    Wow, unfair unneeded stab at Super 8 there?

      Yeah... What's wrong with Super 8? I liked it a lot.

        It had its flaws, (too much shakey cam, not enough clear shots of the alien) but overall it was a great little movie that perfectly captured the feel of the old Spielberg Amblin Entertainment films of the 80s I thought.

        Also, I don't see at all where the comparisons are coming from for the work?

    Yeah Super 8 was a better movie than you're a journo.

      True. I love Super 8, one of only three films I've seen twice at the cinema, sounds like this wank doesn't have a soul.

    Aww Yiss! I love Simon's work! It's great to see him being recognised here.

    Super 8 was really good, and this art is too.

    Isn't that first one Elliot's house from ET?

    Holy shit some people really took offence there xD
