Super 8 (2011)

Film makers J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg created here is an homage to sci-fi pop films of the 1970s and 80s where children are the stars and magic is in the air (think E.T. meets The Goonies). The movie is appropriately straddles the two decades as it is set in 1979. The young actors are set on making their own movie on super 8 film and inadvertently draw attention to themselves when they are caught shooting at the site of an alien escape. The feds are on their trail as the kids try to solve the mystery.

The film is masterfully shaped and expertly executed making for a really fun movie to watch.
