As a fan of science fiction films, I often feel that originality within the movie industry can be at a disappointing low. Whether we are presented with remake after remake, or ideas that just seem so far fetched that they almost belong in the comedy category of our Netflix account, science fiction pictures can at times be tough to pass off as great films.
With the recent outbreak of vampire movies in the last couple years, it's always nice when a film comes along with an inspiring take on the genre. Let Me In is that film, but, because it's a remake of a Swedish film, it can't take all the credit.
If the word Cloverfield holds no meaning for you than Paramount Pictures and JJ Abrams' Bad Robot Productions haven't done their job, you simply don't hang out online very much, or you've been somewhere without modern technology since the summer.
The name Jessica Lucas may not be familiar to movie audiences yet, but rest assured with the imminent launch of Cloverfield (aka 01-18-08, aka that cool looking movie which had a trailer on Transformers), she's about to burst out huge.
