Super 8

A group of kids accidentally film something incredible and then the race is on to save the town. It's very much in the style of E.T. and Close Encounters, Spielberg is the producer I believe. It's written and directed by JJ Abrams, which perked my interest as I thought StarTrek was pretty good.

This just doesn't work though, it's not terrible by any means, some good effects in it, but the whole thing just feels like someone working far too hard to copy Spielberg and failing. Story is a bit light weight, ending a predictable let down. Sad




Captain America

Slow, boring and once again the story has been 'phoned in', very disappointing. The best thing about the film is the first 15minutes when the hero has his head CGI'd onto a short wimpy guy's body. I couldn't help staring at the join between head and body, it was well done, but the 'uncanny valley' kicked in as it just wasn't quite right.
