This movie has been the twinkle in my eye for at least a year now, and I want to follow it in every way possible until the day I see it, a week from today. I’ll google search that shit every day, reading whatever comes out about it, most every review, to see if this is as special a movie that I think it is going to be.
June 8 – So I’ve decided to go ahead and watch Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind, which is very similar in general plot. A certain town is rocked by something we can’t quite explain. It also is a Spielberg film, one that really shows his style of film-making, one that I’m sure will be mimicked in Super 8.
I recommend it to everyone. This is actually my first time watching all of it all the way through. It is available to stream on http://www.netflix.com/
