    See...it has been stated that Cloverfield is the USA's version of Godzilla. Godzilla was a lizard effected by nuclear testing zone radiation, and Cloverfield was a Whale that was effected by nuclear testing zone radiation.

    As for the camera stuff...as long as it isn't rediculously shaky...

    Interesting that you guys are bringing up sea monster, considering the trailers have hinted at the monster being some kind of massive lion. In the second trailer, there was even the shadow of one of the "offspring" monsters, and the silhouette of its head definitely looked feline. Perhaps the sea monster bit comes from the concept art that was leaked, showing a possible form of the monster. However, I believe that concept art has been debunked.

    Just finished watching the trailer with my girlfriend, and we both agree it definately came from the sea. If you have a look at the poster, there is what looks like a large wake mark going from the statue of liberty towards the mainland, indicating that it possibly walked along the bottom until it got to the shore.

    As for lion/whale, i don't think we will actually know until the end, after all this is the director that managed to keep us guessing about the lost monster for well over half a season, and it turned out to be a freaking polar bear in the middle of the tropics!

    Cannot wait for this one, it's like blair witch+Godzilla+Guns= Awesome

    From what I read from someone who got to see a screening of it, the face resembles a human's face, with red eyes, and that its huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge. From what I understand, its sopposed to be an alien. From this, people get bit or "infected," and burst open with a bunch of baby monstars running out of them.

    yea the sea is so unpredictable, since we have only explored something like 5% of our waters theres gotta be something big waiting to crawl on land like how the dinosaurs came to be, we have all seen how history repeats its self over and over you add all our chemicals and radio active materials we have created plus sea creatures we got some problems. an alien maybe that grew in the sea with out us knowing is possible but if there is other creatures with this big one its possible they are just parasites to scale with this larger monster like ticks or fleas. People keep hinting it to just be a remake of some old monster movies like the beast from 20,000 fathoms but what we have seen with lost I'm sure its a completely new monster with possible tributes to some classic monster movies tied in, but i hate to say it but hasn't New York city had enough attention in movies maybe make a monster movie in a different city for once lol. I know its big and is close to water but why not have something wipe out Mexico then work its way up to Canada and have a last stand with it in Greenland. I'm going to go see this film but I'm getting sick of this all this Hollywood and New York stuff. the host was cool Korea's monster movie. Like if you take a look at the 28 days later where england is over run with the rage virus that movie had so much more of a realistic devastated feel then that terrible I am legend film. maybe its just me but they gotta have a change before everyone gets bored of seeing New York in shambles. why not a film where a couple is on Vacation in the tropics and they get infected with some virus that grows and grows and eats them alive and the virus gets bigger then these little beasts spread around the world from being left on airplanes and hotel rooms and the whole world is infected not just New York. And the more they feed the bigger they get so when they get to lets say Africa they work their way up the food chain and can eat elephants whole then move into the ocean and end up eating whales, then this gigantic monster can take out cities no problem. just some random thoughts and ideas

    That scene where see the silhouettes of mini monsters chowin down on someone is actually not what it looks like. I have seen production stills (google it) and they are people in hazmat suits grabbing a civilian.

    No way it could make it to Greenland. We Canadians would trap it in a massive igloo, feed it some back bacon, Tim Horton's donuts, and Molson Canadian, maybe watch some hockey, and become good friends, eh. He could troop with us Badlanders wearing a Rancor costume. It would be awesome.

    We didn't really see the Lost monster for two seasons.. and it sure wasn't a polar bear..


    I remember rumors going around that this was going to be a Voltron movie in the beginning.. In the first trailer that came out, when someone says, "It's alive! It's huge" alot of people thought he said "It's a lion"

    The movie doesn't look all that shaky on the tv commercials, but it looked very shaky when I saw the 2nd trailer on the big screen.. Hoping I don't walk out of there nauseated..

    Anonymous CL0VERFlELD Review

    I was at the test screening at Paramount a few weeks back. I was lucky enough to be let in thanks to a connection that didn't initially come through at first. I've been a member of unfiction for quite awhile (since before "CF" became a phenomenon on this board) but I can't tell you who I am. I'm sorry. I know that everyone will immediately discredit this entire post because of that, but the movie comes out in a little over a month so you don't have to wait long to find out whether or not I'm *beep*

    I'm not going to be vague in my review like the others have. Quite plainly: If you don't want spoilers, get out now. I was a member of a test panel that included four or five other people that didn't even know what the hell Cloverfield was. (Only one recognized JJ in the opening credits and asked "Is this the LOST movie?") I'm actually kind of upset I let myself be in on this panel, to tell you the truth. So much of this film demands to be seen in a theater with surround sound, the works.
    I couldnt seem to get the text color to match the background to hide the review unless you highlighted it, so if you want the rest because you dont plan on seeing the movie... lemme know
