    Before I potentially waste my time watching The Cloverfield Paradox on Netflix, I'm curious if anyone here has seen it and your thoughts on the film.

    I've heard nothing but terrible things but I have a real soft spot for Chris O'Dowd ever since The IT Crowd so I still want to see it.

    So tell me, what are your thoughts on the movie if you've seen? Or do you know anyone who has seen it that had something positive to say about it?

    I watched this movie immediately after it was announced during the super bowl. It was terrible! Not the so bad its good kind of terrible. The straight up terrible kind of terrible. Dumbest movie I saw in a long time. Please stay far away. Ya been warned man.

    Why do you want to do this to me? I really want to see this movie. True, it was butchered after it was filmed, as it was a movie that was totally unrelated to the Cloverfield universe and it was haphazardly slapped together to make it tie in, but so was 10 Cloverfield Lane and that movie was good except for the parts they added. :worried: So maybe I could get some sort of enjoyment from this movie? Because of Chris O'Dowd? Maybe???

    I'm an outlier I suppose. I thought the movie was fine. It was not great and not terrible. It was ok.

    Like I always say...no one can accurately gauge your potential enjoyment of a movie like you can. You think you might like it? Give it a shot and find out for yourself. There are so many movies that people rave about and end up nominated for best picture at the Oscars, the whole nine yards! And then I watch those movies and wonder what the hell is wrong with everyone. Case in point, I watched Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri recently and loved the movie right up until the end. I won't spoil the end here but let's just say it does not end where you hope and it ruins the entire movie for me.

    A million times this. Dincy is a wise man...or woman. Either way, wise as fuck.
