I was watching the film 'Cloverfield' the other night and right at the end, something caught my eye.
It's so subtle that you'd not really notice it if you were in a cinema, and if you've got it on DVD and seen it several times then it might not be
something you would be looking out for.
It is right at the end of the film. As the camera looks out to sea, you see a ship on the right side of the screen. To the left of it an object falls
from the sky and splashes down into the sea.
It is quite far out and appears to splash down very near to the horizon, so it must have been quite large.
The thing is, is this real or was it put in by the movie makers?
If it was put in by the film makers, why is it so unobvious? Why is it right at the end of the film? Why go to the extra effort of putting in
something that hardly anyone will see?
It literally is a couple of seconds and I bet a lot of you are going to be trying hard to spot it, asking what you should be looking at and many other
That's to be expected.. I've tried to show it the best I can in this small movie edit here. We know that all movies lose some quality once they have
been reformatted, editted, uploaded etc etc.. so if you've got the film on dvd then do take a look for yourselves and if you can get better quality
than I have here then please do add it to this thread.
We may never know what it is, but the fact remains that there is something here in this movie that made me curious.
With better quality, you will see it make a splash. There does appear to be some sea foam just below and to the right of where it splashes down, so
don't get confused with that bit. The splash happens just before the camera begins to pan back and you see the cage bars. You do see the splash here
but not as much as the original shows.
