Robin's already losing it out there, isn't he?

Oh, dear. That could be very good, or that could be very, very bad. Well, he has that and I have Diary of the Dead, so we should be content for quite some time.

I was seriously impressed with Cloverfield. Nauseous, but impressed.

That's what you get for being 12 hours ahead of us. I've been tempted, but it all depends upon the Czarina. Back when we were both married to other people, her now-ex-husband was the person who turned me on to The Blair Witch Project, and I managed to snag enough preview passes for the critics' screening in Dallas so the two of them and my now-ex-wife could watch it with me. The Czarina shares with my mother the ability to get violently seasick when watching documentaries on yachting, and she almost needed to be carried out of the theater after the preview. If Cloverfield is as bad with the Sam-O-Cam camera jiggles, there's no way she'd be able to watch it on a big screen.

I suspect she will have motion sickness problems. I did and so did Rob, but we're just such sad fans that we held back our barf & kept watching. if you do go, pick a very large cinema and sit in the back row.

Saw an advance screening of this the other night. Pretty cool, eh? Godzilla meets Blair Witch, but it works.

sure does! saw a trailer for another movie that looks cool too -- Jumpers. made me think of your Doorways for the Dispossessed story. Different premise, but some similar ideas at play.

Did I manage to see a different film to everyone else? It did nothing for me. Went in expecting spectacle and came out feeling jaded and disappointed.
I nearly fell asleep and I never do that in cinemas!

Cloverfield's alternative approach to spectacle was what made it interesting for me. Not that I have anything against Hollywood blockbusters, its just nice to get something different ooccasionally.

See once I'd seen the clever video trick and thought, "Yep, clever," I was then waiting for something else. I suppose I expected the plot to be equally new and interesting. Silly me.
Even though the monster was very well done, I remained unmoved. Unless that was b/c it had turned me to stone, in which case, Woo hoo!

I take it you're the husband with the good taste? :-)
On January 18th, 2008 11:51 pm (UTC), richardjones replied:
Indeed.

And to add something of actual value to this thread - one of the reasons I really liked it was that I felt much more involved in the film, since usually I'm just an observer of some people on screen doing stuff.

It had the feel of a good Cthulu-esque roleplaying session :)

Cloverfield is all about emotions. I loved the device of having the recording of the couple's happy day together underneath the monster rampage footage. Yeah, I felt like I was there.
