Cloverfield v. 10 Cloverfield Lane
« on: January 16, 2016, 05:34:07 PM »
Well I just heard about and saw the trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane and I've read some discussions on it. What are your thoughts on it? How connected do you think it will be? Did you see it coming?

Looks mighty interesting! Nice cast. Good trailer too. Intense but doesn't show much of anything in terms of reveals (seemingly so at least).

I'll be watching it. I really enjoyed the first and this might just be a spiritual successor to it but I think I'd prefer that than a phoned in sequel.

Thinks it look interesting and I enjoyed Cloverfield so i'm down for this.
There were times when Rik and I were writing together when we almost died laughing. They were some of the most carefree stupid days I ever had, and I feel privileged to have shared them with him. And now he's died for real. Without me. Selfish bastard.

Cloverfield's ingenious marketing campaign made me so hyped the see the film when it was first coming out, but it just turned out to be a decent, but not amazing monster flick. I really couldn't care any less about the main characters, as they all just seemed so generic and two-dimensional, like they were an after-thought while the main focus was put towards the monster and the mysterious tone and secrecy, which is where it really shined for me.

10 Cloverfield Lane seems more like an anthology film, a different genre than the first and telling a different story set in the same universe. I feel it could really work as a psychological thriller if that's where they're going with this. I'm all for it.

Because I had heard nothing about this movie and because of the tone of the trailer (and that it wasn't found footage), I thought it was a joke. Like an april's fools. Through the entire trailer I was unsure whether I should take it seriously or not.

I liked Cloverfield well enough, and am interested, but not very excited, to see this one.

I was really disappointed and bored by the first one. At least this one won't be FPV the entire time. Though I have to say, outside of John Goodman being a main character, this new trailer doesn't really excited. Like Cloverfield's trailer, this gives us practically no information.

Which is one thing I liked about it. I won't watch any more trailers, this first one gave me what I needed.

Totally agree.   I hate when trailers tell you too much.   This just piqued my curiosity.  It got me to go to the Wiki page, which has a bit more info.

I think the trailer was extremely effective.

I've been following the reddit discussion on it and there are a lot of coincidences, we may have a new ARG on our hands:

I'm looking forward to it.  I enjoyed Cloverfield, so this might be fun.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I really enjoyed 10 Cloverfield Lane, actually I thought it was more interesting than Cloverfield even though I enjoyed that too. Anyway just saw that it's a triology and the next movie called God Particle is set to be released February 2 next year.  Apparently it's set in space this time, i'm down for that!  :tup

Yeah I dug this quite a bit. I know a lot of people were torn on the ending but I loved it. The rest of the film was interesting enough but if they're going to make a Cloverfield film, I'd prefer them to go ham with it.  :lol Don't get me wrong, I don't want yet another action packed, explosion galore, Bay-esque alien flick. But 10CL was a bit too restrained and out of the realm of the Cloverfield universe for my liking most of the time. They're really good at making their films all foggy and excel in the social media aspects and fooling peeps but I'm a bit over that side of it now. If the next one goes total alien and still has that great thriller/mystery/ever-so-slight-horror vibe that these films did, I'll be more than happy.

But they don't need to prove that they can fool the public or make it seems all mysterious anymore. I'm hoping that since they've announced that this is apart of the universe and that 10CL ended with a huge cliffhanger, they'll have this one just knee deep in alien lore and craziness.

What I'm interested in is how/if the aliens in 10CL have any connection to the first one because they sure don't seem like they do in any way. But if this next one ties them together that'd be pretty great. I'd also not be opposed to these films being standalone and them just having another random alien species but have it in the same "universe". Hrrrm...

I actually think I enjoyed 10CL because it was so diffrent from the first movie and what I expected.

I don't know if you've seen but there's some theories out there about the connection of the movies, I find this to be the most interesting i've seen:

Had no idea about the length they went with the viral marketing of the movie.

Yeah they've gone ham on viral marketing for both of these movies, which is why I'd like that to be toned down a bit for the next one. I wouldn't necessarily dislike it, but it certainly feels like it may take away from some aspects of the film to make that "fourth wall" aspect happen. That may be reaching but...I think a more restrained and classic approach to the next one may benefit it.

But I agree, I definitely liked that it was so different from the original, just different in a way that didn't completely mesh with my tastes. Though that was utterly rectified by the end of the film. There's just something bittersweet about being so completely hyped about what happens in a film and then it abruptly ends.  :lol
