First Reactions to J.J. Abrams’ SUPER 8!
Saturday marked the first public screenings of J.J. Abrams new sci-fi film Super 8. Journalists in attendance were under an embargo … until now. Paramount has given them the go-ahead to tweet about the film. So we sauntered over to Twitter and snagged some of the choice tweets:
Steven Weintraub of Collider said:
It’s great. Made me feel like a kid again
Jen Yamato of Movieline said:
I enjoyed Super 8’s Goonies vibe; the kids are great. Has its problems, but none are deal breakers for me…though they will be for others.
Jenna Busch of Moviefone said:
Tweet embargo is lifted, so I can finally say it: Super 8 is AMAZING!!!! Nostalgic, action-packed and just damn entertaining! Woot!
Manny the Movie Guy said:
SUPER 8 is funny, spooky, haunting, uplifting…old school filmmaking at its finest…YOU WILL LOVE IT!
Saw Super 8. Wow. Just wow. Days later I’m still happy it’s like Christmas for monster movie fans!
Peter Sciretta of Slash Film said:
I’m now allowed to tell you: Yes, I have seen Super 8 – Loved it, they don’t make these types of movies anymore.
We were unable to find a negative review. This was our most anticipated movie of this summer. Now you see why.
