Thanks Misters Abrams & Spielberg for SUPER 8!


Dear Misters Abrams and Spielberg,

I just want to say thank you for a fun night at the cinema! Super 8 is brilliant! It has been a long time since I have wanted to get up and cheer at the end of a film, but that’s exactly what I did when the credits started rolling on Super 8.

After a spate of really bad films, Super 8 has renewed my faith and love in cinema.  Super 8 has made me remember why I have loved going to the movies since my first ever cinema experience (which, by the way, was ET). Thank you for that!

Thanks for not being lazy and for respecting your audience. Thanks for staying away from 3D. For realising that audiences aren’t fooled into thinking they are seeing a film with substance just because it’s made in  3D.

Thanks for showing other film makers that a 2D movie does work. It does work if that film has a heart and a great story, just like Super 8 does. Super 8 made me laugh, cry, and had me on the edge of my seat.

Thanks again for being the leaders in Hollywood by using the tried and tested, good old fashioned way, of just telling a story, and for using actors to tell it rather than rely on ‘stars’ to attract an audience.

Thanks for making going to the cinema a fun and magical place all over again!

Thanks for transporting me to a land of make believe where I believe the impossible is possible.

Now, That’s Entertainment!

About The Bellissimo Files

Hi, I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents! As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen! This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings. Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions. I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk) The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving. Files (topics) will be added or deleted as time goes on. Feel free to read, watch, comment, share, and make suggestions for what you would like to see on the site. Sarina
