LOST junkie. I miss it so much, that co creator JJ Abrams could have filmed himself making breakfast in the morning, and I would have tuned in to watch. Seriously...like. every. day.
That said...Super 8 looked like a rocking good time, and I was all over it! If you took Cloverfield, mashed it up with E.T. and stuck 'em both between a slice of Stand by Me, and a slice of Gremlins...you'd have the perfect Super 8 sandwich. Which sounds pretty yummy to me:P
You basically have to be able to relate to your inner geeky 10 year old to really dive into this movie...which I am fully capable of doing;) I remember the days of running around on my bike, in a middle of nowhere Midwestern town, with absolutely no parental supervision, and my star wars figures in a backpack...plotting about making our own movies. I. Was. That. Kid...and no, I didn't date much;P
I will fully admit, I was expecting a way different movie...more horror/scare...but I was delighted with what I got...and if I say anything else, I'll give it all away...so just go see it if you get the chance. It's well worth the price of admission;)
