Super 8

A throwback to early days of my film-watching: ET, Goonies, Stand By Me. Bunch of kids who have their adventure gene on turbo boost and deal with issues that adults struggle to - in this case an extra-terrestrial creature thats gone nuts. Super 8 starts promisingly, progresses steadily and then it dissolves into a rather sugary end. Wouldn't know if I would have enjoyed it any more if I had watched this in the 80s. Why should I care, I am not the producer.
