    The Cloverfield Paradox

    ★★★★

    I thoroughly enjoyed it. It had enough intrigue and horror to engage me for the length of the film and linked in nicely with the Cloverfield universe. An added bonus was the excellent 4k HDR picture via Netflix. Chris O’Dowd stole the show for me.

    ★★½

    Not a great Scorsese film. A bit trippy for my liking but a perfect casting for Nicholas Cage at that stage of his career. I am intrigued to know if being an ambulance diver in a big US City is really that chaotic. The picture it panted of US healthcare was, quite frankly, bloody terrifying!

    ★★★½

    Not a great Marvel film but not a bad one either which gives it a headstart on most films. Fairly predictable, slightly too long and a tad preachy in it’s black power message. The main issue is what I call the “Suoerman Conundrum”. When suited up T’Challa is practically invincible so the film had to, very unsubtly, create a weakness. His “kryptonite”, so to speak.  The film has created an interesting change in the technological level of the Marvel world…
