Slow start... but picks up
Cloverfield is quite a good film..... beyond the first 17 odd minutes. Its starts terribly. It starts slower than a snail thats been nailed to a wall.....
But then there's a rumble and everything goes INSANE! There's no other word for it. You, as the viewer, have no idea what the hell is going on (just like the characters). So you know what they know and experience what they do. It makes for quite compelling viewing.
However, this film has no real plot. It feels quite random without any explanation to whats happening.
Bypass the bad points and the horrific start and you have a pretty fun, tense film here. I would watch it again, but its by no means an excellent film.
Universal Soldiers (2007)
This film is terrible. Truly awful. However, watched with friends whilst drinking it becomes one of the funniest films I have ever seen.
The acting is stupendously bad. The Storyline is non-existent. The Marines are the most incompetent people in the world. The special effects are laughable. The music is bad..very bad. I could go on and on...
BUT WAIT! This film is terribly (empahsis on terribly) amazing for the following:
The black guy - He is unintentionally hilarious! From his screaming down the radio, to his "fall-out" line when their not even falling out. But for me, the greatest piece of cinema I have ever seen in my life was when he did his super marine roll through the air for no reason whatsoever. It has to be seen to be believed.
All in all, don't watch this film is you expect some kind of masterpiece. Only watch it when intoxicated and with friends.
