    I figured I'd make a thread for the 3 films

    Cloverfield (2008)
    10 Cloverfield lane (2016)
    The Cloverfield Paradox (2018)

    What are your guys thoughts? Cloverfield is one of my favorite movies, the first spin off was good and tied into the first one (Crazy guy worked for the satellite company that crashed a satellite into the ocean in the original movie) If you don't know what I'm talking about Google it. There's so much hidden s--- in these movies and the online ARG's J.J is a genius. I think Lost ties into the universe too. Anyway anyone seen the newest one?

    Yeah from what I heard it's just a prequel showing us how the monster got there. Still looking forward to it though

    i lost my s--- when the teaser dropped. cloverfield is my all time favrotie movie. i followed everything in the original ARG and couldnt wait for the superbowl to be over. i had netflix on waiting for that play button to show up.
    the final scene though :emoji_heart: ive waited ten years to see him (i assume its a him).

    Cloverfield was awesome. 10 Cloverfield Lane was a d-ck tease but still a solid movie but not enough b--- for the buck after 2 hours of build up.

    And oh my god... how do I even explain The Cloverfield Paradox.... what a s--- fest. Absolute f---ing s--- fest. Bad direction, bad writing, bad dialogue, bad characters and actors, and a horrid horrid ending.

    It’s time to k--- off this movie franchise. Or at least, give us a sequel to the OG Cloverfield movie. That’s all I’ve ever wanted. The first movie was so awesome

    SAME HERE! it was nice to get a little backstory i guess from paradox but it would be nice to see an actual sequel to the OG cloverfield. i remember reading an interview with JJ saying thres a scene on the bridge where hud catches someone else recording and that it would be cool to see someones elses perspective of the evening. im all for that as long as they dont cliffhanger it.

    also ive only watched paradox once and i was exhausted but is it fully explained what falls into the ocean at the end of the og cloverfield? ive always assumed it was a satelite (i cant spell lol)

    I really enjoyed Cloverfield Lane and was stocked for Paradox after the trailer, but it was just terrible. Even with a few solid actors, the dialogue and directing was awful. It seemed like a low budget Sci Fi film I would stumble upon in the deep depths of Netflix.

    thought paradox was good, dunno what the complaints are about seemed pretty fine to me. ending was s--- but most "horror" movies have s--- endings (asssuming this was horror?)

    like that whole "omg they're saved!!! LOL JUST KIDDING WATCH THEM DIE WITHIN A 15 SECOND TIME FRAME!!!" thing can f--- off, seen it in every horror related movie

    this kind of ending is a massive copout imo

    but it's basically par for the course at this point with most newer horror movies

    however, I do understand why this ended like it did, they actually tied it back into the first cloverfield movie with that, but still

    I just rewatched the real CLoverfield movie and I noticed something. So in OG Cloverfield when that thing falls from the sky and lands into the water, it says 6:17pm on the camera. In Paradox, when they begin their decent down to earth they say its 4pm. So, that scene where something falls from the sky in OG Cloverfield was not the space pod from Paradox Cloverfield.
