JamieAndTeddy Video #11 - The Zoom

There is a new video on JamieandTeddy.com (password: jllovesth).

Jamie is 'zooming' from the effects of too much of Slusho's secret ingerdient. It sounds like she says is going to Lily's party tonight. Is that Rob's going away party?

You can download the video directly here: JamieAndTeddy.com/number11.mov

Or watch it on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LyKsNYwmeiY

  2. I'm totally getting angry with this stuff after seeing the movie. Why all this build up about the dangerous and mood altering properties of Slusho and seabed's nectar if it's not in the damn movie, and Jamie isn't even in the movie in a meaningful way? If that's her on the couch, it doesn't even matter to the rest of the movie. Her sleeping on a couch has nothing to do with the monster attack. It's all pointless.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Why did the movie say this all happened on May 22? All the pics on 1-18-08.com say it happened today (1-18-08)...confusing

    and, do you think Jamie even survied the attack? she was passed out on the couch and all

    ReplyDelete
  4. Matt Reeves told everyone the pictures meant nothing, and the movie didn't take place today. We were told the viral stuff would not be in the movie. Seriously, if you paid attention, none of this is shocking.

  6. You really know Snyder is gonna get some, Jamie's MySpace even has a new blog saying that SOMEBODY is going to see her naked tonight... Hmmm... The start of a new era, I wonder what she means by that...

  8. She says "Lily's putting this thing together and I'm gonna go to it" so yeah, that'd be Rob.

    ReplyDelete
  9. why isn't there a post about the new entry at tidowave? that post is the craziest post as of yet

    ReplyDelete
  10. We still assume the viral is taking place in real time. The movie hasn't happened yet. I really doubt it's Rob's party.

    ReplyDelete
  11. TidoWave is locked or something...
    there's (what looks to be) a goverment symbol on the background and then some numbers and it says "locked".

    ReplyDelete
  12. Ah and proof Rob's party isn't tonight. Him and HUD have planned to watch Buffy tonight. Check their myspaces.

    ReplyDelete
  13. o my god! something happened to the tidowave site! I was just reading the blog entry, it froze, now it can't be clicked on!

    the last entry read "Home down, If we go quiet, it wont be permanent. may the great mother protect her servants in there greatest time of need. She guides our hands.

  14. someone go on Tagruato and translate what it says!!!!! hurry!

    ReplyDelete
  15. It's funny that she is all hyped up and stuff and then, if the party is Rob's, when you see her she's just lying on the couch with zero energy. Ty, it would be weird but cool to think that all that stuff takes place on April 27, 2008 and May 22/23, 2008. 4/27 is my birthday, at least it was a good day for Rob.....

    ReplyDelete
  16. I went to Slusho!.jp and it says i need flash player 8. But I've been on Slusho! alot of times and it's never done that.

    The weird part is that it's not the typical way a website would say it. It's like someone just typed it or something...

    does this happen to anyone else?

    ReplyDelete
  17. HUD's myspace has a response from Rob that he has tickets for 'My Fair Lady' tonight??

    Oh and Lily needs an ice bucket. And Beth commented to Lily that she's coming to the party anyway, but may be late.

    The plot thickens. I see it in 2.5 hours!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. The text on the Tagruato site says "Site down for maintenance"

    ReplyDelete
  19. It is totally happening tonight. Those who have seen the movie and paid attention to the dialog will see how this and the Myspace updates relate to the movie.

    Or, actually, it happened in May, so it's happening THAT night.

    ReplyDelete
  20. dont forget that rob's party was a surprise party!!

    what is going on???

    ReplyDelete
  21. The Tidowave site is all strange now.
    It looks like a fuzzy copy of the page with 18USCEC S 2332 B- locked
    with a big official looking government type of stamp. I think the stamp says internal affairs department.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sorry. The Chuai video's were in real time, the myspaces are in real time, Rob's going away party won't be until later.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh wow...

    Shit, "Gonna be the first night of the rest of my life" my ass. Wait until you wake up on that couch in Rob's apartment, Jamie. ;)

    Anyway, I can't believe she has nerve to say, "I think you're pathetic", psh.

    "I'm over you, hehe, I'm finally over you. And you know what? I feel like a whole new woman. And, it's like, gonna be the first night of the rest of my life. And I have, Lily's putting this thing together, and I'm gonna go to it. And I don't know, I just feel so, like, I'm like the, the happiest - the happiest I've ever been in my whole life. And, I don't know, I have like all this massive amounts of energy, and I'm having massive amounts of sex with Snyder. And it's just gonna be great, and I just think you should say, goodbye to these breasts 'cause your never gonna see them again, and to this. I think you're pathetic."

