Movie: 10 Cloverfield Lane – A Different Look

*This post, and the article it references, contains plot spoilers*

If you were one of the people who saw 10 Cloverfield Lane, you might have also been one of the many people who were unhappy with the ending to the movie.  Many complained that what started out as a great suspenseful, post-apocalyptic, escape saga with characters weaving a questionable back-story, ended with a seemingly misplaced sci-fi/alien battle.

After watching the movie myself, I was later trying to explain it to a friend and couldn’t think of the name so I hit up google for help.  After entering in some generic search terms I found the title, but I also saw the link for Tasha Robinson’s article, The 10 Cloverlfield Lane Backlash is Missing the Point, for The Verge. Intrigued, I clicked the link and found a great alternative view about the ending and the movie in general.  While it is lengthy – an essay rather than an article – if you are willing to give your time it really is a great read.

Take a look here.
