Re: 10 Cloverfield Lane - Blu-ray Review

Was that girl really John Goodman's daughter?

The film was not very clear on that either but I think she wasn't.

I saw the movie opening day and have not seen it again since then but I seem to remember thinking that she was not his daughter

No she wasn't. the two find out that the shirt that he claimed was his daughter's as well as the earrings were from the girl next door who supposedly vanished before the shelter was completed.

Re: 10 Cloverfield Lane - Blu-ray Review

Color me late to the game and then color me confused. As Mike indicated the first part of the movie is pretty intense and one really never knows what John Goodman is about to do or not do. So yes it kept me on the edge of my seat and made me jump more than a few times, I would not like to be in the room with that dude.

The confusion part does come in the end and in some ways to me it almost feels rushed like we spent so much time on the first two thirds of the film that the second part was not really given an equal share of the story. Having said that I must admit that I have to go back and watch it again just to see it feels more linear now that I know what's going on. So once again into the breach I will go this morning where this afternoon to experience this rather unusual film just to see if there's things I missed and/or if my feelings have lived in a different direction.

Good Listening

Re: 10 Cloverfield Lane - Blu-ray Review

I just finished watching the movie once again and I can say that the second viewing was much better than the first by a substantial amount actually. Knowing a bit more about the story characters and how it leads to the ending made me appreciate everything a good bit more.

As Mike said the soundtrack is astounding and can be quite scary particularly in the latter part of the film I was afraid that either something in my room was gonna blow up or worse. There so many of those instant surprises that are so over-the-top like one of the first times when John Goodman slams his fist on the table, even the dog left the room after that.

I also did a small experiment after watching the movie again on the home theater and took it downstairs to watch it on a regular display with no subwoofers extra speakers or what have you and I have to think that the average viewing public will miss a lot of the subtle cues that not only draw your attention into what's going on in the screen but how much the sonics drive the action on the screen. It's a bit like when I first watched silence of the lambs and Jodie Foster was walking down the stairs to see Hopkins version of Hannibal Lecter. As she approaches the stairway there is a very low's almost subliminal rumbling in the soundtrack that clearly promotes the dangers she is about to get into. Watching it on a TV with no surround or subwoofers would rob the viewer of these wonderful sonic cues.
tripplej and asere like this.

Good Listening
