Super 8DVD - 2011
From the critics
Coarse Language: This film is meant to feel like a 1980's movie, and they accomplish that partly through the amount of language uttered by young characters. If you're sensitive to language, "Super 8" is not for you.
Violence: "Super 8" is a thriller, which naturally entails a good dose of violence. Perhaps the "worst" section is when a character ends up in an accident that leaves his face dripping in blood.
Frightening or Intense Scenes: Like all good suspenseful thrillers, the audience is left wondering "what" the creature is, and where it will strike next. People disappear (usually) screaming into the darkness.
Sexual Content: Part of the language includes crude references to sexual organs.
Frightening or Intense Scenes: humans being consumed, persons being crushed, meat locker effect
Coarse Language: One F word and many S words. it's a PG-13 film though, but nothing over the top for a PG-13 movie.
Other: Why is this category even here? What could possibly be in here that doesn't fit into the above groups? Really extreme violence? Absurd language? Obscene sexual content? I mean really, what's up with this 'Other' category, it's kinda out of place?
Violence: Trains blow up, houses blow up, cars are smashed, and property is damaged. Not to a Micheal Bay level, but still a good amount.
