Saw Cloverfield last night, my son rented it.  Went in with very low expectations and came out thinking it was OK.  I did like the way it was shot, it pulled me in a bit more than a typical King Kong or Godzirra movie would, it's easy to detach from those.  For some reason I felt like, yeah, that's what it would be like trying to survive while some big arse monster stomped around the city.

Here's a little exchange after about 20 minutes of character building:

jonzr:  I thought this was supposed to be a monster movie.
son:  They're just building the characters so you'll feel sad when they die.
jonzr:  I hate them all.
son:  They're just building the characters so you can laugh when they die.

A touching moment squeezed in between Father's Day and his birthday. That's what it's all about.

Like my 5 year old son telling his buddy to "Shut the pie!" during their heated Wii golf match today.
