I Just Watched: Super 8

Three cheers for J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg for bringing us a wonderfully well made and well written summer movie that is easy to sit through. (Honestly, apart from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Pt. 2, I wasn't sure we had one in store this season.) Super 8 was all around brilliant with a great cast and excellent behind-the-scenes folk, especially when it came to the score and special effects. The plot was a mix between The Goonies and E.T. in an amazing way, creating a whole new terrestrial experience where children are the ones saving the world and discovering the government's deep, dark secrets. Trust me, you won't regret purchasing a ticket to see this flick. (Side note: The movie's title comes from the old-fashioned camera the characters are using to make their movie-within-a-movie.)
Best on-screen moment: When the four friends are running through their now "war zone"-esque hometown and shouting, "What is happening?!"
