This is being dubbed Steven Spielberg meets Stephen King. Call me crazy, but that sounds really appealing to me.

From the trailers it has a bit of an ET feel, and I'm also reminded a little of Super 8. I think those are both Spielberg movies. I wasn't quite sure where the Stephen King vibe comes in, until I saw these pictures.

Spoiler: Pics




Definitely introduces a creepy/spooky feel that wasn't really in the trailers.

I'll definitely be checking this out.

Re: Stranger Things - Netflix

Watched the first two episodes and I'm hooked. Like the feel of the show, the acting (Winona Ryder is really good!) and the story.

Spoiler: Episode 1 and 2
Here are some random comments/observations/questions:
  • Judging by her calling the government guy (Matthew Modine) "Papa", I think the girl is a human/alien hybrid.
  • I think both the girl and alien escaped from the government facility. At this point the alien seems dangerous (seems to have attacked the girl at the pool and maybe Will) and the girl seems good although she killed some government people who tried to recapture her.
  • I like the kids, Will's friends.
  • I liked the cafe owner, too bad the evil government people killed him.
  • I like the police chief, but if I were him I would consider calling in the state police or FBI.

Re: Stranger Things - Netflix

Binge watched the entire thing. I really needed this. Wow. Everything was incredible. This should not be missed. I am overwhelmed with all the greatness in this. Every trope was there - ET, Close Encounters, Goonies, you name it. But not just nods - it felt original and real. The dialog is perfect. And yes, I absolutely love Ryder in this. She is my dream woman and always has been.

Re: Stranger Things - Netflix

Just watched the 1st two episodes last nite. So far so weird.
Show is freakishly awesome. I get the whole Spielberg/King likeness.
To me it had a little X-Files/Eerie, Indiana feel to it as well.
Dunno who the frak The Duffer Bros are, but gotta feeling we'll be hearing more bout them soon enough.
BTW - is that their real last names, cuz it sounds like something straight outta Coen Bros movie.
Agreed that Winona is great in this. The gal who plays El(le?) is great as well.
As a kid of the 80s, I dbl dig the show so far. Only 2 epis in & I'd buy the soundtrack right now!
Good to see another Sorkin alum as well (The Newsroom's Harbour) as the sheriff.
Here's a pretty good review. Only read 1st couple paragraphs so as not to be spoiled.
Kinda like the original title of Montauk even better, tho.
However if it's more of an anthology then I guess Stranger Things does work better.
Hope to finish this li'l gem up today or tomorrow.
