Just watched it and its a great movie. So many of the plot points and moments in the movie basically draw a picture of a cover story, and what really happened. I really enjoyed the movie overall. But wow did it poke fun at us sheeple, and how slow we are to see the truth.

I find that at least 70 to 80 percent of movies coming out nowadays have underlying themes of conspiracy and government deceit. 90 percent of videogames.

Any hidden meanings/messages you picked up on?

I also had the privilege of watching the movie this evening, and really enjoyed it.

There were a few moments during it in which I thought to myself 'hmm, I bet this is how it really is' when I noticed a few key things that really stuck out to me. However, I have been a 'conspiracy theorist' for years and reading/watching/hearing certain things always pique my thoughts to explore more.

There will be no spoilers here, so please do not ask about specifics... all I can say is even though the movie is made to be fictitious, I think there is quite a bit of truth hidden within.

I watched "Battle for Los Angeles", well, some of it anyway (terrible movie) and it seemed someone or something was completely taking the piss out of the sheeple and in the most blatantly obvious way. It did have that recurring motif of a mothership hovering over a city (V, Independence Day, the one where the aliens got drunk on sour milk etc). does super 8 have a mothership?, Haven't seen it yet

There is a whole "FEMA DEATH TRAIN" scene. And an obvious situation where a "CHEMICAL FIRE" that evacuates the entire town well after many weird things start happening.

But Im just playing to the crowd. or am I?

It was a very good movie. The idea was well played out and from a slightly different perspective in many ways.

It shows a plausible situation and how We theorists might deal with it but I really do not think it was trying to tell us anything.

The Train was U.S. Air Force not FEMA.

No Mothership.

Thats all you get.

But you can watch it here.

I thought this was the most predictable, mindless movie I have ever seen. It was torture to sit through, and for a Spielberg film? Amateurish. Great movie to watch at home on a mindless Sunday afternoon. The demographic for this movie is 12 to 14 year old boys. Save your time and money on this one.

It's the popular thing.
We love the idea that something wrong, wierd or just plain evil is happening under our noses.
Why though?

is that how the skeptics view it? No, I don't "love" the idea that something wrong is happening underneath our noses. Do I have reason to believe so? yes.
