Movie Review: Super 8

So I was deeply underwhelmed. It went on way too long, most of the acting was meh, and honestly I was getting irritated with it up until I decided to view it like this:

All the wannabe filmmaker kids? Are stand-ins for this generation's filmmakers. To wit:

Bossy kid who keeps rewriting = George Lucas

Spazzy kid who keeps crying and/or vomiting = Steven Spielberg

Shrieky kid who likes to blow shit up = Michael Bay

The quiet emphatic character who gets it all = J.J. Abrams (BTW That's Abrams on Abrams, not me on Abrams, cos I laugh.)

My fav bit was the gas station called The Kelvin. I guess he couldn't figure out a way to get a Slush-o Mix in, or did I just miss it? Also, Greg Grunberg apparently was in it, but I missed him.

The best part is the kids' movie during the end credits sequence. Seriously.

That's a bummer; I was so looking forward to the movie and thought it had great potential to recreate good movie glory from yonderyears. I'll have to go and see myself, but it won't be out for a few more weeks over here. *Waits impatiently....*
