Awesome: Super 8
- Colonel Nelec's heroic sacrifice. The only thing that would have made it perfect was if they had used a Jurassic Park shoutout during the part where Nelec stares down the monster.
- Although having Nelec say "Clever girl" would have been pushing it.
- Nelec's death is pretty much a shout-out to Muldoon's death in the first Jurassic Park movie. Also, Nelec acts like an evil version of Muldoon.
- Where Alice demonstrates some serious emotional acting chops during the rehearsal at the train station. It turns out she's channeling some serious personal issues...
- The flying appliances at the end.
- The train crash!!!
- One word: "GO!"
