YES IVE BEEN TRYNA TELL PEOPLE THAT sh*t ALL DAY...WE AS AMERICANS ARE SPOILED WITH HAPPY ENDINGS EVERY SINCE OUR TODDLER YEARS ,"AND THEY LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER." WE ALWAYS WANT A HAPPY ENDING...WHY DO YOU THINK THEY CHANGED THE ENDING TO "THE DESCENT" FOR AMERICANS?
YOU CAN TELL FROM THE BEGINNING THAT CLOVERFIELD WILL NOT HAVE A HAPPY ENDING...1) THE TAPE WAS DISCOVERED IN A RENAMED AREA OF A PLACE THAT USED TO BE "CENTRAL PARK" 2) EVERYONE DIED BESIDES LILY 3) ITS ON A EFFIN VIDEO CAMERA!! WHAT DO YOU EXPECT!!!! DO YOU THINK ROB WOULD KNO EVERYTHING ABOUT THE MONSTER AND EXPLAIN IT AND GET A GUN FROM M.I.B. AND k!ll IT AND fu*k BETH LIKE CRAZY...THE BATTERY WOULD HAVE WENT OUT ANYWAY PEOPLE.
HE EXPLAINS THAT HE DOESNT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE MONSTER AND HOW WOULD HE? HE'S RUNNING FOR HIS fu*kIN LIFE TRYNA SAVE HIS GIRLFRIEND. DO YOU THINK HE'LL HAVE TIME TO BE LIKE HEY MR. MILITARY MAN. WHAT IS THIS MONSTER WE'RE f!ghtING? WHERE DID IT COME FROM? WHY IS IT SO MAD? I SEE THIS CHOPPER THAT WOULD LEAD ME TO SAFETY BUT I WANNA SIT HERE AND TALK TO YOU WHILE THIS THING BREATHES DOWN OU NECK come on now...put yourself in that situation
QFT! that's all i've been tryin' to say.
my friends and i all thought it was an awesome movie, and we understand that you won't get a lot of answers for what's going on because 1) this movie is primarily about the group's survival in this devastating crisis, 2) no one's omnipotent in a first-person perspective
movie, 3) this all happened suddenly, answers don't just fall out the sky, 4) even in real life, the news can't break down and analyze a sudden crisis in 60 seconds. this movie did almost everything right. one complaint i would have was the Statue of Liberty's head being so small compared to real life, but i felt it was a minor blurb that didn't even take away the aura of this movie.
i would've liked to see the uncut, "brutal" version that J.J. Abrams was talking about, but i was satisfied with this. the fact that love didn't conquer all just made this movie that much more great for me. haha. fu*k your storybook endings!
