Ok, this has nothing to do with a video game, but has plenty to do with me being farking mad! I went and saw Cloverfield last night, late showing at like 11:15pm with my wife, our roomate, and our friend. It was…bad. Well, bad is not the way I would describe it. I can’t really describe it cause I spent a good chunk of the movie with a headache and the feeling of wanting to hurl.
Yea, the camera is bad. Jittery is a good word for it, and is not strong enough. Just THINKING about it makes my head hurt ugh. The characters were very cliched, the camera work was BAD (and done ON PURPOSE WHAT THE HELL WERE THESE RETARDS FUCKIN THINKING?!) and there was very little explanation. It had so much potential, but was ruined by guys who have seen the Blair Witch Project a few too many times I think.
If you watch the trailers, you expect to go see a Monster Movie, in the vein of Godzilla and the like. What you get is a character drama, and a poor one at that. The characters are so freakin cliched and stupid that I was rooting for the monster! Not that you ever get a good shot of him cause, once again, jittery and bad camera! The camera guy is farking stupid (And named HUD, LOL).
If you like Monster Movies, don’t waste your time. This is a “emotional drama” hidden as a monster movie.
They should have put a warning label as well – People prone to motion sickness / epilepsy should not come view this movie. I swear someone is gonna go into an epileptic seizure from this stupid movie.
What a waste of $10.
