Forums - Movies Discussion - That new Cloverfield movie was sooo bad [Spoiler thread]

That is too bad. The last one with John Goodman was good and creepy.

Well, I'm glad that I only watched 10 Cloverfield Lane. Though I wonder how people couldn't see the red flags when the trailer was out already.

It never mattered if it was good, trash or meh, Netflix stun marketing did it's job to lure people in quite well.

I actually enjoyed it and think that its the best of the 3 movies so far.



I thought it was fantastic, I'm not sure how people don't understand what was going on, they done everything to explain the plot barring getting out a powerpoint presentation and actually going through it in bullet points.

The thing which I think gets to people is that Cloverfield movies... aren't like the other films, it's not like Terminator films... where you have the same small plot in the world, but it would be like if the second Terminator film existed on the same planet where a Robot was coming back to try to kill John Connor, but it focused on something completely separate from it but still in the same world which was under threat from a AI from the future trying to protect itself by striking back at the past.

I find them very fresh because rather than focus and lock on a small cast of main characters and tiny area you get to see that Cloverfield and the Cloverfield Paradox has impacted the entire world, not just a handful of characters banded together by the events of the movie.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

10 Cloverfield Lane is way better than Cloverfield



Anyway, Paradox Cloverfield tell us that Shepard experiment fucked up all realities and that's why there is a monster in the first one (it was send to ocean before WW2), aliens invaded Earth in second one and a full grown Clover went to that reality after they turn on Shepard in space.

While there is some answers, the movie still is bad written and they left some plot holes (not with the Clover story though).

Glad somebody agrees with me there.

I was disappointing as well. It had a forgettable cast that I literally didn't care about any of them. So much random shit in the movie I didn't understand. I'm all for movies that make you think and don't give you direct answers, but this was messy. I cared more about the guy on Earth than anyone else.



The first was good but way WAY too shaky, I know they wanted to give the feel that it's some amateur shooting the video during the whole movie but still it was almost sickeningly too shaky...
The second movie I don't know as I haven't seen it yet, from what I heard it's about some guy kidnapping other people or something? Which I don't mind if that was the main theme of the movie but Cloverfield is about huge monsters so Cloverfield 2 makes as much sense as say, a Superman movie where the issue is politics and Superman is not really part of the story. I don't mind a movie on politics but if the title of the movie is Superman I wanna see Superman and not some political movie.

Now the third movie is there so yeah I'll check it out maybe but I won't keep high expectations I guess.

Watch it. It is about huge monsters

I like it but a lot of stuff made zero sense, like the ship turning evil on that 1 guy, also what's up with the Chinese pandering going on in movies now it's getting annoying



Bet reminder: I bet with Tboned51 that Splatoon won't reach the 1 million shipped mark by the end of 2015. I win if he loses and I lose if I lost.

My guess is, at one time, the movie was supposed to be a theatrical release, so they try to maximize the international box office by appealing to China which is the biggest foreign market for Hollywood movies. That's why more blockbusters have been trying to shoehorn in Chinese actors and some big US movies are co-produced by Chinese companies themselves.
