    You have to understand that it's a movie with a monster in it, but it's not a monster movie. The monster is not the focus or the main character, just like James Cameron's Titanic wasn't about a boat sinking. Both the monster and the ship are secondary background characters which create a backdrop for the story.

    The way it's made is awesome. It does a very convincing job of having you feel that everything that is happening is all live and in real time.

    In a related subject, I never wanted to see Brokeback Mountain, but it's not because I thought it was a movie about Heath Ledger getting his salad tossed.
