In the closeup of the metal cube vibrating on the table in Joe's bedroom (26:48-26:54), the cube has a different design and finish than it does in any other shot. When Joe originally picks up that cube (at around 9 mins) and when he holds it while taking a bath (at around 29 mins), its sides are nearly flat. The vibrating design cube is also shown at 57:32 as Alice climbs into Joe's room and again when it vibrates a second time from 1:01:29 to 1:01:54. However, we know that the cubes initially morphed from being the hull of the spacecraft, and therefore can be certain of little about their shape-changing capabilities. See more »

It is nostalgia ridden like many other films have been this past decade, the only difference is it's not of the cynical kind.
The film's narrative FELT all over the place (probably more the plot than the narrative) - there was a certain tightness missing from this that was present in J.J. Abrams' previous film but, other than that, everything else did exactly what it's supposed to. The kids are both engaging and entertaining, the monster turns out to be quite frightening, the dialogue's great, the acting's great, visual effects, cinematography- everything's on point.
It felt like I was watching a proper film! I mean it seems too much to ask for from our blockbusters these days.
