Okay what can we say about the Cloverfield paradox other than it was unexpected. The Cloverfield series does a good job on surprising us. Having watched the previous two movies, I feel this one holds true to the feeling the other ones gave us. The story starts off quick and we quickly know Hamilton is our main character. All three movies seem to connect and this one seems to connect with the last one in terms of the whole underground bunkers on earth. Well I do not want to say too much about the story as you should watch for yourself. This film is great it is not a classic, and I do not like it as much as other space movies like Interstellar. The film's cinematography is done with great effect, makes you feel like you are in space it has those JJ Abram light flares (he produced this film). as far as the science goes for this movie, it is really out the window as some crazy stuff goes on that or may not turn you off if you are a freak about scientific accuracies. The cinematography is great the lighting is great, plenty of times during scenes I would admire the lights and the colors that were being showcased, even down on earth where the world was in ruin, we had fog and lights and a atmosphere that was just outstanding. Dan Mindel did a great job with the imagery, as I could have picked any frame of the movie for these screenshots below. all in all would I recommend The cloverfield paradox? ehh if you watched the other movies you have to watch this one. If you never cared about the films, then I mean its up to you to watch. I do not believe this film is one for the ages, but is a good film nonetheless. I would probably watch it again. This film feels very alien covent, and like its a longer black mirror episode.
