A Chunk of 'Cloverfield'

Can’t quite call this a trailer, as it looks like simply a chunk of the film…

You know what really excites me about this? The fact that January 18th doesn’t feel all that far away anymore. (But I still think I’m gonna bring some Dramamine with me because all of that handheld camerawork — while a very neat storytelling conceit — is bound to make me hurl.)

    Two words: hell yes.

    I swear that if this movie’s MONSTER ends up being something like Godzilla then I am going to just…I don’t know but it won’t be good.

    I cannot WAIT to see this movie. I hope that it doesn’t disappoint after all of the hype and press it’s received over the last year. Hope the monster is good too!

    I really hope this isn’t what the movie is really like, because all I can say is “Super Cheese.” To me it felt like a student film with a huge budget. The guy yelling off screen “we’re at war,” the couple finding each other just when they happened to be perfectly framed, and the obvious reference to everyone’s favorite – 9/11. Please.

    Another two words: hell, no.

    I got to level 40 when this game was on NES, but I preferred playing as the Gorilla.

    I don’t know if it’s a generational thing or simply a bodily make-up thing, but I’ve never had a problem with the shakey camera work. I hear a lot of complaints about it, but itt adds to the freneticism, it pulls you into the movie! It’s why the “Bourne” movies work so well–it adds a level of uncertainty and disorientation that makes the stakes go that much higher for both the character and the viewer. Anyway…. I’ll definitely be in line opening night.

    I agree with everything you just said. I’ve never ever gotten sick as a result of the camerawork in a movie. I wouldn’t necessarily say I have a stronger stomach than the next person, it’s just never ever happened, and I feel bad for the people it DOES happen to.
    Because when done right (as in the “Bourne” films and, it seems, “Cloverfield”) it can be an interesting way to tell a story. Then again, when done wrong, it’s just annoying (all the unnecessary shakiness and cutting in Tony Scott’s “Man on Fire”). Still, I’d rather be annoyed than sick to my stomach.

    Man, I seriously can’t wait for that!

    I think that’s what I saw before “Superman Returns.” Not quite a trailer, but completely awesome. It’s odd – when I watch hand held cameras on a small scale, I think “oooh, I don’t know if I can handle that.” But then when I’m in a theater, I barely notice it.
    I was really hoping for a Lovecraftian/The Olde Ones kind of thang, but I don’t think I’m going to get it.

  • Adrienne

    Even though it’s just an extended version of what they showed in the theaters earlier this year, I’m super excited to see this. Shaky camera work and all!

  • Ian Mac

    To second and extend Laura’s comment:
    Hell fuckin yes.

  • skye

    I wanna see it! before this, I didn’t even know this movie existed…WHATS ALIVE?!?!? I moght go just to find out. :)

  • dma69

    I’ve seen this already in previous trailers. A monster? Aliens? Eitehr way I don’t think I can care anymore. The shakey-cam and lack of lightnig is really getting on my nerves.
