i was on edge the whole time! what a perfect thriller. great performances, direction, camerawork. the plot went in ways i really didnt expect it to. felt like a ride and i was never bored. bonus points for having an intelligent ass protagonist, like holy shit she’s smart. not a dumb or unreasonable move in this movie by her. the ending paid off too!! i was so certain she was inevitably doomed, especially in that last 5 minutes, but it definitely subverted my expectations. i loved the hopeful note that it ended on. great movii👍🏻

(also im def not watching the cloverfield paradox cuz everyones saying its straight dogshit and i dont need these movies ruined for me. besides matt reeves is developing a direct sequel to the first cloverfield now anywayz so im getting more of this “series” (or whatever u wanna call it) either way)
