This looks like a mediocre sci-fi romp for the whole family that is banking on being "produced" by Spielberg.

Expect "Best comedy of the year!" and "Family-friendly fun!" from critics you've never heard of to appear on movie posters.

Your opinion is wrong. This looks utterly fantastic. I am so excited for this.

Yeah, I'm gonna go out on a limb to say this'll be one of the bigger hits of the summer. It's definitely the summer film I'm most looking forward to anyway.

You guys know this is a JJ Abrams ( of Lost and Cloverfield fame) flick, right? I really doubt it's gonna be kid friendly.

CAN. NOT. WAIT.

Trailer looks so effing epic.

[I know that's what they're designed to do. I'm a sucker for them.]

I'm excited for this. I'm not going to lie.

Are you serious? This is the torch-pass between Spielberg and Abrams, the biggest Sci-fi heroes in film.

I've got huge hopes for this one. Front of the queue on release day kinda business.

Every time I see previews for this I think, isn't that a hotel?

i'm a trailer-sucker, too.
i'd like to see this, but i've only seen write-ups so far, no trailer yet.

It was ok....cool look back at late 70's life in Mid America.
The ending was just as dumb as Cloverfield.

In other words, the movie sucked, brah.

It was a mix of Lost and ET. Two things that should not be brought together.

I actually liked it quite a bit. Saw it in a real nice IMAX (not just the 2% larger screen style.)

And it was worth it... I liked the stoner guy/camera salesman, he added some nice comedy, the movie overall was enjoyable... it was nice to see late 70s nostalgia rather than other periods that are given more screen time.

I liked it, made me depressed for some reason, but overall a thoroughly enjoyable movie

I freakin' loved this movie, I will definitely be buying it when it comes out on DVD.

Urrrrrgh, why is there such a massive release gap between the US and UK? The wait is killing me.

Saw the full trailer at an IMAX the other day, which stoked the fires something awful. God damn, I need this film.

I thought it was great!

Fantastic melange of Lost, Cloverfield, Close Encounters, ET and The Goonies.Nice amount of laughs and the relationships were well thought out. It felt a little like the nostalgia theme was a little overplayed [I'm thinking of the Walkman bit] it became a bit self-consciously manipulative at times, but hey. I'm a sucker for that kind of thing. A summer blockbuster that delivers the goods.


I will say that there's very little brain matter, here. There's nothing to think about or ponder, it just leaves you with a cheesy grin on your face. Which is fine by me!

Although, f*ck me. JJ Abrahams, leave the lens flare alone, for the love of God. Your 'signature thing' is played out.

Saw this on a very bumpy plane ride. I quite liked it, but I thought the ending was rushed and kind of strange.

This was a very good movie. At first, I didn't quite think I would like it, but it turned out that I did.

I loved it but I was dissapointed that it wasn't directed by Steven Spielburg.

I thought it was overrated.
