Now Streaming: “The Cloverfield Paradox” on Netflix (2/4/2018)

So the football game is over and congratulations to the Philadelphia Eagles on their win over the New England Patriots. I didn’t watch more than five minutes of game play but instead was rocking out to some Spotify playlists and preparing trailer pieces and more to present to you this coming week. One commercial did remind me about the new Science Fiction film that was going to be available on Netflix post game, so here is the reminder to the world along with the premise and casting for “The Cloverfield Paradox”.

The Plot: In the near future, a group of international astronauts on a space station are working talo solve a massive energy crisis on Earth. The experimental technology aboard the station has an unexpected result, leaving the team isolated and fighting for their survival. (thank you Wiki).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: You might be surprised at this disclosure but I never saw the original “Cloverfield” film (which was done as found footage) nor did I see “Cloverfield Lane” despite hearing that one was pretty good. With no real deep interest in the material at this time I will probably take a pass on this but if you loved both of the films please have at it. I am understanding there is to be a fourth film so maybe by the time that comes out I will be up to date. What do you readers think? Should I invest the time? Are you interested in this one if you are using Netflix or using a good friends code to see it? Chime in down below.

Here’s the official poster and some reminder of the premise, and the cast. Take a look.

The Premise: In the year 2048, the human race is forced to leave Earth after decades of losing against Godzilla and other giant monsters. They take a twenty year journey to another planet called Tau Ceti e, but upon arrival, they discover that the planet has become uninhabitable. As living conditions on their ship deteriorate, a young man named Haruo spearheads a movement to return to Earth and take it back from the monsters. The ship successfully makes the return voyage, but the crew discovers that twenty thousand years have passed and Earth’s ecosystem has evolved, with Godzilla reigning atop the new food chain.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I was a fan of the show “Grimm” when it started but lost track so early that I didn’t end up keeping up to speed and as a diehard for quality and quirky action and Science Fiction/Fantasy films think this might be a sleeper hit. I think that I actually said how it reminded me of “Bad Boys” meets “Hellboy” in one of my trailer post narratives. That said I will definitely be perusing the Netflix Service when I sit down to relax after the upcoming holidays. There is no rush for me since I have so many other things to attend to before the year turns over. Have you seen any of the trailers for this? I posted all three of them so do please take a look and if it strikes your fancy let us know down there below.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Sorry readers I don’t have much to add as its been super busy over here preparing for the holidays and keeping the posts flowing. I was already intrigued by the films first two trailers and am starting to fear that with a third that they now show too much and perhaps are concerned about the potential reception. Slow down gang, let the geeks weigh in and I am sure it will be fine. Chime in down below if you like. I don’t mind that at all. Until next time.
