Nice slow boring movie to put you to sleep. JarJar Abrams does it again, this time it's a modern day 'homage' (hehe, Hollywood spin term) to Spielberg's E.T. I suppose it could have been worse, but you'd have to stay awake long enough to find out. Good luck.

Gilgamesh (Vertiet Ryper)
One of the best movies I've seen! Sure, it has plenty of plot holes and some character development issues, but many things these days have worse. All in all, one of the most creative sci-fi original (not counting remakes, in other words) of the time period.
If classics are still being made the way they were made in the 80s (Back to the Future, The Goonies, E.T., etc...) this should sit right up there with them. Full of adventure, action, and kids with suspiciously intelligent dialogue, Super 8 highlights J.J. Abrams' love of the popcorn flick, the magic of the movies, and the coming of age story. It's basically a love letter to an early Steven Spielberg and his lasting impact on the language of film.
