I'll take a small popcorn with butter, coke, and some bon bons. Oh, and some dramamine please

Last night the boy and I watched Cloverfield with a few of our friends. Here's a plot synopsis I pulled from IMDB: Five young New Yorkers throw their friend a going-away party the night that a monster the size of a skyscraper descends upon the city. Told from the point of view of their video camera, the film is a document of their attempt to survive the most surreal, horrifying event of their lives. I couldn't watch half the movie. I started to feel very nauseous. Because of the hand-held camera point of view, I had to look away from the screen every now and then, which really sucks because I missed seeing a lot of what was going on. I thought it was just me, but when I looked around the theater there were a lot of other moviegoers looking away too. Everyone I was with, except the boy, complained that they also felt nauseous. I seriously thought I was going to throw up there in the theater. The movie itself was alright. Nothing too exciting. Predictable.

Do you listen to the radio in the morning? I'm addicted to the Mikey Show (Rock 105.3) and they saw this a couple weeks ago. As soon as they said something about it being filmed with a handheld, I knew I wouldn't be able to see it because I'd get motion sickness.

yeah, the movie was okay - the more i think about it and talk with people about it, the more i am not impressed lol

all the shots you missed while looking away were probably just shots of their feet anyway, so don't feel bad! lol
