Strawberry Fields Forever

  "I heard it was a Godzilla remake," someone said in passing, about Cloverfield.
  See, that kind of thing just irritates me.  Was not every Lethal Weapon a remake of the first one?  What’s the point of the Die Hard franchise?  Or Austin Powers?  Well, the point is, entertainment.
  Maybe "large monster terrorizes city" has been done to death (haha–"to death"–I kill me); that doesn’t mean it can’t be done again if you have a new idea for a fresh approach.
  And that’s what this:  a new idea, and a fresh approach.  The point of it is that the characters happen to have a video camera when the attack happens, and they record everything.  This adds to the sense of realism.  This same style could be used to approach other–
  Wait.  Wow. that would be something.
  An Alien invasion ala War of the Worlds, but this time kill Tom Cruise early in the movie and hand a video camera to a key grip.  It’s a winner on several fronts.
  Or take any chick flick, but give the camera to the male lead, so that while all the sappy talking and connecting and crap is going on, the camera is pointed at the chick’s tits.  There would be more voyeur shower scenes also.  I guess there’s a fine line between realism and amateur porn.. .
  You could even do a scary movie that way, where it’s like a group of students doing an investigation or something into an old legend about a witch or a haunting, and have them camp out in a state park and pretend to get lost in the woods and freak out–
  Wait.  That’s been done.
