Default Cloverfield...

not as bad as I thought.
It kept me intrested. Makes you feel as if you are in the film and the fast action and drama keeps your intrest.
The ending of it tho could have been better

I haven't seen it yet. I will rent it as soon as I can. I already know the basics about the ending though.

Be sure to search out the hidden Easter Eggs on the DVD, there are quite a few to find!

I held off seeing it in theaters cause I was worried I'd get seasick like I did in Blair Witch. Is the camera movement that whacky?

We rented it this weekend, the Video store gets it one week early. As for motion sickness I didn't, maybe because it was not on the big screen.

It's nowhere near as bad as BLAIR WITCH was, even on the big screen. In any case, the trick is to sit farther back in the theater if that's a worry for you, then the wide image can't engage your peripheral vision, which is what can trigger motion sickness.

For that reason, you should have no problem watching it on the small screen at home. There are a few jumpy shots here and there in the action, but it's actually filmed much more smoothly than BW was, certainly more professionally.

Btw, all you monster movie fans... be sure to stick through the end credits and listen to Michael Giacchino's "Roar" Overture... the only score music in the film. Very reminiscent of all the classic GODZILLA scores and such "we" grew up watching (as the filmmakers did). It's another great composition by MG, and portends well for his score of TREK.

I viewed it in the theater and sat in the back row. No problems with motion sickness, but watching it was indeed a workout. Looking forward to the DVD.

I was quite disappointed seeing on the big screen. I think it's better suited for the small screen.

I have never been more terrified watching that movie in theatres.
My friends were trying to keep talking about the Trek XI trailer so they wouldn't get scared.
Quite funny.
