I was already disappointed when I found out the giant mutant whale thing was a fake. I'd love to see that in a movie. It's big, impressive, and especially unique. I'd like to see something a bit different from a typical giant monster. The Korean film, The Host, did a nice job in that regard.

I'm still hoping we'll see a great monster in Cloverfield, but that whale would have been amazing.

Harry Knowles at AICN has seen the movie and has a pretty much spoiler free review up. He liked the movie, though that doesn't mean a helluva lot to me.

Thought you guys might find it interesting.

Knowles isn't known for being as critical as other critics, and some other sites I'm active at are insisting that if Knowles liked it, it has to stink.  I'm planning to see this, but to be honest I'm not going in with high hopes.  I prefer my giant monsters to be Japanese, they make much more entertaining flicks.

Almost everytime I read a review in which Harry Knowles gushes over some movie the movie ends up being complete crap.  I really don't understand how he has gotten to be viewed as such a revered and credible critic by so many people when the man can't hardly type sentences correctly at times IMO.

I'll probably just wait for the DVD.

I don't think that people go to AICN for the reviews. Most talkbackers usually slam the reviews, its like bloodsport. AICN is simply an outlet to hear news and rumors.

I usually go to chud.com for any new/rumor type stuff in regards to movies.

AICN gives me a headache a lot of the time in terms of how stuff is "written" on that site.

I'm going to a screening of it - or I'm going to try to - on the 16th at Fox Studios. Yes, I want to see the monster, but I'm also looking forward to the film in general. :)

There's another clip with a new, head-on view of the monster. Of course, you cannot see much, with it being smoky and dark.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

You know, as bad as I think it's going to be, I still plan on going next weekend if I can convince my cousin to go with me.  (I hate going to movies alone.)  Maybe it will be either surprisingly good or bad enough to be enjoyable.

I kept rewinding the 9-10 second mark about 20 times in a row and I could just make out two floppy looking Dagon type arms hanging while the poor beast got blasted....akkk, screw this....I need to see this movie....this monster is forcing me to see him!!!

Hate to say it, because I never really bought into the "it's Deanzilla!" stuff, but the arms and the general outline really do look like Deanzilla.

The latest buzz seems to be hinting of an H.P. Lovecraft tie-in with the creature attacking New York. That might be interesting...

You know, I went in expecting to feel ripped off by transformers, but had a good laugh and ultimately had to respect the director, if only a little.

A fellow film buff hated it even though he saw it for free (though he saw it on a small screen). I may go see it just to hate it, or perhaps appreciate something unexpected.

Word is the whole movie is less than 90minutes, and that the first 30 is nothing but annoying college kids being annoying college kids.

It may just be masochism that I'm even still considering it.
