Yeah, but I think they are building it up so much that when it debuts its gonna fall way below expectations.:2cents:

I like the hand held video camera idea, also since in the previews you don't see the "monster", it forces you to use your imagination. I mean in order for something to be big enough and strong enough to hit the head off of the Statue of Liberty, it must be pretty damn big. So anyway, I plan to go see this one and I will share my feelings on the movie after I have seen it.

It may be alright. I think it could go either way

Looks like a potentially promising movie. When I seen the head of the statue of liberty go flying off in a trailer before the new one that shows a weird shadow I was guessing it had to be huge and was leaning torwards another version of the Godzilla =D

Godzilla vs. Mothra with 2008 special effects XD

My buddy told me what it is about "exactly." Its not Godzilla, sorray about that, I like him a lot too. My lil brother has all this stuff about him, movies, toys, collectables, etc. Anyway its a diffferent creature and ..................wait......I'm not giving it away:lol2:

I know its not godzilla now that I seen the second trailer that has a screen shot of something manish looking or whatever but a new Godzilla would be right on.

I think it looks like Godzilla (the 1995 or whatever release) PLUS Blair Witch Project with the handheld camera the whole way. I want to see it, BUT I'm thinking it may actually suck pretty bad.

I don't want to know what it looks like right now, my imagination is creating something very big, strong, and ugly as hell. Can't wait to go see this one.

Well, at least he didn't actually have to go to Japan to see any monsters :) The trailer doesn't appeal to me much though.. it leaves waaaay too much to the imagination for me to be hooked. Hell, puppets could drop out of helicoptors and it could end up being Team America 2.

Side note: Now I remember where I first saw this! Transformers!

Holy shit guys, this movie was the bomb! As far as films go, it is unprecidented. The blair witch project has nothing on this movie, definately the most innovative movie of 08! You are in the movie from the moment its starts, you make friends witht the characters as you go along with them. Check it out, scary as hell.

Are you serious? I thought the movie was absolute garbage. You don't learn anything about the monster, and you see it for four minutes total tops! I've only learned things about it from reading up on scenes that were left out of the film. The monster looked like it was brainstormed by a class of six year olds. I'm sorry, but all that hype was not worth it. The visuals and special effects, however, were A+.

JoeShmoe

Well the monster was crap, but I'm saying just the concept was awesome. The idea of just having on side of the story was IMO fucking sweet. I did not ask questions cause I knew there would not be answers.

As far as the acting, I thought that was poop also. But you have to agree that you feel like you're part of the party?

L-Spec
01-21-2008, 11:03 AM
Yeah i guess so. They did drag on the party a bit though, I was sitting there thinking: When the hell is this party going to end! Let's see the good stuff! I really did feel like I was there 90% of the movie though, which is pretty damn good. The sound effects and visuals definitely did their job. The acting was okay, I thought, especially since they weren't A-listers. The actor who played HUD was good though, even if most of his lines were pretty cheesey.

You got that right, its just a good bovie when it came to effects and audio. Anyone else going to see it?

saw it today! and it was AWESOME! i mean, the feeling of how it was filmed is really WAY better then any other movie i have ever seen! it was so intense! acting was "so so", the "monster" sucked! but all in all, well worth the gas/tickets/and sneeking in candy for wallgreens... i would actually consider seeing it again! all in all, i give it a 8.5 out of 10... but only because the monster sucked, and the acting was corney... other then that, it would be a ten!

So I just saw this movie tonight. I have mixed feelings about it. I thought it was visually appealing and the CGI was very well done considering the style it was filmed in. That style actually makes it so much harder to match up the CGI, but at the same time all the motion makes little details less noticeable... I have to admit, all the camera spinning and shit made me pretty sick at times and I got dizzy. The story was there, but they needed to build on it a little more than what they did. The ending about made me sick, I knew that's exactly what was gonna happen. They almost set it up for a possible sequel, but who knows...

All in all, it was a good low budget movie. It just needed some of the kinks worked out of it and a little more in depth story than what it was.

yea i agree with brian but I wanted to note at the end how I was dissapointed that the thing didn't get any closure. I guess they are setting up for a sequel but we will see.

That is what I was thinking too... I certainly hope that they do the next one better if they do a sequel.

Well I think it did a whole lot better than the Blair Witch Project.

Yeah? I actually liked BWP more, just because it kept me in suspense for most of the film. Cloverfield, on the other hand, was extremely predictable. I remember first watching BWP in my basement of my parent's house.. after seeing the ending, I could not sleep at all! It just seemed so real it was beliveable. If there were to be a sequal to Cloverfield, I'd wait for it to come on dvd/blueray before I saw it.

well i didn't go into the theatre with questions on my mind. I knew a lot of the stuff would be unanswered you i just didn't expect much at all. maybe thats why i thought it was good.

So true... I was able to guess nearly every "suspenseful" scene. :disappoin

The whole theater I was in tonight was silent when it ended. Sort of a "WTF" atmosphere. So I lightened the place up with a "Well I hope they're OK!"...I thought it was funny.
