J.J. Abrams cannot go wrong in my mind. He had his hands on television series and movies such as LOST, Star Trek, and Cloverfield. What is amazing is these are a few of my favorites. To make things even better, J.J. mentioned my hometown area in the movie! As an ode to the Great Lakes state of Michigan, he put in a few lines to honor where I am from:
"What am I supposed to do, go to Michigan with you," the boy yells.
"Mackinac Island is beautiful this time of year!" the girl responds.
My sister and I quickly snapped our heads to look at each other in disbelief. The best part is you get to hear the same lines three times throughout the movie! I love-love-love the shout out.
