Cloverfield.

While J.J. Abrams was on the press circuit for Mission: Impossible III in Japan, he had the idea for a monster movie, akin to the classic Godzilla pictures but with less focus on the monster and a much more intense and insane feeling.

In this episode of The 602 Club Matthew Rushing and Christy Morris talk about Cloverfield. We discuss a monster movie, found footage, the story, cast, ending, moral of the story, our ratings and a brand new segment, our recommendations for the week!
