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!"
