CLOVERFIELD has been seen! By Actually One More Fella!

Hey folks, Harry here - got the following brief review of CLOVERFIELD...

Just saw CLOVERFIELD in a small screening in NYC. IT WAS AWESOME!

I know - you want to know more. Join the fucking club! You also doubt the validity of the claim. Well, I checked with folks to see if it had indeed screened. It was at a Viacom in-house screening with unfinished visual fx. Add to this - a quote that Moriarty heard one day whilst walking the picket lines from a famous type that had seen the film, but was not associated with it, that felt they had just made "STAR WARS". Now - personally - that's crazy Hyperbole... isn't it? The film's budget is too small for it to be that amazing... right? But... what if? What if there's a payoff behind the mystery and the buzz. What if we're a month and a half away from a film that we'll all remember the promotion for - and remember when nobody knew what it was called... when the world was thinking H.P. Lovecraft and Voltron... and something called SLUSHO? What if, we're on magic time - getting ready for something... wonderful.... What if?

Here's two additional reviews we've received: -- The first of these two came from the alleged MARINE - the following reviewer wrote me back with a very detailed (regarding the screening, location, how he got in, etc... piece - but here's what he had to say about the review that I've removed...

hey harry saw you put my review up, so i'm glad it didn't go to waste! that said, i wanted to let you know, that 2nd review, from the former marine or whatever, is 100% bogus. as incoherent as it is written, from what i was able to decipher, he definitely gets a lot of things wrong. most importantly, the protaganists are definitely not strangers, and the reason for the group moving in the direction they do once the attack is underway is explicitly stated by the leader of the group. be well

and this:

hey harry longtime reader, first time writer. i was at one of the Cloverfield screenings in NYC, and while the EFX and music weren't finished, i don't think the movie was that far off from being complete. anyway, i am a big Lost fan so JJ Abrams' involvement, coupled with the amazing viral marketing campaign they have used to promote the film, had me really fired up about seeing the film. just wanted to preface with that before sharing my thoughts, which i will keep as spoiler free as possible: regarding the monster: i don't know how much i want to give away b/c i think people are having a really good time hypothesizing about what the monster is, so let me just say that it's humongous, it's ugly, and you do see it in full view - no blair witch kind of thing going on here. SPOILER TAG i can also confirm the presence of smaller monsters (which look like the uglies from starship troopers kind of) / END SPOILER [put that in black on the website if you can] regarding the story: again, don't want to give much plot away, but there is a little of a backstory initially, but it doesn't take too long to get to the party scene from the trailer, and once the statue of liberty head comes rolling down laffeyette street [i think?], the movie is off and running, with NYC devolving into chaos as people avoid being caught in the path of whatever is destroying their city regarding the movie itself: the scares are of the "gotcha!" variety, but that is to be expected given the use of the handheld camera, which, by the way, is your POV the entire film, so those with easy motion sickness be forewarned. there are some pretty funny one liners delivered by our cameraman to offset some of the tension with levity. there are certain plot devices which require a large suspension of disbelief (esp in regards to cell phone usage), but then again, if i'm going to buy in to the fact that a giant monster is ransacking my hometown, who am i to draw any line? overall i thought it was solid, definitely not great, and certainly not a genre redefinition. then again, my expectations were very high going in, so i might not be the best person to ask. my major critiques were: 1) it was somewhat predictable, and, as i stated before, the scares in the movie are less of the "creeping dread" variety and more of the "gotcha!" type. 2) again, i don't want to end the hypothesizing fun, but the monster isn't given much of a backstory or explanation. it just starts tearing NYC a new one one night. that's all i got. no need to credit me on this one, just wanted to get a review out there that doesn't have everyone shouting PLANT!!1!"

    by fight this generation

    then why the hell is it being released in January? Why all the viral, playing coy with filmgoers marketing? I've got no hopes for this one, but with the dearth of any decent releases in Jan/Feb, I'll still see it. Maybe, just maybe, it'll surprise me.

    Starwars reinvented Science Fiction movies

    by TheNorthlander a time when Blockbuster was a new concept.<br> <br> This is just a monster movie.<br> Made in a time when 20 movies a year competes to be Blockbuster of the year.<br> <br> There will not be a new "Star Wars" until a few decades after the studios stop making Blockbusters.

