05.31.2017: Cloverfield Daikiaju Discussion

The Gang Covers Cloverfield (2008)

Welcome to another American kaiju film discussion! We don’t really have a lot of those, so I should play it up, right? This episode dives into the 2008 found footage epic Cloverfield. Gretchen, Rachel and Charles joined Kyle to discuss the film after a group viewing in the Kaijucast HQ. Overall, we do enjoy Cloverfield but we admit it has flaws (or at least things we don’t care for). Hopefully you’ll enjoy our brisk discussion of the movie.
