Wow, only 2 people have voted so far? :'(

Captain America was a great story, but did not have much family background...would have liked to see more of how his dad and mom interacted with him.  I haven't yet seen Super 8 (Shame on you, 4WheelDrive :P).

Was excited for Super 8 but did not like it one bit.  I could go on a rant here but won't......

Yeah I saw Super 8 in theaters and couldn't have been more annoyed.  I was rolling my eyes as soon as the train started exploding.  And kept exploding.  And then exploded some more.

By the time the necklace ending scene rolled around, I had eye-rolling strain.

Glad to see Captain America win this, because Thor also annoyed me a bit, although I think it was better than Super 8.  That said, I did like some of the style, and the kids' storyline in Super 8, just they couldn't make up for all the stuff I hated.
