    Well, I saw Cloverfield. I must say I enjoyed it thoroughly, although it was obvious that Skywalker Sound did the post-production sound for the movie (credits later confirmed), because there were numerous sound effects used in the Star Wars films.

    Uhh, did you pick that up from one post or the past 117 of mine posts stemming around me (already) working in showbiz?

    No, a hunch. And I was joking.

    Glad to hear it was good. I plan on seeing it Tuesday.

    Recently returned from the theater, immediate post-viewing impression is very positive.

    Saw it with a friend more interested in "finding out what the monster is," who said he was happy, but he got distracted pretty quickly after walking out into the cold.

    I went hoping for a compelling character-driven drama set in an unnatural place for mass-hysteria/terror . . . I left feeling quite fulfilled.

    added about an hour after the above:

    I'm trying to get a feel for what other folks think about the film, and I'm finding myself quite surprised that it seems quite a few thought the main characters were either shallow and/or immensely stupid . . . this seems, particularly, directed at the motivation behind most of who I would call the "main" character's decisions.

    I don't want to go into too much detail because the film just came out . . . but finding this criticism all over the place is pretty disappointing.

    I've not seen it yet since my movie buddy bailed on me this morning, but I've heard similar mixed reviews. I think I've prepped myself enough for what the thing is actually about and I am ready for it. I may end up going to see it myself tomorrow morning, just because I really want to see it. Most of my friends that I usually see movies with have loved it though.

    Up to this point, I had been intrigued with the trailers.

    My INTP son saw it last night and said I really needed to go see it. He said to sit closer to the back, however, or it might make me dizzy.

    I loved it. It pulled at my heart-strings throughout, though.

    I viewed a screening of this film on Friday evening.

    I didn't really like it very much. The plot was not very strong, the camera movements made me nauseous, there wasn't enough explanation of the monster itself, it was too short for such a movie, and there was to much of a viral advertisement frenzy.

    Nope but I would like to see 'There Will Be Blood'. Heard it's really good.
