The Cloverfield Paradox (film review)

Film: The Cloverfield Paradox
Year: 2018
Genre: Horror, Mystery, Sci-fi
Starring: Gugu Mbatha-Raw, David Oyelowo, Daniel Bruhl
About: Orbiting a planet on the brink of war, scientists test a device to solve an energy crisis, and end up face-to-face with a dark alternate reality.

My Review: 
Having wanted to see the third Cloverfield movie since it got released onto Netflix and relaxing today I decided I would finally get around to watching The Cloverfield Paradox and hoped it would be as good as the second film. Also being a fan of J.J Abrams I couldn't resist giving this a watch.

The Cloverfield Paradox is about a space station who is trying to sort a source of energy for Earth, however when the experiment goes wrong and they end up going to a parallel universe the world's start to crossover with each other there is problems for both the space station and for Earth. With the space station trying to get home and Earth being in ruin will getting home fix the problem?

I thought this film was a great prequel to the first two Cloverfield movies as it shows how it all came about with the aliens being on Earth and how it all could have been avoided had it not been for the experiment on the space station. I did like however how it showed what was happening on the space station as well as what was happening on Earth so you could see the ramifications it had for both parties.

I also loved how this could be carried on with the same characters for another movie which is exciting and shows that the Cloverfield series isn't over yet. I also really like how all of the Cloverfield movies are very different from each other while also being roughly about the same primes making a film for all kinda of movie lovers while still staying sci-fi.

I would recommend this movie to those who love sci-fi as well as those who are fans of the Cloverfield series of movies. I can't wait to see what comes next in the series.

My Rating: 4/5

Sahara (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: Sahara Year: 2017 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Pierre Core Starring: Omar Sy, Louane Emera, Franck Gastambide About:  A young cobra and his scorpion best friend go on a journey across the Sahara desert to save a new-found love Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3IRkT9JsqM My Review: Having a movie day I came across Sahara when on Netflix and having no expectations about this film and also not knowing what it was about I thought that it would be the perfect film to blog about. I did think that this was a cute adventure movie but would be better suited to a younger audience than myself. I found that this film was really sweet that the snake wanted to go across the desert in order to find a snake in which he found he felt a connection with even though they were different kinds and also from different worlds. I also thought by having the girls brother being a drug addict and struggling with wanting more drugs and wanting to leave his sister w

Brave (film review)

Film: Brave Year: 2012 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Mark Andrews, Brenda Chapman Starring: Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson About:  Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CKcqIahedc My Review: Having not seen Brave in years I thought it would be a perfect movie to watch which would make me feel proud as a Scottish person while watching an animation movie. I really like that this movie has clans which is something that is a huge part of Scotland's past and by having really common Scottish names it gave it more of a Scottish feel to the movie. Having a lead character in which doesn't want to be married off and wants to be her own person I think is a really key thing for people to watch and for children to know that it is okay t
