I seriously can't imagine someone my age not liking this movie. Or kids. I just don't get it. But I also don't get how someone could enjoy Transformers... or fucking Battle LA...

Going in I knew nothing of the movie, didn't watch a trailer, etc.

Sadly, I felt very dissapointed by the movie at the end. I would actually rate it a 4/10.

Or GI Joe.

Watched Super 8 today, thought it was ok, not theater worthy. As others have said, reminded me of E.T.

7/10

It's all about expectations, some people just don't have any, others too many.

Transformers is a mindless plot that only cares about the special effects with a C grade story line. Like Skinnypupp said this is the type of movie we grew up watching and loving and watching a movie like this helps relive out childhood.

That's the issue of movies these days, it's all about the special effects and the actors that are in it. Growing up it was always about the character progression and the underlying story line which we had in Super8.

Then again I guess the ages we live in if there's not a shooting, car chase or explosion every 10mins the movie sucks.

Ironic, since Transformers SHOULD be about nostalgia. Instead it is nothing but explosions and shiny actors and actresses. How you can be actually entertained (not just impressed by graphics, but entertained) by that, I have no idea.

Like I always say, to each their own. I don't expect everyone to love the same movies I love. Sometimes, I can see why someone would like a movie I don't, and not like a movie I do like. But sometimes, I just don't get it.

I wonder how a movie like Cloak & Dagger would do nowadays or Flight of the Navigator


at least Super 8 was rather profitable so hopefully we'll see more like it in the future

I have Flight of the Navigator on DVD and it's still one of my favorite movies growing up.

When I was around 12, I had the most mind blowingly vivid dream where I was flying a spaceship like in Flight of the Navigator. I was shaken when I woke up. I wanted to go back so bad.. it was a feeling I never had before or since. But I can still remember the dream so vividly to this day

I have actually had recent flying dreams like that. You wake up and try to go back to sleep to hopefully have the same dream again.

10/10 for me. I enjoyed every second of it.

I think a lot of people were misled by the trailer and went into this movie expecting something that's about aliens, big action scenes with cool weapons, and "connection with extraterrestrial" encounters.

No, this movie is NOT about that. It's about letting go of your troubled past, accepting that life throws you curve balls sometimes and the only way to deal with it is to eventually move on. It just happened to be packaged up in a sci-fi backdrop because that's all that alien stuff is - background story.

Great acting by the kids, good story telling, and if you can go into this movie without expecting some summer big action movie then you won't be disappointed. For those that ARE looking for all the cool alien stuff, go watch DISTRICT 9 instead. Now that's a kick ass sci-fi movie about aliens and their kick ass technological prowess.
