[QUOTE="CaveJohnson1"]Good acting, plus some good moral and ethics issues covered.
the acting between the dad and his daughter, and the dad and his son, was so horrible, SO HORRIBLE, did you see the part where the girl was kidnapped by the monster after the dad crashed the car?
What about the black guy in the car that crashed the train? The black guy with no real backstory who crashed the train, first off, wow the trains sequence. It was so unnecessary, how did that car not blow up? Why did the black guy tell the kids they were going to die or whatever, it just didn't correlate with the plot.
Super 8 is horrible, every kid swears like a 30 year old would, it was obviously not Spielberg who directed this garbage, and you know what it was like?
It was like Cloverfield, meets the Goonies, Meets LOST, Meets That 70's Show.SPOILER WARNING!
The black guy was a scientist who worked witht he monster when they captured it, he began to empathize with the monster after they formed a short psychic bond. He decided what the military was doing was unethitcal and decided to try and save the monster. That's the back story.
The train sequence was cool, it keeps you on the edge of your seat to see major characters having rough scrapes with death, it also released the monster and his spaceship, those were major plot points.
Cars don't magically explode in the real world, that's not how gasoline works.
Kids swear alot, they think it's cool, do you remember 6th grade? I do, kids talki like sailors. I didn't think they spoke that badly to the point where I would notice.
The black guy told them they were going to die because he new the government would kill them because they were witnesses to the crash and thus liabilities.
Did you pay attention at all?
The car wasn't even totaled after it hit the train first of all. Secondly, the black guy survived the crash, Thirdly, you didn't feel empathy for the monster or the black guy because you never saw the relationship between him and the monster grow at all.
It was poorly executed, the whole film.
