I saw it opening night, lured by the fact that the Star Trek teaser was scheduled to play in front of it more than anything else. But I really enjoyed Cloverfield, despite it giving me vertigo halfway thru the flick. Those last forty-five minutes were long. I thought it was an incredibly well-executed film for its premise. I thought the ending was perfect; who needs explanations for every little single detail? If they go thru with a sequel, I'm there with two tables of Dramamine by showtime.

I kinda thought the monster itself was a little lame, it was on these wierd stilts things that made it seem unnatural- i'd seen the image they posted around made it look like a big whale or something those images looked cooler than what it actually turned out to look like.

Cloverfield moster looked dumb but movie itself was interesting enough...

Oh man, I'm happy to see someone else liked the mock-up whale one more than the actual creature. I thought I was the only one!

Is Cloverfield any good? I just can't make myself go watch a movie filmed like The Blair Witch Project, it would make me car sick.

Or would it?

Well, for me I didn't get sick at all. I was just kind of annoyed at times when the camera took forever to stay still or focus on what the heck we were looking at, but I recommend you check it out. *If you're pregnant, don't see this film*

Honestly, it's been a while since I've seen Blair Witch but I'd say Cloverfield was a lot more intense with the shaky-cam action. After all, in BW the plot was kind of like a slow unraveling of events but in Cloverfield it's pretty action heavy. I don't want to warn you off the film because I thought it was awesome but you should know. Perhaps you should wait to rent in and watch it on a smaller screen instead.

Well, I don't think that would make all that of a difference. It would just make it harder to focus with something that intense on a smaller screen. Ofcourse I'm down to get it on DVD, but for sure I think first-timers of this film should see it in theatres.
