    Cloverfield

    ★★★

    Several things:

    - I can't believe that one girl walked around New York City in nothing but a dress and her high heels during a high-level emergency evacuation. Unrealistic. There's a monster out there, you're walking through a department store, and you don't think to grab running shoes and maybe a sweater?
