We just got back a little while from seeing Cloverfield. Uhmm wow. It was scary, it was realistic. JJ Abrams really got a flair for what New York would look like if it got attacked by a giant monster.
What I really liked is there were no experts trying to explain it. It was happening and everyone had to deal with it. What really struck me was as I watched it reminded me of 9/11 and the blackout. I am not going to say anymore, because I don't want to spoil it. But I'll say this ... it was not a My Little Ponies movie.
