Ah, did that have 3 mins of Russian dialogue? Saw a good quality version, but that put me off.
Am intrigued Craig, what didnt you like about it?
I don't like found footage. I can't think of one film I liked of that format, I'm not too keen on REC and Spanish horror is one of my favourite genres, which suggests I'm not singling out Cloverfield.
The marketing of Cloverfield blew me away, it was the first piece of viral marketing I got involved in and I got totally sucked in and I looked forward to it as much as, say, The Matrix. The film failed to live up to the hype.
Poor script, Caplan is an awesome and was totally suffocated by the piss poor script.
I've taken baths deeper than the characters, maybe that was the point, but I need a little character development to buy into them, and I saw none.
An entirely unmemorable film for something that was billed as an epic monster movie (again, great marketing), I realise now while writing this I'd have to go back and watch again to find more stuff I dislike about it. But then I'd have to get my hands on a time machine and travel back 5 years and buy into the hype again, and to be honest, it's not worth the trouble.
