    For everyone excited for Cloverfield...

    Early reviews from test screenings are starting to hit the internet. I'm sure all of you movie buffs have been checking out the absolutely ridiculous youtube videos explaining how they "think" they've solved the monster mystery. Some claim Godzilla, some claim it's Godzilla's son ZILLA, some say its Cthulhu, and fools have even gone as far as to say it's a giant lion. Yes people, there's actually assumptions saying its a friggin' lion. There is also this fan-made piece of art floating around the net showing a giant whale-like creature witht a crab monster next to it. Umm..first of all the whale creature is from Final Fantasy...secondly, THE CLOVERFIELD MONSTER IS NOT A SILLY WHALE. Sit back and say to yourself a giant lion is attacking NYC and tell me how many times you laugh. JJ Abrams stated at the 2007 Comic Con that ITS NOT GODZILLA. He said America needs her own monster. Something terrifying. So I wish people would quit making videos analyzing stupid stuff like how they THINK they see the monster's face in the explosions. Get real. So, based upon early reviews pouring in...I can assure you this monster is absolutely BADASS. I won't spoil anything for you but I can say this...the thing looks possessed, it's got teeth like machetes, and it rubs it's self against skyscrapers to make smaller parasite monsters fall off it's body and attack people...(hence the crab-like creatures attacking people in the trailer). If you hated Blair Witch because of the shaky camera style...then you'll definitely puke during this one. There is absolutely no musical score to it either. This is the first monster movie in a long time that has the potential to truly captivate audiences. Kind of like the feeling back in 1993 when Jurassic Park came out. That movie rocked and amazed millions including me. Before Jurassic Park we still used stop-motion animation. We never saw anything that damn smooth! So, prepare yourselves for what looks to be an amazing monster movie!

    Why? When that's exacty the reaction from the fans that Abrams expects from his viral marketting techniques. If you're having a hard time dealing with what you see as ridiculous fan made videos, blame Abrams and his marketting campaigns. Not the fans.


    Whatever the case, I hope this movie lives up to all the hype

    I'm not aware of anybody talking about this movie other than the astroturf. Are you talking about youtube astroturf? Would that be videoturf? Astrotube?

    I'm sorry, but if you are astroturfing the hell out of _4chan_ you're in serious trouble. Let it die. It's like snakes on a plane without being amusing- testament to how much effort people are willing to go to, to lie and pretend and yell about the fake buzz.

    the movie looks promising, i got a lot of interest from the trailer.I hope it really lives up to the expectations.

    As for the lame images and stuff, nevermind, let them think whatever they want, is only good for marketing, the movie is coming out and everyone will go see how the monster really looks, then it will be over. They are doing the same lame crap with the dragonball movie, is the internetz dude.

    It's amazing. Of all subjects, movies and politics hit a certain nerve with people. You got your arrogant, gullible, and passive aggressive. Let's see what else this thread can produce

    All the hype in the world will not make me watch this or any other upcoming movie in the cinemas this year. I'll wait for my chance to be disappointed in the comfort of my own home a few months after the theatrical release with a reasonably priced glass of soda and a bucket of popcorn, having rented the film for half the price of the movie ticket. The box office won't suffer much because of this, but I'll definitely be just a little bit happier

    What could have possibly disappointed you about 2007, this year was incredible for movies.

    Perhaps you and I were watching different movies in 2007. Something tells me mentioning titles will derail this topic.

    Ceberae is probably one of those people that got all excited for Pathfinder.

    I guess if you went to see nothing but block buster summer movies this year was disappointing but if you went to see any of the good releases then I don't really see where you're coming from.

    I had to look that one up. Man, who comes up with those story premises?

    Good is a matter of taste in this case then. Anything to look forward to in 2008?

    Indy tops my list so far. And if it wasn't for Indy it would be Hellboy II. And then there's Iron Man. Actually 2008 looks to be a kick ass year so far. Unless, of course, what we get SUCKS. Which is always a possiblity in Hollyweird

    Ceberae I hear ya. The sad thing is the art for pathfinder is awesome. Too bad the quality of movie didn't match it. Same thing goes with the first AVP. Fantastic art....HORRIBLE movie. Paul Anderson should never adapt ANYTHING into a movie. He was much better with Event Horizon and Soldier

    hype usualy breeds disappointment ......

    co creator-producer
    JJ Abrahams Armageddon (1998), writer ?

    Mission: Impossible III (2006), director and co-writer ?

    Alias (2001-2006), creator, writer, executive producer, director ?

    directed by
    Matt Reeves "Felicity" (64 episodes, 1998-2002)

    written by
    Drew Goddard. "buffy the vampire slayer" ?

    these resume points dont inspire confidence in the area of 'ground breaking originality"
    these are very bad ingredients.....

    not my dream team exactly

    low expectations are in order

    kingshaj you have a good point. But you have to admit, if these guys were given the right project for them to work on, then it could be a completely different story. Michael Bay was flat out HORRIBLE with Pearl Harbor. Yet, The Rock and Transformers were muuuuuuuch better. Roland Emerich was a crapload better with Stargate and ID than Godzilla. He just needs to cut loose of Dean Devlin and he'll be fine.

    There is also this fan-made piece of art floating around the net showing a giant whale-like creature witht a crab monster next to it. Umm..first of all the whale creature is from Final Fantasy...secondly, THE CLOVERFIELD MONSTER IS NOT A SILLY WHALE.
    Sigh....

    So the whale thing was drawn in a couple of hours for a contest where you could win a t-shirt. I wanted a new t-shirt. I'm a sucker for t-shirts. The contest went to shit and I didn't get my free t-shirt. Fuck.

    I was going for silly/potential cool with the whale. I wanted a 'man in suit' vibe, like an old school Godzilla flick. When looking for whale reference I came across the whole whale louse thing (that humbacks have) and thought that could be cool (like the lil' beasties in Godzilla vs Destroyah).
    I have never played Final Fantasy X and did not know what Sin was. Since then I've looked. It's a cool beastie, but I still don't see much resemblance. For anyone who is curious of what images I'm talking about they're here:
