I saw Super 8. Spielberg had his hands somewhere on this film, so I knew there were going to be at least a few lingering face shots. But he didn't actually direct it, so I figured it wouldn't be too bad. Holy shit was I wrong.
I'm not saying Steven Spielberg is obsessed with human faces. No, wait, I am.
But I thought he was aware of his problem. I thought he'd been getting help. I didn't expect him to find an enabler.
Speaking of J. J. Abrams, all his movies have the same monster.
The story was pretty cool. The disparate plot lines integrated seamlessly. Some of them were sappy, but the seamless integration and pacing were good enough that the sappiness could be enjoyed or ignored according to the viewer's taste. And there were lots of faces.
