Super 8 [videorecording]

    Review by:  Lisa

Title:  Super 8 [videorecording]

Starring:  Elle Fanning, Amanda Michalka, Kyle Chandler, Joel Courtney, Ryan Lee

Collection:  Movies

In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witnesses a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon they suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local deputy tries to uncover the truth, something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.

Written and Directed by J.J. Abrams (Felicity, Alias, Lost), and Produced by Steven Spielberg, Super 8 is reminiscent of the classic movies of years gone by, with a feel of nostalgia for flicks like Goonies.  It has it all:  great plot, characters and actors  that you can root for, meaningful story arcs mixed with fast-past action, and impressive visual effects.  Abrams has captured the look and feel of the movies I loved growing up in the late 70’s and early 80’s, and I hope that this is the first of many collaborations with Spielberg.

The movie is PG-13.