  24. wow what the heck is going on?

    "I'm over you ha ha, I'm finally over you an' you know what, I feel like a whole new woman an', its like gonna be like the first night of the rest of my life and, and Lilly's putting this thing together an I'm gonna go to it, an' I dunno I just feel so like, I'm like the happiest, I'm the happiest I've ever been in my whole life, and I donno I have like all this massive amounts of energy, I'm gonna have massive amounts of sex with Snyder an' its just gonna be great an I just think you should say goodbye to these girls *kiss*kiss* 'cause you're never gonna see 'em again and [?] *slaps*butt* I think you're pathetic."

    Other thoughts (contains spoilers):

    I'm absolutely positive that there is just simply a discontinuity between the times/dates in the viral game (MySpace etc.) and the movie itself.

    Jaimie's video is about the "thing" Lilly's putting together. Lilly's MySpace update has her preparing for a party (stressed, and angry at men--i.e. Hawk--again). Beth will probably show up, but is going to be late. Hud and Rob's Buffypalooza thing is Hud's front for getting Rob to the Party. And Rob and Hud(?) joke about "My Fair Lady" in the movie during the party.

    It is unfortunate, but better for them to have gone ahead with it as is, rather than trying to fix it after they'd made the goof (and thereby introducing more discontinuities for us to fixate on).

    As for things falling from the sky: Tagruato puts up a sattelite and then something splashes down a short while before Chuai is destroyed. Perhaps whatever splashes down in the final movie scene (I just saw the movie, and totally missed that... rats!) is a second creature arriving, distrubuted by the Tagruato sattelite after the first one was destroyed in the sea battle?

    Also: I'm pretty sure the explosions at the end were not nuclear. They only ever said "levelling the city" (not "nuking the city").

    I think this might be the end of the game for a little while (notice each of the sites shutting down or being shut down).

    One little prognostication: I think Jaimie might have survived! (Unless she got toasted by "hammer down".) It'd be funny for her to have been zonked out through the whole thing. I bet she wakes up with a serious case of the munchies! :)

  26. Took the nephews to see Cloverfield tonight and just got back. Hmmmmm. Can't say that we were thrilled. The movie itself was fun, but we didn't like the ending and the missing pieces (won't spoil it here).

    One nephew said that he hoped TPTB made second movie at the same time, a-la LOTR123, and that Part 2 will be releaseed in a couple months. I concur. It really needs a Part 2 IMNSHO.

    ReplyDelete
  27. 18USCEC S 2332 B is a US Code concerning Terrorism Transcending National Boundaries, probably concerning how Tagruato thought TIDO Wave was responsible for the Oil RIg collapse

    ReplyDelete
  28. I have a feeling all of this isn't over yet. The "...it's still alive..." audio, the fact that the party didn't take place in January, and the general loose ends within the viral sites leads me to believe 'the Robot' has something up its mechanical sleeves.

    I'm definitely staying tuned in the subsequent months.

    ReplyDelete
  29. If the game were over, then they would have stopped it all...

    ReplyDelete
  30. okay, so it is a mixture our tine/their time. they made a mistake by dating the news reports dec. 27th. but the movie is taking place today. all we have to look forward to is probably a last vid of jamie surviving because she was passed out the whole time and the manga explaining where the monster and tagruato have ties. but the myspaces time frame from his job offer blog and their sleepover in the movie is fucked up.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Saw the movie tonight, and really liked it. Except for the shaky camera thing. Also have my theory as to what the monster is based on.
    http://gloomygus.org/foruma/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=176

    The camera thing, maybe the date was just ste wrong on the camera. Also, it couldn't have been a nuke or the camera would have been fried at the end.

    I also hope nobody takes small children to see this film.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I saw the movie in Calgary-Canada at 12:30 p.m and it's awesome!!!!! I recommend it.

    ReplyDelete
  33. So basically we're guaranteed more viral stuff until May 22 and beyond (the movie takes place on May 22). The monster attacked the oil rig in present time, but the myspace stuff and the Jamie videos and the movie itself "haven't happened yet". All that stuff takes place closer to May. So be expecting more stuff leading up to May 22. I'm sure everything will be clear by that time. And then we can get viral news reports in May about the monster attacking New York.

    ReplyDelete
  34. HOLY SHI-

    Tagruato, it is down. Again. There is Japanese! Does anyone speak Japanese!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. the party starts in a few hours, im a litle exited! stay tuned, i gess theres gonna be a few fake news about the dissaster in NY

    i dont think the game is over...

