I thought with only a few days until the release of this film that I would corner the market on the "official thread" for this film. I mean, I have the official thread now, so nobody can post in any other thread about cloverfield again!
Anyhoo, This movie is either going to be awesome or going to be terrible. I am leaning towards the terrible. I am one of those people who watched the first few eps of lost until I realised the writers had no idea what they were writing when they started the series and that was it for me.
Cloverfield is going to be a movie that refuses to reveal the monster till 3/4 of the way through, trying to build suspense whilst giving the audience a headache with an abundance of camera shake meant to portray the "right there" feel.
And then at the end the "Hero" will be trapped behind a glass door with an escape right next to him, yet he still sacrifices himself in order to win that Oscar. Oh, hang on, I just saw that moive.
