As big fans of the Shark horror sub genre we had to review Deep Blue Sea 2. Come have a laugh with us as we review this quality film. If you are hoping for humans injecting shark heroin, and a horde of murderous baby sharks you are in luck.

Entertainment and how we consume it has always been endlessly interesting to me. Do you simply watch and take it in? Do you have to share your thoughts with people? When it comes to social media even the most trivial things can become hot button issues. I’ve always wondered why people needed to feel or have a certain loyalty to a brand. Let’s take the DC and Marvel movie universes for instance. This is a topic I actually try to avoid online because the toxicity and nonsense you attract is astounding. It’s very easy to say we should all just enjoy what you choose to and leave it alone but I understand the need to share and compare. Still, I have to wonder what someone thinks their accomplishing by speaking condescendingly or rudely to someone who feels differently than they do. Objectively, I’d say Marvel’s movies are better. Only because DC seems to have been fumbling all this time and trying to find its identity. Do they want to be serious? Do they want to be funny? A little of both? To be fair, I’ve had my criticisms of Marvel as well. They get by on personalities. I feel the villains in most of these movies in particular have been disappointing. The thing is, that’s how I’ve always consumed entertainment though. I don’t have any particularly loyalties or tastes I want to see everything. To be quite honest with you I love this time in the movies wherever you look there’s another superhero film coming out. I would have loved to have this as a child. Its a bit sad but like I said I often won’t talk about certain things because the well actuallys and the contrarians come out in droves. This a beautifully rich and fun time for those of us who enjoy comics, superheroes and the like. I just wish we didn’t have to navigate through toxic fandoms to discuss what we’ve come to love so much.

Do you remember as a child doing the color by numbers paintings? Is that still a thing? Well, that’s what ‘The Cloverfield Paradox’ felt like. 1 = blue, 2 = red, 3 = bending space-time..you get it.
When Earth’s natural resources are running low, nations threaten to invade nation, and a multinational crewed space station is humanity’s last, best hope. Hamilton (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) reluctantly agrees, and is convinced by her husband Michael (Roger Davies) to take to space to be a part of something bigger. The Cloverfield Station’s purpose is to discover a new form of reusable power that will save humanity.
Test after test of their super collider / flux capacitor / timey-wimey machine fails. They spend weeks, months, and years afloat in low Earth orbit desperately trying to get this thing to work. Each crew member wears their national flag on their shoulder, to 1.) Let us know it’s a multinational effort and 2.) Convince us the money spent on accent acting was well spent and convincing. All the while Michael is keeping Hamilton up to speed about an impending invasion of the Russians and other global strife. After being evacuated, he hits the road and finds a little orphan girl. I think her name was Red Herring.
With their backs to the wall, with only enough fuel for three more experiment tires…SUCCESS! Or, so they think. Space time is ripped, a portal is opened, flinging the Cloverfield Station into another dimension with a parallel Earth.
A woman, Jensen (Elizabeth Debicki), appears and is tangled in the wires behind a wall panel, and other strange things begin to happen.
Crew member pukes up a barrel of research worms, another has his arm sucked into the wall panel and severed off (it later crawls around autonomously), the same crew member is engulfed by a web of metal tentacles into the ships hull. While another is almost drowned, then frozen like a fish in a shallow North Dakota pond. One after one, crew members are killed until the final two survivors make their way back to the Earth’s surface.
A world filled with…KAIJU! (yawn)
Woman of color in the lead role. The Blacks aren’t the first crew members to die.
WHAT DIDN’T WORK
When multiple “Oh shit” moments would have been perfectly reasonable or expected, sadly they were glaringly absent. The use of science to explain the paradox was weak and a missed opportunity.It felt like the drama was artificial injected giving us a mock sense of suspense and expectation. Tried to tangentially tie-in to ‘Cloverfield’ and ’10 Cloverfield Lane’ by the thinnest of threads as possible.
‘The Cloverfield Paradox’ tries to jam, unsuccessfully, ‘Alien’, ‘Then There Were None’, and ‘Interstellar’ into one predictable movie. Forget what I said about color by numbers painting. This was more like a puzzle for preschoolers. Four to five large pieces that fit easily together, but simple and uncomplicated. With such a cast of talented, proven actors who did their best with material that was far beneath their abilities, this movie did them a disservice.
