The Cloverfield Paradigm

Phil and Stephen discuss the latest entry in the Cloverfield series. Is it a fun addition or a major disappointment?

Plus we look at the whole movie franchise phenomenon. Someday soon will all movies be part of some extended universe, or has this thing just about played out?

We explore the phenomenon of sub-franchises as played out in the Star Trek and James Bond movies (and on a grander scale in the Marvel cinematic universe.)

Most importantly: has the time come at last for a Howard the Duck reboot?

Join us.
