This Film Should Have Been...

...seen on the Big Screen at the local theater!

The hand held camcorder filming of the entire movie just isn't meant to be viewed on a tv screen, no matter how big the tv screen is.

We heard too many dissapointed film goers not like the film, which is why we didn't go, even after Tina saw JJ Abrams preview the film at the San Diego Comic Con.

This would normally not be her type of movie to go out to watch, so we waited for the DVD...

Tina and I are fans of JJ Abrams works, (Lost, Alias, etc.), but this one just didn't do for it us. But then again, we're not twenty-somethings like the main characters are in the film...

I don't know what to really rate this film on DVD. Especially after viewing the DVD bonus features and finding out that the monster was really a baby!

Nowhere in the film was that ever alluded to!!!

Sheesh!

Cloverfield

This was basically The Blair Witch with Aliens and a lot of special effects. Premise of the movie was decent but the way it was filmed was just a disaster. It's no wonder so many people got sick watching it. Keep the home movie type camera shots where they belong, for peoples home movies.

not your traditional movie

if you're thinking this is a traditional monster movie, it is not. The photography aspect was a head ache to say the least. There should be a new category that uses this kind of photography. There's alot of shaking camera and next gen rhetoric. There's no plot, and no conclusion.

Its like getting my teeth cleaned

This movie is SO boring. Nothing really happens for the first 10 minutes plus or minus. The acting is something you would expect from a low budget movie. Its a bunch of 20 year olds that have ZERO personality. Suspense? Where? This movie is a waste of film. I am 20 minutes into the movie plus or minus and am debating turning it off. Not entertaining. Would NOT buy this movie! Save your money for a better movie.

Worst waste of money POS movie...

Sucks; Blair Witch stylistics on the camera, MAJOR headache to watch. Not even much of a plot, absolutely no resolution to the story. Future shiny coaster.

bought this movie because it was an horror/thriller but was very disappointed in it. The camera that the film was made with was just to shakey and the ending was very very disapointing would not recommend

Cloverfield - Stay Away!

I had heard that this was a pretty good horror or sci-fi movie. I was totally disappointed. It was boring and confusing...really poorly edited. If you must see it, rent it first.

Cloverfield

the story line is good, but the film is so dark and jerky that you can't see what's happening most of the time. Most of the time all you can see is darkness and shadows. Very frustrating.