    That was a review?

    by Pawprint

    Jesus christ - that makes me one of the world's most eloquent and insightful reviewers EVER!<p> The original Star Wars was a phenomenon of it's time; it was mysterious and unknown because it was just that - no-one was really interested in it prior to release, and the success was all word-of-mouth generated. 'Cloverfield' on the other hand, is just clever, slick - perhaps even cynical - marketing, and this 'review' is just typical...<p> I couldn't be LESS excited about this film.

    I'm embarrassed for them...

    by proton45

    Their are some clever minds behind the promotion of "Cloverfield" and it has made me (very) skeptical of any secondhand information I hear about the movie...However reading the paragraph about how they feel they "made Star Wars" made me cringe (I felt embarrassed for them)...The makers of "Star Wars" (way back when) didn't even know what they had before they released it...They thought that they had a "good movie" and hoped the public would like it, but they had no idea of the phenomena/sub-culture they where giving birth too...To suggest that "they"(cloverfield) feel they created something so monumental as Star Wars is embarrassing...maybe they should have said they made Jaws (LOL)...

    Remember when Bruce Willis said Die Hard 4 was gonna be as good

    by TheNorthlander

    or when he kept talking about how great he felt about it and everything?<br> <br> You see, people who work on movies are sometimes either blinded by the project as a sort of defense mechanism. Even though they know it's not that great they still convince themselves that it is to make a better job and keep the morale up.<br> <br> Also, sometimes they lie because it's in their interest.<br> <br> In this case, I say Don't believe the hype. If it's really that good, you'll hear it from people you know.

    So J.J Abrams make a Cloverfield trilogy that's awesome and in 2021, when he needs more money to pay for his divorce, he makes a prequel called episode 1: The monster menace.

    I wonder viewers will actually be able to work backwards after they see the film and see all of the clues they missed way back in July. I'd hate to think that there were no clues in any of that stuff. I would've wasted too much time pondering non-existant puzzles. Thats no fair!

    I liked MI3too (sounds like a star wars droid), I think it's by far the best in the series. The first one was really forgetable, except for that great opening where all the agents got killed, and the second one suffered from post matrix syndrome.<br> <br> But this isn't M:I 3.<br> <br> This is the Liam Gallagher school of self promotion, and rule #1 there is Boast your ass off because people are sheep.

    JJ and the producers have been fairly reticent. All of the hype is coming from people speculating. Im not sure why people are so angry at this film already. Nothing wrong with mystique. This is a unique appoach. Enjoy it. Would u be happier with knowing everything you think you want to know? Its human nature to want all the answers and get angry when they don't cme fast enough, but the anticipation and the slow unravelling is much more engaging.

    by Bobman46

    vaguely interesting to know it was screened but seriously......

  • Seriously... As soon as you raise that expectation, there really is no way for a movie to meet it. Largely, this is because people didn't go into "Star Wars" itself with preconceived measuring sticks. So this pretty much leaves the only point of this "review" and over-hype being to fan the flames of the haters in talkback chatter. None of which strikes me as good for the movie. At least the "Blair Witch" backlash came *after* the film had become a success.

    by dr sauch

    First off, The Mist was so so much better than I expected. Great. I've seen the Cloverfield trailer online before last night, but seeing it on the big screen really got me amped. I'm incredibly optimistic about this.

    by JackPumpkinhead

    Okay, it's not, but calling "plant" is a tradition worth keeping. By the way, I'm glad Harry did not mention [the guy who wrote "Superman vs. Doctor Lex Luthor, Flying Kryptonian CIA Agent"] anywhere. The damn egomaniac's name is already too often being attached to a film that he's only producing...

