So I just saw Cloverfield.

I just saw it, and I'm afraid to say I didn't like it.

It's mostly my fault, I'm quite the chicken when it comes to seeing scary movies in the theaters. So as you know this would impact my liking of the movie, but I thought what the hell, it's a monster movie, it shouldn't be that scary... I was wrong. Cloverfield is about a monster and some spider things terrorizing New York City. First of all the beginning of the movie is boring, but that can be forgiven... Because the rest of the movie is non-stop chaos. I was eager for the action to start... But after a while the adrenaline took my by storm. The constant screaming and swerving of the camera didn't help either. But regardless of this, I made it through the movie. And for a monster movie this disappointed me, it just wasn't what I thought it would be like. Overall I recommend it, if you're into adrenaline packed movies like this one... Or just plain like monster movies. Just be warned, it may not be what you thought it would be like. Or at least for me.

Overall: Too much action for my liking.

I haven't seen it, but my Dad says it wasn't too great either.

I think its all just hype, like Blair With project (which was basically the same style, apparently.

Blair Witch was a great movie for me, don't know why I didn't like Cloverfield.

Blair Witch was great in my opinion too, but doesn't necessarily have a good review. The reason it is so popular is because quite a few people thought it was real.

Ill watch Cloverfield tonight or tomorrow and let you know what I think.

Disappointing.. Just watched it. it was good. But not good as I was hoping. The idea of having it filmed like the Blair With project, home-made style, just made the movie not as good.

This movie sucked, I turned it off after the first 30 minutes. It would have been good if the camera didn't shake constantly like the blair witch movie.
