TheGameEffect | Super 8 Review

FINALLY got to see it today! One of the best movies I've seen in a LONG time. Really brings back some of the classic movie elements. Doesn't rely on action packed sequences, and it will make you feel like you are in a different world. I can see a majority of your usual audience not liking it though.

It wasn't perfect. I didn't like the fat kid, he got annoying to me real fast. The beginning is a bit long, but the jokes save the day. The ending is a bit abrupt, but awesome.

The thing I absolutely loved about this movie is every single character had development and personality. Everybody. All the side characters, anyone that had a line in the movie developed and had character. It was awesome.
