I wonder if the Spill crew wouldn't have minded the Spielberg homages so much if he wasn't involved in the movie. For example, Attack the Block is so obviously an homage to early John Carpenter movies, but you guys loved that.
I will have to fully disagree with you folks on this review though I did find your review entertaining regardless
one question and one observation:
any chance you guys weren't in the mood for this time of flick that night, maybe something that affected your opinion?
I'm surprised that no one thought the film director kid was an homage to Spielberg rather than Abrams, especially since the kid was more in the vein of Spielberg with his filming style.
But don't get me wrong, I still think you guys are the most entertaining movie critics with a podcast
It was the same over here in the States. I'm not entirely sure why Abrams cut that shot from the theatrical cut of the film while keeping the rest of the scene basically the same way we saw it in the trailers. I do have two theories, however:
1. That shot was shot specifically for the trailer to raise the audience's curiosity. The shot itself provokes a lot of questions as to what's trying to get out, why it's on a train, and why the Air Force is involved.
2. The shot he used in the actual cut of the film focused much more on Joe Lamb's reaction to what was busting out of the train car. So, perhaps Abrams just wanted to keep the focus on Joe's character and his reaction to the whole situation rather than to the situation itself.
But still, even with those theories in mind, I don't feel like keeping that shot in the theatrical cut of the film would have hindered the film in any way. So -in a very roundabout way-...I dunno.
this was another good summer popcorn flick
yeah it took too long to get to the monster but the characters I liked alot
love J.J. Abrams' work, he always makes solid flicks
I respect your guys opinion, even thought I loved this film.
But forget Super 8, what the Spill community really wants to know is your guys review of "Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer."
