The movie spends half the time being an Amblin riff and half the time being Jaws, and then at the end it just kinda awkwardly mashes both endings together in a way that doesn't work at all thematically or logically, to the extent that we're supposed to have a big ET moment of awe and wonder as the horrific monster alien that has literally eaten townspeople for weeks gets away on his space ship.

You're supposed to feel conflicted about the alien. That's one of the things I liked about the film.

It's tonally completely absurd and does not work at all.

We're meant to be rooting for an abused creature to escape, not for it to snack on the townspeople. The kid confronts the alien about it, acknowledges what it's been through and tells it to move on.

It isn't until the alien decides to move on from its past trauma and live, that the boy does the same by letting go of the locket.

That reminds me, the design of the alien is generic dog shit.

FUCK Super 8. Stranger Things season 1 kicked it's ass.

So what you're saying is the Duffer Brothers should get a Star War once STRANGER THINGS wraps?

My favourite piss take of the whole remake thing is someone who said the yearly event would be called Incelebration. Laughed way to hard at that.

This tweet seems to give away those Remake The Last Jedi guys were joking all along: https://twitter.com/rmthelastjedi/status...91168?s=21

Burn it all down. Let it all die.

No more cute little Easter Egg rib nudges. No more winking. No more relying heavily on reminding us of good movies for some cheap lame nostalgia pop.

Let. It. Go.

SUPER 8 would have been a fantastic film if they'd just cut out that subplot about the alien. Everything to do with a gang of kids making a backyard zombie movie is gold.

Millie Bobby Brown for young Leia!

They should just SEARCH FOR SPOCK Leia and let Millie Bobby Brown play her in EPISODE IX.

with all the toxic scrutiny she already faces, you guys want her to face the full disgusting scrutiny of star war fans by casting her as leia?

WHAT DID SHE DO TO YOU???

Why would you ever recast Leia or Luke after the Han thing?

Heh, no kidding. Would anybody even want that job? Talk about your combinations of "doomed from the outset" and "will never, ever be able to escape it."

We have many different opinions here, but we can all agree that Cinema Sins is lame.
I've got good news and I've got bad news. The bad news is that I have lost my way. The good news is that I'm way ahead of schedule.

Fuck that. Not bothering to watch.

They did already do a better Star Wars riff with 11 in The Lost Sister than The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi have done in Star Wars.
