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.
‘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.
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!
