Ty Catches 'Cloverfield'

Wassup, Y'all!

What the hell was that? That joint was like 'The Blair Witch Project' on steroids. If you're a fan of that old NYPD Blue herky, jerky, nausea inducing, jittery camera work, you'll love this joint. The story is pretty good but it felt worn after seeing similar mayhem and destruction in NYC in 'I Am Legend' (not to mention 9/11). The camera work is jacked up because the entire move is filmed from the point of view of a personal video camera. The good news about that? Since a personal video camera's battery lasts about 84 minutes, that's how long this joint lasted. The bad news? Ol Ty ralphed in his medium popcorn bag during the first five minutes when the camera work is at it's worst.

Can't say I agree with's 77% freshness rating on this one. This joint could only register 2 Spinners on the Hooptometer. Hopefully J.J. Abrams can deliver a little more meat with 'Star Trek'. He's on the right track with casting Zoe Saldana as Uhura, but ol girl can only carry a movie so far (like just past the credits...). Well see...
