Super 8

Great movie, makes me think of Goonies.  It's about some kids making a movie and capturing a unbelievable train wreck.  The train was carrying some top secret government cargo, that escapes after the wreck and is unleashed into the small town.  But the government won't own up to it.  There are some elements of ET here also.  I loved it.  The kid actors are great, the lead kid is a cutie.  The train wreck is amazing.  The "thing" that escapes is ok, and the ending could be better (my nephew Dustin "hated" it, but I think he had really high expectations, that I didn't).  There's some humor thrown into a lot of intense scenes.  I say it's a must see and give it 3.5 out of 4 stars.  Almost forgot, wait until the credits, they show the kids finished film.
