Since the kids were making a zombie movie, there are several references to director George A. Romero. For example, Romero Chemicals as the evil company, plus the poster for one of his movies in Joe's bedroom and reference on the radio. See more »
When the kids get to the train station Martin's pages blow away and he chases after them (at around 45 mins). He is immediately seen in the next shot sitting on a bench studying his lines (at at 11:46). There was not enough time to get to the bench, whether he managed to get the lost pages or not. See more »
This was- and I don't take this claim lightly- one of the worst movies I've ever seen. After it was finally over, I rode home from the theatre in utter disbelief, feeling as though I needed a shower to cleanse the reeking resonance from myself. The one positive thing I have to say about the film is that the effects- at times (and mostly early on so that you don't walk out after twenty minutes)- were impressive. The plot is unoriginal and corny; a failing attempt at injecting the overdone "aliens terrorize a small town" movie with a bit of drama and depth. After an hour I was still waiting for a glimmer of improvement, only to be wildly disappointed. I am still awestruck that Steven Spielberg attached his name to such a tragedy as "Super 8." The only scary part of the whole experience is that this film somehow earned a stamp of approval from anybody, and the most heart-wrenching moment was when I remembered that I had paid to undergo such a painful viewing. Obviously I cannot say enough about the poor quality of "Super 8." I'd immediately refuse another showing even if I was bribed.
