  • It really was a great movie to see in theatres...especially that first look you get at the monster tearing up the city...when they're watching the news in the electronics store. The overhead views of New York were awesome as well.

    Thanks BoneKrusher^

        I was extremely disappointed in that movie. It could of been a whole lot better imo.

It's not for everyone and the story is pretty hokie but, it works, imo. I know a lot of people that didn't like it, though. But again, there are certainly a lot more people that did enjoy it vs those that didnt.

            Rotten Tomatoes has it at 76% fresh (72% top critics)

            IMDB at a 7.5 rating.

            Cloverfield is destined to be considered a cult classic in due time.

            I'd love a sequel of sorts...it'd be interesting what Abrams could come up with and on a much, much larger budget.

            Without the amazing trailer and marketing of that movie nobody would remember or even think twice about Cloverfield, IMO but you have to give them credit for coming up with an original marketing plan for a movie like that. They pulled it off exceptionally well.

            • I think it was a mild disappointment considering how much I was into the whole viral marketing thing but, it was still good and I certainly like it. I agree it could have been better, though. The actual story itself was rather weak and pretty unbelievable. Granted, we're talking about a monster attacking the city here but, the things leading up to the end, not involving the monster were the things that were the most unbelievable.

              Examples in white below...


              1. Helicopter crash
              2. Beth with a freaking rod through her body, she's fine for the rest of the movie, though

              Also, that final shot of the monster...it wasn't necessary. They probably should have used that money on more shots of the monster running through the city earlier. The big unveiling shot wasnt really needed and kind of cheapens the whole deal because, it doesnt look as good and def. makes it feel more movie like. Basically what i'm saying is...for making a "realistic" monster or giant animal attack on the city movie, the story didnt really fit the bill...and this monster seemed to be following them everywhere.

              It was a good movie but, the potential was there to make it a lot better. I'm not so sure, I'd even want Goddard to write the sequel.

              Thanks BoneKrusher^

              • I just watched the trailer for "Gigantic", and I was excited for this movie before, but now im REALLY excited. Paul Dano is quickly proving himself as one of, if not the absolute best young actor in Hollywood. And Zooey Deschanel is one of my favorite actresses. This should be a great one, great supporting cast as well. Im super excited for it. Here is the trailer

                  It's been a while since I've seen it but I really disliked the characters. I didn't think they were interesting, funny, or just about anything that would make me like them. I had other problems with the movie but that's all I can really think of (haven't seen it since theaters). I also was disappointed in not learning wtf was going on and what the monster was but that I can understand. I really love the idea of the movie but just didn't do it for me.

                    Exactly how I felt. I was actually hoping they all die a horrible death, they were that annoying.

                      "OMGzzz it's a power rangers move!"

                      "No, it's the new Godzilla!"

                      "Paramount doesnt own the rights to Godzilla"

                      "Voltron!!!!!!"

                      Good times.
                      I was still just a lurker here when that was going on. I was actually hyped up for a Voltron movie at the time.

                        I'll watch any movie with Ian Roberts in it, the most underrated comedic actor out today, IMO. Love Zooey Deschanel too, why is it a Zooey never walks into my place of work and randomly asks if I have any interest in having sex with her??

                              They did a special on that true story for Discovery. I think it's what got the series "A Haunting" started.

                                I read somewhere recently that he is going to be the new regular cast member (although it doesn't show on IMDB?) on the upcoming seasons of Reno 911. His guest roles on that show were great, although I don't think he is playing the same character.

                                Should make a good show even better.
