Drop the Camera and Run, You Moron

What is it with disaster movies and the Statue of Liberty?  Why doesn't anyone ever deface the world's largest ball of twine?Welcome, won't you?

The latest example of cinema monstre verité is every bit as nauseating as you've heard. Cloverfield also appears to be a bit divisive in terms of quality. From what I've read, folks seem fairly evenly divided between those who thought it was a brilliant way to freshen up a tired genre and those who thought it was a pointless and unnecessary exercise in style. Or, in internet-speak, those who thought it roxxored and those for whom it was teh suck. Find out why I fall into the latter category by reading the Rifftrax review here.
