I vote a definite no. At least not rushing out and seeing it straight away. When 150% of the films hype is simply about the films hype, then all I can think of is the following: ID4.

I'm seeing with my friends on Friday, so even if it sucks, we can have a good time anyway.

My answer, btw:

The reviews say it sucks? On which planet is this occurring?

Now it's 71%! That's good enough for me. I've managed to avoid any spoilers and don't know anything other than what's in the trailers. I'm definitely going to see it this weekend.

As for you, Mr. Mike - are you going to let internet people sway your opinions? Do you want to see it? Then see it! Internet people are jaded and snooty - if something doesn't live up to intense hype, it's just not good enough. And sometimes they put shit down because it makes them look cool.

(I suppose you could say the same thing about movie critics, but I tend to give them a little more credit than random goofballs on the internet.)

To hell with them. See it if you want.

Why has this movie been hyped up so much?

It's had a very clever marketing/publicity campaign.

4 people from my work saw it last night (seperately): Three gave it 0 stars, 1 gave it half a star because it has a Black Keys song in it.

I just got back from a midnight showing. I thought the movie was very entertaining. Cloverfield is the kind of movie that can only be enjoyed in the movie theatre. I'd give it a 7 out of 10.
