Did you spot the object in the background falling in to the sea in the last few frames?

I thought it was the director having a dump considering how bad Cloverfield was:D and I saw it in a cinema.

Valkyrie 4/10.. it was terrible. Not even a poor attempt at a German accent, Tom Truise being Tom Cruise. hi, I'm tom cruise the nazi now wheres my f-14 tomcat and iceman?
Stauffenberg was much better.

none of them had accents that was how they did it. WHat you linked to was just a documentary. Would you not also complain if they had german accents but spoke English ? like they did that ;)

It takes a few goes to spot it but once you do you see it each time, it hits the water a few 'millimeters' below the horizon and comes from an almost vertical drop.

I think they should have used 'Allo 'Allo style accents, to be properly authentic.

The movie started in German and then phased into English I found it quite adequate and really enjoyed the movie :) . I would certainly have rather seen Daniel Craig in Defiance speak as himself than his epic fail of keeping an accent but that did not spoil the film for me and found that excellent

Which would mean we are all entitled to our opinion and though mine differs from yours I'll resist the temptation to retort. Each to their own as is said. :)

Am i the only one who felt physically sick watching that?

Soo many fast/blurry camera movements.

Nooo! A few moments after that it cut back to the video the recorded over of the 2 of them six weeks earlier on a giant wheel in a fairground. The camera points out to sea for a few seconds and you see something hit the water.

This suggests that the monster was an alien and that's when it came to Earth.

That was meant to be a falling satellite, not the monster.

Viral tie-ins

As part of the viral marketing campaign, the drink Slusho! has served as a tie-in. The drink had already appeared in producer Abrams' previous creation, the TV series Alias.[39] Viral websites for Slusho! and a Japanese drilling company named Tagruato (タグルアト ,Taguruato?) were launched to add to the mythology of Cloverfield. A building bearing the company logo for Tagruato can also be seen in the TV spot of the eleventh Star Trek film, another Abrams production.[5] When Cloverfield was hosted at Comic-Con 2007, gray Slusho! T-shirts were distributed to attendees.[40] Fans who had registered at the Slusho! website for Cloverfield received e-mails of fictional sonar images before the film's release that showed a deep-sea creature heading toward Manhattan.

Satellite crashes > disturbs deep sea monster. Something like that...

Yep, I spoke to my wife last night, she had spent a while during the day on the net investigating the object. The opinion she got too was that it was the satellite hitting the sea, and causing the monster to wake up.

She also mentioned directions the prequel/sequel will take. One theme would be events leading to the crashing of the satellite, another the attack from the viewpoint of the army, and how they battled it.
