4.0 out of 5 stars Cloverfield won me over yet I see why people despise this September 8, 2008
Format:DVD
Now that all the hype has die down I was able to give this film an objective look. I have to admit I was impressed. This movie throws out the music, set-ups, and cheap scares out the window - in a good way. Nothing in this movie tells you you're watching a movie of course. You're completely disorientated from start to finish, completely uncomfortable and on edge. And that is a hell of an achievement in today's de-sensitized movie environment. While I didn't jump once, I did find myself clutching the chair arms at various points.

I see why viewers would fine this derivative but every monster movie cliché is in there, and so it should be. The monster destroys landmarks. The military fight the monster. News reports advancing the plot. But it's delivered with such style and such punch that you can't help but be awed. You're seeing these events on an ant's eye level. There are no sweeping special effects shots of the White House being demolished by aliens, no aerial shots of buildings being destroyed - instead we get distant, unidentifiable bangs, fires obscured by the cityscape, an enormous leg moving behind a skyscraper - and a distant object which comes hurtling through the air, finally landing amidst chaos in a street, revealing itself to be the head of the statue of liberty.

This personal touch goes deeper - characters disappear from the story, and we (the audience) don't know their fate because the main characters don't. To be honest, I don't know whether I love this or like it but I was impressed. The subway scene was probably the best bit for me, and the ending slightly disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Uninvolving? Really? June 23, 2008
Format:DVD
I take issue with the claim in the review that this was an uninvolving movie. I don't think that's the case--if you watch the movie more than once. I would consider the first viewing to be NUMBING. I choose this word carefully. The filmmakers are consciously referencing 9/11, and viewed through that lens, I found the plot to be representative of the human need to come to grips with that horrible event--the rescue narrative, which can be easily dismissed as romantic drivel, to me reads as the poetic expression of the human need to say the things that tragedy prevented us from saying.

The complaints about the way the film is shot--with the handy cam--are valid and fair. I was not bothered by them.

Finally, I will say this for the film. Yes, when I saw it in theaters, it felt uninvolving. However, it was also haunting. There was something about it that I felt compelled to come back to. I have now seen it three times. The more I see it, the more I see INTO it. I think seeing this movie once and dismissing it is a mistake.

Format:DVD
The handheld camera.. or at leased they make it feel like one(theres good picture quality, but it still feels like a homemovie).. in my opinion it puts the viewer right there with the characters in the movie. there are very few examples for this subgenre, if thats what you want to call it. Blair Witch Project and Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon come to mind.

this style of filming has been one of the best ideas in horror, because there are no other styles that make the terror and action feel so real. there were multiple times i got chills down my neck from this movie. its just.. intense.

but.. without the camerawork, it is little more than another monster movie, which isnt a bad thing. it would still be leagues above most in the genre.

it takes a little time to get to know the characters in the opening scenes. i found most of the characters very believable and engaging. i actually cared about their everyday lives, and past together.(the first time in a while a was fearing for characters lives. i usually like the "villains") it turns out one of our main characters is leaving to live in china or something for a while, and theres a surprise going away party for him. nows about the time to buckle your seatbelt..

simply put, this movie blew me away. the camera style locks you in for the ride, and wont let go till its over. my heart was racing throughout 90% of the movie. you really are right there with them, dealing with the situation in front of you.. it could be the wildest ride you ever have on the couch.

3.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly... pretty good.... June 29, 2008
Format:DVD
I just watched this the other night, and..... it was actually pretty good.
It reminded me of a nightmare I used to have as a kid--- your classic "what if a monster came and started ripping up the city" sorta dream. It's kind of like the director put a face on an earthquake, or a tidal wave, or a terrorist attack. There was some good detail to the havoc, and when you could'nt catch a glimpse of the creature, it was like it was some kind of natural disaster--- buildings falling, people running, death, destruction, madness, and mayhem. And then we're reminded of the creature.... I would say if you haven't seen this, give it a try-- it's worth a 3 dollar rental...

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty people with problems--big, big problems. April 29, 2008
Format:DVD
"Cloverfield" is something of a novelty film: it doesn't really have much to add to the horror genre, but should definitely be watched nonetheless. According to the "making-of" documentary, the filmmakers were wanting to create an "American Godzilla." Well, they didn't. But what they DID do is create a film that is certainly a worthwhile watch, that does have something to say, even if it doesn't quite reach the expectations the filmmakers set out for.

The movie starts out at a goodbye party. A young man (names are inconsequential, we'll get to that in a moment) is heading to Japan (they didn't make their homages very subtle, did they?). A friend-who-is-more-than-a-friend shows up at his party (with another guy), then promptly leaves. While our main character is mourning, something happens. The earth shakes. They race to the top of their building. There's an explosion. They race down to the street. The head of the Statue of Liberty rolls by. They race to the Brooklyn Bridge. They race...

They race around. Except for an interesting sequence where they're stuck on a subway platform. But basically, they're racing. Which is good--because, if these characters stuck around anywhere for long, we wouldn't give a rat's petoot what happened to them. The acting wasn't all that bad, really--it's just, the characters weren't likeable. The movie started out like a soap opera, but that is a bit of a necessity--it MUST start out mundane, for us to realize the significance of what is going on. If only the characters were interesting...

Nevermind. The star here is the monster. And the cinematography. I've seen complaints that the camera work is too jerky; well, no kidding.

I liked Cloverfield when I saw it on the big screen. The Blu-ray is a great substitute and I enjoyed it again. One has to enjoy monster films to enjoy Cloverfield. I do.

Same for me too, man - with the Philips BD-P9000 (same unit as the Sammy 1000). I've tried with both Philips and Sammy firmware.

Alternate endings....
I don't know why people think that the ending is "bad". The fact that the characters are pathetic little peons in the grand scheme of things who don't understand what's happening is what makes it great! There are literally a hundred other monster movies where you get to see the typical... Read more
