    Hey filmman, what’d you think of Super 8? I saw it the other night too and am curious as to your thoughts.

  3. I didn’t get a chance to go.
    Gonna go tomorrow, likely early afternoon.
    Would like to do a review of it…if Slim or Brian aren’t going to…

  4. rob rob rob. gonna make me break my *new* system that has worked WONDERS for me so far and go back to the old tried and true

    Super 8 $34.567m
    1. Less
    2. More

  5. Oooh, this is a tough one. I’m tempted to say it’ll be a tie, but that’ has seriously failed for me in the past. So I’m going to go with:

    X-Men: 29 million
    1. Less
    2. Less

    My alternate (doesn’t count) guess just for the record would be Super 8 at 28.5 million.

  6. Super 8 won’t be no Cloverfield, yo. It will need legs to be a big hit.

    Super 8 – $31 million

    1. Less
    2. Less

  7. This race is gonna be tighter than a too small bikini on a too long ride home from the beach.

  8. Absurd nonsense.
    The film’s gonna tank harder than M. Night’s career.

    On a side note: the onigiri she made was about as close to perfect as onigiri can get…so I guess that kinda made up for things-

  9. Wait…M. Night still has a pretty good career. After all, he made over 7 million for The Village…

  10. Okay…take the monster out…and everything having to DO with the monster…and you have a pretty poignant coming-of-age film with some great performances. However…*everything* with and pertaining to the monster is absurd. nonsense. that weighs down and flat-out steamrolls any goodwill created by said ‘coming of age’ story. It’s as if it’s 2 different movies, one that doesn’t belong, and one that I would HAPPILY watch. And it’s very distinct, that moment you say “Shit….and it was really kinda good.”

  11. So you have a decent 20 minute short film in a really poor movie. Poor. The ending is so bad I can’t even…please tell me when spoilers are okay because there are two words for this movie that may give it away-not really give it away, but make even less of a reason to see it-

  12. Really, I would consider myself a pretty staunch Abrams defender. Star Trek was great. He had a great thing going.. But he erred pretty strongly with Super 8.

  13. Have you guys seen the ads for Midnight in Paris? It tells you nothing about the movie save that Owen Wilson likes to walk around Paris and Rachel McAdams is slightly peeved about it. Oh yeah – and they don’t even mention that it’s a Woody Allen movie.

  14. I enjoyed Super 8. I’ll have a full review up later, but to address Filmman’s problems: I think the key to the film is the overall nature of the theme and the title–it’s like a kid’s home made movie made with a multimillion dollar budget, and thus is not meant to stand strict scrutiny. I wasn’t honing in on consistencies of logic, I was pleased by the world the film created. Yes, it was fairly predictable, and the scene at the end between Joe and the monster was a litte eye-rolling, but I dug it.

  15. I enjoyed Super8. It’s definitely more Goonies than ET or Close Encounters (and kind of turns Cloverfield at the end), but seen through the Goonies lens it mostly all worked (even the scene between me and the monster) for me

  16. Actuals are in: Super 8 with $35,451,168. Filmman may have hated the movie, but he gets the bonus points! Joe is second.

    The bonus questions were both less.

  17. Since LeBron James isnt going to use this any time soon: It’s good to be the King.
    (*Yes*…I got a LeBron James dig into a comment online today.)

    On a side note: *Why* this movie?
