All right now those of you trying to talk me out of watching a movie should take a lesson from The A.V. Club - telling me it’s a C+ movie and basically going “Eh …” is going to poke a needle in my curiosity way better than telling me it’s the worst thing you’ve ever seen.
I really don’t think John Goodman is in this, as much as you might protest. But the brief camera shot that moved around the bomb shelter that the husband and little girl went to looked just like my memory of the shelter from 10 Cloverfield Lane. At least the kitchen did. And the entry shaft. I could be wrong.
For this movie? Sure. It certainly feels that way. Of course, taking a movie that was already in production, then making the creative folks rejigger it for the Cloverfield brand is not the best strategy.
No, you’re correct. Bad Robot and Paramount picked this movie up when it was still God Particle and told the production that it was going to be turned into a Cloverfield joint. They literally changed the script while they started filming. Paramount then sold the movie to Netflix.
