    My opinion:
    The movie was "cute" at best.. I left a little disappointed...

    I cant exactly put my finger on why i didnt like it... Perhaps i expected way more from the film and hype. I found it hard to sit still for the entire 2 hour movie... Even pulled out the phone and googled the run time during the movie cuz i was so over watching it ...

    I generally enjoy Sci-fi alien movies, but this one not to much...

    PS. applause before, during, and after a movie really pisses me off. Just STFU and watch the movie... I bet all those clapping tool bags were duck fans...
    The person who pulled out a cell phone to check the run time in the middle of a film wants OTHER people to "STFU" ??

    Hypocrite much?

    Watched it yesterday and I mostly enjoyed it. I agree that the ending was disappointing, but I was expecting that and it still didn't lessen my enjoyment up until that point.

    I thought the 'love letter to old Spielberg films' aspect of it was handled really well, especially with the cinematography and I continue to be impressed at how versatile a composer Michael Giacchino is.

    I don't think I'll buy the Blu-Ray when it comes out, but I might pick it up when it's used. I wouldn't mind watching it again.

    Distracting at first. Learned to just accept that they were doing it for style and didn't care anymore.

    Thought the movie was entertaining. The performances were good. Kept me busy for two hours. Didn't want my money back afterwards.

    I dunno. I didn't really like or dislike them, they just kind of puzzled me. Maybe overused a bit, but it didn't bother me.

    ‘Super 8′ Easter Eggs

    For example: Did you know that Leonard Nimoy appars in the movie? How about that another one of JJ’s Star Trek stars plays “the monster”? Did you spot the references to Lost, Alias and The Twilight Zone? After the jump I’ve compiled 16 hidden easter eggs which can be found in the movie.

    Eggs-Zactly!!!!

    That's what frustrated me the most about that movie... the lost opportunity.

    Classic bait & switch. Sell it as if it is a monster movie, but its actually about a boy who lost his mother & a dad that has no idea at being a father.

    I was more interested in the zombie movie the kids were making than the lame coverfield monster.

    Bottom line....THIS MOVIE BLOWS!

    DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PIECE OF CRAP!

    That's a little rough. The movie doesn't blow...I get that reaction though, because you are right about the bait & switch. Abrams wanted to make a classic Spielberg flick(which he kinda did) but he also wanted to make it 'edgy' with a MONSTER...oooh scary. Yet he straddled the line too much and never really distinguished this as anything more than a half baked movie.
