Cloverfield hits Manila theaters very soon!
In a few days, J.J. Abrams experiential monster flick, Cloverfield, finally hits local cinemas.
I am anxiously awaiting a chance to watch this film again, after being given the chance to do so by United International Pictures who included me in the list of those attending the press screening. While I noticed there were some who attended but didn't seem to bother to even blog about the event, I am happy to have been giving the chance to write about the movie and my experience watching it as well.
Again, I stress, for those looking for a movie with the typical Hollywoodisms, like military people talking to the President, scientists finding out the secrets of the monster just at the nick of time, and heroes who actually stand off against the rampaging beast and for some reason, are left alone and unharmed by it, then go rent out a copy of Roland Emmerich's Godzilla instead. But if you want to actually try something less spoonfeedish, then Cloverfield is a movie you should check out.
The year 2008 seems to be a very ripe year for fandom-related things to enjoy! And it can only get even better!
