Super 8 is an entertaining, nostalgic experience that filters a multitude of elements from some of the greatest family friendly movies to create a classic movie going experience. The film is the latest creation from director J. J. Abrams and producer Steven Spielberg. The film stars Joel Courtney (1st movie), Elle Fanning (Somewhere), Riley Griffiths (1st movie), Ryan Lee (Kings of the Evening), Zach Mills (Kit Kitteridge), Gabriel Basso (Alabama Moon), Kyle Chandler (The Day the Earth Stood Still 2008), Ron Ellard (Freeland), and Noah Emmerich (Fair Game).
The film has a terrific look and feel to it while it whisks the audience into the 70’s. The dialogue, wardrobe, and cinematography all compliment the film’s story. These all add to the innocence of the movie while the mystery unfolds. Abrams effective use of the camera and lighting all contribute to this soon to be classic tale of science fiction.
