I personally liked it and thought it was at good, though I agree it could have been a lot better and that a lot of the shit that happened didn't make any sense, it was just really messily put together, which is a shame because I think the story that was there was really intriguing and could have been really amazing had they told it better.
There are some theories that some people have been speculating on reddit that I think maybe make the film a bit more understandable, such as someone pointed out maybe that that one dude who lost control of one of his eyes and started talking to himself in the mirror perhaps collided with his other version in the different dimension then made a gun and threatened Schmidt? Because in the 2nd dimension Schmdit was a traitor, so how would that dude all of a sudden know that? Only the different dimension version would know that, but yet all of a sudden the first dimension person knew that too.
Then why was the dude's arm sucked into the wall all of a sudden and ripped off and then apparently sentient and able to write? Why was there a girl in the wall of the spaceship all of a sudden? Why were the worms and that power thingy in that guy's body all of a sudden? So much shit that didn't even seem to have an explanation.
But yeah it seems like the story now for Cloverfield, or what they wanted it to be based on this, is now there are different dimensions that are getting fucked up shit happening into them due to this. In one dimension the Cloverfield monster attacks, in the 10 Cloverfield Lane dimension aliens invade, etc.
I'm guessing the Overlord movie, which is supposed to be the 4th cloverfield movie, is probably going to be its own dimension too. Basically they now have an unlimited way of having anything happen in any situation and having it just be 'oh but it's a different dimention so'.
