    10 Cloverfield Lane 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 25 Jun, 2016

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    It's like when you're playing Mario 2 as a kid and think, why the hell am I pulling plants out of the ground, this isn't Mario. And then you get a little older and realize they just attached Mario's name to another game already in development. My biggest disappointment with this is there was simply zero reason to use the Cloverfield name outside of marketing purposes. It doesn't really add anything to the mythology and works more like Stephen Kings…

    Solid casting, good filmmaking, worthy story to tell, but seems like after awhile it just sort of floats there, whereas I usually like my films to feel like they are getting better as they go along. I found the first half more interesting. Did they manage to assemble a cast though.

    Had not seen in awhile and was doing a comparison of which is better part 1 or 2.

    The first thing that came as a surprise for me this time was, I spotted an actor and actress that also appeared In Near Dark. I Guess Kathryn Bigelow and James Cameron were sharing more than a bed!

    Linda Freaking Hamilton Rocks in here. <---Captain obvious statement.…

    Really intense film. This is a lesson in how to ramp up the tension that everyone should study.

    Now I have to see more of Ben Afflecks films.

    Besides taking abit to set everything up I can't really find any flaws in this movie. The airport scene was my favorite, especially when the guy is explaining to the soldier what the Argo movie will be about.

    I had been worried about a terrible depiction of the Iranian people in here…
