'Cloverfield' Review By slysnide
"I wanted New York to have it's own monster, like Japan's got Godzilla."
The story is simple and nothing new. The acting's alright. The restriction of visuals is good for the story being told.
As for the overall quote: In an interview with the director, he stated that very thing I put in the overall quote, and I thought to myself: "Well, if I'm not mistaken (which I'm not) then there was this little '33 film called, oh what was it? Oh yeah yeah: KING KONG that glorifies New York as having it's own beast, and there were 2! Count 'em, 2! remakes w/in a century that made big bucks. So this director is out there!!!!
