okay... after doing some reading, there is more to this movie than just the theatrical release, like I had hoped. Some of you may know J.J. Abrams work on the tv show 'LOST', which I am a big fan of, and the primary reason I went to see Cloverfield. J.J. likes to put tiny hints and hidden clues in LOST so I was paying close attention to any little things that seemed to catch my eye. I didn't find anything while watching the movie other than a Nokia poster in the subway that had particular words being blocked from view by the characters. Something to the effect of 'call them now'. Was what was displayed.
There are many things I missed apparently:
There's slusho.jp (a Japanimation-heavy site pushing a fake frozen drink), jamieandteddy.com (which hosts personal videos from two of the characters, the password is jllovesth), tagruato.jp (advertising a phony research and deep-sea drilling company) and tidowave.com (an anti-Tagruato Web site created by environmentalists).
A character in the show 'Heroes' is actually seen holding a Slusho drink in the show.
Some of the characters in the movie even have myspace pages.
All of this makes me feel a little better about the film, but it still doesn't make the movie any better for me, and it kinda disappoints me to think this is a movie that needs sequential movies to be good.
