This movie, like many have said, is like a mashup of The Goonies, E.T., and Cloverfield.

But that in no way means it's bad. It's good.

I agree this movie really reminded me of good family movies from when I was a kid. Exciting and fun for the whole family without being watered down or poorly done.

I wouldn't recommend the honeymooner suite at the Super 8 in Toledo, Ohio. The carpet and bed were really grimey, the TV was from the 70s, the hot tub was downright scary, and semis idled in the all night in the field next to the motel.

@thefowles1: Its astounding that I used the exact same explanation last week when my buddy was asking me wether to rent it.

@portezbie: Agreed. Left this movie really happy. Buddy aspect, childhood innocence, sci-fi fun.

I thought this movie was pretty good until I saw Attack the Block. I'm so glad I saw Super 8 first.

@thefowles1: I've never seen E.T. or Cloverfield, but The Goonies is a classic that I've watched many times over the years. Thanks, I'll throw this in my Netflix queue.

J.J. Abrams is the Stephen King of movies. And I don't mean that as a complement. He's prolific but lazy. The Walkman in the movie, for example, is from one year in the future, and the bicycles in the rack are in the aggregate about a decade too old, yet later on there is a BMX bike from the future. Lazy, sloppy, mildly entertaining. It seems no one wants to work to be Great anymore...

@thefowles1: I would consider this movie to be a remake of Stand By Me, except aliens instead of a dead body and Coach Taylor instead of Jack Bauer.
