Cloverfield UHD Review
Cloverfield_feat1-1024x576.jpg



Originally intended as a tie-in to the theatrical release of The Cloverfield Paradox (which has since been cancelled after being acquired outright by Netflix), Paramount has released Cloverfield in a new 4K UHD Blu-ray. Unfortunately, due to the film's low-fi origins, there is little advantage gained in this upconverted release.

The bulk of Cloverfield was actually shot with Thomson Viper and Sony CineAltas. Hardly "prosumer".

Without addition of an Atmos track I doubt I’ll buy the 4K.

I love this movie and find it odd that so many people dismiss it just because it simulates being recorded by a handheld camera.

Thought it was thrilling and genuinely scary.

Yeah - I dislike the vast majority of "found footage" movies but "Cloverfield" used the format to its advantage and offered a good thrill ride.

"10 C Lane" was also a good spinoff!

Ditto, even though I’m not a fan of the “found footage” genre.
