After watching Cloverfield last week, I was left wondering…who were the actors and actresses in the movie? None of them were properly developed, and a few of them just seemed like arbitrary characters who could have easily been left out of the movie. Then there’s the shaky camera which further hampered character development. You can’t really focus on their faces when the screen looks like a whirlwind of colors.
The movie is like a Blairwitch meets Godzilla. It wasn’t as frightening as I thought it would be, but at least the action made me feel like I was there. Aside from the excellent gritty and realistic looking footage, Cloverfield doesn’t offer much else. I don’t even remember the names of the characters. That’s how forgettable they are. It’s difficult not to roll your eyes at how dumb the characters are as they make one stupid decision after another. By the end of the movie, you’re left confused and dizzy.
I went and looked up the cast and came up with these pictures. Just the women though. No one cares about the guys.
The lead actor in Cloverfield is
Michael Stahl-David as (Rob Hawkins) – Leads people to their death. Constantly in the wrong.
The names of the three main women in Cloverfield are
Odette Yustman (Beth McIntyre) – Unrealistically hotter than the rest of the cast.

Jessica Lucas as (Lily Ford) – Half Pakistani, half Black…possibly crazy.
Lizzy Caplan as (Marlena Diamond) – Expendable stoned chick who looks 40 but is around 26.
The camera guy for most of the movie is
T.J. Miller as (Hud Platt) – Idiot who can’t hold a camera still. Fucks the entire movie up.
I hope there is a sequel made because there are too many unanswered questions. This wasn’t a bad movie, it was just unfulfilling. Hopefully they’ll find a better camera guy next time.
