Movie Review: Super 8

Saw Super 8 last week.  Was a fun movie.  Kind of E.T. meets Alien, with a twist of The Goonies.  Not too surprising, considering Steven Spielberg's involvement in the thing.

Anything I say about the story will be a spoiler, so I’ll avoid that.

The acting was good, or better than good.  The script was fun, scary, and held my attention throughout.  I never felt like I was watching a movie (far too common in too many clichéd Hollywood crapfests), felt like I was enjoying a story.  That’s a good thing.

So, 8 of 10 from me.  Won’t say more, don’t want to spoil any of the surprises.  There are more than a few.
