I am so sick... so so motion sick. ^_^;
I am soooo glad I didn't see Cloverfield in the movie theater. I would have barfed for sure. However, being a monster movie buff, I won't say aficionado, but I've see many if not all of the Godzilla shows. The old ones where the best. But anyway, I really wanted to see this show. Of course, if you know anything about this movie, you'll know it was filmed in "shaky cam." As if someone was holding a hand held recorder.
I would not have made this film any different. This sort of "first person shooter" style almost plot-less film would not have been immersive if the camera was steady at all. Now, I just want to say, even if I was being chased by a giant monster, I think I could have held the camera steadier. But the difference is like watching a roller coaster from the ground. Versus being ON the roller coaster!
My favorite scene? When the guy holding the camera for most of the movie, Hud, gets eaten! Woah, yeah! You just don't get to ride into the jaws of a monster like that! I'm so glad I have surround sound. ^_^;
This movie was almost as fun as "Alien" when I saw it for the first time.
But man, I... am... so... sick right now... gggllgglarg!!!
