Before the movie hit theaters, fans really had no clear picture of 'Super 8's' plot. All anyone really knew was that the movie included A. A Train Crash, B. A Monster and C. A Small, Normally Quiet Town Filled with Inquisitive Kids (and missing dogs). If you haven't seen 'Super 8' yet, I won't elaborate any more. Good news, though: The 'Super 8' DVD is (tentatively) set for release on November 22, 2011.

    Martin: "I don't like it when you call me that..."
    Cary: "I'm sorry, Smartin, let's go cry about it."

    Great exchanges like this one make 'Super 8' much more than an action movie. Spielberg's influence is heavy throughout, but especially in the scenes with the kids.

    Cary: "Hey guys, its okay, i found my fireworks!"

    Not all the quotes from Super 8 are serious and ominous - some of the best, funnest lines are reserved for the kids, especially Cary and Charles. Didn't everyone have a friend back in the day who had a bit of pyro in him?
