I Saw Cloverfield

Reviews, thoughts, and theories on the movie hit Cloverfield, about a monster attacking New York City 348 People

    Yeah Twas a Good Watch

    Very cool. Don't read too much of this, I might hint at spoilers.   Did anyone else thing the monster was very video-gameish? Definitely a monster for the gaming generation. I wasn’t disappointed at the ending, my friend noted a better ending may have been right...

    HAAAAATTED this movie, & would rather eat glass shards than Ever see it again. I honestly feel that this movie was the worst of All Time.

    It Gave Me Motion Sickness

    I will never subject myself to anything that is done in that fashion again. By the end, I was so sick, that instead of going out to dinner with the rest of the group I came with, I went home and took a Gravol.

    That movie made me really nauseated..... LITERALLY. The camera was all over the place. Kinda like, when I was little, the swings made me sick, the merry go-round made me sick and I got carsick !!!!!

    At Least One and a Half Thumbs Up

    I saw it on midnight, opening night, with a bunch of friends. I went in expecting it to be not so good, but it actually was. It was fun, interesting, and pretty cool. I'm just not so big a fan of the whole shaky camera style, because it hurts my head... Haha

    I Loved It!

    I'm not a big fan of scary movies but I really liked this movie. The camera work didn't bother me. I don't get motion sickness very easily and I'm very thankful for that because I was able to really enjoy this movie. I think the camera work is what made it so cool and different...

    Cloverfeild: My Review

    I liked the way they made it as if some normal person was taping the whole thing, but I don't think it worked that A, you never actually get to see the monster properly (except from a few blurry seconds at the end and B, that you never get to see what happend. Was price restored...

    The Size Of The Screen Matters!

    The first time I watched this was on my zune. We're talkin a 3" or 4" screen. Since the whole movie was supposed to be a camcorder it was kind of like watching someones camcorder. You only get quick flashes of a monster and on a small screen you're thinkin, "What the hell was...

    Best Cam Movie

    It Was Ok

    The beginning seemed to drag on at first and the camera was so shaky that it made it hard to watch. But I have to admit that when things started happeneing I was a bit on the edge of my seat. The little creatures that attacked the people in the subway tunnel scared me.  The...

    Scary Movie... But Then, I'm Scared of Everything.

    I shouldn't have seen this movie. I knew as soon I saw the preview that it would be scary. I KNEW it. But this is what I do to myself - I scare myself silly. And not in a fun way. Movies like this do nothing for me except scare me to death. I have to be at work every morning at...

    Saw It, Nearly Blew Chunks

    Many years ago, when I saw 'The Blair Witch Project' I threw up after being sick for hours from the jumpy camera action throughout the movie.  Needless to say, when I saw 'Cloverfield' I had no idea that the same hand-held camera technique had been employed.  My EP...

    At the end, when Beth and Rob are on Coney Island, did anybody else see something drop in the water behind them and cause a splash? I swear, it was something round and black. I think it might have been the creature thingy. Look for it, if you're going to see the movie!

    What a Bore

    A snooze-fest. The movie is dull and uninspired. I admit that I haven't seen it whole. I gave up after half an hour of watching some guy's party video. The acting was especially bad although that might have been on purpose to go with the mockumentary style. And wtf kinda name...

    I Saw It

    I saw it many times, I even own it on DVD. But for the life of me, I can't see that thing that drops into the water at the end. I knew about it even before I saw the movie and I still can't find it.  It's driving me a bit nuts.

    When I first started seeing adverts for it on TV, I was like, "I wanna go to that!" My mom thought it was gonna suck. But I was suuuper excited. So I looked up some reviews, and it was weird. It seemed everyone either loved it or hated it... or threw up from it...

    Wasn't the best; wasn't the worst. It would have been nice if they had more money in their budget to film it a bit better... Waited the whole movie to get a decent view (too jumpy).

    Not the Best

    can't say that I really cared for this movie. I really don't like that style of video. The storyline at first was rather lame. I guess I really didn't like it.
