What's The Deal With Cloverfield?
It's a monster-attacks-New York City movie, right? And the cinematography is in the same spirit of "Blair Witch Project" which, in my opinion, is one of the the worst films ever made - and I don't say that because of the shaky-jerky style of camera work. "Blair Witch" fails on so many levels that I would have to devote a separate post to it and that's something I'm not going to do.
So - who's seen Cloverfield? Is the monster actually shown? Do you get some good looks at it?
UPDATE: Okay...I went HERE and read a bunch of reviews. All I can say now is my desire to see "Cloverfield" has been halved. And don't click on that link if you don't want to be informed of "spoilers".
UPDATE 2: Someone please tell me that "Cloverfield" is NOT some type of a Transformer. Jeebus H. KeeRighst!
UPDATE 3: Uh...so Cloverfield is a Sea Monster?!
Happy new year my friend!
Happy New Year to you and yours, too! I'm afraid I haven't had time to visit all those wonderful blogs on my blogroll as frequently as I'd like - but I did manage to stop by your place for a visit yesterday. Stay in touch! Thanks for visiting and commenting, as always.
I'll probably see it when the crowd dies down a bit. I may as well since I've read the spoilers and it really can't disappoint me.
Hows the post-operative foot surgery comin' along? You ready to hit all the bars in downtown Mpls?
The mining for satire of Cloverfield is endless. A giant - well, bigger than she already is - Rosie O'Donnell stomping all over NYC and crushing the buildings in her search for more Krispy Kreme donuts. Michael Moore leveling Detroit in his search for Entenmann's donuts. Joy Behar's hips bringing skyscrapers down to street level while searching for hair coloring.
Damn....these things write themselves.