    Talbackers that is what happened to this site

    by emeraldboy

    Some talkbackers anyway. The talkbackers who genuinely love movies have been crowded out by those who patently dont. Those talkbackers who dont like movies use thier Alleged love movies as a front, to beat up on every single aspect of movies from the process of making movies to the studio system down to all directors, writers and finally the cast, the poster, the trailers. They all hated X-men 3, Superman returns, transformers. But yet they all went and saw those films, crowded on here, to say how awful those films were. Dont complain if one day harry decides to shut this website down and walk away. He only set up this because he genuinely believed that there were people who shared his love of film. some talkbackers have become the reason why this site is so terrible. If the talkback was filled with unifrom agreement all the time then it would become boring. Just once in a while it would be good if everyone agreed that the fil they saw was the best of the year. some talkbackers have made this site utter predictable and stale. With utter dislike of Movies in general and anyone who actually likes movies and has a good word to say. and if harry shuts this site which he wont, then those who hate movies only will have themselves to blame.

If no one is going to post a review then its a pretty pointless message really, isn't it? "But itz da necksed Stah Warz!!!!!" How are we supposed to know that???

Hype has alway been part of the hollywood system. This is a semi-hypothetical scenario. Hollywood gets total by superstorm and studio system gets suspended. Then there would be no hollywood, no movies no and reason for this site to exist at all. I cannot believe that there would people crowding on here if that happened and it may happen one day the way the weather is all fucked up globally to cheer the demise of the studio system.

    The irony of the Cloverfield Marketing campaign...

    by cinemaniac1979 that this is how all movies SHOULD be marketed. Personally, I like know very little about a movie before seeing it. In my world, 95% (or more) of the material intrailers would come from the first two reels. The trailer should set me up, the movie should knock me down. Unfortunately, we live in a world where marketing types are too cowardly to trust that people might actually be interested in seeing something unless they know the entire (tired) story, beat-by-beat. Maybe Cloverfield's greatest accomplishment will be to simply get trailer houses to learn how to cut a damn trailer.

    If the synopsis is true...

    by Larry Sellers

    It's kind of an interesting perspective. In films we always see a giant monster attack from a science or military perspective before that of the average person's. People who are incapable of stopping the creature and are only struggling to survive. Don't see how that could possibly be the next Star Wars but it's still kinda cool.

    AICN is marketing this movie

    by box

    AICN is being paid by the studio to market this movie and get awareness. all they have to do is every few weeks, up till release date, is post matter how much or how little content....that has the word "cloverfield" in it. this will stir up a talk back and get peoples interest in the movie up again. my suggestion.....stop talking back in these forums where it's obviously marketing shit by AICN. take your discussions to other areas of worth.

    We get a HUGE teaser to The Dark Tower in the opening to The Mist......Cloverfield trailer plays before the mist. JJ Abrams is producing Cloverfield....JJ Abrams purchased the rights to Dark Tower.........NExt Star WArs? Only thing on the horizon I can think of that can rival Star Wars as a giant epic series would be Dark Tower. How fucking cool would it be if JJ builds to the Dark Tower with actually other films tying into it? It's a long shot but it makes sense with all the secrecy and vague comments like the "Star wars" one......

    Cloverfield marketing

    by Fan180

    I think Abrams should have took the marketing further and had Coca-cola secretly create a Slusho drink well before the release of the movie. Each can containing clues about Cloverfield. Imagine seeing mysterious, green Slusho vending machines popping up on college campuses all across the America. I think it would have generated some real buzz and kept people talking.

    If not then when she stop waiting for the next Star Wars - since what makes it so special and unique won't ever be duplicated - since by definition it wouldn't be special or unique.

    The Dark Knight unleashes a marketing blitz across the web, with multiple websites such as The Gotham Times, The HaHaHa Times, Remembering Gina, We Are The Answer, and many many other websites representing Gotham's main institutions such as Police, Schools, Banking, Transport and Security, bringing Gotham to life with real e-mail addresses, phone numbers etc. basically constituting a massive online mystery to reveal just what is really going on with the Joker (not to mention the numerous whysoserious updates and games there have been recently) and AICN doesn't even report it in its footnotes. But Cloverfield gets headline news because some nobody apparently said 'it was awesome'. Fuck this site.