    ReplyDelete
  36. OK, theres some monster related things about that movie that nobody is talking about at all, which is surprising because it confused the hell out of me, and im still confused.
    Hopefully unfiction has something, if not, r we allowed to talk spoiler now?
    Dennis maybe u could start a topic just for spoiler discussion about the movie?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh I love Jamie now...
    she's like the new Lonelygirl15... so that lonelygirl better look out! lol
    she's my new guilty pleasure...
    It's a shame it's coming to an end...

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ok since the Note says that "This website is a spoiler-free zone until 1-18-08", I have a question/comment. Did anyone else catch when someone commented in the subway that it felt like the little creature was trying to pull him away? Were those things trying to stock pile food for the monster?

    ReplyDelete
  39. *****CONFUSED SPOILERS******

    ok, im gonna email dennis, but id like to hear u guys calm me down too.
    Why did the monster seem to get bigger and smaller all the damn time?
    I mean, one second it was huge, the next it was just kind of average. Were there 2 monsters? i wanna think that there must have been, a mom and a kid.
    Otherwise it doesnt make sense.
    And can the monster jump? because it came out of freakin no where in the central park scene.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hey! If you haven't seen the movie yet...THEN YOUR LUCKY!!! The movie is dissapointing and they dont have anything to do with this slusho drink....Tagruato.....or Jamie and Teddy.

    ps. jamie is a drugy

    ReplyDelete
  41. this movie was a disaster the websites r way better!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. god somebody plz help me out.
    I loved the movie im just confused as hell, and i wont get to see it again until sunday.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Dude & Dudets....I Don't Think This Is Over.....Why Is Noone Talking About The Character Who Made It Out.......

    ReplyDelete
  44. The movie has EVERYTHING to do with Slush-O and Tagruato, but you have to visit the MySpace and viral pages to see it.

    Also, one of the characters has a Slush-O shirt.

    Also, the monster didn't seem to change size to me. It seemed about 300 feet tall, minimum, but it never seemed to get any bigger or smaller.

    Of course, if there WERE two, then that would definitely explain how it survived at the end...

    Hey, the movie's out! Spoiler restrictions are done!

    Anyway, I doubt there are two. It survived all those bombs dropped on it just before it lunged at the helicopter out of the smoke (indicating that its legs are strong enough for it to jump, or that it used its arms to jump). It survived bullets, missiles, bazookas, grenades... it survived everything the military threw at it. Since they didn't nuke Central Park, what makes anyone think that it wouldn't die after the beating it's been taking for seven hours?

    ReplyDelete
  45. higgins: we don't know *for sure* that Lily made it out, and also she didn't make that big of an impact on me. All I could think was how sorry I was for her running around New York in a party dress and heels.

    One of my issues about the movie is that the monster seemed to pick up Hud in its mouth [very "intimate" haha] and then threw him back down after chewing him. It didn't swallow him, and he was so small compared to the monster, you'd have thought it would ignore him or just stood on him or something.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Here's a head scratcher (if I paid attention that is lol)

    When Rob is giving his final speech at the end does he not say "It's 6:42am Saturday May 23rd"? If so then all of this takes place in 2009?

    ReplyDelete
  47. thats interesting!
    thx, ive began to change my mind about the size difference, i think the glimpses were just so hectic and short that i couldnt get a grip on the proportions.
    It didnt help that my friends agreed with me right after the movie, but i think they were feeding off my misinformation.
    thanks for helping me through this haha.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I've been wondering about why the monster only chewed Hud for a moment before spitting him out as well. After reviewing the movie, I came to notice a few things.

    1) The monster ALWAYS seemed to be where they were. I know this is typical of a monster movie, but this seemed different somehow.

    2) The parasites didn't try to bite Hud, they tried to drag him away.

    3) The monster sniffed Hud before biting him (that's probably what those red air sacs on the back of its head are for; smelling).

    4) That wasn't the first close encounter Hud had with the beast. He barely escaped it when he and the others retreated into the subway.

    For some reason, the monster was after Hud. It may have been that Hud had escaped it, which is why the parasites tried to drag him out of the subway. In the end, the monster only killed him instead of eating him, leaving me to believe that not only was it following Rob, but it has something resembling sentience.

    This thing is more than just alive. It thinks.

    ReplyDelete
  49. There is no size difference. When the monster stands upright, it's about 300 feet tall (guess). When it's on all fours, it's maybe 125 feet high, but over 400 feet long (with the tail). As for the final bite, a a potato chip to a 6 foot tall human is about 3% of his body height. A 6 foot tall human is about 2% of a 300 foot tall monster. Definitely a tasty morsel.

