#1: Why have Spielberg and JJ Abrams never yet worked together? Match made in heaven. Particularly for a friendly summertimey alien flick.
#2: I didn't realized that Spielbergian was a thing. But it totally is. Low, wide shots of kids on bikes at dusk. Dads alienated from their sons. Entirely. And it's not bad--like some parts of this movie feel really familiar, and in another teams' hands I would call it predictable, but here it just feels stylized and comfortable.
#3: I loved it as an ode to filmmaking.
I dunno. I say yes.
