Great review Cas. Totally agree with your intro. Loved the Japanese Jackson 5 cover of ‘I want you back’ in the end credits.

For whatever reason I just couldn't get into this film. Not sure why since everyone is like 'Oh it's great'. But have tried twice and never made it more than halfway through due to mind-numbing boredom. I'm sure it's one of those 'It's me and not you' things since I appear to be in the minority.

One of the most surprising and purely fun films I have seen in the last few years.

This is where you are going wrong. When I watched it I thought it was nothing special until halfway through and then it just goes mental and all slots into place - By the end I was a convert and the slower start made total sense.

Glad you got to see this Cas and nice work on tip-toeing around it. I remember when I first watched it, I was wondering what all the fuss was about until the final chapter. I ended up loving it in the end.

This surely cannot be better than Super 8's definitive in-movie guide?

You're not the only one. You can find my review on Amazon when I wat he'd it à couple of years ago. Interesting idea, I just didn't find it particularly fun.

didn't think this was quite as good as i'd hoped, but it was really good. i loved the twist, and the fact that things happen that seem a bit odd then you see why when it gets to the re-view during the "shooting of" section, my fave being
the "just put them in blond wigs andHawaiian shirts!" line in the sequel.
