I probably won't buy it, but it's definitely worth a watch for those people who like Sci-Fi. I'd give it a solid B.

Thats funny I did exactly the same thing. :-b

I thought it was OK...I understand why they filmed the entire movie from a hand held being that was the feel/look they were going for, but I didn't care for it too much. I think doing it like that was actually what turned most people off to it, the constant shaking jittery camera work was just annoying.

Like you I enjoyed it, not a bad way to waste a couple hours, but I wont be buying it or even watching it again.

I had the volume very loud which really added to it. If I didn't watch it on the big screen with blaring sound, I'm sure I wouldn't have liked it as much.

I know why you enjoyed it. Obviously you had a rookie phlebotomy technician, and they took too much blood. So, when you went home you were delirious. It all makes sense now.

Cloverfield sucked because it felt like an incomplete movie to me. It felt like a long DVD extra. I wanted the POV of the military, not the POV of some lovesick corporate yuppie. At the minimum, I wanted to know what the hell the title Cloverfield had to do with the movie at all. Eh, at least the movie was decent overall, besides the whole shaky cam gimmick, so I can't say it was a waste of my time.

Operation Cloverfield was the name the military gave to the operation that involved the monster, so it can be secret.

You must not have been paying attention. :-B

Honestly, the movie felt like a reality TV show at times, and I don't like most of them. I probably did miss it, along with a lot of other things, lol.

Saw the new Harold and Kumar. If you're worried about this being another disappointing sequel, don't be. This one is much more over-the-top and outrageous in every way possible, but it's still just as funny, if not moreso. It also has a bit more substantive of a plot. If you loved the last one, you'll more than likely love this one too.

8.5/10

So my friend talked me into going to see Forgetting Sarah Marshall...eh, it had some funny parts, I wouldn't watch it again. The british cracked me up a few times, but that's about where it ended for me. 6/10
