3SMReviews: Super 8

 In All (-ish), Three Sentence Movie Reviews

I felt that what this movie did well it did very well, namely accurately capturing 14-year-old-boy interactions, which were very funny. I felt that we went too long without seeing the monster, and that worried and distracted me, detracting from the overall film. Though it was lightly enjoyable, (think sorbet instead of Ben & Jerry’s Phish Food) I thought the most interesting part of the movie would have come after the movie itself ended, when the people returned to their now devastated town.

    I think Shawn saw this without me. I thought about it and knew I would enjoy the kid/teen parts, but wasn't so sure about the scary stuff. Sounds like I could give it a try.
