    The Cloverfield Paradox

    ★★½

    "Bad things are happening, but good people are gonna make it better."
    "We're gonna need a lot of good people…"

    Eh. I don't know what happened here. I hate when I do this but I decided fairly rapidly here that it wasn't gonna be a very worthy entry in the franchise.

    "Some of us just decided to do something about it."

    Like Episode 7 had Luke, Leia and Han etc, this too has a gimmick I can't even begin to talk about yet, but which was enough to have me doubting my first impression since it was so distractingly joyous.
