Super 8

 So I decided to watch Super 8 and to be honest, didn't like it all that much.  I felt the movie was going to be a cross between an action/sci-fi and horror film, but it turned out to be more of a love story and a story of friendship.Sure, the acting was good, the explosions and towards the end with all the military stuff was entertaining, but meh, I didn't quite grasp the reason the alien was even in the movie because the movie focused too much on a group of friends.

I wouldn't have known anything about the movie if it wouldn't have been for a single preview I saw at my grandmothers house, my aunt telling me it was good and the fact that was advertised in Portal 2.  Between the action showed in the commercial and the pretty suspenseful interactive preview in Portal 2 I was pretty gung-ho about seeing this however  I found myself looking at the time wondering "Where the hell is the climax?  Or the action?"  I really had no clue what was going on until the end with the main plot because the sub-plot took up most of the movie (Enough to call it the main plot really, and have what was advertised become the sub-plot)

Anyway, if I had to rate this movie (netflix rating style) I'd give it a 2 stars.  I found myself bored and miss lead by the previews and wouldn't have even wasted the time watching it if it hadn't been for said previews, and if it weren't for the high production quality it definitely would have been 1 star. Oh well. :(
