Has anyone else who has seen Cloverfield think that the way the monster attacks New York is like the intro to FFX when Sin attacks Zanarkand? It comes out of the water which I guess is pretty much Godzilla but when the offspring fall from it's body and start attacking the humans, it really reminds me of those insect things at the beginning of FFX. I could even argue that the Cloverfield monster looks similar to Sin. I'll have to wait until images of the monster surface on the net. I know there are some Japanese references in the viral marketing but do you think the creators had any connection to the game?

From Wikipedia....

QUOTE
J. J. Abrams conceived of a new monster after he and his son visited a toy store in Japan while promoting Mission: Impossible III. He explained, "We saw all these Godzilla toys, and I thought, we need our own [American] monster, and not King Kong, King Kong's adorable. I wanted something that was just insane and intense."


And there you have it wink.gif I think its quite a stretch to say that the opening of Cloverfield and the monster are direct references to FFX, seeing that there are so many other references to draw from.

Lol, I draw this exact same reference. When the things fell off, I thought in my head "Whoa, those are like Sinspawn." About at the same time, my best friend leaned over and said, "Sinspawn!" I laughed pretty hard at that. We tend to think alike biggrin.gif

I don't know if this is a real picture of the monster but it does look like the monster. And there are definite similarities to Sin. It was hard to see the monster in the first place.

It doesn't even look close to Sin in the movie. That illustration must be an earlier concept, because that doesn't look like it either.

I haven't even seen the movie, but I did see a picture of the monster, and the first thing I was thought was "It's Sinzilla." >.> (and the image I saw of it wasn't like the one above btw)

But I haven't seen the movie so.. y'know! =]

The thought definatly came into my head as well. But I am pretty sure that the creator's of Sin derived Sin from something else. I am pretty sure there are a good pleanty of aincient mythological beasts that are aquatic and ultraspawning.

My husband and I saw it, and he said that when you FIRST see the monster, when all you see is his back or whatever, that it RESEMBLES sin....but once you see the monster, it diffinantley does NOT look like him.

I told him he plays too many video games too xD
