Aside from a quite extraordinary Dolby Atmos track, the question that ran through my mind while viewing the latest in the Cloverfield series, was ” why?”
The film seems a bit of a mashup of Alien, The Big Sleep and Beat the Devil.
One superb outer space opera.
A superb noir, with an extremely convoluted plot…
and a third film with virtually no discernible plot whatsoever.
But while those three productions are all a pleasure to watch, The Cloverfield Paradox seems an odd choice for what seems to be a large budget production.
The Blu-ray is also a bit confusing, at least to me, as while it was seemingly shot with anamorphics, lights in background of shots are not elliptical.
Did I mention that it has a terrific Dolby Atmos track?
