  1. 1. Battle of the 80's Nostalgia - Super 8 Versus Stranger Things

    • Super 8 (2011)
    • Stranger Things (2016-)

The 80's are ripe for setting sci-fi/paranormal action/adventure films and television series, but which of these two do you find better - Stranger Things or Super 8? You decide!

 

I think Super 8 has a better well-rounded story and a better score, but I think it also would've been great as a series too, with more room to develop characters etc.

I'd never heard of The Goonies until Varese released the soundtrack, and never saw the movie until 2012.

I didn't fully watch it until a few years ago, I had friends and colleagues who have fond memories of it and I didn't understand why. I like the film now, but nostalgia has a big part to play I guess...

I enjoy both productions, but overall probably enjoy Stranger Things more

 

Pretty pointless to compare a tv series to a movie, though

not at all. It is a very good comparison between two genre bending stories.

both feature two entertaining casts. Granted the differences in the story telling but tv and movies get compared all the time.

I liked both but I connected better to Stranger Things, the horror was more real.