    NOT A PLANT (i suppose)

    by Harry Weinstein

    A plant would have gone on at great length without saying much of anything, and inserted lots of crappy catchphrases imitating other reviews their corporate masters e-mailed them from this site. No, I think that was real. I would never call it a review but I think it was a legit reaction. On that note, here's my "review" of Pang Ho Cheung's EXODUS. JUST SAW EXODUS IN A VERY SMALL SCREENING IN A ROOM ADJACENT TO MY BEDROOM! IT WAS AWESOME!!! See, no sell out in my review - I turn on the Caps Lock and I keep it that way 'till the review is over. Also, I only used exclamation points for ending sentences, and after "AWESOME" I used three of them. It underscores exactly how awesome EXODUS truly is. I even give you the location of the screening, so you can get a bit deeper into my frame of mind. This guy you published can't make up his mind about the awe-inspiring power of Caps Lock. He needs to either completely embrace it, or stick to capitalizing properly like he was writing for Film Comment or something.

    Hilarious talkback

    by DocPazuzu

    emeraldboy, you do have several valid points but they would have gone over better if you didn't mention THOSE films as examples. <p> Also, as much as this site drives me crazy on occasion, I love it dearly for the talkbacks. There is nothing more entertaining or funny than a talkback that's gone completely nuts, whether it's a geek franchise flame war, a good troll-bashing, or a new catch-phrased/themed frenzy. Sure, I'd prefer a few more serious film discussions every now and then, but I can't lie - I absolutely love the unique madness and hilarity of AICN talkback.

    by Mace Tofu

    The First shot in CLOVERFIELD is a tilt-down from a space to the NYC skyline. Suddenly something big enters the frame and just keeps going and going and going and going towards the statue of liberty. It was AWESOME! Then at the end of the movie a small group of fighter pilots fly F22's down city streets to sneak up on the giant monster Starfish- one of the pilots even calls it a "Death-star"- so they can try and shoot a missile into the monsters 3 meter wide blow-hole. I won't ruin the ending for you. On the response cards under "how was the story?" me and my friends all marked " Just like STAR WARS." so that may have started the "it's the next STAR WARS buzz" as it was a small screening.

    by Tenguman

    Was it written by a retarded first grader? Jesus Christ, that was possibly the worst attempt at spelling, punctuation, use of capital letters, and general syntax I've ever read (even for an internet-submitted review). When someone is THAT inept at basic writing functions, how am I supposed to take his ability to appropriately judge a movie seriously?

    by KillaKane

    'Mountains of Madness' IMO is the one future hope of delivering a truly classic 'Monster' movie that will evoke the kind of paranoia and doom laden terror that the likes of JC's The Thing accomplished way back. With such twisted and ethereal imagery that'll induce Lovecraftian nightmares and potential madness. Behold the Shoggoth! ;-)

    Well I heard from my baby's momma neighbor Sherita. Her cousin's second half brother, not Laquando, but LeCharles. Well it turns out he has a barber who is brothers with Lavar down the block. Not Lavar that just got out of the joint, but Lavar who been running down to cheat on his wife with that sleazy girl Da'isha. Well her sister's baby daddy's babysitter has two children that have a teacher whose boss ended up with a couple of free tickets to this movie down on Broadway. He ain't into plays, so he traded with his second uncle's neighbor who had two tickets to THIS movie. They swapped tickets and he saw it and wasn't that impressed. Said the monster looked like a damn twenty story chicken.

    I just got off skype with JJ Abrams

    by BobPalpatine

    He said he has as much to do with Cloverfield as he does with Lost. He then told me that he was working on MI:3-2 to which I told him Tom Cruise was no longer at Paramount to which he told me he was casting that rat-faced doctor from Lost as Ethan Hunt. And then there was silence as he waited for me to say "that is awesome". But I never did.

    I remember when I was a kid

    by BobPalpatine

    I saw this commercial where this kid got some new Transformers underwear, and as he put his legs through them they turned to cartoon transformer legs, and by the time he put them all the way on he had turned into transformer. He started smashing around in his room - you only heard the crashes, apparantly they didn't have the budget to actually show a cartoon thrashing a live action room, and then there was the obligatory mother's voice: "billy, what's going on up there?" So I got excited, told my mom we had to go to Target, we bought a 3 pack of Transformers underwear, and I was all psyched about turning into a Transformer, I suppose I thought if I did I would be strong enough to stop the pain, and of course nothing happened. I guess every kid has that moment when they first realized the world is a fucked place. I don't remember how old I was, but I'm pretty sure it was way too damn old to be buying transformers underwear, let alone believing I could change into one. Anyway, when my dad came home and found out my mom had spent 'his' money on the underoos, he kicked me in the stomach and I doubled over on the floor. IT WAS AWESOME!!!

