Super 8 Review at Skewed and Reviewed

Skewed and Reviewed look at the new JJ Abrams film "Super 8". They cited the great young cast and humor but noted a lack of action and suspense in the film and that it was clearly influenced by many of Steven Spielbergs earlier films and lacked much originality as it borrowed for better films.

The story is too old to be commented.

I'll be seeing this tomorrow so I'm really looking forward to it. It looks really good and exciting. All the right type of things that I like in a movie are here....suspence, drama, secrets, cover ups, action and these kids. I'll be sure to let you know what I think after I see it.

Its not bad, just slow and lacking tons of action. Plus it borrows heavily from many of Spielbergs films.

Action doesn't make films though. Good writing and story does. I think people expect every movie to revolve around explosions these days, especially movies like this and I find it annoying.

Its like shooters in video games. Dont put a gun in the game and suddenly millions of people have no interest.

I loved it to be honest. If your in for an entertaining movie, go for it! I highly recommend it.

This movie is like a modern version of ET. Ok, maybe its not like it, but it has the same charm.

I would say most of the film is heavily borrowed from Spielbergs earlier works. That does not make it a bad film it was fun and entertaining just not very original.

I guess, but I think its kind of hard to come up with originality when it comes to alien movies. And even when there is some innovative idea, it is usually rejected. HollyWood is holding people back from creating such immersive and original movies.
