Seriously, WotW doesn't do ANYTHING better than Cloverfield. WotW does just about everything horrifyingly wrong actually, and my hate for that film grows daily. Really, now I think the only good scene in that film is the first attack scene, and even that has its problems. Not saying Cloverfield is a masterpiece or anything, but I'd almost rather watch 2 hours of 2Girls1Cup than WotW again.

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

yes

the Trek preview looked good

Cloverfield is a piss poor movie

someone mentioned watching it on a camcorder screen

well, that would still be 2 inches of wasted space


War of the Worlds was a good movie
certainly entertaining, don't forget the screne with the ferry or the farm house scene,

The farm-house scene was absolutely terrible.

My favorite War of the Worlds scene:

"Dad, I have to go over that exploding hill!"
"Son, don't go! Little Dakota, stay here by this tree."
"But dad, I gotta go fight the indestructable aliens!"
"Son, don't go!"
"But dad, I'll see you in Boston anyway!"
"Okay, bye!"

The Ferry scene was horrible as well. Most scenes were. David Keopp should be shot.

That film has amazing sound design and CGI, but other than that,

Actually, I thought the farm scene with Tim Robbins was great. Unfortunately it was stuck in the middle of a shitty film.

Morgan Freeman as the fucking narrator? Can you get any more cliche?

And the ending is inexcusable.

Garbage, garbage, garbage. George Lucas couldn't make a film that bad if he tried.

I thought WotW captured the initial attack much better, and the mass hysteria and sense of hopelessness in the face of the alien attacker. The monster attack seemed a bit like a Pokemon live action movie initially in Cloverfield.

That said, the spider monkey shit was the shit. Shit, that made the movie man.

Honestly, the dept store triage exploding girl scene made the movie for me.

She was my indie rock girl crush for like 50% of Cloverfield....so like for 20 mins.... Did the biohazard folks in the tent appear to pop her? Or did she go by herself?



Also, the camera guy looked a hell of a lot like Tony Stewart for some reason

I have a friend that looks a lot like Marlena... but she is a lesbian. I digress.

I really wish that I could have watched the whole movie without looking away or closing my eyes but...

my God I got so dizzy and nauseous. I guess we shouldn't have sat so close but it really really sucked for me. I probably missed about a good half hour of the film.
I still liked what I saw, though. It got and held my interest after the first attack. Then again, I love, love, apocalyptic films like this.
