Some Thing Has Found Us
Five young New Yorkers throw their friend a going-away party the night that a monster the size of a skyscraper descends upon the city. Told from the point of view of their video camera, the film is a document of their attempt to survive the most surreal, horrifying event of their lives.

It was my bad that I didn't see that this was a found-footage movie because I watched half of the movie hoping the camera would switch over but it didn't. These movies give me headaches so I was sick halfway through and nothing really had happened yet. Maybe if it did I would've bothered to finish it but the I found this so so so very boring. The characters were boring, the story took way too long to get anywhere so I stopped watched.

The film is an amazingly visceral experience. It's unconventional, and I enjoyed the ending TREMENDOUSLY. I definitely have to applaud the decision to not simply make a cookie cutter action film that is easy to watch. This movie is a breath of fresh air.
