    No.


    There is nothing brilliant about it.

    He took a method already done - Blair Witch - and tweaked it a little to make a Godzilla movie.

    It is also unrealistic (aside from the monster). Who (especially a nobody) is going to defy the Army and a big *** monster to go save someone who, in reality, would be dead.

    There is nothing exceptional about this movie. At all. It's all been done before.

    Oh, well that's a different objection entirely. I thought your objection was an unfulfilled need for explanations concerning the monster. In fact, I'm sure that's what it was ;)

    I actually don't mind the movie. I've seen it twice. I just don't think it is anything more than average.

    It should be noted that Rugero Deodato (sp?) did that method 20 years before Blair Witch was even a thought with the movie Cannibal Holocaust. The Italian government was so convinced the "found footage" was real that they were going to imprison Deodato if he couldn't produce living actors who "died in the movie" in court. He had gone as far as paying the actors to not be seen publicly until a year after the movie came out..

    As much as I loath Cannibal Holocaust that would be a good film. Especially if it ended with Deodato's head on a stick...

    Buffy season 8 comics. And he has a TV show coming to Fox called Dollhouse early in 2009.

    He was working on a Wonder Woman movie, but the studio didn't like his plans.

    And he did Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along-Blog (starring Doogie Howser)