    These people didn't see it. Think about it.... Why is this the only site with "reviews"? AICN has not scooped anything in ages and have been duped more times than The Who saying they're 'retired'. There are sites out there that I go to that have early reviews WELL before Harry's Hot Pockets are even purchased, let alone done in the microwave. ALL OF THESE REVIEWS ARE FAKE. J.J. is the smartest cat in the room when it comes to the power of the internet. What makes any of you guys think we're not being fucked with right now.

I mean, I mean the MONSTER! You just GOTS to see what they do with this new monster - it puts all the other movie monsters to shame, like, like, like Frakenstein, uh... that wolf guy - Beowolf... yeah. I mean if I could just go back and see this movie just one more time... I mean, boy would I be made. This ROCKS! You ROCK January Released Monster Movie!

    Why yell plant?

    by Mundungus

    Dude said it was solid but not great, and pissed on several aspects of the film. - - - - If he actually saw the preview then he gave a little info and his opinion without ejaculating all over the keyboard like so many reviewers do when trying to share their keen insights with the masses. - - - - Then some f-stick out there calls plant and we see the inevitable follow the leader routine where the mob tries to out denigrate the reviewer and shit on the film they haven't seen yet. - - - - I’m not above pissing on a film or a review, but if you’re going to call someone out I think that your criticism should jive with the original post, even if your real intent is to be more bombastic then the last guy.

    by Abominable Snowcone

    It might be fun, but c'mon. Over the last ten years we've had enough monster / mayhem movies where large cities get destroyed. There's always some "money" shot of an iconic building like Empire State or the White House getting ruined, and the big battles in the middle take place at night. I guess what I'm saying is, from what we've seen so far, the film offers nothing new.

  • Dec. 3, 2007, 8:35 a.m. CST


    by Abominable Snowcone

    When a 100 foot tall monster shows up in the middle of downtown and starts pushing buildings over, it's not a "secret government project." The whole pretentious artsy "Cloverfield" title does seem kinda nondesript.

    by Abominable Snowcone

    And holy crap was it awesome! Sure, I know what you're thinking. The 1982 original was a dorkfest. But trust me on this, and I'm not affiliated with the studio, Barry Bostwick still looks killer in a gold lame jumpsuit and pastel blue headband. He still makes the ladies swoon, and at the end of the new film he does the ol' "kiss the thumb" thing for his latest girl, played by clone of the deceased Persis Khambatta. There is no flying motorcyle in this one, but there is a new Megaforce tank that doubles as a hovercraft and a metropolitan hot dog stand. DEEDS NOT WORDS, and NOT PLANTS!!

    by Abominable Snowcone

    Craft services have not done their job if the buffet lacks ham. Just the other day on the post-prod set for Indy 4, I overheard Harrison Ford ask the caterer girl, "Where's the ham? Give me my ham!" And the girl fumbled with a spatula and said, "I burned my finger and I cracked a nail!" It was AWEsome!! Especially when Indy backhanded her and said, "Listen, dame, that's not how we do things around here."

    It was AWEsome!! Nazis reanimate Evel Knievels corpse and train him to be an infiltrator assassin! They test his skills by making him jump a rocket cycle over a football field of 50 burning crosses! It was crOSSome! But I did not like how they modified his patriotic jumpsuit with swastikas. But then I had to remind myself, hey, this is Zombie Knievel being used as a puppet by the Nazis. The best part is the climax, when Zombie Knievel jumps his rocket cycle over the grand canyon and through an allied forces BLIMP, igniting it, and landing safely on the other side--right on top of a baby jew in a carriage!! It was shocking, but AWEsome!! Viva Zombie Knievel!

