From Erika D. Peterman over at Shotgun Reviews:
The movie's real triumph, however, is in its endearing characters. Courtney, who I swear is channeling Henry Thomas from 1982, is teriffic as the vulnerable but spunky Joe. I loved his scenes with Fanning, who plays Alice with such quiet, convincing melancholy. Griffiths steals many a scene as a tyrannical film director-in-training, and the movie audience laughed every time he opened his mouth.
From Ben Flanagan at Alabama Live:
Compiling a Valentine's Day movie list gets less dreamy and more tedious each year you try it, especially when you realize nearly every movie qualifies as a romance.
A modern film narrative often feels naked without at least an inkling of a romantic storyline, not that every movie needs one. We just expect it now.
The 2011 movie year gave us a swell crop of stories bursting with romantic feeling, including some up for the Best Picture Oscar.
Newb Joel Courtney and Elle Fanning find young love in J.J. Abrams' sci-fi adventure "Super 8,"sharing the film's most poignant moments, heightened by their performances and Michael Giacchino's subtle musical score.
