** Out of all the things you could have chosen to be on the TV in the electronics store, you chose WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants.''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants''.
** Hud's line "It's time to leave the electronics store" has incited a few chuckles from fans.



* UnintentionallySympathetic: Keeping in mind that the monster is a baby looking for its mom makes watching this movie an entirely different experience. It is sort of a tragic figure, but the fact that it's a terrified baby is actually supposed to ''add'' to its scariness. As one of the people working on the film put it: "There is nothing scarier than a really big thing that's been spooked".
** For that matter, if the monster is a baby, [[FridgeHorror then think about what the]] ''[[FridgeHorror mother]]'' [[FridgeHorror would look like]].
** There's also the fact that babies have ''enormous'' appetites, and in between spooking and running away, Clover has to stop and feed. And he's surrounded by tasty little treats - us.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Creator/MichaelGiacchino's "Roar! (Cloverfield Overture)." Basically, a ten-minute suite of what the music for this movie would have been, had there been a score, and done {{in the style of}} ''Film/{{Gojira}}'' composer Akira Ifukube.

* LoveItOrHateIt: Some fans praise the unique storytelling format, and others decry some of the characters' actions, the JitterCam and the lack of explanation about where the monster came from. People who like the movie think that the lack of explanation is entirely logical, and more or less ''the entire point'' of the movie.

* DirectorDisplacement: No, Creator/JJAbrams '''did NOT''' direct ''Cloverfield''. That goes to Matt Reeves. Unfortunately since Abrams is associated with [[Series/{{Lost}} a]] [[Series/{{Fringe}} whole]] [[Series/{{Alias}} slew]] [[Film/StarTrek of]] [[Film/{{Super 8}} friggin']] [[Film/TheForceAwakens projects]], Reeves is constantly not mentioned for directing the film.
