I think I agree with everything written by both Lord and Olivier on Cloverfield. I will only add the motion sickness created by the movie almost brought me to hurl. You might want to take motion sickness medication before watching the movie.
The Blair Witch made me seasick as hell. Half way through, I had to look away and watch the screen peripherally.
I was ready for a similar experience with Cloverfield, but i was luckily spared. No motion sickness at all.
By the way, my wife actually thought that the monster was going to be a giant bunny rabbit. I am not even joking right now.
I couldn't agree more about taking motion sickness pills. The moving camera completely ruined the movie for me.
The movie itself didn't bother me while I was watching it. It wasn't until afterward -- driving home -- that I felt queezy.
I also think it worth mentioning that Cloverfield was a heavy mix between Stephen King's The Mist plus Godzilla and to a lesser extent, maybe Aliens, The Thing and Independence Day
