How Godzilla Inspired Cloverfield (2008) | Retrospective & Review

A video going over how Cloverfield (2008) is the U.S. equivalent to the original Gojira (1954). More than just a giant monster movie, this J.J Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) produced and Matt Reeves (War for the Planet of the Apes) directed found footage film also works as an analogy and catharsis for a national tragedy, in this case the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
