I really enjoyed this movie. I entered the Odeon with high expectations, even though I didn’t know what to expect. As this is a spoiler free zone, I really can’t say too much about the content of the movie. It would be so easy to spoil it. But if you are a fan of the original Cloverfield and TV shows like Lost then you’ll enjoy this.
10 Cloverfield Lane has its critics, but I enjoyed every moment of the film and would no have changed a thing. The ending left me hungry for more and, as soon as I returned home I was Googling the movie’s plot safe in the knowledge that I’d seen everything that my searches might spoil. It was also a relief to finally feel safe browsing the internet without worrying that I’d inadvertently uncover a secret that would spoil the whole movie.
Thanks to the internet, I have now learned a lot more about the story’s origin than I did before I saw it. I understand a lot more and I can’t say that the understanding has necessarily enriched the experience. I’d see the movie again, but I don’t know if I’d want the DVD for my collection. Then again, these days we rarely view any of our DVDs.
I went to see Star Wars The Force Awakens on opening day and the cinema was packed out. 10 Cloverfield Lane’s opening day screening had about a dozen people besides myself. I enjoyed 10 Cloverfield Lane just about as much as I enjoyed Star Wars, if not more. It was just a different kind of enjoyment.
As Forrest Gump would say, That’s all I have to say ’bout dat…
