My most anticipated film of this summer was Super 8. Early on, there was a lot of reference to surprises and mystery, so I decided to avoid all reviews and press. For me, it was a smart move. I even felt bad when I shushed a guy at a party, who wanted to tell me about the film before I saw it. When I saw the film, I got story, I got action, I got jumps, I got satisfaction. I loved the scene nods to Jaws, Close Encounters, ET, Goonies, Cloverfield and more. The story of a town dealing with an invasion-I-will-not-speak-of was a great film for me. Go. Be surprised. Well done!
