Nano Film Review #4 -- Cloverfield

Here's some math for you:

[(B - A) x 1000%] + (G/LotR) + H = C

In other words: Blair Witch Project minus annoying characters and lame "ad libbed dialogue"and then multiplied by about 1000% good filmmaking, added to Godzilla divided by Lord of the Rings style monsters, plus some real heart equals Cloverfield.

Ah, it's late. How about this:

Cloverfield = Awesome

PS -- Stick around for the credits. NOT because of the back-masking message at the end, but to hear the bombastic "Cloverfield Overture", that harkens back to the original Godzilla theme music and classic B-movies.

Back masking message? I didn't catch that. I didn't stick around. Dangit!

Any idea what the message was?

Rumour has it the message is "it's still alive". I have no idea what it was. I was just grinning through the music and then at the end of the credits there's some static and some garbled talking. It may not have been backmasked.
