I haven't! Thanks for the recommendation. That voice of his.  

"Color My World" has a very special place in my heart, not only because I love the chord progression and feel of it, but because it was the first song I ever slow-danced to.

When the wife and I were first dating we went as followers of him to a Halloween party. Not many people knew what we were doing.
Next year, I wore a T-shirt and shorts, and she rented a tiger costume. No one had heard of Calvin & Hobbes at that point, so it was a failure as well...

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 finished End of the F***ing World and I'll recommend it.



I wouldn't suggest watching the previews, since it seems to give away most of the good scenes.

It's a lot like Harold & Maude. The first few episodes are fairly bleak, but that's necessary to set up the tone of the characters. And then the plot changes. If you want to binge on something, these are nice short half hour installments and it moves quickly.

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.

just so you know

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)
