Super 8 (2011)
Stand by me mixed with some SF elements...
I liked this movie, even it offers nothing not much new and all of it's parts can be found in former movies (Stand by me, ET or soft alien monster movies)
It has a charm. The child actors, especially the two main characters are acting fine, and the movie making scenes are fun, this part clearly brings the Stand by me feeling. (Don't miss the end of the movie, there is some surprise there.)
Unfortunately the story is slim, the supporting characters are cliché (mean USAF officer who finally gets his punishment, strict but warm hearted father(s), mysterious professor etc), but the CGI parts are done well.
If you want to see a true sci-fi, or an exciting thriller (as IMDb classification indicates) than this is not for You, but if you liked Stand by me, or you like movies where child actors get the spotlight (mixed with some good CGI effects), than you should not miss this.
