Cloverfield movie review

Cloverfield_theatrical_poster.jpg

So I want it to be known that I actually like this movie quite a bit. I’m a sucker for found footage and apocalypse movies. That being said I have to shit all over this because it is not a good movie. Fun? Sometimes! Original? Meh… Good monster? Well, kinda. Likeable? For some reason! Good? Hell no! So the premise of Cloverfield is very simple. A monster from somewhere attacks New York for some reason. A group of friends consisting of the funny/stupid guy, and a ball of pointless relationship drama venture out to save their friend. Like I said, this movie is enjoyable for reasons I can’t figure out. But, if you turn off your brain and focus on the carnage you will enjoy most of this! But, it’s also rittled with shit. It’s found footage so the camera work is fucking terrible. Not JUST terrible though… You can never see anything. T.J. Miller (I don’t know his name in the movie but he was funny) films everything in this movie, but when cool stuff is going down he screams and points the camera at the ground… The plot is nearly unfollowable even though it is stupid simple, and the end is shit… On the bright side you get to see a monster destroy NYC whenever the guy holding the camera calms the fuck down!
