Super 8 (movie)

Caught one of the first showings in town. Not doing a review but just wondering, since the film is set in the 70s, is that….



---SPOILER alert---



alien-monster (highlight the text in this paragraph to read it) from Cloverfield this same alien all grown up come back to earth to exact revenge on humans? After all, the super 8 alien arrived as a non-hostile alien, then captured, tortured and experimented on. Maybe it’s still a baby in Super 8 (the two creatures look similar), then decades later, it comes back as an adult giant for revenge. haha :P

Seriously though, quite enjoyed the movie. I’m glad I caught the matinee, not many other patrons in the theatre so no annoying chatter or cell phones ringing. Loved the train crash effects but it got a bit loud. I hate it when the speaking parts are really soft you sometimes have to strain to make out what the characters are saying then when there are explosions, it gets deafeningly loud!

Fine with the ending. Read some found it disappointing. But I liked it. Sometimes, a simple happy ending is all a film needs before the credits roll. No spinning tops, no abrupt cliff hanger endings, just a simple fade to black as we leave the characters happy and smiling.

Some good leave-your-brain-at-the-door kind of movies coming this summer. Next one I want to watch is the new Transformers. Green Lantern too.
