Cloverfield's Monster

I *like* seeing my monsters.

I know the arguments. Less is more. Audiences today are wuh-hayyy too jaded for their own good.

But I guess for *my* money, I'd rather SEE some shit rather than NOT SEE some shit.

That said, the Monster from Cloverfield doesn't look that great in toy-form. Certainly no Godzilla or King Kong or Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. I guess it looks like a big, wingless, albino bat. It looks like something that could exist. But where's the magic? Where's the charisma?

Maybe it'll hold some charm for the kids. What do I know? All I know how to do is make the animated gifs...
