Cloverfield will make you hurl

19Jan08

Not because of the part where the cute girl explodes in a splash of gore. Or because it sucks as a film (it doesn’t).

No, mainly because Cloverfield’s incessantly shaky cameras make The Blair Witch Project look like The f#@&ing Shining.

Thank god the movie’s less than 90 minutes long. My advice: Bring Dramamine or wait for Netflix. The director calls it “a monster movie for the YouTube generation” and I couldn’t agree more — it makes MUCH more sense to watch this on a small screen, so you won’t barf.

UPDATE: I’m not alone!
