So I just saw Cloverfield, and if you don't know what that is, well then I don't know why you're bothering reading this. You might be asking yourself, well Ryan, I certainly know what Cloverfield is, how was it? I would answer you by saying that it was exactly what I expected, nothing more, nothing less. The movie is seen through the eyes of a single handheld camcorder so it does suffer from The Blair Witch syndrome, however you get used to it pretty quick. Before you ask, yes you see the monster. What I can tell you is that it is not an epic monster movie, but rather the focus is on a group of friends and their attempt to make it out of Manhattan alive. I'm not going to go as far as to say that it is a milestone of modern cinema, but I will say that it is enjoyable and a pretty good popcorn movie, or in my case, Sprees (I used to love them when I was a kid and they all but disappeared from my meory when I spotted them in the candy aisle of my local Walgreens...yay me!). The only music in the film is heard during the going away party which comprises the bulk of the films first thirty minutes. I have to say that the filmmakers have pretty good taste in that department. Overall, a pretty good movie that is satisfying that will kill at the box office because of it's clever marketing've done it again J.J. Abrams! Now if only Lost coughed up some answers...
