Cloverfield

   15 December 2008, mid-afternoon

I watched Cloverfield Saturday morning. The movie is a sort of modern day Godzilla flick, but set in New York. It’s filmed in a style similar to the Blair Witch Project. The premise is that you are watching a tape obtained in the aftermath of this event. The movie starts at a fellows going away party, and quickly picks up pace as the alien attacks and a small group of friends race off to try and rescue a friend (and love interest). I though it was a pretty good film, though reviews for the movie were very mixed The production values are high and it’s very well choreographed. Some people will probably complain about how little about the monster is fleshed out. I don’t think this detracts from the movie. I actually want to watch it again to see what I missed the first time through, the film is so hectic at times.

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