    ReplyDelete
  50. A tasty morsel humans may be to this thing, but why did it follow Hud for hours on end, only to chew him to death and spit him out? That's not the action of a regular man-eating kaiju. We know it's carnivorous and eats people, or that's the speculation we have. But why didn't it swallow Hud? Why simply kill him? And why follow him for so long only to do that?

    ReplyDelete
  51. I think we are all taking this "following Hud" thing a bit to far...I don't think it 'followed' him per say....i think the monster just 'happened' to be in most of the area's he was....after all...how good would the flick have been if the monster was all the way on the other side of the city, not really causing much concern to Rob, Hud and the others?

    ReplyDelete
  52. I don't think so. It is a typical monster movie rule that the creature must show up where the main characters are. The first few times, perhaps, but every other time after that, it headed directly toward them, and deliberately. And what about the parasites? We can't ignore that fact either.

    Something isn't right here. The monster is clearly a predator and a carnivore. Though we only have Marlena's testimony to go by, it is assumed that it eats humans. So why didn't it eat Hud?

    ReplyDelete
  53. The monster definitely was not following anyone. Matt Reeves said himself that the monster is "practically a baby, scared and confused" so why would he be hunting Hud down? Also, the size differences are definitely due to inconsistencies in animation, nothing more. It's just the graphics artists and animators etc. did have their models proportioned properly, thus, you seem to see different sizes.

    ReplyDelete
  54. One more thing, did anyone think that maybe Hud just slipped out of the monster's mouth? The monster bent down, chomped on Hud a bit, then Hud slipped out and the monster didn't want to waist time picking him back up again since it's being ambushed by soldiers again.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Also....All we see of Hud after the attack...is his upper portion (can't remember if its just his head or not) What's to say that the rest of his body wasn't eaten, or tossed hundreds of feet....

    ReplyDelete
  56. Good point higgins, that's the sort of thing that I was talking about. Hud could have slipped out of the monster's mouth, but who's to say the monster didn't just bite Hud in half and so his upper torso and the camera were all that were left. It would explain why Rob and Beth started crying and looked shocked before they even went over to him to check if he was alive.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I don't think Hud was chewed in half, really. If someone's cut in half, people don't run up and scream as if they're trying to get their attention. If someone's in half, you scream, and run. They were near him long enough that I think they were trying to make sure he wasn't still alive. Just my thoughts.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Something i and my friend discussed here is also.
    If i am remembering right, Slusho! contains the secret Sea Bed ingredient. If the theory that the monsters were hiding in the deep sea all these years and were disturbed by the drilling is true. Then they would be familiar to the sea bed ingredient found in Slusho!. Rob, now being an employee of Slusho!, has introduced the product to his friends. One of them (hud if i remember right) was saying the shit was addicting and he wants a lifetime supply of it in a my space comment. I'm going to have to quit being lazy and check out my sources after this. But if it is so, then his friends would be some of the few people in Manhattan drinking Slusho! and ingesting the Sea Bed ingredient. This could explain why the monster would be extra attracted to them. Since the sent might be familiar to it. This also would insure its 'innocent' trampling of the city. Its not targeting them simply smelling them stronger.

    Just some simple speculation to think on :/

    ReplyDelete
  59. I definitely think you're onto something skele-gee maybe tagruato knew they had messed up by creating this thing or pissing it off by holding it and the only way to stop people from being eaten or infected by the little creatures and cover their own collective asses was by secretly giving people the sea bed nectar by putting it into the slusho. I defintiely remember HUD saying he was addicted to the stuff and he wanted more. Tagruato probably knew Clover might've been on its way to America so thats why they were trying to launch the slusho campaign so quickly. Just a theory but it seems to make sense why none of the little creatures would bite HUD and why the monster didn't eat him at the end. Marlena was the only one bitten and she wasn' friends with Rob so she would also be the only one who hasn't tried the Slusho.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Slusho as a vaccine instead of a poison/drug would be an awesome twist!

    I think the discrepency in the timeframe is one of three things:
    1) they fucked up
    2) they released the movie sooner than originally intended,
    3) Cloverfield is part of the viral marketing for the REAL movie being released in may (or may 2009) that gives us more of the big picture about the monster.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Zoi in Japan said...
    3) Cloverfield is part of the viral marketing for the REAL movie being released in may (or may 2009) that gives us more of the big picture about the monster.--

    Great Idea! Think about the final posting on TIDOwave....basically "we'll be back"

    ReplyDelete
  62. Remember anyhow how JJ apparently said that they could have done with some Slusho? It might not be great, but it could explain Helo's theorie

    ReplyDelete
  63. Something I've been thinking about since seeing it is the telepathic link between the boy and the monster in the manga.

