The summer movie season is hitting its stride. Despite mixed reviews for Hangover Part 2 and the the new 'Pirates movie, people are hitting the theaters and we haven't even had the final Harry Potter, Captain America or the movie I have been most looking forward to since last year, Super 8. A throwback in setting to early Spielberg suspense movies, from the mind of JJ Abrams (and produced by Spielberg), I thought this had the makings of big sleeper hit. Of course the movie would have to deliver the goods and if this first full review is any indication, it does. I will be in a theater the weekend of June 10th for sure.
There was a time, back in the late ’70s and early ’80s, when blockbusters had heart and soul to go with their balls, when the testosterone and the money shots were duly arrived at after periods of intimacy.
