Sydney Quotes the Movies – Super 8

I know I am a little late seeing this movie, but I was confused.  I thought it was a kids movie about aliens.  I didn’t realize it was just a movie with a lot of kids in it.

It was not a kids movie.  And, it was really good.

I was blown away by the cast and the acting skills of these kids.  This movie covered some pretty heavy material and these kids did an amazing job.

You have a group of kids making a horror movie for a film competition and while taping one night, a car crashes into a military train carrying some questionable cargo.  The train derails and the kids find themselves in a horror movie in real life.

“Stop talking about production value, the Air Force is going to kill us.”
“Guys, I have never had a teacher aim a gun at me!”
“I can’t believe we’re breaking into the school. Who does that? Nobody does that. Idiots do that.”
“Kids walking around with there own stereo is just what we need. It’s a slippery slope, my friend.” -Funny ipod reference.
“I think it’s the Russians.”
“I’m just kind of shocked at this entire conversation.”
 “I’m thirsty. I’m in a war zone.”
“I’m just doing the best I can to save you.”
“Bad things happened. You can still live.”

It was an intense action packed movie.  I would expect nothing less from JJ Abrams and Steven Spielburg, but it was sweet and funny, too.  Joel Courtney is just too cute and acted his butt off in this movie.  You don’t hear too much about male kid movie stars anymore and this kids is just that.  I am looking forward to seeing some of his other movies. I had no idea how good he was, plus, he is the most famous person I have following me on Twitter. How cool is that?

Have you seen Super 8?  What kid was your favorite?

  1. I watched it on Netflix not too long ago, and it’s my new favorite movie! It was really well written and acted. Joel Courtney is following me on Twitter, too, lol! That’s really cool that he’s into his fans!

    1. I think he is actually the one tweeting, too. I hear a lot of celebrities don’t do their own tweets. I have Chef Gordon Elliott following my personal twitter account. He actually answers my direct tweets all the time, too.

  2. I loved the movie… Until the end. I don’t know what it was about the ending that derailed the entire thing for me, but there was something about it that just sat wrong and had me wondering what the hell just happened. I’ve still watched it 10 times since it’s come out on DVD though, so that’s something at least, lol=)

  3. I remember being surprised by this movie, because as you mention I had not realized it was an adult movie with lots of kids in it 😉 I liked that it was a movie about people making a movie. And there are some great quotes!
