Yes I suck. It took me this long to watch Cloverfield and I have to say I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. It’s very rare for me to actually care for characters in a film, usually I’m rooting for them all to die. When I watch romantic comedies with Jenni I’m always hoping for a bus crash. TV is the same way. Little House? I always wanted them to all catch smallpox and die. What can I say? I’m a jerk.
Back to Cloverfield. As I was watching the film I started caring about the characters. The monster was fantastic. I really like how you only got the glimpse here and there of the monster and then the big payoff.
If you haven’t seen it get it. That’s my recommendation.
