Cloverfield

Cloverfield. Go see it.

This movie was simply fantastic. Make sure the theater you see it in has a good sound system. I know that I'll probably be in the minority here, but I wanted nothing more from this film. It lived up to the hype.

When the credits started to roll and the lights came up, the biggest surprise for me was the amount of people in the theater saying "That sucked" or "I want my money back." I'll admit, monster movies aren't for everyone and the shaky camera shit gets old real quick. But, for my dollar, Cloverfield's the best movie I've seen in the theater in several years.

I think the real problem people had with the flick was the complete lack of explanation about numerous things. For months people have been saying "What is Cloverfeild? Where did it come from?" The movie doesn't answer a lot of these questions, but the amount of explanation given was true to the story that was being told. I appreciated that.

I'll have a full review up of Cloverfield in about six month, after the DVD comes out. I wouldn't want to spoil it for anyone. If you have any interest in this movie, I urge you to avoid all spoilers and go see it quick.

Just bring the Dramamine if you're prone to that sort of thing.
