So far the best movie of 2008, and will probably remain one of the best by the end of this year. It's a movie about a group of friends who film a going-away party for their friend Rob when all of a sudden, a monster attacks New York City. Rudy Giuliani handles the situation very well by using excessive military force to destroy the slums of New York while the monster creates a distraction.
Most people hate this movie because they claim that the movie gave them a severe headache and diarrhea, and they also claimed that the movie had no plot. In order to avoid the side effects of the movie, sit closer to the back, refrain from eating, and look down and close your eyes to readjust your sense of equilibrium. This movie does not need a plot for those who made the 2nd statement. When a city is attacked, you don't ask questions. You survive, then you ask questions.
Many people don't understand this movie for what it is. Footage of a group of friends as they struggle to survive a bizarre event which they have no information on.
Spectator 1: I'm speechless, that movie was awesome.

Spectator 2: That was the worst movie I ever saw. I could go film myself on a merry-go-round and give people the same reaction.

Spectator 1: Maybe if you had some imagination, you would feel what the actors were feeling and enjoy Cloverfield for what it is.

To recruit an individual or individuals for a project that they know nothing about, or that they do not discover the purpose of until much later.
Nobody's told us anything about why we're running all over town. I'm starting to think we've been Cloverfielded.

Actually a very good movie. Many critics and movie-goers loved it, but the film catches a bad rap because people who don't understand the film love to trash it.
The film is shot in a documentary style which adds to the realism and excitement of the movie, and the ending was the best way to cap it off. I can't wait for the sequel.
Film Fan: Cloverfield was sick! I loved it!

Dumbass: Actually I hated Cloverfield, but I loved Meet the Spartans.

Film Fan: You must not have understood what Cloverfield was trying to accomplish, and you clearly have bad taste.

A very good film, but not worth the full price. Its 1 HOUR AND 10 MINUTES FOR GOD'S SAKE! And that's including the credits. However, great special effects and storyline.
"Did you see Cloverfield?! WAY good!"
"Yeah, I guess. Not worth that much though."
"I concur."

Quite possibly one of the lamest movies ever.
Girl: This party is so Cloverfield.
Boy: Right, like the movie, which was equally as lame.
