Super 8 Fan Reaction

Film Forum: Did You Think Super 8 Was Super Great?

We weren't shy about making it clear that while we liked J.J. Abrams's Super 8, the much-anticipated monster movie didn't totally meet our expectations. That said, the movie still earned enough critical acclaim to bring in big numbers at the box office, and we're curious to hear what you thought. Did the big viral marketing campaign overhype the movie, or does it deserve to join the ranks of classics like The Goonies and Stand by Me?

If you didn't catch Super 8, we still want to hear about any movie you saw this weekend. Were you able to check out Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris now that it's in wide release? Or see Kung Fu Panda 2? Leave your mini reviews in the comments!

I watched Midnight in Paris this week and I really enjoyed it. I was surprised by the little twist in there, it caught me off guard but I really enjoyed it. My boyfriend and I laughed through most of it and I thought Owen Wilson did a great job. Overall, I would recommend it.

Super 8 was okay. Would I've paid to see it? No, but I did. I would've preferred seeing it on cable or via Netflix.

I saw midnight in Paris and I loved it. Classic Woody Allen. Highly recommend it if u like woody's style of movies.

I agree, the relationship between the kids made this movie. Overall, I was disappointed. I guess I expected it to be more along the lines of E.T. (one of my Top 5 movies of all time) and less Aliens. I think I really just wanted the monster to be a pudgy alien in a sheet and not so monstery.

I really liked it. The camaraderie between the kids in the movie reminded me of The Goonies, E.T., etc..

Super 8 was okay. I'd give it a B- because alien movies don't really do it for me, but the acting by the kids was great and made the movie enjoyable.

Found out my girlfriend had never seen Midnight Express - so we watched a great movie. Great drama, a screenplay hardly rivaled, and it was free. Plus, we didn't have to deal with other peoples' chatter!
