Everything Sucks! received mixed reviews. As Netflix doesn’t reveal any viewership data it is unknown how Netflix users responded to the show but we all know that Netflix is infamously hesitant to cancel original content.
Everything Sucks! the fourth original Netflix series to receive only one season, joining Girlboss, Gypsy, and The Get Down.
The Masters of the Universe movie is still in development, and will begin production in April.
The movie currently has a December 18, 2019 release date, it’s had a revolving door of directors and writers. At one point, David Goyer had been reported as its writer and director. There was a script by Alex Litvak and Mike Finch. There had been a draft by Jeff Wadlowthat was completed in late 2014 (that itself was a rewrite of a draft by Terry Rossio). Sony then tapped Christopher Yost for another rewrite. Now it’s in the hands of Lindsey Beer. Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, and Steve Tisch are attached to produce.
Then there’s the directors, with the film previously pegged to be helmed by McG, whose exit was followed by the auspicious entrance of David Goyer as writer and director. Goyer WAS a good choice for director, since incredible attention to the worldbuilding of Krypton in Man of Steel made us wonder what he could do with Eternia. – Which makes the latest bit of news somewhat vexing.
While he will reportedly remain onboard the project as screenwriter and executive producer, Goyer – a prolific genre-centric screenwriter whose directorial resume is highlighted by 2004’s Blade: Trinity and 2009’s The Unborn – has ceded the director’s chair due to commitments centering on his development of TV miniseries Foundation, which adapts the sci-fi novel trilogy of author Isaac Asimov.
The Cloverfield Paradox, which in 2012 was God Particle before being loosely connected to J.J. Abrams ongoing franchise, has been premiered on Netflix, Sunday night.
First time directed Julius Onah worked of the script by Oren Uziel, The Cloverfield Paradox follows the same basic plotline that was first floated for the mysterious project years ago:
“a space station orbiting above the Earth attempts to power up a particle accelerator in an effort to create a vast reserve of free energy for the depleted, desperate planet something goes wrong with the experiment and the crew of six, led by Kiel (David Oyelowo) and Ava (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), find that the Earth has disappeared.”
The first Cloverfield told an epic monster tale in intimate terms through shaky-cam/found footage cinematography, while 2016’s 10 Cloverfield Lane was a gripping exercise in tension, claustrophobia, and paranoia. Unfortunately The Cloverfield Paradox follows in the same footsteps as other highly anticipated but major let downs of Netflix, a.k.a Death Note and Bright. It’s sad to see that not only Netflix loose their high acclaim, but also to have an epic franchise of Cloverfield be met with a mediocre film.
The Cloverfield Paradox has left me disgruntled, with their poor sub plots and zero creative content. The Acting and the main plot was good, almost great but that’s about it.
