Super8 is a hit!
Got back from watching JJ Abrams' latest film 'Super8'--making reference to the old Super8, 8mm film cameras. The trailers for the movie don't give up that much information but having enjoyed his most recent sci-fi thrillers, I had been looking forward to this movie for a while--and it doesn't disappoint.
The movie has a great atmosphere and the suspense build-up is superb. JJ's style of heavy anamorphic lens / flare usage is prevalent and I really enjoyed it (see image above). Everyone is saying the film has a feel of goonies meets ET meets cloverfield and I'll have to agree and add that the combination is amazing. I can't wait for Abrams' next movie.
