Haha! I couldn't resist the cheesy title. But I'm seriously in love with this movie. And I know I need to blog first about Midnight in Paris which I saw last week and my trip to Hollywood last weekend...but I can't help it. All I want to talk about right now is Super 8. I love movies that can get by with showing as little as they can through advertising. When I walked into the film all I really knew about it was that there was a Super 8 camera involved (which I want to run to the DI and pick one up ASAP and start making my own old school amateur films hehe), some kids and probably some sci-fi. Like Inception, the less you knew about what was actually going on and the fewer expectations you had (though I had pretty high for both..), the better you would enjoy the film.
Sandlot or something?" He was also distraught because he saw so many teenagers in our theater, which he sees as a bad omen. Interesting he mentioned Sandlot because this was a film that had similar childlike wonder. In fact, one of the best ways to describe this film is by comparing (and combining it with others.)
For the most part, I really liked the cast. However, you definitely could look and see that not all of the child actors were created equal...and maybe that was more a problem with the script...they weren't all as fleshed out and lovable as the kids in The Sandlot or Goonies. But the ones who mattered were...I guess it's a shame that not all of them were super memorable. However, the story is moving so fast that you don't really notice this too much. Also, it's important to note the importance of suspending belief...especially for a film like this. The more you do, the more you'll enjoy! Anyway, I think I would give this one 8.7 super 8 cameras out of 10 and I'd say see it in theaters! I wish I'd seen it sooner. I definitely think I'll go back and see it a few more times.
