No more blog updates, just forum posts.

In order to keep the archives and content from Projectcloverfield.com available to the public, I have to leave everything intact, as well as the index page as opposed to putting the forum on the index. Eventually everything will be archived to another URL, and the forum in place on the index page.
For now however, you will need to click to the following address for further updates, commentary, and anything else. Comments on ANY entry on this blog have been deactivated.
We just received an anonymous email claiming to know secrets that only the creators and email author, excuse me, “monster,” know of. If you want to read the email in its entirety, then check out the latest forum post: Anonymous email from the “monster”. In order to reply to the post, you will need to register an account on the forum :o)

The title has no relation to what this post is going to be about, so ha!
Anyway, I’ve seen the number of you guys that like to comment back and forth, and I was actually thinking… With the movie being released already, there really isn’t a valid reason to keep running the blog as it is right now. Would you guys be more inclined to visit more often if this was converted to a forum? That way you would all be able to reply to each other but with more functionality (aka specific threads, quoting text, etc.)
Of course I would still have a section of the forum dedicated to posting news (which everyone would be able to do, instead of just myself and a select few.)
But please, let me know if this is something you’d all be interested in. I love that you guys come back to comment more, so whatever floats your boat, is what goes.

If you were like me at the end of Cloverfield, you wanted to get the hell out of there. Well, as most of you know, you wait, you get something awesome.
There is audio at the end of the credits for Cloverfield giving you a hint of what MAY be in store for a sequel, you know, to keep you in suspense.
Video under the cut, so it doesn’t spoil it for those of you that like to experience things firsthand.

Looking for Cloverfield reviews, etc.

I know some of you have expressed that you want to go ahead and send in your review of the movie Cloverfield. Rather than having your comment go by unnoticed in one of the posts here at Projectcloverfield.com, you can send me an email of your review to j.miskowicz/@/holdfire.net.
All reviews will be explicitly labeled as spoilers, regardless if it has spoilers in it or not. Feel free to be as creative as you want or whatever. I don’t care at all.
All I have to say about the movie is: LOL.
Review Numero Uno (Sensitive to your Spoiler Needs)
January 18th, 2008 at 8:20 pm in and written by Yooka | 50 Comments »
Hey all. Yooka is back. I return to give you two things; an unbiased review from a literary/cinematic perspective, and my impressions on a more personal level. Expect a helluva lot of reading. However, I will not be offended if you skim. :)
I was fortunate enough to work at a place that lets off early thanks to the good Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King. That is why I saw the movie during the day, and am able to get this review out to you super early. As the title suggests, I will clearly label when the spoilers are a-comin’!!!
I was also thoughtful enough to go with friends, and to have a bit of good ole’ Irish whiskey in me during the film. So that even if the odds and ends I picked up accidently from the commercials and the internet proved true, at least the evening wouldn’t be totally ruined for me. For all you young, budding alcoholics out there, I cannot emphasize enough how much I recommend flasks for a truly wonderful theater experience. However, since the buzz is still with me, I also much apologize for any extraneous rambling, or careless spelling or grammatical errors. Also, the spellchecker is giving me an XML error. Stupid spellchecker.
I also want to take this opportunity to thank Jordan for keeping up with the site during my exodus. From what little I’ve read, you’ve experienced first hand why I left. I hope no one spoiled it too bad for you. I also want to compliment you on being “teh lil’ hotness”.
K. On to the movie. No, no spoilers just yet. I’ll tell you when.
The first half hour or so was exactly what the beginning of the first trailer let on. It was a well-done camcorder collage of a love affair. The great thing about this stile of filmmaking is that it doesn’t demand very much of the actors, and I think that shows through. The party, and all the Rob & Beth “lubbie dubbie” stuff feels real enough because, basically, they are just being themselves. It gets the job done, much like the opening minutes of Blair Witch. I recommend those who haven’t yet seen it to allow themselves to put themselves in their shoes from the get go. Get personally involved, mentally immerse yourself in the high school-ish drama, and imagine that you are in their place. Pretend you are that male or female (whicever floats your boat more). You’ll get more out of the movie, and little curveballs that the director will throw at you will be more effective down the road.
Oh, I feel ashamed that I haven’t said it yet… but you simply must see this in theaters. It’s a good movie, but out of theaters, it loses most of the effect, (again) much like Blair Witch.
Alright, from this point forward…. Here Be Spoilars!!! Aaaargh!!

No more waiting, and sexually agressive monster…
January 18th, 2008 at 12:17 pm in and written by Jordan | 19 Comments »
Well, today is the day. We were going to go to a showing later on in the evening but I believe we’re going to go around 5pm today. Namely because there’s so many plans for tonight that we had to get it squeezed in as soon as possible :P
Anyway, check out a comic from HijiNKS ENSUE about the Cloverfield monster. Don’t worry, there’s no crazy spoilers. :o)
Coming of the end.

Hello everyone. First, i apologize for the lack of updates. I was instructed to include Cloverfield updates at the end of the week in a compiled single post :-(
Well, Paulisnofun said it best:
We made it. Today is 1-14-08. Only 5 days left until 1-18-08. Since July many of us have been following, and guessing, what this movie would be all about. In the past 7 months we had Trailers, and teasers. We had a giant lion. We had Ethan Haas being right. We had Ethan Haas being wrong. We had Godzilla, Rampage, even Voltron, and the Ghostbusters. We had War of the Gods. We had parasites, slushozoom, and ABZ3293. Hell, we even had Ryan Key from Yellowcard. Most of all, we had fun. So, what was your favorite part of this ride we call Cloverfield, and where will you be 1-18-2008?
Paul sent this to me, so credit goes to him. A truly inspiring piece Paul!
