Captive State

Good movie. John Goodman. Now available for rent/download.

Continuation of the Cloverfield movies.

Aliens have now taken over and control the world.

Story of a small resistance group.

Entertaining.

I watched the trailer. I was all about it, until I saw $5.99!

Looks pretty cool, is it $5.99 worth of cool with all the other stuff out there?

I justify all movie rentals on the "would I spend that much at starbucks?" scale of cost.

John Goodman was in Cloverfield Lane too, another offshoot of the Cloverfield universe. I am liking this lore already.......

I never watched Cloverfield, so when I saw 10 Cloverfield Lane, the ending was a complete suprise, which was awesome.

I would reccomend watching 10 Cloverfield Lane because it was a well done movie, especially if you didn't know anything about the first one.

Don't think this movie has anything to do with the Cloverfield movies.

Technically is not part of the sane franchise. But many viewers, and I would agree, say it is of the same genre and the story ties in well as a continuation down the road in the future from the Cloverfield movies. It fits.

I actually thought from the trailer that John Goodman's character was going to be a continuation of 10 Cloverfield, 10 years later or whatever. I was disappointed they weren't connected, but it was a cool movie none the less.

Same here. John Goodman is a good actor, that is for sure.

This was a good movie. I watched it last night. Goodman did a damn good job acting in this one. Thanks for the recommendation brother.

Always makes you wonder, if we ever really had a Alien invasion, would they look at us like aliens they could build unity with, control, be friends with , even go to war with? .....or would they view us with about as much emotional attachment as we have when we kill a fly or an ant?


The look on the faces of the AR15.com and Black Rifle Tactical fanboys, that have been equipping their AR, stocking up on mags and ammo throughout the years, when they realize their ARs do nothing to the invading aliens.

Just watched it. Reminded me of 'Colony' (which was cancelled, which sucks). A tad slow, but the intrigue was cool. I liked the ending.
