All right, mom, I'm leaving. Spending the night at Alex's house so we can play a new video game.
Have whatever you want, honey.
You know what, I lied, actually. We're gonna ride our bikes out into the desert, at night, alone. Without supervision.

Okay, see you then, sweetie.
Also rob a bank. Go to Mexico. Maybe even start a new life.

To those who want to watch 'Earth to Echo', please be informed that this is a vertigo inducing film due to it's constant 'shakiness'. This is another film that makes use of the 'found-footage' genre and incorporating it with visual images from using GoPro-like cameras. Those who often play 'Counterstrike' video games might not experience the same thing. Here we have a film that brings back memories from watching those classic late 80's and early 90's sci-fi films. 'Earth to Echo' has a lot of elements borrowed from other films like 'E.T', 'Batteries Not Included', 'Flight of the Navigator' and 'Short Circuit and maybe a bit of 'Monsters Squad' thrown in as well. Now imagine the film being shown through a shaky camera lens ala 'Cloverfield' and 'Chronicle'. And there you have it .an adventure science fiction film starring a group of teenagers on a quest to help an extraterrestrial find its way home, seen through the camera lens of one of the kid who happens to have a habit of filming his surroundings and posting them on Youtube. So, if you feel like watching a feel good family flick and have immunity to shaky camera work then this is definitely a movie for you.
