Writer/director J.J. Abrams teams with producer Steven Spielberg for this period sci-fi thriller set in the late '70s, and centering on a mysterious train crash in a small Ohio town. Summer, 1979: a group of young friends are filming a Super-8 movie when a pickup truck derails a speeding train. When the locals start to disappear and even the inquisitive deputy can't come up with answers, suspicions emerge that the incident was anything but an accident. As the truth finally begins emerge, no one is prepared to learn what now stalks the unsuspecting citizens of this once quiet community. Kyle Chandler and Elle Fanning star.~Jason Buchanan
I love this film for its’ crashing train sequence in Dolby TrueHD 7.1! Only I wish it were in Dolby Atmos! Dolby Vision and the HDR10 are pristine and the darks are dark and the brights and highlights with contrast !
I had not seen this movie in many years so when I saw it at Best Buy I had to get it. I figured this would be a fun movie for the family. All I can say is if you have a great sound system the train crash scene will knock you out of your seats! It is one of the best explosion scenes you will ever hear in a movie. Just wow!
Probably the greatest family sci-fi movie of this century.
If you are a huge fan of 1980's family sci-fi movies like E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1981) , Poltergeist (1982) , Goonies (1985) , Stand By Me (1986) , The Lost Boys (1987) , The Monster Squad (1987) or Harry And The Hendersons (1987) just to name a few simular classics than this movie is right up your alley.
If there is best films made from the 21st Century and if Super 8 doesn't make it on that list something is wrong with the world because this is as classic as it gets.
I love this movie. It feels like a classic (it reminds me of The Goonies) adventure/action movie. J.J. Abrams directed and wrote this one. Great job! This movie has the J.J. Abram light glare scenes, action, adventure, comedy, drama and the highlight -> the kids are all great actors/actresses! The adults seem to take a backseat while the young adults take the wheel! I love it and I highly recommend this movie! As for the 4K... it looks even more amazing with amazing sound quality... especially the huge train scene (I won't spoil it!).

When you watch this your in for a good time. Good story and characters. A lot of fun. Shot on film. This has Dolby Vision and HDR 10 and has a very good look to it. Much brighter move with a more vibrant image. If you like ET & Goonies this is a must have. Has similar 80's look and feel to it. Dolby True HD 7.1 mix is a nice audio track and even demo worthy. Lot's of atmosphere and environmental action here. This is a top of the line audio presentation and a wonderful listening experience.
