We may not have a giant Kaijus but this week's Back to the Movies packs a mean Godzilla sized punch in our review of 2016's biggest surprise, 10 Cloverfield Lane. It may not have much in common with it's predecessor, but that doesn't stop us from talking conspiracies, remembering the original, or discussing our spiderweb crazy theories.

We're joined again by Dalton Stuart to talk about our memories with the 2008 Cloverfield before delving into our reviews and recommendations. In order to keep you spoiler free and ripe for the filmgoing experience, we keep our initial review on a tight lockdown of any real plot points. 

10 Cloverfield Lane stayed under tight wraps at Bad Robot Productions under the code name Valencia based on a script titled The Cellar before being officially announced January 15 of this year. The film's shocking announcement less than 2 months before its release has been the talk of the internet and it's minimal marketing and projected success could effectively make it the Beyonce of the film industry.

J.J. Abrams has run a tight shift as producer by keeping all of this film's secrets tightly under wraps. We don't want to spoil any of the fun, but here's a basic synopsis. After an accident, Howard (John Goodman) takes Michelle (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) to his underground bunker and refuses to let her leave because of an incident that has occurred on the outside.
