Big Screen: Cloverfield

Totally fun, exhilarating monster movie! Kind-of reminded me of “Signs” / one of those “you think it’s going to turn out to be psychological or Blair Witch-y but No! There are actual monsters! Yay!”

Now that I’ve seen it, I think the EW review was way off-base. The video backstory totally sucked me in and made me care about these characters. Very effective use of mostly little-known actors. Great New York destruction scenery. Thrilling, scary, (occasionally gross,) and awesome. I loved it. (My dad did too.)
