Cloverfield was great! It’s definitely one of the better movies I’ve seen in recent years. I thought it was a breath of fresh air. Some people complain about how much the camera was shaking, but I just felt like it added to the realism. I love how realistic it all felt (sans the monster of course) and I’ve also heard some people say it was the worst ending ever, but I thought it was good. It ended at exactly the right time. I think it was a pretty brave decision to shoot the movie the way they did, but it just added to the overall experience and it wouldn’t have been Cloverfield if they didn’t.
It lived up to my expectations, which says a lot!
