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

My Review:
Being a movie I discovered years ago and completely fell in love with to the point it is one of my favourite movies of all time, I was excited to see that they had finally put this on Netflix so that others could discover it and love it as much as myself. As a result I thought I would re-watch Snowpiercer and give it a review which is fun for me as it is a film in which I really enjoy and feel is very underrated.

I love how this film begins by showing you how the passengers who are on the train that goes around the world are the only survivors of the human race. By doing this it shows how key the train …

My Review:
Wanting a style of film I don't usually watch but do enjoy I decided to watch the stalker movie that is My Teacher, My Obsession which is based on an English teacher who starts at a new school. However, when one of the students gets obsessed with him she will do anything to be with him including secluding him from everyone else.

I liked the foreshadowing at the beginning of the movie which matched up to the ending very well and shows how throughout the movie that this was coming up. I also liked how the film showed how the student was getting close to…

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle (film review)

Film: Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle
Year: 2017
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy
Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart, Jack Black
About: Four teenagers are sucked into a magical video game, and the only way they can escape is to work together to finish the game.

My Review: As someone who grew up watching the Jumanji film with Robin Williams I was worried about the new film and if this would ruin the film that I grew up loving. I was gladly proven wrong! This film is based after Jumanji and is through a video game which is more with the times rather than board games, not only this but it is based around two people who are more nerds/geeks (one male and one female) and two of the popular group (one male and one female). As you see them coming to terms with their new characters and making it so that the popular ones are the more weak characters who aren't as popular and vice versa it made the film something for everyone. The casting for this film was amazing and having such amaz…
