It's not a sequel

I've been putting off watching "The Cloverfield Paradox" because I wanted to watch these movies in order of release thinking "10 Cloverfield Lane" was going to be a sequel to "Cloverfield". If you're thinking the same as me, then don't. It's not until the very end that it has the slightest link to the first movie and there is no need to watch "Cloverfield" first if you don't want to because this movie is more a stand alone than a sequel. I'm guessing that this will be the same for "The Cloverfield Paradox" but don't hold me to that. This movie however is a really good movie and John Goodman played a really good and caring host to his guests during this time of despair. I thought it was going to be boring as hell watching three people in a bunker but the unexpected really made for a good movie. Highly recommended.
