Super 8

Let’s call it The Goonies in War of the Worlds filmed by Spike Jonze. We’ve also got an ET who only kills bad guys but just wants to get home. It’s aided by scruffy-haired kids with adult musings while untoward premonitions lurks around the town. It’s well-acted, grainly-filmed and involving subtler twists than your average science-fiction suburban drama. While the teenager angst and stress manifest, the ominous military work to contain the town and its newcomer. Its well worth watching.
