Super 8: Movie of the Year

Super 8 is the movie of the year. I could justify that declaration by raving about the way that J.J. Abrams (writer/director) and Steven Spielberg (producer) crafted a masterpiece from a technical standpoint or by describing how Super 8 deftly evokes nostalgia without being maudlin or mawkish but there is a simpler and more profound way to capture Super 8's impact: in the packed theater where I saw the film, no cell phone displays lit up for two hours and the movie received two standing ovations--one after the main feature ended and the second after the "Easter egg" concluded during the credits.

Go see Super 8; you won't be disappointed--and make sure you don't leave until after the credits end!
