Scary-ass Tilt-a-Whirl

We went to see Cloverfield yesterday, opening day. That's our preference when a movie holds a lot of big secrets and people are bound to spoil for you as soon as they can. I won't do that here. I will say that I thought it was great, and should become a sci-fi classic. To say that's it's a wild ride is not a spoiler, and it's a warning that the movie deserves. MrB gets motion sickness (maybe not the proper term for this since the person is not actually moving except for their eyes trying to follow rapidly changing images), and he was feeling pretty sick for the duration of it. He was still a trooper and stayed in his seat until the credits rolled. He watched most of it with his eyes closed (does that count as a viewing?), and I had to drive us home. In spite of that, he gave it a thumbs up. So -- if you like a good scare, go and see this one and see it on the big screen.

(note: don't EVEN visit the Wikipedia for this one until after you've seen it. It's a total spoiler. The link I provided is for the IMDB)
