Watching Super 8 I was taken back to my childhood. Set in 1979 the movie follows a group of pre-teen friends as they attempt to make an amateur zombie movie. One night while shooting a scene at an old train station platform they witness a monumental train wreck. Miraculously cheating death they come to realise that the train belongs to the US Air Force. Soon the military role in and the town is evacuated. Everything about this film has the Spielberg stamp all over it and while he didn't direct it you can't help but feel that he had a large hand in it (he's known to secretly direct portions of the films he produces). I think back to movies I grew up with like The Goonies and Monster Squad... and Super 8 brings back that sense of childhood adventure. I really hope that the kids of today embrace this one because if it were one of my childhood movies I would definitely look back on it with affection... hell I still might even.
