    Everyone who had problems with the emotional arc of Super 8 should watch Attack the Block.

    There were other people in the thread who felt that way! It's not all about you!

    Anyway, ossy's friends are all very good actors.

    Having watched this before the actual London riots was a lot of fun. I don't think I'd enjoy it as much if I watched it now, because it would remind me of those awful riots.

    Actually, for me, the scene where Moses gets handed his first package of drugs to sell for Hi-Hat did a pretty stellar job of demonstrating how little agency some of these ~hooligans~ actually have in their own lives, but yeah I can see how you wouldn't want to be reminded of that when it's so in vogue to characterize them as violent subhuman thugs.

    Saw this yesterday and loved it. Well done with a particularly disturbing real life feel to it.

    I'm glad you enjoyed it. Hopefully this gets the cult following it deserves.

    I wanted to see this, but after summarizing it to my brother he was like "That sounds stupid" and now I'd have to go see it alone, and only losers go see movies alone. I'm looking at you, JCer who often sees movies alone, you're a loser.

    This was really good. I can't remember the last time I saw such a solidly-constructed action movie. So good.

    WHATEVER, FRIEDA. He's not cool enough to see movies by himself. Forget that noise.

    Good, if it's either missing out on a movie because no one else wants to or seeing it alone, I'd rather be a loser.
