High Life [2018]

“At 99% the speed of light, the entire sky converged before our eyes.”

Real slow burner of a film with some big names including Juliette Binoche, Robert Pattinson, André 3000 & Mia Goth. Visually stellar. At times, complex meshing of past, present and future. Really should have come with a trigger warning as there were multiple scenes of r*pe. I struggled to maintain focus throughout; the latter third before the conclusion felt a little empty. In a world of epic space films, this was a welcome change but due to how slow it is, probs not a film for everyone.

Cloverfield Paradox [2018]

“Logic doesn’t apply to any of this.”

I'd watched the original Cloverfield and knew it to be a pretty basic monstrous action film. This edition has a bad reputation in the reviews and I can see that it's flawed/silly in many ways but I found it to have an excellent & diverse cast, and the pacing and story was decent enough that it kept me entertained. Would probs recommend.
