J.J. Abrams' Cloverfield is undoubtedly one of the most buzzed about movies in recent Hollywood history, especially for something so low budget and "small", in comparison to summer blockbuster standards that is. In just over 6 months time, since the very first trailer debuted, director Matt Reeves has shot an entire monster movie that takes place in the streets of New York City. And now it's finally here and the monster has finally been revealed. Does it live up to the hype? How does it stack up in comparison to other monster movies?
Just drop by, leave a comment, and create some discussion! To fuel the fire, I loved Cloverfield because of how unique and entertaining it was, despite not fulfilling my exact expectations (of a huge blockbuster flick). Although you can read my review, I think Cloverfield will generate quite a polarized response from fans because too many people are expecting something much bigger. But the reason why I loved it is because it was so different and told in such a unique way. Cloverfield was incredible, it did live up to the hype, and has set the grounds for all monster movies to come. Do you agree?
