Super 8

($44.99 Blu-Ray/DVD Combo, Paramount)

Go back to nostalgic E.T.-era blockbuster territory, with Lost‘s J.J. Abrams as director and Spielberg himself in the producer seat. This entertaining tale of adolescent film nerds who become embroiled in an alien conspiracy recalls elements of Stand By Me, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and other genre greats. Featurettes, deleted scenes and commentaries help fill out two-plus hours worth of extras.

Now how about getting to work on that Star Trek sequel, JJ?

NEXT: The girls tuck and pluck on RuPaul’s Drag Race!
