The Cloverfield movie series is such an interesting blank check franchise because there’s no shortage of good ideas by making this an anthology series as it gives more freedom for whatever stories that the filmmakers want to tell. I would have been fine if this was one movie about a monster attacking a city but they decided to expand on this and made a great followup in 10 Cloverfield Lane.
The year is 2045. Wade Watts lives with his aunt and her deadbeat boyfriend in shady part of Columbus, Ohio. Like most of his peers, Wade spends most his time fleeing from his problems by getting lost in a virtual reality called the OASIS. The game was created by the late James Halliday. The objective of the game is to obtain 3 keys that lead to a prize, granting the winner Halliday’s fortune, and complete ownership over the OASIS. Teaming up with his friends, the High Five, Watts goes on the biggest Easter egg hunt of his life.
