    Default CLOVERFIELD!

    Holy Hell! Amazing, breath taking, spectacular, wonderful... so many words can describe this movie. Go and see it. The first 10 minutes I'm just sitting there all relaxed, feet up on the chair, just chillin. THEN THE **** HIT THE FAN, and from then on I'm on just mesmerized. Sitting at the end of my chair. Movie just rocked my world.

    I'm not gonna say anything about the movie yet, I'll wait till more people see it.

    I give this movie 7 out of 5 stars.

    Does it give you motion sickness though.

    I actually either will see it tonight or for sure tomorrow.

    Not sure really why but I expect this movie to be a huge hit - great trailer, great marketing, geared towards the right audience. if the word of mouth is decent, it will make over $200 M for sure

    Unclebuck, the two Bourne sequels hurt my head, but oddly enough this movie didn't 99% of the time. I don't know why.

    I saw a 11:45AM showing today, and I'd give it a very, very solid "B". I see so many (including Mr. Pink here) raving about it as "TEH BEST MOVIE EVAHR" and I just don't see it, but I think if I were to purely rate it on technical achievement it'd be an "A", but as a movie it's a good "B".

    I'd easily recommend checking it out, and I did enjoy it, but I just can't call it amazing or anything like that. It's well done, it's entertaining, I'll more than likely buy the DVD, but that's it.

    Quick question... did they show the new Star Trek movie teaser before the film?

    I'd like to see the movie, but it takes a lot to get me to a theater.

    EDIT: Nevermind, I went and found the teaser on YouTube. That was excellent.

    The hand held camera was pretty shaky at first, but I got used to it and it didn't even bother me at all rest of the movie.

    The Plot is simple, the acting isn't amazing, but I just loved the idea behind and how it's put together. Comedy in the right places, I don't know, but I just really really loved this movie.

    Yes you see the monster.

    The camera is definitely moving around quite a bit. It's like Blair Witch in that regard. Most of the time that didn't bother me in either movie, but yet in the Bourne Supremecy and Ultimatum, it did.

    It was an OK film. I'd give it 2 1/2 stars.

    Good action, decent film, not very long at all, either.

    The movie sucked, the "shake cam" ruined it big time... but man do I love Marlena.

    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    It's not the best quality. The trailer will be officially released online on Monday, I believe.

    I enjoyed it quite a lot. It works as a straight up monster movie as well as a comedy and a lot of suspense because you don't just see the monster tearing up the town the whole time.

    I enjoyed it a lot. The hand held camera style gave it a certain intimacy and reality.

    Did anyone catch the trailer for "Iron Man"? It looks like that could be a good one. My take on Cloverfield, the originality
    Spoiler Spoiler:
    and special effects alone make this a really good one. The ending disappointed me some, but what could you really do with it?

    The shaky camera gave me motion sickness more then a sense of reality. I understand the reasoning for it....but after 10 minutes of it....it became less of a sense of "Wow, this is what is really feels like if it happened to me" feeling and became more of a distraction.

    I had to turn away and close my eyes when they weren't doing anything of importance ( like running from place to place ).

    The theater manager came in to talk to us prior to the movie starting, saying in the prior showing 3 peple actually got sick. So he pointed out where the trash cans were, and asked us to please us them if needed, because he was tired of cleaning up messes.
