Super 80’s

[via  bohemea]

Just saw Super 8 last night and really enjoyed it. I LOVE old 80’s movies, and I found this film to a cross between Close Encounters, E.T, The Goonies and even a little Stand By Me.

For me, what stood out in the movie was the dymanic of the 5 kids played byJoel CourtneyRiley GriffithsRyan LeeGabriel Basso and Zach Mills. Like Stand By Me and The Goonies, these group of friends felt like they were truly a band of brothers; yelling on top of each other, insulting each other out of love, and behaving like lunitics that only each other could understand.

It also helped that J.J Abrams cast Elle Fanning and chose to direct this movie as if it really were out of Spielberg cannon from the late 70’s early 80’s. I’ll probably buy it on DVD or have it saved in my DVR for Saturday afternoons when all I need is a comfy blanket and a nostalgic story on TV.
