CinemaSins continues to remind us that no movie is without sin. This week in their “Everything Wrong With” series, the YouTube giant takes on “10 Cloverfield Lane.”

“This ‘Cloverfield’ ‘cousin’ or ‘sequel’ or ‘whatever’ basically has nothing to do with ‘Cloverfield,’” says the description in the video. “But it’s still an entertaining little film. Here are its sins.”

It’s first offense comes right at the beginning of the thriller because, “the movie literally opens with five seconds of silent black screen before launching into the logos.” The 10-minute clip also lets viewers know right from the start that this version is nothing like the 2008 “Cloverfield” and questions various decisions made by the creators. 

The video points out an interesting scene where the time is different when shown on Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s cell and car radio, it also judges her for not bandaging her head after the accident and jots down a sin for John Goodman not telling her the truth from the start.
