Super 8 was number one at the box office this weekend, bringing in a little over $36 million dollars; however, it was disappointing. I cannot say that the movie was bad because it had some great moments. The kids had great chemistry together and, I have to say that their acting skills were on point. Together they were an entertaining crew. I think the thing that was a little underwhelming was the plot and the monster. As much as I love science fiction flicks, I am getting a little bored with the Alien's that we mistreat and won't let go home. Can we come up with something a little more creative.
Actually, I would love to see The Event (recently cancelled television series with a great cast a crew) be made into a movie. Now that is an intriguing Alien-Human interaction. At any rate, Super 8 was enteratining enough to see on video, instead of the movies.
I give it a C.
