Movie Review

Today we saw the sci-fi movie, Super 8.  It's J. J. Abrams homage to Steven Spielberg, specifically several of his movies from the 1980s and early 1990s.  While watching the film, I thought of E. T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, Goonies, and Gremlins.  It's a great PG-13 family flick.  In a few years, Elliott should enjoy it, especially since he's already trying to make movies.  When he gets his own iPhone, he could use the Super 8 app.  It's only $0.99 and, per Jim, easy to use.

A fun fact about the movie is that one of the main characters is from St. Louis. Previously, Gabriel Basso was best known as Laura Linney's son in the television series, The Big C.  I find all the behind-the-scenes trivia makes movies even more enjoyable.
