'Super 8'

4 of 5 Stars

Harken back to yesteryear. What a great great job by Speilberg/Abrams for capturing the innocence and explorative nature of youth. This is a Goonies/ET mash of kids hanging out, ribbing each other and accidentally falling into a adventure of a lifetime. The timeframe is 1979 and we basically have a bunch of misfits who film a homemade flick that turns out to include in it s frames a government coverup/experiment. This movie has it all .Monsters, chases, bad guys, puppy love etc. All the stuff Speilberg is famous for. Even though Abrams directed, you smell Speilbergs Exec Producer stamp all over it.

This is for all ages and a GREAT family flick to take kids too. Enjoy.

Saw this one with the kids. Wasn't sure if we should bring our youngest son, who is 8. Glad we did, he loved it and there wasn't much that we felt was inappropriate. The kids actually liked it a lot...