    Possible Spoilers!!!

    The monster didn't attack the city until the drama was unfolding about Beth and Rob at the party. Rob got really upset, and, boom, the monster attacks the city. This is probably really far fetched.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I would love if Cloverfield was actually part of the viral marketing itself. We have all the stuff online about the oil rig and Tagruato and TIDO in present time, then the myspace pages and Jamie videos (lol) in the furture leading to the movie which is set in the future. This could all be preparing us for another movie, a real big budget steady cam movie. So you'd basically have the stuff online, the Cloverfield movie would act as a witness report to what they experienced, then you have the next movie sort of like a sequel which is all steady and explains things more.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I think J.J. needs to put up a website that does nothing but explain the monster.
    So, it was standing on two legs when it first aproached beth's place. Ok, ive calmed down about that.
    And i guess we agree that it jumps, so thats call.
    the only thing still unanswered that nobodies mentioned is how the monster threw all that junk out of the water in the chuai vids.
    I figured they would show the monster doing that in tge movie but they didnt.
    Oh yeah, and was the thing that took the brooklyn bridge out its tail, Cause i thought it was a tentacle first, and it looked alot bigger than the tail did later in the movie.
    I cant wait to see this movie again and figure it out man.

    ReplyDelete
  66. lol well at least we can be fairly certain that she's dead. If she was passed out on the couch within the first half hour of the party I don't think that the explosion would have woken her up. Sorry Snyder!

    ReplyDelete
  67. The jamieandteddy video downloads page seems to be down as of this morning.

    There's no question she was heading to Rob's party. Any plans Rob & Hud have could be the classic "fake plans" people typically make to ensure a person attends their own going away party. The incongruity in the dates is just sloppiness on the part of the production/marketing team, and everyone is probably better off just accepting that we've been grifted by moviemakers who were interested in generating hype and nothing more.

    The monster was conceptually distracting and disappointing as well. An otherworldly appearance, with cheesy sci-fi design of its tiny monster friends? How does that tie in at all to the deep-sea theme that we've all been dedicated to investigating these last few months?

    I also feel really teased & ripped off by the lack of coherence between the ARG and the movie. I think this campaign actually punished everyone who followed along closely. If there were conceptual continuity this could have been an inventive new system: a movie which provides no backstory due to its POV & realtime nature, coupled with an ARG that rewards those who pay attention by answering so many questions that would naturally be generated by a movie with such narrative.

  68. Hey Dennis Here's a transcript of the video as far as i can tell it says with Schneider lol but i havent seen the film (and wont till the 1st of Feb :( damn UK lol - ooh id be grateful if you could keep a reiew off of the site until then :p of just spoiler mark it like) so you might be able to work out what she says after 'sex' from something from the film i dunno, here it is:


    im over you
    [laughs]
    im finally over you
    and you know what? i feel like a whole new woman and
    It's like gunna be the first night of the rest of my life and and
    lily's putting this thing together and i'm gunna go to it
    and i dunno i just feel so like im like the happiest
    - im the happiest i've ever been in my whole life
    and i dunno like i have all this MASSIVE amounts of energy
    and im gunna have all this MASSIVE amount of sex [with Schneider?]
    and its just gunna be great and i just think you should say goodbye to these guys
    [kiss]
    because your never gunna see them again and Teddy I think your pathetic

    Someone on Youtube was saying that she was going to Lily's party but i clearly hear her say lily's putting together this thing. so im presuming she is the one who organised Rob's surprise party.

    PS: Im not reading the comments because i dont wanna see any spoilers lol so if some1 has posted this already then...too bad lol :p

  69. Oops - I take back what I said two posts up - the jamieandteddy video page is working fine.

    ReplyDelete
  70. 1-18-08 was more of a red herring to throw us off, the
    movie begins on may 22nd and rob and beth sleep
    together sometime around april 27th. using those dates
    and all the information given so far the events of the
    oil rig attack, the chuai station attack, the jamie
    teddy videos and everything else given to us so far
    shows that the real official time for all of this is
    from april to may not december to january like we all
    believed.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Okay so I think were past and done with the spoiler free zone. But I'll try to make this question spoiler free. Did anyone else see the first helicopter come crashing down and burst or is it just me. Or did helicopter one get away?

  73. Skele-Gee, you really might be on the right track, that would also explain why Ganu was attempting to distribute Slusho through "pre-established public waterways".

