So, I sat down about two hours ago to write up a brief little introduction to my interviews with J.J. Abrams, Dan Trachtenberg, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.  These were originally recorded for IGN last week and I think they came out really well.

What happened when I began to write is what sometimes, if I’m lucky, happens — I just kept writing.  My short little intro to the videos became 1200 words on why I really like “10 Cloverfield Lane” and don’t get the (admittedly not large) group of critics who disliked it.  As I say there, everyone is entitled to their own opinion but as it says up top on this site, “here on this blog you will find my thoughts and opinions.  Feel free to argue, but rest assured that I am right.”

“10 Cloverfield Lane” isn’t perfect but it is smart and clever and funny.  What’s more, I want to see more movies in the same vein and more in the franchise (and I say this not having loved the first one).  So, as I go off and change that piece around and polish it a little, check out the interviews I did for the movie last week.  The first one is Abrams alone and the second one is a combo of the Trachtenberg/Winstead ones.
