Cloverfield: The New Monster Film

Patrol Magazine has a nice review of Cloverfield, the cleverly-marketed Manhattan monster film that just hit theaters. Musings about the evolving role of digitized special effects in sci-fi movies, with implications for LOST (another brainchild of Cloverfield producer J.J. Abrams), are thrown in for free.

Steve McCoy of Reformissionary also has a first-person Cloverfield take, having sacrificially taken in an early showing... Steve liked what he saw, and thought all the internet teasers set the tone well.

Neither review contains spoilers, although Patrol Magazine gives away a little about the monster(s). Cloverfield sounds worth seeing.
