  • Now that the fanboy hype has cleared, we can see Cloverfield for what it is: borrowed inspiration, trite screenwriting and amateurish acting all in the service of a ballsy idea -- that a horror movie could maybe, just maybe, have a soul. show more

  • Much scampering, yelling, quaking and crying is required of the actors, and they acquit themselves well enough, even with oozing fake wounds and prop rebars piercing their shoulder blades. show more

  • Think "Godzilla Unplugged" -- with chillingly effective results. show more

    I do not think Toho Studios have to worry about this monster picture replacing Godzilla, as it has none of the entertainment nor the imagination that a Godzilla movie has. You can watch a Godzilla movie and enjoy it, it had something to offer. This movie does not. It comes from the looser who gave as Atlas and Lost TV shows, they must have been lost in the clouds or on drugs when they wrote this screenplay. There is no acting in it either, Looks like they cast people who could not even make it in Daytime Television soaps. It only makes me see how good the 60's Godzilla movies really are.

    Saw this movie recently and can just say "DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME!!!" It was the most horrific mashup of popular monster movies I have ever seen. It should really be titled "Monster Movie" so people know it's a parody and a piece of crap. More or less "Godzilla but from the collateral damage's view of things and not the usual Hero/Heroine's perspective. If you wonder what it was like for the bystanders when "Monster Movie X" was produced here's your movie. This movie contains all the things one expects of a monster movie and borrows shamefully from so many other movies it is not even funny. The only thing that could be seen as "good" with it is the ending that is so perplexing that one does not really understand it is finally over until the credits start to roll. Also it leaves more questions than answers which might be good if you like that sort of thing. I personally hate it and that was one more thing that pulled down the review rating. Well done if one wants to milk out another movie and create a franchise. So this is exactly why I give it just ONE star.
