Just got back. In short, it's extremely cool, and surprisingly engaging. The characters were just well-drawn enough to care for them, and parts of the film were pretty sad. There was a great amount of humour throughout, and the monsters...well, the monsters are ridiculously freaky.

Yeah it was a shit movie.

Shit parts:
- Stupid shakey cam
- Stupid monster movie one liners
- Stupid Pokemon monster
- Stupid me for falling for Snakes on a Plane's marketing successor

Great parts:
- Indie rock looking girl
- Indie rock looking girl exploding inside tent
- CGI work






























SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS

I have to say, the only way to see this movie is in the theatre. It's a classic monster movie in all the spirit of classic monster movies. Horrible acting, horrible one-liners, short run time, but great monster, hilarious dialogue, and it's ALL about audience participation.

The audible groans, and random laughter from random rows spreading to the entire audience were great. It was all about the group experience with the rest of the audience, for me.

Well, I pretty much disagree with you entirely. Aside from the CGI being good, which it was.

Oh, another spoiler in inviso-text:

Those fucking crab things were completely awesome... and they made the one girl explode. Points for that, man.

I really, really enjoyed this movie. Not a re-invention of the genre, but a clever genre-blend, and maybe the first real great monster movie in years.

That being said, it's not about the singular hero taking on the monster to save the world from destruction, but the real people trying to just survive. The audience is a character in the film, too, knowing only as much as the main characters know, keeping the focus on them and not the monster itself.

I can't believe I have more to say about this than Apocalypse Now, but it was a great theater movie and a fun way to spend an afternoon.

Exactly. I think it would suck on DVD, but overall I enjoyed seeing it with an audience for the groans, giggles that spread throughout the rows after silly seriously-delivered lines, and the cheers and applause a third of the audience broke into during the Star Trek trailer.

I enjoyed it as a monster flick, but the scenes of mass hysteria and helplessness? The War of the Worlds remake captured it much better, to be honest. This felt silly to me, and I enjoyed that it was silly.

You're definitely right. I was the only person in the theater cheering during the Trek trailer... it was a little embarrassing, but people suck anyway.

War of the Worlds did capture that better, but I prefer this movie to that one.

2 things:

Did anyone stay during the credits to hear "ROAR! (The Cloverfield Overture)"? It was friggin' awesome. And also, I wonder what it would be like to watch this movie on an actual camcorder... has anyone else thought of that?

Yeah I stayed during the credits - great music with a lot of classic monster movie cues.

The extra bit of audio at the end of the credits wasn't worth staying for....

Reading some of the forums dedicated to this movie is crazzzzy....it's like the obsessive compulsive Lost people moved onto this. You can bet this property will be handed off to another production team to pump out a sequel or two.

Yeah, I just stayed to hear the score and was surprised to hear the audio. What was it exactly?

Here's another spoiler:

In the last shot with Rob and Beth at Coney Island, you can see something fall into the ocean from a weird angle. I didn't notice it, but my friend did.

And if there is a sequel... I'll be pissed.
