I must say...going to the movies...ain't cheap nowadays, even the matinee movie ticket has gone up quite a bit! After shelling out $15++ for 2 matinee movie tickets and another $18++ for popcorn, mochi-crunch and 2 sodas, the "Chinese" in me started to grumble silently under my breath! I can just imagine how much the regular non-matinee movie tickets cost...grrrrr...
Last weekend, was the 1st of many more 3-day weekends to come, so R and I decided to go on a movie date. He let me choose...I'd wanted to see either 27 Dresses or The Bucket List, but the showing times were just a 'lil too late in the day, so I settled on Cloverfield. I was rather curious from the trailer I'd seen the last time we were at the movies and back then the movie didn't even have a title yet! An attack on New York City by something that kinda looked like a giant monster...now who could resist that? I've not seen the more recent trailers like R has...so he started to say...
R: You sure? We can watch something else...
R: Don't grumble and say we're watching "my kind" of movie coz I am letting you pick...
R: Ohh, be prepared. You might get sick.
Me: Why? Will there be a lot of blood and gory things happenin? Won't it be somewhat like God-zilla?
R: Umm...it's shot like the movie, Blair Witch...
Me: BLUR LOOK. That wasn't so scary.
R: Not sick like horror scary but more like motion sickness and a possible headache.
Me: Still blur...
Overall, I really did (for real, I did!!) enjoy the movie minus the slight pain in my eyes from concentrating so hard on what was going on. After 15 minutes into the movie, I finally get R's point about getting sick 'coz the whole movie relies on the first person perspective to tell it's story and was shot with hand-held cameras! Okay, so I'm a tad bit slow to catch his point, but I'm not like that all the time, only SOMETIMES and only when it involves movies! Can't help it when your better half can correctly guess what's going to happen in a movie or a TV show before it does and sometimes spoil it for you. In addition, I think I do suffer some motion sickness as I can't for the life of me read in a moving car without feeling sick. Anywaes, I won't give out any spoilers but do expect heart racing moments of terror and excitement in good measure as well as smaller monsters to make it all the more complex, feeling the movie's terror from behind the lens. And no, it's not a giant lizard, but it might as well be! Ohhh, should something like this ever happen and I'm not with R for no particular reason, he betta come looking and rescue me! Go watch it, be cautious and maybe take a motion-sickness pill first and then let me know what your reactions to the movie. Okay, now I'll patiently wait for Cloverfield to be released on HD-DVD! Hah!
