Since Elle Fanning was 12 years old while filming her driving scene, it was illegal for her to actually drive, so there is another person driving the car with a mini-steering wheel in the backseat. See more »
In the closeup of the metal cube vibrating on the table in Joe's bedroom (26:48-26:54), the cube has a different design and finish than it does in any other shot. When Joe originally picks up that cube (at around 9 mins) and when he holds it while taking a bath (at around 29 mins), its sides are nearly flat. The vibrating design cube is also shown at 57:32 as Alice climbs into Joe's room and again when it vibrates a second time from 1:01:29 to 1:01:54. See more »
Several other reviewers have aptly said what all I want to say about this pathetic excuse of a movie. The movie is boring, stupid & an utter thrash. Why SS would associate himself with it, we might never know.
The story meanders along slowly. The scenes are SUPER clichéd. You just know whats going to happen next. Majority of the film is in dark. Its annoying just like the other one produced by JJ, Cloverfield. The monster is always in the dark & we only get to see its glimpses & when we do its so frickin ugly that that in itself is a huge turn-off.
I don't know what people see in such stupid film-making that the rating goes 8+. I hope it will settle around a number that it truly deserves.
This isn't homage to Spielberg. Its an insult. SS classics not only had a good story & great direction but the monsters/aliens/dinosaurs were also "visible" in broad day light. Shooting in dark with few cut scenes of the "selling-point" of your movie is worst kind of film-making.
