Cloverfield

I forgot to do a little review on this flick. I heard so many different reactions about this film, and I finally rented it a week ago. Most I talked to hated it, and a few I talked to loved it. So, I went into it opened-minded and looking forward to it, because it definitely looked original. I have to say that I genuinely enjoyed Cloverfield. It was a great movie experience. It had the original feel to it with just one camera angle the whole time. It had a realistic feel to it, and it put you into the action. I thought it was a great scary flick, especially the scene in the tunnel, which if you've seen it, you know what I'm talking about. They basically had 4-5 actors that carried the movie, and I thought did a great job, and they were virtually no-name actors. I liked that it was like a modern-day, Americanized Godzilla flick. You can tell they definitely drew off of the Godzilla movies. I also went into the movie expecting it to be good because J.J. Abrams did it, who we have to thank for LOST. All in all, I loved it. It's not a buy for me. It's not something I want to watch again soon, but for me that's a very tiny list anyway. If you like suspense and intense movies, and you don't get motion-sick to easily, I would recommend it.

I'll have to check this movie out. I had heard of it, but didn't get a chacne to see it. Of course, if motion sickness is an issue, I'll have to watch it without Amy...
