Over at The Daily Beast, you can read my latest feature, entitled "Super 8: Stop Being So Secretive, J.J.," in which I offer a memo to Abrams and discuss why the director needs to move on.
And, just in case you haven't yet seen Super 8, I'll offer up the following caveat. WARNING: Contains spoilers!