    ReplyDelete
  74. Fer cryin' out loud, the dates were not a *mistake*. The viral campaign was set up to make us feel everything unfolding and leading to the event in real time. It was just part of the marketing schtick. If you really want to put a timeline together, you have to work backward from May 27, 2007 and and fill in the Tidowave/Tagruato/JaimeandTeddy/MySpace stuff.

  75. thats exactly what i was saying
    they werent mistakes but it seems more like they were either trying to throw us off or just hyping up the date of the movies release cause technically the "attack" happened on the 18th lol

  76. "Were those things trying to stock pile food for the monster?"

    A logical theory, but I can't help but feel in all of these monster movies that at their size eating people for sustenance would be like a human trying to get full off sunflower seeds: it just wouldn't quite work.

  77. I have to agree with inx. My theory all along even since before the film. (When speculation began about smaller creatures) that they would carry some sort of disease. Something they could inject their prey.Like spiders. (which they look like)

    Spiders have no chewing mouthparts, so they cannot chew their food. Instead they have to suck liquids out of the body of their prey. The poison which they inject in the prey contains chemicals that help dissolve or liquify the inner parts. Later the spider will then suck out the liquid content.

    Which explains why they wanted to drag hud away so they could eat him later. and why she was bleeding. her insides were melting. the exploding i can't explain.

    Although a strong point in chris's case is the term used throughout the making of the movie "parasite" a parasite is defined as..

    Parasitism is a type of symbiotic relationship between organisms of different species in which one, the parasite, benefits from a prolonged, close association with the other, the host, which is harmed. In general, parasites are much smaller than their hosts, show a high degree of specialization for their mode of life and reproduce more quickly and in greater numbers than their hosts.Many endoparasites infect their host by penetrating its external surface, while others must be ingested by the host. Once inside the host, adult endoparasites need to shed offspring into the external environment in order to infect other hosts. Many adult endoparasites reside in the host’s gastrointestinal tract, where offspring can be shed along with host excreta.

    i know that was long..

  79. Look let's not get angry. It's pretty simple, we are running on the same timeline as the movie. we are running parallel to their timeline. while it is in our time dec. (satellite falling, chuai attack, drama in the atlantic ocean with pics on 01-18-08) and jan. (attack, party) to their april (rob's job offer, him sleeping with beth, thing falling into the water at coney island) and may (party, monster attack on ny)... we are running parallel to the story. Everybody is dead now. The last post on Tagruato was Ganu getting attacked. TIDOwave will be shut down. Their site is now government property because they are eco-terrorists. Maybe Lil's myspace will be updated since we pressume she survived. More than likely Jamie is dead since she was passed out and they leveled NY. but the only sites we have left are 01-18-08.com and the manga that will describe the tie-ins between tagruato, tidowave, and the monster. Since we all clearly saw that the oil-tanker was a Tagruato tanker. (I was right the whole time about that by the way.) It was sad to see the myspaces and knowing everybody is dead at this point and it was cool to see the juxtaposition of the last scene of rob and beth dying to them proclaiming it was a great day a few weeks earlier. just like the irony in the teasers with $11 guy.

    At this point... there might be youtube accounts of the attack. it may be in our time but remember the movie did take place in may so you have two options to look. but knowing the final end credits audio says "It's still alive." maybe it is a hint to future attack movies with different casts? either way it goes this movie rocked my expectations!

    But wasn't it funny how Hud was a wink to all of the speculation that we all the cloverfield nerds were making? He was a nod to us the fans making all these presumptions on the web. That's the great thing about this movie is that we don't know what the hell the monster is. He is totally original and OUT OF NOWHERE! we don't know if he is from the bottom of the ocean or from space. All we know is he is a baby and is a couple of thousands of years old.

    BY the WAY! He has four arms and two legs! he has backward elbows! and the second set of arms was by his torso. Maybe that's why we all assumed he had tentacles? he is not three-legged, there is not multiple large monsters. HE WAS NOT FOLLOWING HUD! remember that the military was trying to keep him at bay so Rob decided to run into the area that the monster was in! that's why they kept running into the monster.

    As for the parasites, they weren't stockpiling food. They were attacking things to eat from since they were cut loose from their original host. I just want to know why the hell whatever they bite explodes? I just wished that they looked a little differently. And I cannot wait until the figure of the monster comes out because I am so gonna buy one.

  80. Dude. When they were getting Beth out of her apartment and they got on the roof? They saw the monster from there?

    1) The monster was walking towards the building.

    2) The monster looked right at them.

    3) Deep Sea Nectar is reported to sharpen eyesight, among other improvements.

