I went to this movie without knowing much about it and I liked it quite a bit. It was nice to see Elle Fanning, who was a toddler in the first thing I saw her in (Taken) in a pretty big part, and the boy who played the lead did an excellent job for someone who has never had a TV or movie role before.
Was it a masterpiece? No. Was it fun to MST 3000 with the people I went with? Yup. And it the Super 8 film at the end was worth the price of admission. Go see it before it's gone.
