Ways The Cloverfield Paradox Connects the Cloverfield Movies

Is Netflix Planning the Ultimate Super Bowl Surprise with

That includes stuff as innocuous as the appearance of Donal Logue as a TV talking head who might be related to John Goodman's character in the prior film, to the downright ugly, insulting and poorly-executed final shot, which contains effects work that's so bad it should have been used as an NBC on-field graphic during last night's gam; it's just that terrible. Though the first two films - 2008's Cloverfield and 2016's 10 Cloverfield Lane - didn't share any direct DNA within their separate narratives, they did both function as effective post-9/11 paranoia pieces; melding blockbuster thrills with timely considerations on how we can feed on and be consumed, both individually & collectively, by fear. Fans also know that Overlord, slated for October, will connect to the franchise. "And even self-identifying fans may be dispirited by the degree to which the movie plays like a retread of innumerable other science-fiction thrillers, including the Alien movies, Event Horizon, Sunshine, Europa Report and last year's underappreciated Life, which died a premature death in theaters". A potential way out takes us to space, where the crew tries to use an experimental particle accelerator that could create a new source of energy. There is so much further they really could have gone with it, which is why it's such a letdown. The J.J. Abrams-produced franchise has produced one of the most intriguing sci-fi universes on-screen today. Oh, and the trailer claims that the new film will answer some questions regarding the mysteriousness of the original Cloverfield movies!

First, the Shepard particle accelorator sent creatures into various parts of Earth's timeline. This is lower than the audience scores of 68 percent and 79 percent for Cloverfield and 10 Cloverfield Lane respectively.

A fourth Cloverfield film is already on the way, but IndieWire's David Ehrlich wonders if the brand - "until yesterday a magic word capable of stirring excitement out of nothing - is now tainted beyond recognition".

That's not to say that the film, loosely spun out of the universe "Cloverfield" introduced a decade ago, is a total disaster. They include: Gugu Mbatha-Raw's Hamilton (damaged & vulnerable), Daniel Brühl's Schmidt (shifty), Ziyi Zhang's Tam (feisty), Chris O'Dowd's Mundy (funny), and Aksel Hennie's Volkov (the token sinister Russki).

One of the big problems with Paradox is that 85 percent of the film is explanation, leaving very little time for character development.

Essentially, the crew members of the Cloverfield International Space station inadvertently open up a portal between dimensions that unleashes the monster from the original movie onto the planet. But if, in fact, the next film explains what the franchise plans to do with Paradox's realities and timelines, we can look at the latest film as the middle of a long-con to something memorable.
