    Cloverfield movie?

    Has anyone seen the Cloverfield movie? I have seen the ads and think it looks kind of neat, doing a wiki shows a short plot summary and a bunch of internet hype around its release. Any thoughts?
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I'm gonna see it sometime this weekend. Looks like it could be good, or, at worst, entertaining.

    Hand held camera, no lines, ad libbing by unknown actors... all the ingredients for a gigantic bomb.

    Saw the movie last night. It was pretty good. I was unaware of the hand held camera part going in, so that took a lil getting used to. But you get used to it, well at least I did. As far as the no lines part goes, I really don't think thats the case at all, if so, these are some amazing actors. And you get to see plenty shots of the "thing". More and more and the movies goes on. The movie does a good job at keeping you interested throughout. But it does have one of those abrupt endings that don't sit well with some people. But overall, I enjoyed the movie, and I'd recommend it.

    My son went to the midnight showing of it last night.

    He said it was fairly plotless, dumb, and short (like 80 minutes). The hype is way above the quality of the movie.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    It was short, but when it ended, it didn't feel like it was short, not to me. And plotless? Did he even watch the movie? He was probably one of those kids that was using the free camera's flashes to make flash puppets of their middle fingers on the screen. I guess I just don't pay attention to the hype of movies. But the movie went pretty much as expected as far as expectations go.

    sounds like I AM LEGEND with a much smaller budget...

    My son and I just saw it. Best film I've seen in a long time. My son liked it a lot, too.

    It also generated the most conversation I've ever heard after a movie. Most of the people speaking out didn't like it. Should be interesting to see the buzz.

    Star Trek fans should watch for the Star Trek trailer that precedes the film.