    I'm telling you, if it wasn't following Hud specifically, though I doubt this due to the Parasites' behavior, then it was following the group in general.

  81. This is annoying. People pay attention. The Monster attacking the oil rig and the Tagruato/TIDO stuff is present tense. The Myspace stuff and Jamie videos are in the future. The movie itself is farther in the future. This means that there should be more Tagruato/TIDO stuff coming, as well as more Myspace stuff. I believe this will probably go on until May 22 when the monster "technically" attacks New York. Then we can get more viral marketing of news reports about the monster attacking New York.

    With the questions about why Marlena exploded, I liked the theory that the mutant spider crabs inject people with a sort of venom to liquidize the victim for them to suck up. These guys have basically beaks so they can't chew. I think that maybe the liquids build up so much that they just explode from their bellies. Mind you, this is just a theory. More ideas are sure to come.

    As for a sequel, Matt Reeves said in an interview that there is a high possibility of a second movie. However, the movie would be from the point of view of another group of people. Sorry to say that if you couldn't stand the shakiness of this movie, you won't like Cloverfield 2.

  82. It may last until May of 2009 because someone in another post brought up a good point that the dates May 22 and May 23 (the dates on the camera in the movie) only fall on a friday and saturday in May of 2009, not this year or last

  83. The attack is not in the FUTURE!!!

    WE are running on the SAME timeline as the movie. WE are running PARALLEL to their timeline. while it is in our time dec. (satellite falling, chuai attack, drama in the atlantic ocean with pics on 01-18-08) and jan. (attack, party) to their april (rob's job offer, him sleeping with beth, thing falling into the water at coney island) and may (party, monster attack on ny)... we are running parallel to the story.

  84. Did anyone consider the idea that none of them knew how to set the date on the camera? It could be as simple as that.

    also I found a video of the concept art picture of the creature. I know its real cause its pretty much the monster only with a few different changes.

  85. You know, really we can only speculate what the significance is between the difference of dates. Whether our december and january are their april and may, or if they are going out of order with the marketing releasing some present day stuff and some future stuff and then we get to piece everything all together and figure out how it all happened (like Star Wars), we can only guess.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Yes "me" we understand all of that but Rob very clearly says "it's saturday may 23" at the end of the movie and the only saturday the 23rd falls on is in 2009. I think we may find out the origin of the monster and many other unanswered questions through more viral marketing because I have faith in JJ and the fact that he won't leave us hanging and frankly if he doesn't then who cares the movie kicked ass!

  88. Has anyone really notice that all the sites related to Cloverfield are shut down? I haven't been on Cloverfieldclues in 24 hours and now all this happen!!??? I so new this was going to happen and I was freaking out last night. At 12:00 I’m like, “the monster just crashed the party!“ And now they're saying that the monster attack didn't happen last night? I haven't seen the movie and I don't think I can:( But it looks like that the date May 22 is when the attack really happens. Would that be 07 or 08? if its 08 then does that means that there's way more stuff on Cloverfield till May 22? Or was it 07 and there will be no more Cloverfield hype? I really need some one to help me now. And I don't want the movie to be spoiled for me. Please respond!
    I'm going to post this comment on a few more blogs on Cloverfieldclues so a lot more people can read this.

  90. but he gives no year... there is no actual year. it's just dated that may 23rd. it's meant to be timeless. because if you think about it, if it does take place in 2009 than all of the music played at the party would be extremely out dated. it's suspension of belief. we need to come to terms with it already... there is no year attached to this movie. it's just a parallel timeline to our viral marketing. the movie takes place in their alternate reality on may 22 and 23rd. CAN WE JUST COME TO TERMS WITH THAT!?

    i definitely saw a helicopter crash into the ground a bit after she took off. i just assumed it was hers.

  95. Wait, did Rob say "Saturday, May 23rd"? Because if he said Saturday, then this movie takes place in 2009 according to my computer calander.

    ReplyDelete
  96. You know, I bet another movie will come out next year, May 22. Matt Reeves said they were considering making another movie, a sequel, which would be all occur on the same night as the initial attack but would follow a different set of people's events. Basically, a second "eye witness of the attack".

    ReplyDelete
  97. i have to say "Me" what exactly is it that makes you think that the attack is parallel? i really have trouble accepting that and unless reeves or abrams themselves says that i cannot accept that. it is too much of an incongruity.

