Cloverfield January 19, 2008

Posted by Mitchell in Art, Science Fiction & Fantasy.

So, after I did my civic duty and did the caucus thing (see my comment over at Bmac’s if you’re curious) I went to the movies to see Cloverfield.  My one word review:  Huh!  Another member in the audience had a one word review at the end too:  “Boo.”

It wasn’t what I expected, although I’m not sure what I was expecting.  Overall I really liked it and it was really very suspenseful.  Even more so than usual for me because I was having a mild anxiety attack during the whole thing too.  The anxiety thing wasn’t related to the movie though – I started feeling weird before I even got to the casino.  Anyway –  a good movie if extremely unconventional.  I think that’s what was the real surprise for me.  I wouldn’t have guessed you could get a major nationwide released movie made this way.  I hate movie spoilers, so I won’t say anything more about it.
