Over at the Herald.

In short, Super 8 is pretty great, and the main reason for this is simply that J.J. Abrams is an excellent storyteller. Well, also an excellent director, a guy who gets equally superb performances out of his cast and his action scenes. Oh, and his lens flares. Can’t forget the nonstop march of lens flares.

Even though I couldn’t quite buy Super 8‘s emotional payoff, I was affected by it anyway. I left the theater feeling so, so good. I think a movie deserves extra credit for that. I’ll be waiting for Abrams’ next one.
