10 Cloverfield Lane. The sequal to Cloverfield
even though JJ Abrams’ wasted his time on that Star Wars. I will allowPosted 4 years ago
him to carry on filming (as long as the film is as good as the trailer)
Looks good watched the trailer yesterday was a little dark and ominous I liked it.Posted 4 years ago
I’ve been wondering since the first one when we would be seeing the inevitable sequel. Looks like it could be goodPosted 4 years ago
As long as it doesn’t have that idiot shouting all the time (did he die? cant remember) then i’m happyPosted 4 years ago
That trailer really reminds me of a film where a group of people (dozen or so, maybe more) were trapped in a basement type affair with a stairs up to a locked door…think maybe there’d been a ICBM or Nuclear attack above-ground…can’t remember the name of it…The Hole or something?
EDIT: No, not The Hole
*Goes off to rummage around IMDb…*
EDIT (squared): The Divide. It was shite. 🙂Posted 4 years ago
Looks interesting, and with JJA behind it I’m pretty confident it’ll be good.Posted 4 years ago
Oh yeo, that looks really good! I love it when a trailer leaves with loads of unanswered questions 🙂Posted 4 years ago
Trailer is great, John Goodman looks good in it. Just hope the film delivers now.Posted 4 years ago
Cloverfield was not only one of the most disappointing films I’ve every seen, it was also one of the most horrible cinema experiences I bothered suffering through. Utter, utter shite.
I won’t be watching this funny enough.Posted 4 years ago
and with JJA behind it
I really don’t get the love for this guy.
Cloverfield was indeed disappointing. Not sure I’d say “utter utter shite” (I’ve sat through Tarantino films after all) but it really wasn’t great at all.Posted 4 years ago
Excellent news, really enjoyed Cloverfield 😀Posted 4 years ago
Needs more lens flares.Posted 4 years ago
Unfortunately he’s said its not a sequel, more a cousin. Set in the same universe but nothing to do with CF
Also reminds me of [video]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HzEyprOx7-c[/video]Posted 4 years ago

Very excited to see this. I love cloverfield and Mary Elizabeth winstead so this is win win!Posted 4 years ago

Needs more lens flares.
I often get the feeling that I’m the only person other than JJA himself that actually really likes the lens flare thing.Posted 4 years ago
I couldn’t watch the trailer without thinking of Tiffany. Not sure it set the mood for some post-apocalyptic disaster movie.Posted 4 years ago
Lens flares always feel a bit Babylon 5 to me.

OT:Lens flares you say? [language warning]
On Topic: going to see this tonight. Excited.Posted 4 years ago
I thought it was excellent. I was actually tired when I left the cinema from being tense so much.Posted 4 years ago
is it filmed in vomit-vision?
(even now, years later, just thinking about cloverfield can bring on a migraine…)Posted 4 years ago
@GrahamS I might be wrong but I think Babylon 5 and lensflare are linked in computer graphics history, something to do with Lightwave on the Amiga which was used for the SFX.Posted 4 years ago
Amiga, you say?

Nah, just normal this time. iirc “this is not a sequel” still want to give it a go thoughPosted 4 years ago
I really enjoyed it. Better than Cloverfield which I also enjoyed.Posted 4 years ago
We saw it at the weekend and its pretty good, not really like Cloverfield.Posted 4 years ago
Yeah it’s all proper cinematography. No shaky cam.Posted 4 years ago
You’ve got Easy Rider to thank for lens flare, apparently. Always avoided before that – spoiled shots on account of dirty lenses.
Shooting on a budget and inexperienced, they didn’t clean their lenses properly, and the shots came out with loads of lens flare. No budget to reshoot, they’d thought they’d effed the whole thing up but had to go with what they had. Turns out that people thought it added a certain… I don’t know what, and it ended up being emulated deliberately for effect in films after that.
from memory of a doc seen 5-10 years ago, possibly mostly not true.Posted 4 years ago
JJA’s been a bugger for using anamorphic lenses, which can do some funky flare thingies. Didn’t he apologize for over-using them in one of the ‘Trek movies he did?Posted 4 years ago
WOW! THAT WAS AWESOME!Posted 4 years ago
Yeah, no, seriously.
Totally engrossing, only for one moment was I slightly out of suspense.
Winstead and Goodman hit it out of the park, their characterizations are excellent and watchable and it’s scripted and cut perfectly around them. I really liked the visual styling it’s got some nice tight focus shots and a well handled camera overall. Put it this way: I stopped noticing the inevitable dribble on the cinema’s screen after just a second.
Watching the events unfold is more than enough as you are drawn into them so naturally, and shocked enough early-on to have your real-world rationality somewhat perturbed. It also does it without resorting to repetitive gore which was impressive [though there is gore indeed, where justified].
There’s other things in the plot and VFX which are really nice and I thought the “Cloverfield” connections were fine too.
-ve: Eeer I guess it’s a fairly preposterous story. But I think it at least really uses that story well.
8/10 – Stonking. See on a big screen if possiblePosted 4 years ago
Totally agree with gofaster’s review, great film.Posted 4 years ago
You are right bainbrge I worked in film VFX around that time and used Lightwave. There wasn’t a huge amount of control over the lens flare as it was a new feature. It was used a lot in Babylon 5. They would have been using beta unreleased versions of the software as we were.
“LightWave was the first professional 3D package to incorporate lens flares into its arsenal. Simply put, a lens flare is an artifact that appears in the lens elements of a camera when you aim it toward a source of light. It is by all definitions a defect—a limitation of the camera lens. However, by imitating this defect, you can add the realism of using an actual camera to LightWave animations.”
Below are a couple of Lightwave scenes from about 1997.
These have been composited in 2d, the lens flare in the second one is a real camera shot element added on top of the CGI. God almost 20 years ago.

Goodman was ‘Bat Poop Crazy’ Not what i expected by a long shot, but i did like the connection to Cloverfield.
I was way off track with the plot (the sneaky blighters)Posted 4 years ago
