Because I completely suck at getting out to the theater to see movies while they’re there, I just got around to watching Cloverfield today.
Which might be just as well, because I’m not sure I would have been able to deal with this on the big screen, in the dark, unable to pause. Because aside from the constant, unrelenting dogg you think this is bad wait till you see what happens to these poor bastards next feeling of impending doom, this is about the most depressing fucking movie I’ve seen in a long time. That there was some amazing CG, though. I mean, damn. Watching the various making-of bits on the DVD gave me a CG-nerd boner the size of Montana.
Anyway. The short and completely spoiler-free summary:
Everything: La la la funny la la la cute la la la
Huge Fucking Monster: O HAI IM IN UR BIG APPLE TEARIN SHIT UP
Everything: DOOM DE DOOM DOOM DOOM DE DOOMY DOOMY DOOM! DOOM! DOOM DE DOOMY DOOMY DOOM! DOOM DOOM DOOMdoomdoomdoomdoomDOOM! The end!
The slightly longer version:
