but love how it could explain the unexplainable.

Did it?  I just rolled my eyes at the superbowl commercial telling us we'd find answers in a JJ Abrams created franchise.

Yeah, I'm not sure why people keep expecting JJ Abrams to live up to the hype he creates.  He's like a more successful M Night Shaymalan in that he relies on a certain gimmick and isn't nearly as clever as he thinks he is.

I liked this

but the more I think about it, it really didnt need to be part of cloverfield. Since it just slowed things down with the scenes on earth and you kind of knew they would be doom.

Also the cloverifield monster always not as scary when you see it

Was there only one monster in the 1st?
I can’t remember.

Cos if there was only one, they really upsized it for this one...head & shoulders breaking through the cloud cover.

Yes just one. At the end of this movie he says these things are down here implying there are more. This one looked much bigger.

Saw it. Wasn’t a huge fan. Premise was interesting and the start intrigued me but then was a dud.

Nothing also came of the severed arm? Like really??

The Star Trek episode with billion alternate Enterprizes was a better take on the same core idea.

Apparently that could be the original cloverfield monsters mother. Abraham’s said the one in the first movie was just a baby

So from memory....they were just big monsters that caused destruction & death by their sheer size?

No atomic breath or lasers from their eyes?

Yeah just big. Though it also had parasites on its back, but would fall to the ground. if one of the parasites bite a human they would explode

So the consensus among you guys who've seen it is that it's decent? Because I feel like the critics have been absolutely savaging it. I plan to try it out anyway, just haven't gotten around to it. I liked Lane, which I actually want to watch again soon.

Lane is John Goodman giving 110%. There's no one in the new movie that elevates the material the way he did.

It's not that good. I give it maybe a 6/10. Has a few cool parts overall falls flat. That being said in terms of being a Cloverfield fan I enjoy it because of how it goes and explains things.

It's a mediocre to decent sci-fi disaster film.

IMO it's just disappointing that Cloverfield is trying so hard to be a franchise.

would rate this as not amazing, but not bad. Not as good as the other two Cloverfield movies, but it does more or less offer a lens through which to understand some of why the other movies happened. It peters out under it's own weight by the end, but there are some cool effects and solid cast.

I suspect the arm will be the only one who survives into the sequel.
