Late Night Reflections on Cloverfield (too tired for more clever title)

Lets get down to brass tacks, Cloverfield is neither the spastic mess I feared it would be, nor is it the ground-breaking classic some have touted it to be. It's a ride, pure and simple. Your mileage and excitement on this ride will vary. I can't foresee purchasing this film on DVD or even hitting it again in theaters, but I will say I'm glad I saw it opening night at midnight in New York City. It made walking out of the theater a few blocks from Columbus Circle (a very important locale in the film) kind of fun and taking the subway across the Brooklyn Bridge kind of terrifying. I will update with more later when I'm not exhausted.
