Super 8 and Nostalgia
The movie reminded me of flicks like The Goonies, ET, The Explorers, Indiana Jones, Stand By Me - just to name a few - the movies where as a child you wish you and your friends can share the same adventure, where you can be the hero and where you can get the girl!
I remember my mom and sister taking me to see many of these movies and how I just fell in love with the pure magic of Hollywood! Yep - times have changed.......I really enjoyed Super 8 because it had that classic formula that Spielberg had in his 80's movies - a great story, a great bunch of friends, innonence, and a great adventure, and just pure entertainment that can bring a smile or a tear!
If you get a chance to see it - please do - it is fun, the story really keeps you on the edge and in one or two scenes I almost teared up - the acting was not overdone in this movie - the emotion and expressions by all of the actors were enough to have you feel the movie.
PS: And part of the reason why I loved this movie - was Kyle Chandler - ah - he was just so handsome to look at - ummmm hmmmmm!
Anyways peeps - TTYL!
