Cloverfield... I haven't seen it yet, but I'm reading the reviews. This is a spoiler, but I feel it's important enough to share without having even seen the movie. I have base expectations from movies, and this is one of them that, apparently, the movie doesn't meet.
Spoiler below. Quote post to read it (what freakin' color code do I use to match this blue background???).They didnt even give you insight as to what [the monster] was, where it came from, or anything.
I'm still going to see the movie, because the people that got over the shaky-cam still enjoyed it as a thriller. That filming style doesn't bother me too badly, so I'll be going but with lowered expectations.
