    Cloverfield

    Im not going to give anything away for those that havnt seen it yet (not that it would ruin an already ruined movie) just going to say that I was truly upset and would rate it at one of the worse movies Ive ever seen just one big giant piece of ****! Yeah, I hated it that much and believe it or not I'm kinda easy to please when it comes to movies! but this "Cloverfield" movie was a waste of money, time, and sleep! (for me) only a few people walked out of the theater without asking for thier money back, jokingly but with that look of "NO, I'm serious! I want my ****ing money back!" look on thier faces. What a let down on the up side (kinda) we were given a quick glimpse of the new Star Trek movie, then the directors name popped up....you got it, the same POS that directed Cloverfield!
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    "more clowns on more bikes, more of the time"

    "there's no such thing as strong coffee, only weak people"

    I know lots of people who loved that movie, I am one of them. I love satirical movies, especially when characters make fun of themselves.

    Cloverfield only looked good because for the first time in recent memory, the entire plot wasn't given away in the commercial. I would still only rent it though.

    I loved "Snakes on a Plane", as I don't do the cinema much I wait for Cloverfield on Netflix.

    You wouldn't watch 'Snakes on a Plane' again, or not watch 'Cloverfield' again?

    I took a look at some of the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. It looks like a video rental--DVD or Unbox--at most, as far as I'm concerned. Hell, I got queasy during Blair Witch Project, so it'd probably be best if I can hit the pause button for a little while anyway.

    I enjoyed Snakes on a Plane, but I don't think I've heard of this one. If it's another SOAP, it might be worth a rent someday.

    From the commercial and the trailers, I made up my mind that the unseen monster could be my BFF if he would kill the central cast of idiots in the most painful way possible.

    I really want to see it.... in the theater. Reason? Seems like even if a bad movie, it would have special effects, sound, and a general "large" feeling which would be lost as a rental.
    There are some movies that are just better at the theater.

    Is that a good enough reason to see it? My girl HATES scary movies, so I'd have to trick/drag her to it.

    Oh yeah, and I almost ALWAYS prefer movies which i have seen NO trailers for. I prefer my friends take me to movies which I've never heard of.

    Are you from Australia? The reason I aks is I frequent a motorcycle board and a member of that board (from Australia) wrote darn near the same review as above. Too bad, the commercials had me excited, but this is three reviews I've read now that basically state that the movie is a steaming pile o crap.

    thanks for the info. I HATED Blair Witch project. First person movies blow. Herky jerky "artistic" movies blow harder..and not in the good way.

    I still really want to see this ... I am a huge Lost fan and so the fact that JJ Abrams is producing it makes me want to watch it. I'll be disappointed if it sucks.
