It reminded me of the spoof of Blair Witch Project my friends and I made as a freshmen in high school. We were at the beach and we called it "the Galveston Alien Project." We had ketchup blood and everything. Same concept with a few more fireworks. I would be fine with it if it were at least smart but it seemed like a movie to show off special effects. I didn't much like the characters and they end up dying before you get to know them well anyway. I heard lots of good things about this movie when it came out. To my friends who enjoyed it: What were you thinking? Thus ends my rant on Cloverfield.

Cloverfield aka The Galveston Alien Project
Tomorrow I say goodbye to my home of one year. Tonight before I finished packing I wanted to curl up and watch a movie. The only problem with that is my Netfllix are in the mail and everything else is packed. Thank you faithful friend Video On Demand. I've been wanting to watch Cloverfield since it came out so I stretched out on the couch with a bed pillow and a sheet. (Blankets and Sofa pillows are packed.) I pushed play with my bowl of low fat no sugar added ice cream in my lap. I must say it is in my top ten list of movies not to watch followed by How to Deal and 2001 Space Odyssey. Don't get me wrong, I usually love sci-fi but this was terrible.
