When coming out of There will be blood, Sonny and I snuck into this one (no prize for guessing which was the better movie).

Exactly what I expected. Annoying shaky camera and a lot of loud noises to make up for the lack of thrill.
I'll admit some scenes did excite (the subway confrontation with the mini monsters and the stars scaling the remains of the building) but overall it was a dull, pointless piece of crap.

So you're stoked on the Cloverfield sequal right, FC? Anyways, hope you enjoyed TWBB-- if you want the soundtrack PM me.

Uhhh, you'll be second in line. Right after me, well, that's if I've gotten around to seeing the first Cloverfield by then.

We'll camp out. Maybe we can even share a tent or better yet, a sleeping bag.

parlor, pillow fights at the slumber parties, painting each others toenails, the Barry Manilow concert...oh so many great memories...!
Au Voir, Adios and Arivaderci... :'(

I think I'll pass on this one. I don't like much sci-fi/horror on the best of days, and the premise/style of this film seems like it would annoy the crap out of me. Sorry.

You don't like SF/horrors, you don't like spaghetti westerns, you don't lik porn... You basically don't like movies.

I'm so glad I didn't spend money on this one.  It was the perfect filler movie to get into when you have nothing else better to do for the moment. And I was seriously contemplating leaving about half way through, but then I thought, well for one, it's free, and the other good thing is that i won't ever have to see it again and when my friends (who were very eager to see it) rave about it as if it were actually good, I can smile at them and pretend to be interested, without them knowing I know the truth of its.... horribleness.

This was an awesome horror picture. Loved it. Thought it was great and everything was well done about it. Thought the monster was fabulous. Definitely a movie to see on a big screen. The shaky cam didn't bother me and you got to see some good shots of the creature. The last scene is supposed to reveal a clue about the origins of the monster whether it be from outer space or under the sea. A poster on another board made an interesting remark about this film--that it's essentially a love story at the core and a film about friendship. The character of Rob, realizing the danger, forges ahead to save the woman he loves when in all probability she is already dead. His friends try to stop him but he tells them to go on ahead that this is something he has to do. A small few of them reluctantly decide to join him. Good downer ending, too. I'm glad I spent money on it and will probably do so again. It's one of those 50/50 movies that splits people down the middle but most horror fans like it. Loved how the director teased you with brief snippets of the monster and its first reveal is all the better for it. Also dug how nothing is known about the monster and also it's hinted at that the military know something about the smaller monsters as they seem to carry some kind of biological bacteria that causes those bit by them to explode shortly after contamination. This is what that crap ass US GODZILLA should have been. Bring on the sequel.

In an age of lame, half-hearted, callous, egocentric remakes this was a breath of fresh air.

A coworker told me he saw an asteroid falling from the heavens in the background when the couple were on the Ferris Wheel at Coney Island.
We both came to the conclusion that the creature was an entity from across the stars that hitched a ride on a comet and crashlanded into the earth's ocean.

Then again, This coworker could have been blowing smoke up my ass.

That might be the closest thing to the truth.  I don't get why people read so much into these things, I mean who fucking cares where the monster came from? Use your imagination and be happy about it. It's just a movie.

It was the films director who said in an interview there was something in the last shot. I think it adds an extra layer of creativity when a director will add things to the movie which aren't immediately noticeable or will raise debate or questions about the film itself.

It's funny, in the internet age, to see how old hands of communication still stick to old tricks. Are they effective, I wonder?
I'm referring to the people who are in charge of the publicity for this movie (I know next to nothing about it). Today I read on a newspaper a little short article (just a few lines) on how this movie marks the beginning of a new kind of horror, so realistic that american spectators had to take bags to puke into while watching it. This is clearly all work of the press agents who got a link in the newspaper's desk. They probably didn't see the film, either. I wonder if these people realize how infos have started to circulate in the last 10-15 years. But, yes, they are probably  just defending their jobs.
