Y'know, I really didn't want to like Cloverfield, but I did. In fact, I would go so far as to say it was sort of awesome. I don't mean it's the best movie I've seen in years or anything, but... it just did its thing so darn well. "Its thing" being a big helping of Godzilla a la Blair Witch, if you get my drift. So if you like that sort of thing at all, it's a must-see. The only thing is,
don't go expecting a happy ending, 'cause it ain't happening. Also, don't expect any big explanation of what the heck that... thing... is doing here. Kind of refreshing, really.

Huh, I hadn't planned on seeing it, but reading the review in the New Yorker gave me the impression (perhaps wrong!) that the video is found in a future after the destruction had passed (in Cloverfield, as Central Park becomes known). I took away from that that the ending was like The Handmaid's Tale, if you know what I mean.
