"I watch a lot of films of all types (except chick-flicks which i avoid like the plague). Some I watch with my grandchildren and, believe me, I have sat through some serious crap - "Mr Popper's Penguins" being the most recent (God, I detest Jim Carrey). I went to "Super 8" with my grandson and with the usual rock-bottom expectations. Surprise! I actually didn't hate it! In fact I
quite liked it - of it's type it is very watchable, with a decent story and good acting by the young cast. has gone a little way to restore my faith in under 18 targeted films."
