Peter Travers says that while you shouldn't know too many plot details going into J.J. Abrams' scary new movie Super 8, you should know that it's a movie with a lot of sweetness and heart. The story, which follows the adventures of a group of kids making a homemade zombie movie in the Seventies, is a joyful celebration of innocence and imagination.
