    Default Super 8

    I don't know about you guys, but I think this looks great.



    [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpzUCA5i6zY"]YouTube - ‪'Super 8' Trailer‬‏[/nomedia]

    Early Buzz: JJ Abrams’ ‘Super 8′

    Slashfilm: Loved it, they don’t make these types of movies anymore. The best thing I can say about the film is that I loved the characters/setting/tone so much that I probably would have enjoyed it just as much as a Stand By Me-like coming of age drama without the sci-fi/train crash/action. Its one of those films that feels like it was made just for me. (someone asked if its more E.T. or Cloverfield, I responded: It’s Cloverfield with the characters and setting of E.T.

    FirstShowing: absolutely loved it, lived up to my high expectations. Felt like watching an Amblin classic. Of course, it’s expected I’d love it, considering how excited I was for it, but yes, it’s that good. Really need to see it again!

    Collider: It’s great. Made me feel like a kid again

    Jen Yamato: I enjoyed Super 8′s Goonies vibe; the kids are great. Has its problems, but none are deal breakers for me…though they will be for others.

    LA Times Hero Complex: Remember how the academy expanded the best picture race to include crowdpleasers and sublime spectacle films? Meet “Super 8″…

    Jenna Busch: #Super8 is AMAZING!!!! Nostalgic, action-packed and just damn entertaining! Woot!

    Meli_Molina: Yeppers, I certainly did like it quite a bunch.

    JimmyO: Super 8 is pure movie magic! Let’s just say it is truly spectacular!

    BloodyDisgusting: On a positive note, I can reveal I have seen Super 8 and LOVED it.

    STYD News: Cool monster mash w/terrific ensemble cast. Nostalgia might blind you to its problems. Still, I liked it. Full review to come!

    Steve Barton: Wow. Just wow. Days later I’m still happy it’s like Christmas for monster movie fans!

    BDK Reviews: Easily the best movie of 2011 so far!

    JRothC: It was everything I wanted it to be. A coming-of-age sci-fi adventure like the classics I love. Super 8′s great for older kids AND grown-ups who long for the classic sci-fi films of the late ’70s and ’80s. Longer review to come — but I loved it — think you will too!

    ThomasLeupp: ‘Super 8′ is terrific: very scary, surprisingly funny, only slightly marred by forced Spielbergian sentiment.

    TreyAlexMovies: Super 8 is an adventurous blast! A thriller with a heart and laughs. Abrams and Spielberg are a great team.

    Manny Movies: SUPER 8 is funny, spooky, haunting, uplifting…old school filmmaking at its finest…YOU WILL LOVE IT!

    Devincf: If JJ Abrams ever got a good script he would be an amazing director. SUPER 8 script is a huge mess. SUPER 8 simply has no idea what kind of movie it wants to be. Kids are great, looks nice, has no throughline…

    JakesTakes: Congratulations, JJ Abrams. You just made the best movie of 2011

    stevezaragoza: AMAZING, WONDERFUL, SUPERB, HEARTWARMING, EXCITING, SPECTACULAR! Now who wants to touch me?!

    RowenetReview: I loved it! Check it out when it comes out June 10! Best movie I’ve seen all year.

    I like what I have seen so far but I have one fear...that it is going to turn away from having any edge and become some love story to Spielberg. I want this flick to have some teeth. Not just be Goonies meet E.T.

    ...and is there anything wrong with that if it were? **** me I'll take that any day of the week as long as the Kardashians or Jersey Shore are still filling my TV with their bull****.

    I'm really just hoping for a blend of old school Spielberg and new school Abrams. I love the nostalgic vibe ofthe trailer, mixed in with some of the scenes of, what looks like, violence and ****ed up ****.

    Harry thinks SUPER 8 is pretty damn super!
    Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.

    anything further is SPOILERIFIC

    but this is a very encouraging quote

    Now – before I go much further – and delve into some of the things you might not want to know going into SUPER 8, let me just say flat out. I love SUPER 8. Love it. Love it. The film feels like the experience I wished I’d had as a kid. I loved Spielberg, but I was also seeing the R-rated films of the era – and while I loved GOONIES and I really like MONSTER SQUAD, those films were goofier than anything that related to me personally. This feels like a great big scary kids adventure that I have always been waiting on.



    JJ’s film isn’t a Spielberg clone, it is its own thing. The disparate influential elements that he’s combined should make instant sense to any kid of my era. Basically imagine if E.T. wasn’t so goddamned cute. What if it wasn’t all John Carpenter take over the world either. What if it was in that middle ground? What if scary **** was going down and as a kid, you had information that you felt you needed to act upon, and you and your friends went out – JAWS style to ****ing get the **** that needed to get done, done? That’s SUPER 8.
