Who is this movie for? Not kids!
Who is this movie for? Me (42yo) or my kids (13yo)? If it's for me then I'm turned off instantly when cars and light bulbs start turning on and off automatically. How asinine! How old school!. I'm an adult now. How could some insect alien evolve to handle technology like that. Even my kid wouldn't buy that silliness. If the movie was for my kid then they'll have to get rid of all the F*** words and pot talk. Yeah my 13, 10, and 7 year olds know those words but what's the point.
Like so many movies, this one aims for the parent and the kid and ends up missing them both. Spielberg was good... a long time ago! My kids were not exposed to the hype of this movie and saw it at a friends house. They came off not liking it much.
If you think the Beetles could cut it as a modern band then you'll probably like this movie. For me Spielberg, the Beetles, and Marilyn Monroe belong in the past. If I want nostalgia I'll got rent something from then.
