10 Reasons Not to See Super 8

Sure, maybe there are a few reasons you might want to see Super 8...

But there are plenty MORE reasons not to see it.

 

1. Spielberg

(source)

Sure, maybe he's one of the best filmmakers of all time, but he's also responsible for some pretty sh*tty films... may I remind you of AI: Artificial Intelligence, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Transformers.

 

2. Speaking of Transformers

(source)

That trailer for Super 8 looks awfully familiar. Does this guy Spielberg just make the same movie over and over with different titles and character names?

 

3. You could be eating Jell-O pudding

(source) 

Why waste your money on a $20 IMAX ticket, when you could use it for $20's full potential: Jell-O pudding.

 

4. You could be seeing Bridesmaids instead

(source)

If you haven't already seen this, hold off on Super 8 and see Bridesmaids this weekends. Do it for Kristen Wiig (or Justice). This movie is awesome. It's not a chick flick, it's just a really funny film that is well made... and totally worth your money.

 

5. There is not one mention of vampires

(source)

Can you imagine? A movie without vampires? No sparkles? Where are the sparkles?!

 

6. Expensive

(source)

Do you know what it cost to process 2 hours of Super-8 film? Neither do I. What will his next movie be called? Telegraph?

 

7. You should be saving up for Harry Potter

(source)

The new Harry Potter comes out soon(ish) so you should be saving your money to go see the midnight showing prepared, sporting a full-on costume.

 

8. Kamehameha Day

(source)

You should be celebrating Kamehameha (June 11). A holiday celebrating our nation's first state in Hawaii, Hawaii. Give it some love! (It loves you.)

 

9. It's starring Elle Fanning

(source)

Sure, she's adorable and all... but she was in some Nutcracker adaptation. And that, that's just unforgivable.

 

10. Super

(source)

The only good movie ever with the word "super" in the title was Superman.
