Yeah, hopefully that's what's going on.  The Cloverfield producers would probably consider that part of their promotion because if nothing else they've gotten one more person to watch their hideously delightful movie than otherwise would have.

Fixed.

But instead I'll give you the ultimate ammo to cast aside all of my movie opinions: I'm one of only three people on this planet who really really liked "Last Action Hero."

I really liked this, it's certainly not perfect or to everyone's taste (everyone I know who saw it in the cinema had one person in their session who stood up and said "that was shit" at the end) but I thought it was a great re-invention of the monster genre PLUS I loved the fact I often caught myself craning my neck to look around people onscreen or outside the frame.

The thing that kills me about LAH is the missed opportunities. The bad guy has a ticket that he can use to pull bad guys from any movie- he threatens King Kong and Freddy Kruger- yet he does nothing with that power. There was a great groundwork, a great universe to play with, but a lot of missed opportunity. I'd have been happy if he pulled parodies of famous monsters out, or something. Thad' ha been cool.

I'll telegraph you a high-five, sir.
