Die Welt steht vor dem Untergang… und nur Steven Spielberg kann sie in Ready Player One mit einem Haufen 80er Referenzen retten.

Director Steve McQueen’s third movie 12 Years a Slave is based on the autobiography by Solomon Northup (portrayed by Chiwetel Ejiofor). A free black man from New York in 1841 who got abducted by two men who pretending to hire him as a violinist. Very quickly Solomon – now referred to as Platt – gets sold to a slaveowner (Benedict Cumberbatch) and is facing the harsh reality of working as a slave.

Riding on a lot of Oscar buzz 12 Years a Slave had me after a few minutes and after the movie was over I had this rare moment when I realized that I actually really love both frontrunners for best picture at the Oscars (Gravity being the other contender).

Super 8 is a children’s movie…
I mean this in the best sense of the word…
A movie for people who thought “why are there no more movies for kids like the ones Steven Spielberg made?

Directed by J.J. Abrams (Star Trek XI, Mission Impossible III) the first teaser made Super 8 appear to be in the vein of Cloverfield (produced by Abrams), but make no mistake, it is not primarily about a monster.
It is a movie about a group of children who are spending the summer making a title giving super 8 movie when a big train accident happens.

But was it an accident?
And what the hell was in this train? A
nd why is the military sealing of the city?

What started out as a film project very fast turns into an adventurous sci fi story.