  98. This flick will hit DVD sooner or later. That'll make EVERYTHING easier for us, no doubt about it.

  99. Yeah, I can't wait for the DVD so I can here the movie commentary from Reeves and Abrams.

  100. @Zinjack... I say it's an alternate reality that is parallel to our timeline because it is. The Chaui reports and the fact that the piece of whatever fell into the ocean at the same time that Tagruato was looking for the satellite piece online is pretty much what is going on in our time. Except that it's their time. JJ and Matt have always said that the movie was not going to take place in January... we all knew that. Why the hell is everyone so damn disappointed with that when we were already given sufficient warning!? There is supposed to be suspension of disbelief in times like these! it's fiction... REALIZE THEY WARNED US AHEAD OF TIME!!!

  103. Why is everything circulated around 1/18/08, but the tape was shot on may 23rd. even on the myspaces of the kids they all logged on 1/18/08 so we assume they die on that day. But did this all happen 07 or 08 and if it does happen 08 will on may 23rd will there be a burst of info about the happenings?

    GOOD QUESTION????????????

    ReplyDelete
  104. jc.cadden : The two theories are either the attack actually happens on the May 22 and some of the viral marketing is in present tense so we see some future and some present and get to piece things together... or the movie is actually happening parallel to our time since we got the news about that satellite falling into the ocean in December, but in the movie that happens in April.

  106. Who the hell CARES when the events take place!!

    I've been sitting by quietly, listening, watching, and reading everyones comments everyday, and I can't believe the f'ing "timeline" has everybody in such a tizzy. ME,(not the pronoun me, but the blogger "me"), I'm with you. All of the viral marketing that had us all worked up about this movie was just that, MARKETING! It made us all SO excited to see this movie, some us twice, or three times already. The dates on the photos were subtle reminders of the release date of the movie. The news reports, the TIDO posts, the TAG releases....all of it.

    This is my first post on CC ever, but I just can't sit here and read all this hysteria about these "inconsistencies".... It's a movie..and it's only purpose was to hype, and ultimately entertain us. I'd say MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

    Besides, it seemed clear to me ever since J.J. spoke at the ECON that he was shooting for some sort of franchise. An "American" Godzilla. We may be in for years of this stuff....

    Maybe it's because I'm 40 years old, but if you want my advice...just sit back, and enjoy the ride.

  107. Not sure if anyone has brought this up but if not then I'll be the first to mention this so called oddity:

    The movie begins with Rob recording at Beth's house and if you notice the time was hitting 6:42 a.m.

    Now, fast fowarding to the end when Rob is talking into the camera, he states that the time is 6:42 a.m.

    I don't remember exactly what time was shown when Rob and Beth were in Coney Island when they show something in the water but it seemed to be somewhere in the 6-ish p.m. It's probably nothing but one never knows.

    Seems to me that this movie should've been called "24".

    Please post any feedback you have on this info. Thx!

  108. I saw the film last night, was pretty decent. Was gutted that I had seats too close to the screen though.

    I did not even see Jamie in the film? So she must have just been paid to do her short vids and setup a myspace?

    Also anyone know her real name as she is not listed as one of the actors to do with the film.

    Cheers

  109. Hey I justed to let everyone know something intresting I found.

    On Hud's myspace his hieght is 2'6. It's obviously not his actual hieght as he appears to be taller Jason at the party. Jason along with everyone who has thier hieght posted, has something that could be a correct hieght.

    This is leading me to think that Hud's posted hieght is foreshadowing about how Hud dies in the movie (bitten in half). It could be an easter egg.

    But then agian Hud seems like the type of normal guy to fly through his myspace crap so fast thTat he messed up. Although it's extremely doubtful...

    I think Hud does infact has more to do with the movie than meets the eye.

  110. Well, in case anyone goes back to blogs - it's been said that clovie aka mgp was "like a baby." babies are kinda notorious for sticking things in their mouths ... marlene did say it was eating people, but we never actually SEE that except when it chews on hud ...

    ReplyDelete
  111. Okay! People, HUD DID get bitten in half. When he drops from the monsters mouth, the camera points towards the mouth, and you see his legs sticking out from between the teeth, while also looking at another part of his body falling (maybe his hand or face.) It DID chew him in half.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Let's think about this... Maybe the monster WAS after Hud... Think about it. If this monster is of Tagruato's doings, then maybe they had trained it or something and sent it to get Hud. Why? I recall on Rob's MySpace page where Hud explains that Slusho! is part of an evil oil mining company called Tagruato... If he was onto them, who's to say they didn't send the monster to get him? just an out of this world thought, but it would make sense to the whole get hud theory, exept for being trained... who knows?

  113. Did anyone else notice that each character's myspace profile only has seven photos? I wonder if there is any significance to the number seven???? Just wondering.....
