KROQ said he saw it and it was like a new Stand By Me coming of age story, but with some action. Maybe a kind of updated E.T.

    Super 8 :: rogerebert.com :: Reviews
    With its night skies filled with mystery, its kids racing around town on bicycles and its flashlights forming visible beams in the air, "Super 8" has the visual signatures of an early Spielberg movie. Its earnest young heroes stumble upon an awesome mystery and try to investigate it themselves. And as an Ohio town experiences frightening events, we feel poised between "The Goonies" and a 1950s sci-fi film with the characters lined up side by side and looking in alarm at an awesome sight.

    Super 8 Review | Pajiba: Reviews, News, Quotes & Cultural Commentary

    Super 8 is not a very good movie, but most people won’t care. Most people won’t even notice. They’ll be so drunk on nostalgia, on Spielberg’s name, on the Amblin logo flashing across the screen, on the fat kid that looks like he’s straight out of Goonies that they’ll hardly even notice that Super 8 is kind of a ****ty movie. It’s like getting drunk and going to a Scores strip club in Branson, Missouri: Sure, one lady is missing a leg, another a few teeth, and there’s some rust on the pole, but hey! It says Scores on the marquee, I must be having a great time. Oh, and look: There’s a tattoo of E.T. on that woman’s inner thigh, right below her tampon string. How Spielbergian!
    Ouch.