    Christmas Story II

    by Abominable Snowcone

    I always thought they should have done a Christmas Story II, exploring a teenage Ralph and his burgeoning sexuality. Instead of saying "fudge," he's doing it with some hot chick at school in that shed in his back yard. That Christmas, he could learn to stroke his candy cane, if you know what I mean, and instead of the worry being "you'll poke your eye out" from a BB gun, it will be "you'll go blind" if you keep doing THAT. This movie would have been AWESOME. I can even hear Jean Shephard's narration: "Just what was this creamy stuff coming out of me, I thought. It sure FELT good, but now what to do with it? Maybe I'll wipe it with one of Randy's socks, the bastard."

Well, the new thing for the 00s is to compare shit with Dawson's Creek, and Cloverfield will be Dawson's Creek meets godzilla.

True, a small percentage of people are aware/obsessed with this movie (me) most average people HAVE ALREADY FORGOTTEN ALL ABOUT THE TRAILER BEFORE TRANSFORMERS!!!

    Just "remains" in her hair? Why not shampoo her with it! That'd be AWESOME!! Fecal conditioner for extra body! Oh yeah, you love it, baby, oohh yeeahhhh...and speaking of heinous sex acts, the office next to me is occupied by a cute supervisor. Technically, we're equals, but she's been here a little longer, so I regard her as a superior...with whom I want to copulate. I guess you could say she's BOSSOME! Okay, I'm reaching, I know.

    Surely A Steamboat Willie to be pedantic - but brilliantly funny nonetheless. So, where were we? Umm, Stephen Hawking just gave me a private reading of "A Brief History of Time". It was QUANTUM!!! No, no, perhaps not...Still, that's one more post toward the 1000.

    Hence The 1/18/08 Release Date...

    by Buzz Maverik

    This is a movie I am eager to see. The only thing I don't like about it is the hype, but that's not going to keep me away. Whether the hype is from Hollywood or from us is debatable...we're probably a little more media controlled than we'd like to think. But as long as they offer an original take on an old concept, I'm there!<p>I think they're probably trying to avoid the SNAKES ON A PLANE backlash, where we all talkbacked about it but we didn't go see it. I mean, what else is going to be available on 1/18/08? (I think CLOVERFIELD will avoid the SNAKES curse because with SNAKES the hype machine didn't realize we were laughing AT it, not WITH it).

    by Abominable Snowcone

    Would it not have been hilarious in Empire Strikes Back, when Han is about to be slam-dunked in carbonite, when Leia finally admits "I love you," instead of saying "I know," he gushed, "AWESOME!!!" Then they dunk his ass.

    Prediction: Worst film of 2008!

    by GAUGE105

    I've just wasted $15 seeing this freaking mess of a movie Cloverfield and as my title suggests, I'm predicting that this will be remembered as the worst film of 2008!! Does anyone remember how the Blair Witch Project was looked back on after all the hype died down? Thats right, you couldn't find anyone that would admit to liking it, well this will be no different. I warn you know SPOILERS AHEAD!! There is no conclusion to the movie, just an explosion. The guy holding the camera for most of the movie will do nothing but annoy you. The monster is like a cross between a lobster, the aliens from Resistance: FOM (PS3) and Sin from Final Fantasy 10 (PS2). ALL the characters will piss you off. And when when the credits start rolling you will say the same thing I did... "is that it?" I was looking forward to this as many people were since JJ was at the helm and now I just think he should stick to TV because his movie was a disaster

    Cloverfield Ending Credits (Spoilers)

    by Kiasuman

    Cloverfield Ending Credits At the credits ending of Cloverfield, *Spoilers* the audio from the video cam says, "Help us!". But when played backwards, it says, "It's still alive!" This happens after the end credits of Cloverfield. Assuming the speaker was Rob, he suggests Cloverfield (the monster) is still alive. This also suggests a sequel for Cloverfield 2! *Spoilers* The Japanese oil company TAGRUATO drops a satellite (Chimpanz III) into the ocean as part of viral marketing (shown at the end of the movie when Rob and Beth were on the ferris wheel). TAGRUATO works with SLUSHO (a slush company), as the main ingredient for SLUSHO is found at the satellite dropzone (deep ocean). While searching for satellite and ingredients, they woke Cloverfield (the monster). The main ingredient of Slusho apparently turns a tiny fish into a HUGE whale, which explains the size of Cloverfield. Rob apparently was going to be the Vice President of TAGRUATO in Japan.
