Like everyone else, we were surprised at the Netflix announcement of 'The Cloverfield Paradox' premiering immediately following the Super Bowl. This may have been a revolutionary way to announce a film, but is the film itself any good? PLUS, everyone's favorite BDSM-featured relationship movie trilogy wraps up this week with the release of 'Fifty Shades Freed', so the Movie Bears are tackling the franchise's portrayal of BDSM relationships. Got an opinion on either of these topics? Listen up to hear our thoughts...
