[02:16] <@SpeedRcrX> Holy s[BLEEP]t Cloverfield was awesome
[02:16] <flame_SNIPER> * has motion sickness @_@ *
[02:17] <@SpeedRcrX> I kinda regret waiting for the DVD now, seeing it on a true bug screenw ould have been awesome as all hell
[02:17] <flame_SNIPER> It was Godzilla done Blair Witch style
[02:18] <@SpeedRcrX> I have never felt so f[BLEEP]king immersed in a film before
[02:18] <@SpeedRcrX> I mean, it doesn't hurt that I know the NY area a bit and they did an AWESOME job of recreating ti all smashed up
[02:19] <Mdm_Maestro> Don't you think the imploding buildings were exploitative?
[02:19] <@SpeedRcrX> No. F[BLEEP]k that.
[02:19] <@SpeedRcrX> F[BLEEP]k that line of bulls[BLEEP]t reasoning.
[02:19] <@SpeedRcrX> If a giant creature slams into a building, it is going to f[BLEEP]king crumble. Just. Like. That.
[02:20] <@SpeedRcrX> Ad you're going to get the dust cloud, and the people fleeing and all that s[BLEEP]t.
[02:20] <@SpeedRcrX> You don't just conveniently ignore the consequences because they hit close to a prior experience.
[02:21] <@SpeedRcrX> This movie was all about making the most realistic monster-attack documentary, and it did the job
[02:22] <@SpeedRcrX> Murders happen all the time and you see them in film. Planes get hijacked, you still see those on film.
[02:22] <@SpeedRcrX> Reviewers who think J.J. Abrahms was just using the spectre of 9-11 to get cheap horror have missed the point COMPLETELY.
[02:23] <flame_SNIPER> I'm sorry I'd like to add to this but I need dramamine
[02:23] <@SpeedRcrX> LOL there were a few points when I felt I was in a game of the original Doom

     flame_SNIPER is away: it was a good movie but if you get motion sick, take your pills

[02:25] <Mdm_Maestro> Well, I hear they may make a sequel. I suppose you want to see that.
[02:25] <@SpeedRcrX> I dunno, actually
[02:25] <@SpeedRcrX> On the one hand the experience is gutwrenching like a Roller-coaster ride and it might make an awesome distraction for a few hours
[02:26] <@SpeedRcrX> But they'd have to be able to switch up the experiences otherwise it'll be a retread of the original
[02:26] <@SpeedRcrX> And I would be pissed if I just saw the same movie redone with different actors.
[02:26] <@SpeedRcrX> Holy s[BLEEP]t now I understand why some people hated Alien Resurrection.
[02:27] <Mdm_Maestro> I think all Science fiction is a waste of time.
[02:27] <@SpeedRcrX>
[02:28] <@SpeedRcrX> Anyway, I think that this movie is a definite renter, and if you can see it on a hugeass TV or on a projector like I did, see the damn thing.
[02:29] <@SpeedRcrX> The plot is threadbare, but it don't need a plot. This is all about the experience.
[02:29] <@SpeedRcrX> and for that I'd give it 6 and a half out od 7 dragonballs

personally I'm a little iffy about seeing the film myself (though I'm a HUUUUUGE Godzilla fan and Kaiju fan). More or less for me it has to do with amount of gore I heard in it (though that may sound a bit hypocritcle coming from me). Plus I'm not a huge fan of the ending they give, but this may be just cause I haven't seen the film myself. Just..coming from my love of japanese monster films and such, it still doesn't sound like the movie for me personally.
