I saw Super 8 on Monday. It was pretty good. JJ Abrams made Lost and and Star Trek, both of which were amazing. Super 8 has a broad premise with explainable elements with a very human connection. Elle Fanning was spectacular, playing a young impressive actor in the boys’ movie when she is actually an actor. The focus wasn’t on the events and the inhumanity of it all, but rather the converging humanity. That was the point and it was well done.
Go see it.
