See "The Host" Rather Than "Cloverfield"

Don't bother to see "Cloverfield." Instead, see "The Host," a South Korean monster movie unfortunately compared to "Jaws." "The Host" is not "Jaws" as that movie was just scary, not funny.

"The Host" is both scary and funny; sometimes, it seems to not be sure which it wants to be. Still the monster is grander than the one in "Cloverfield" and certainly more horrifying.

Neither film is going to make you scream (as "Jaws" certainly did), but "The Host" will make you laugh and cringe almost at the same time.
