'Super 8' soundtrack review
“Super 8” is a heartfelt homage to the childhood of J.J. Abrams and the close-knit group of filmmakers he grew up with, including his longtime friend and collaborator composer Michael Giacchino. Why this sincere, pitch perfect, character driven little film was the victim of so much backlash is beyond me. Are we really so cynical now that audiences refuse to go along with anything the least bit nostalgic or sentimental?
