Re: Super 8 - Blu-Ray Review

Welcome to HTS. We have a couple great reviewers that are pretty unbiased (Dale leans toward action movies: how terrible! )

Re: Super 8 - Blu-Ray Review

I bought this one up yesterday and watched it last night. I had every intention of just watching the first half and then picking it back up today to finish it; I couldn't stop. Engaging movie throughout!! Elle Fanning did a fantastic job! JJ Abrams has once again made a stellar movie! I can't wait to watch it again!

Re: Super 8 - Blu-Ray Review

Watched it last night (first time). Great movie! I had rented it, but I'm going to have to buy a copy at some point, for sure.

That train crash was INTENSE. Made me appreciate my subs all over again! Even my wife commented on how good it sounded!

Re: Super 8 - Blu-Ray Review

HI ALL. Yes this is a excellent movie that tells a story. It brought back the fun an enjoyment like watching the GOONIES. or the LOST BOYS. You what I mean. A little like PRIVATE RYAN, or CAPTAIN AMERICA. An HUGO looks to be another. An so is it worth to watch, yes. AND ENJOY...

YOU GOT TO OPEN YOUR EYES TO SEE THE PICTURE !

I still can't get over how well Elle Fanning did in this movie! I gotta watch this again this weekend...

Thoroughly enjoyed this one, reminded me of some films from my youth for some reason. Kenny & Company, Red Dawn, The Last Star Fighter, Stand By Me, Bad News Bears, The Lost Boys etc.
