** Not only that but, at a certain point in that scene, when they're moving through a slanted hallway, she clearly throws the heels away in order to balance. Barely a minute after that, when they pull Beth off of the steel pole, she looks to be inexplicably wearing either gold flats or those translucent socks/tights that only go over your toes and soles (which, as you see when she is walking up the stairs, heels in hand, she was not wearing all night). Explain that one.

** The Blu Ray extras do give the creature a name (well, more like a military designation), the LSA or Large Scale Aggressor.

** I'd say it's about the job. Some characters point out Rob has been in love with Beth since college and that she loves him too. They never expressed their feelings until one month before Rob is due to leave for Japan. I guess he thinks it is less painful to completely ignore her and leave than keep seeing her for a month with the knowledge the relationship is doomed.

** It most likely would be a last resort. Nothing they've thrown at Clover is killing it. Similar to [[Film/TheAvengers The Avengers]], the nuke would most likely be in case the force is either too large or too durable to contain.

** Simple bad luck? Meant to call her the next day, got busy and forgot. Forgot to call her the day after. Thought about calling her day three, thought she might be mad after he didn't call her for two days. Forgot about calling her day four. Really wanted to call day five, but paralyzed with fear about what he would say, what she would say, how he was going to explain forgetting about calling the super-hot girl he slept with for four days. Day six, convinced she'd never want to hear from him ever again, et cetra, so on, yadda yadda. . .

** Well, the US military does have a plan in place in case of ZombieApocalypse (http://www.cnn.com/2014/05/16/politics/pentagon-zombie-apocalypse/). Granted, this is more a thought experiment to teach military officers to think outside the box, to learn to deal with OutsideContextProblems, but it is there. It may well be that the US government in the Cloverfield verse (and potentially, our 'verse as well) is CrazyPrepared.

Added DiffLines:

*** IT was a tape. Rob's brother gave Hud the video-camera to use, I believe the camcorder was actually Rob's camera, at the party when he notices Hud is using his own camera, he immediately asks Hud "What tape did you use?!", he was upset because he knew it contained the footage from his day with Beth. In any case, Hud responds with 'the tape that was already in the camera. IIRC, the video pauses to show us a shot of Beth, when Hud opens the camera to check which tape is in it.

** I could have sworn that I saw a point of the film where Lily was holding the shoes in her hands and walking barefoot. But if she wasn't then maybe she felt confident enough to walk in heels rather than barefoot amid rubble and broken glass. And she could have just been distracted by the fact that they were in two collapsing buildings to think about grabbing another pair of shoes.






to:

\n\n** Didn't she get bitten while they were still in the subway? Maybe they just wanted to get out of there first before seeing to her. And they found a field hospital almost right after they got out, so they just thought it best that professionals give her first aid instead.





to:

** Why force them to stay there? They could cause a lot of disruption or panic if they tried to force them to stay. If they want to run out into the danger zone then let them.




to:

** Where else would Marlena have gone? At the start she goes with everyone else because they're all heading to the Brooklyn Bridge but then when that's destroyed, that's when the 'let's save Beth' plan comes up. At that point there's no obvious place for them to go if they want to get rescued. So it sort of looks like Marlena just tagged along because she didn't want to be stuck on her own with no idea of what to do. Generally in a crisis situation, people often feel better by actually doing something than just waiting around. So Marlena's thinking may have been just to do something that had a goal - reaching Beth and finding out if she was alright - and hopefully along the way would find some kind of help or information about what to do next.




to:

** Was it to do with the job? Rob was about to move for his new job. So there may have been tension there about him sleeping with Beth right before he's about to move.
