Cloverfield and Dickmann's

Yes, I finally managed to drag my arse to the movies. After all I have read and heard - also on LJ - about Cloverfield, it seemed to be the only reasonable choice if I didn't want to be left out of the conversation... As if! LOL
To get straight to the point: I LOVED the movie! Really did! Given the story and given the script that hand-held camera seems the only sensible way to shoot the movie. And they really, really did a good job. I never lost the feeling to be in the middle of the story. Cam was definitely the high point of Cloverfield. And something else I probably liked even more and which is what often really annoys me in some other block busters: I didn't have to feel like a complete idiot, because the characters in the story (no big names, another plus in my book) didn't waste any time with stupid explanations and questions and thinking, all you got was just what would probably really be said and done if such a situation ever happened to occur. And I really loved that powerful sound when the whole theatre was almost torn due to those powerful thumps. All in all: surprisingly good and luckily somehow astray from stupid cliches. YAY for Cloverfield.



Off to something completely different.

Just the right name, just the right shape, just the perfect creamy filling, just the perfect chocolate topping. My oh my! And ripped box is just a sign of great urge! LOL

Glad you enjoyed "Cloverfield". Was it dubbed into Slovenian, or were there Slovenian subtitles?

Now - go enjoy a nice big mouthful of DICKman's... :-)

It was subtitled, we don't dub movies here, except kiddies stuff. Luckily :)

And my mouth is painfully empty again. Where have my DICKmann's gone? :)

Totally invading here. Hope you don't mind. I saw you had left a comment at olamina's place.

I have yet to see this movie cause I heard bad reviews but now I will give it a second try.
