  • Excerpt: With each year there comes the anticipation that each and every movie released will be the “next big thing.” Such is the case with the J.J. Abrams movie “Super 8″ which, with Steven Spielberg on board, it’s clear to say there was some pressure for Mr. Abrams. For those that don’t know, Abrams was the creative force behind television’s “Lost” and “Alias.

Super 8 (Blu-ray/DVD Combo)

  • Summary: A delightfully old-school monster movie (and oh, how it ages me to call a movie that brings back 1979 “old school”). This one’s a great purchase, as it will reward multiple viewings.

Super 8 Review

  • Excerpt: Super 8 is J.J. Abrams at his best, taking a concept well worn and familiar, wrapping it up in a beautifully photographed dressing, and making it his own. He did it with Cloverfield , he did it against all odds with Star Trek , and he has done it again, although this time with heart, a great set of kids, and Steven Spielberg.

Super 8 (Blu-ray Review)

  • Conclusion: I think J.J. Abrams has proved (not that he hadn’t already) that he can hang with the big boys. Super 8 is an obvious tribute-passion project of his and is well made. I wish the story had been a bit tighter especially during that last act, but that’s how it goes. Oh, and if you want a special treat, stick around during the credits, so you can see something cool. On that alone, Super 8 is a rental. Me, I’m split on the film, but will say that it’s just okay.

Super 8 Blu-ray Review

16 November 2011
  • Excerpt: The Movie Lots of young wannabe filmmakers swiped their dads' cameras and made their own short, grainy masterpieces back in the day, perhaps inspired by the works of upstarts such as George Lucas and Steven Spielberg. Few took that inspiration as far as J.J. Abrams, among the most successful filmmakers in recent years. For Super 8 , he drew extensively upon his own experiences, then took them to science-fictional extremes.
