god particle

No one expected a Cloverfield cinematic universe when the found footage movie was released in 2008. But last year, Paramount Pictures and J.J. Abrams‘ Bad Robot pulled a fast one on audiences, dropping the trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane mere months before the movie hit theaters. A sort of spiritual sequel to Cloverfield, 10 Cloverfield Lane was only thinly connected to the events of the first film, as it was transformed from a psychological thriller originally titled Valencia.

Now, we can look forward to the third Cloverfield movie that has evolved from another screenplay titled God Particle. Screenwriter Oren Uziel has explained how God Particle came to be the third Cloverfield movie and it’s pretty interesting.

2016 Was a Banner Year For Horror

best horror movies of 2016

If you grab an average person off the street and ask them how they feel about the recently departed 2016, they’d probably give you a detached thousand yard stare. Or burst into tears. It was, for the world as a whole, not a great time to be alive. However, it was a great year for horror movies. And that makes a twisted sort of sense. As we discover new ways to fear and despair, the movies will react accordingly. Whether by accident or design, horror cinema represented everything we dread in 2016. How it will react to the actual events of this past year has me fascinated…and terrified.

Looking back at the past twelve months, it’s astonishing just how good horror cinema has been. It was there when we needed it, offering an avenue of escape and, when necessary, a dark mirror to examine our inner demons.

Top 10 Movies of 2016

On occasion, there has been some argument among other film bloggers and journalists on Twitter as to whether this was an awful year for movies or not. When we look at the summer blockbuster season, it was mostly a bust this year. But if you were paying attention for good movies that were playing at the nearest indie theater, or ventured our to catch the lower key releases that only stick around the big multiplexes for a week or two at a time, that’s where the good stuff was.

The year 2016 was a bad one for sequels and reboots, but it was a good one for independent cinema, original science fiction, coming of age drama, family struggle, and incredible musical moments. All of this and more can be found in my personal list of the Top 10 Movies of 2016. But beware of some potential spoilers if you haven’t seen them!. Read More »
