Super 8

This post won't be heavy on spoilers for the J.J. Abrams/Steven Spielberg film, Super 8. I was a child of the 1980s and the first live action film I really saw was Star Wars, when my cousin brought it over one night while babysitting my brother and I. I must have been 8 or 9 at the time. This was a long time ago.

It wasn't until around the time I had my Bar Mitzvah that I finally saw E.T. (it was only because I was scared of "the creature" in the early 90s) but when I did see it, I fell in love with the movie. I saw Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

But I digress. Go see this movie. It's Spielbergian if you wish to use that term. It's right up there with both movies. I'd argue to throw in Jurassic Park there as well.
