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

Moon Over Soho - Ben Aaronovitch (book review) *contains spoilers*

Book: Moon Over Soho Author: Ben Aaronovitch Genre: Crime, Fantasy, Mystery Published By: Gollancz Published Year: 2011 My Review: Having my colleague let me borrow the second book in the Peter Grant series I was looking forward to see how they would progress from the first book and what supernatural beings that they would have to defeat now. Moon Over Soho  is about jazz musicians who end up dying not long after coming off of the stage and seeming healthy at the time. Feeling that something is wrong they call in Peter Grant to help with the investigation and discover that something supernatural was going on. While this is happening there is a new threat arriving called The Faceless One who is also a wizard but no-one remembers what they look like. Will Peter be able to stop the threats facing London? Personally, I liked this book a lot more than the first book as it was already established also there was more supernatural beings introduced and to worry about in London th

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUdy0Cu3f_o My Review: Looking through my movies and wanting something based in space to watch I decided to put on Supernova which is a film in which I couldn't remember at all. Not remembering it made me feel like this was a new movie to me and I did keep me watching all of the way through easily. I like that this film showed how the device in which they discover is able to make people stronger and able to make them younger as well. By also having this device able to reattach body parts it makes the audience worried about how they will get rid o

Walko About:  A young American girl has a chance of a lifetime to visit her ancestors castle in the south of France, only to find that her family is hiding deep, dark secrets about their nefarious past, far away from prying eyes. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EARmKIxjxQ&t=82s My Review: Having been contacted by Jude himself about this movie I was rather surprised but excited to review The Incantation which comes out in America later this month. Having only seen the trailer I was not sure what to expect but glad I gave this a watch. The film is about a girl from America who moves to her families castle in France and is met by a vicar who tells her the rules of the household with three rules: no going upstairs, no uninvited guests and keeping decorum. As she stays however she starts getting nightmares about a young girl wh
