Super 8 is Coming!

So the highly secretive Super 8 is coming out this weekend, and we are DYING to see it! A lot of effort went into keeping the plot a secret, say J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg, director and producer respectively.

"After witnessing a mysterious train crash, a group of friends in the summer of 1979 begin noticing strange happenings going around in their small town, and begin to investigate into the creepy phenomenon." [IMDB]

Oh lordy-loo, this looks so good! It's action packed and mysterious, but because the plot revolves around these kids, it seems kinda family friendly as well. They are making it seem like a monster/alien movie, but my gut instinct says it will turn out to be something very different causing all these weird events. The only problem about so much hype, suspense, and secrecy about what "it" is, is that when it's revealed, we'll most likely be disappointed. Like some grand wide shot of a pterodactyl (I spelled that right on the first shot, yeaahh!) three-quarters of the way through the movie, and everyone will just groan and go "...stupid."

Regardless, I'm still itching to know. What do you think? Is your curiosity peaked?

I went to the Drive-In (JEALOUS ALREADY?) and saw it on Saturday.

I wasn't a fan of the movie, and I think I'm done with Abrams' super-secret movies as they never seem to be all that they are made out to be.

The Drive-In is still awesome though!

omg!!! MC, we ALMOST went on Saturday! We debated it for a long time! Sucks that it was disappointing. But... how was Thor??

We didn't see Thor at the drive-in. We saw it in theatre's opening weekend.

Thor was OK for what it is - A lead in to The Avengers movie. It's no where near as good as Ironman, but it's brillant compared to Ironman 2.

There are alot of Easter eggs/references to other character's in the Marvel universe & The Avengers specifically (Hawkeye being my favorite) but they are subtle, unlike Ironman 2, where they shoved them down your throat.

Of course, like most Marvel movies, you have to stay past the credits.
