Research shows a connection between kids’ healthy self-esteem and positive, diverse representations in books, TV shows, and movies.
Is it any good?
Let’s forget any attempts at originality, why don’t we, because SUPER 8 won’t stun with innovation.It definitely feels like an homage to great movies past, particularly E.T., Stand by Me, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind.(Producer Steven Spielberg’s guiding hand is definitely felt.) And the bare bones of the plot are certainly familiar, as is much of the dialogue.
What is GetHuman’s Relationship to Super 8?
In short, the two companies are not related.GetHuman builds free tools and shares information amongst customers of companies like Super 8.For large companies that includes tools such as our GetHuman Phone, which allows you to call a company but skip the part where you wait on the line listening to their call technology music.We’ve created these shortcuts and apps to try to help customers like you (and ourselves!) navigate the messy phone menus, hold times, and confusion with customer service, especially with larger companies.And as long as you keep sharing it with your friends and loved ones, we’ll keep doing it.
What’s the story?
Summer 1979, Lillian, Ohio: Six teens are making a zombie movie that they hope to submit to a festival.For Joe (Joel Courtney), it’s a chance to bury himself in a project that might help him move on from his mother’s recent death …and avoid the tense existence he shares with his father, the town’s deputy sheriff (Kyle Chandler).Alice (Elle Fanning), a relative newcomer to the troupe, wants a respite from the home she shares with her tortured, alcoholic father (Ron Eldard).Wannabe auteur Charles (Riley Griffiths) longs to see a finished product, and so do their three other friends.But while filming a pivotal scene, the teens witness a mysterious train crash of monumental proportions, one that unleashes a military crackdown on their once-tranquil town, as well as a newcomer of extraterrestrial proportions.
