A Name By Any Other Would Just Be Uncivilized.
Just got in from seeing "Cloverfield." I'll say that it lived up to its hype. For me at least. Think of it as a "Blair Witch" meets "Godzilla" kind of movie. The plot is spliced together from a camcorder that was initially used to document a going away party for one of the main characters.
I won't give anything away, other than things go from cool to holy crap pretty fast.
The movie made me wonder, does the US Government have a set of protocols to deal with a giant monster? I mean, there's giant squids out there in the ocean deep, right? What would happen if one of those things went ape shit on a peer or decided to evolve (cause all giant monsters choose to do so) and take on Manhattan? Or DC?
Strange thoughts, I know. But seriously, do they?
