Piece Of Shit Or Not?- 10 Cloverfield Lane

King Ralph's always got to be runnin shit

Joe's Take-

"I Think We're Alone Now", starts off a lovely mood where Mary Elizabeth Winstead (The Thing prequel), John Goodman (The Hangover Part III), and some bearded guy, play games, do jigsaw puzzles, and dance to a jukebox, in what appears to be an underground bunker. Everything seems fine until... the music slows to an ominous halt and Goodman gets angry. Winstead gets tired of Goodman's fat ass eating up all the food, and proceeds to escape from said bunker. He chases her to no avail and she makes it outside. He then warns her of impending doom and we see the film's title. Is the Cloverfield monster baby lurking outside? Do Winstead and bearded guy hook up? And if so, do they team up and cannibalize Goodman to get their food back? Stay tuned to this station for some tense monster horror. I hope.

My Prediction- As long as 10 Cloverfield Lane doesn't go the lame sequel route like Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 (lost footage to standard film), then this film should be interesting. Not a Piece Of Shit. Unless that's what our main characters turn into after being digested. I wonder if those little parasite things will show up?

Mike's Take -

Cloverfield is one of those movies that took Hollywood by storm. A "shakey" cam style movie that showed New York getting clobbered by a giant "thing" that also happened to rain down little tiny monster baby raptor things. The best part of the movie, was that we didn't get to see the monster in its entirety. Brief glimpses here and there. Now we're getting a sequel (if you can really call it that) that seems to portend to greater things and has obvious connections to the original movie. Isolated in a farm house are three people. One of them is John Goodman, who for some reason has kidnapped two people or "saved them" from the events that are about to happen. I believe that 10 Cloverfield Lane is going to be a sort of prequel to the movie that will explain how the monster came about, but in the meantime, we're going to see an isolated movie that's, dare I say, more akin to an independent movie than a Hollywood blockbuster.

Piece of shit? John Goodman has been in a slew of movies over the past 3 years. He seems to be making a small come back and each time he's on screen he steals the show. This movie won't be a piece of shit.
