The first Cloverfield (which was good) had a monster (not this one) tearing up the city. Why? Where was it from? There was a hint in a videotape with a small thing crashing into the ocean, but we never really knew.

The second Cloverfield (which was pretty danged good) doesn't tell you much until the end, and it doesn't seem related at all to the first film.

This third Cloverfield makes very little sense, but does throw in the "OMG, it may cause the collision of multiple universes!" idea. So some folks suggest that we're seeing in all three films the idea of intersecting universes releasing monsters. Godzilla at the end is NOT the monster that's thrashing the city in Cloverfield 1 and NOT the monster referenced in 2.

And, all three seem to take place in separate times, so they aren't simultaneously occurring in various universes, as we'd think of things all on the same space-time line. But, it's science fiction so I suppose you could argue that they're out of sync (by years and not centuries? How arbitrary.)

Easiest answer thus far: it doesn't make sense, or the explanation is so complex that it'll take at least one more movie to tie it all together so our jaws drop at its brilliance. I'm not holding my breath.

You want brilliance that lies below the surface? Watch Primer. OMG - you literally need a chart to figure it out.

DO NOT BOTHER WITH THE CLOVERFIELD PARADOX.

It's horrible, tells you nothing about the Cloverfield universe, and is a massive waste of your time. A friend who owns a theater says that Paramount was so disappointed in it that they pulled it from theater release.

Check its rating on Rotten Tomatoes - was 11% last time I looked.

There's one good moment in it - that's all. A crew member has his arm inexplicably (literally - it's not explained) sucked into the wall of the spaceship and then is severed from his body painlessly and bloodlessly. The arm remains inside the wall. Later, the arm comes crawling down the hallway and begins to finger scratch on the floor. The arm's owner says with a straight face to the rest of the crew, their mouths hanging open:

"Hang on. What's my arm trying to tell me?" {#Roflol}

 

just so you know

i'm bothering

i can't help it

the arm thing was funny, especially when they gave it a pen and it wrote to them about the gyro stuck in volkov's craw (which would explain the wandering eye)

i stopped there but i plan to finish because that's who i am

Not Netflix, but you might still appreciate: MoviePass is down from $10/month to $7.95/month for unlimited movies.

Have you watched "Broadchurch" or "Happy Valley" (the series taking place in the Yorkshires, not the movie about Penn State)? Both are on Netflix. Great if you like gritty police procedurals.

I'm only in the first round (and really enjoying it), and so far I think Jimmy Fallon was my favorite (I'm getting ready to watch the Tina Fey one).

I was wondering why Sarah Jessica Parker was considered a comedienne, though. Did she ever do stand-up? I guess the Inglorious Basterd guy really never did stand-up either. Oh well....

How old is your Roku? I got one about 1/2 year ago or so. Didn't notice a difference in audio or video but it had a much better WIFI response than my TV did.

 
i'd guess 4-5 y.o.  The roku was grainy with lots of artifacts.  Through verizon it's the same quality as cable.

The one with Garry Shandling was released just a day or two before Shandling died. It's a good episode but chilling, given the discussion they have.

The one with Gad Elmaleh takes a bit to get going but it's a favorite now. (The series has been out for a while, just not on Netflix)
