CLOVERFIELD What can I say? I dug it.
It was what it claimed to be: A studio's version of BLAIR WITCH. It was an "Independent Film" conceit made with the budget of a studio behind it. I loved the premise of a disaster movie shot/told entirely through the lens of a little hand-held video camera of a person who happens to be at the event as it unfolds. Certainly Innovative; which happens to be one of my theme words for this year. Also loved that they used unknown actors. (This movie certainly would not have worked using recognizable faces). My one note: I would have liked it better if it ended one story beat earlier (at the spot where it seemed like it would end). --I don't want to give away any spoilers. But overall. Loved it!
