10 Cloverfield Lane

Armageddon to Room’s Deep Impact.  10 Cloverfield Lane is a pseudo-sequel to J.J. Abram’s 2008 found footage cult classic “Cloverfield.” I only say pseudo because they are very different movies and one doesn’t have much to do with the other (you may even be better off seeing this without having ever seen “Cloverfield,” as it will create added suspense of what the hell is going on). In an era where movies are announced years in advance (especially sequels), it’s impressive that they were able to keep this movie under wraps for as long as they did, but I guess it’s an easier feat to pull off with such a small cast (John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Gallagher Jr.).  I have a feeling the director of this movie grew up on Spielberg and the writer was heavily influenced by MacGyver reruns.   Tier 3
