When I first saw it, it reminded me of the video sequence in Gerry McGuire where the firm dump him, very odd, I guess it's pitching for the Independence Day crowd, people who are happy to watch moves and leave their brains at home.

The thing that interests me are the hints that it is a Cthulhu mythos based "invasion" told first person by way of camcorders. Most of Lovercraft's stories used some kind of epistolary device. Some of his best set pieces involved recording or transmission of events. Kind of hokey in the face of it when the device was a drum recorder or microphone trailing a couple miles of cable, but potentially quite effective with modern tech.

But nothing on Abrams' resume suggest a potential for follow through so I suspect that he simply uses the mythos as window dressing for a giant monster movie.

So, at the end of the film we probably are still none the wiser.

Also...what the hell was in that top apartment of that building? a friggin Gas station?

I hope its godzilla 2 if it isn't Cthulhu. I think Godie 2 is more likely though. Let's face it, what are the chances of Cthulhu surviving the wrath of an American slacker whos' party has been disrupted :twak: *bad Cthulhu*? In Hollywood land? 0%

Has anyone seen the silent movie "the Call of Cthulhu"? Now that is what the mythos should be about: madness and impotence in the face of the unearthly :thumbsup:
