"Annihilation (Alex fucking Garland, 201?)"


  

          

NNNNNNIIIIGGGGHAAAAA!!!!!

Now that's a fucking movie b. My nigga Garland is unstoppable b.

I didn't read the book the film is based on but holy shit. This is heady, beautiful and gruesome at the same time. It combines the smart sci-fi of Arrival with the visuals of The Fountain with the body horror of Cronenberg.

I can't wait to see this shit with the final score in tact. I'm gonna go back and read the whole trilogy now.

If you're like me and haven't read the book or know what the film is about go in blind. I'm serious don't watch any trailers b.

A bizarre play to show footage at that convention and then immediately push it back.

A team of women scientists enter Area X,an alien landscape that landed on Earth.

That does a disservice to the film, but I tried to be a vague as possible.

I liked Prometheus, btw. This has the same somewhat difficult to follow logic behind the sci-fi elements, where you mostly get what it's trying to say, but it's hard to know exactly why some of the things are happening.

This also has some of the issues with seemingly very careless decisions being made in the face of an unknown alien environment.

Characters are too subdued to care much about them, but I was engaged throughout, and a lot of the imagery is very striking.

B minus type movie.

Imho the flaw to Prometheus is that the endpoint felt like for all the weirdness, we ended up in a generic place; a bunch of dudes who made some fucked up weapon that they lost control of. Things needed to be colored in but for the most part the 'aliens' weren't that alien. Annihilation felt continuously weird and otherworldly where the Engineers in Promethus/Covenent couldda just been future humans or some shit.

>This also has some of the issues with seemingly very careless
>decisions being made in the face of an unknown alien
>environment.

It's part of the 'Hey, weird shit is happening and someone's gotta check it out, LETS DIVE IN' sci-fi trope. They didn't seem as dumb as usual and unlike Prometheus the 'wrong' choices felt a bit more logical as opposed to feeding the plot that a bunch of these movies do.

>Characters are too subdued to care much about them, but I was
>engaged throughout, and a lot of the imagery is very
>striking.

This I agree with, (particularly I thought Tessa Thompson's character was a bit too morose even with the explanation they gave which made her arc...meh). But Issacs and Portman killed it, B+ for me, I wanna see it again

Annihilation is more thoughtful and distinct. But I think both are good movies.

SPOILERS

I think this is me being nitpicky but I just thought it was weird their method was to send in team after team never to be heard of again. What about a robot? What about tie a rope to me, send me 10 feet in, then yank me out? This sounds like a stupid complaint as I type it, but for whatever reason, it distracted me for a bit. Once inside, none of their decision making stuck out as idiotic, because they all had issues that made it easy to understand why they might not take the most logical actions.

... but for me, this was a major issue with the book. I think I remember every single character just felt like a plot device.

A lotta junk science, a whole lotta missing logic, hard to follow plot, cheesy effects (and some cool ones), flat ass characters, the way overplayed post-event-slowly-revealing-in-flashbacks-interview structure.

And that fucking last shot. They straight up took the end of Thriller. And made it worse.

This movie was pointless. zero resolution.

The resolution you wanted is not going to come because I don't think this will get a part 2 unfortunately.

You did catch what happened at the end and during the interviews though right?

You do know that wasn't her at the end right? Basically the two cloned-out aliens made it back to each other outside the dome. So what we saw in the dome is just a start.

He's not really her husband but I think that's still Portman at the end (just slightly mutated). It's her clone that stayed behind & annihilated the shimmer.

and i'm glad you get to do that with students

due to bullshit with the district we recently had to get rid of our 3D printing machine...

and no shit it's pretend science, the movie is a narrative that emerged / was adapted from a fantasy novel, you know where writer take real world things and imagine them beyond the things we have or understand?

you seem to not be able to admit it went over your head which would be fine. I am not going to re-explain as it was done for you above. it wasn't convoluted and didn't have a tight resolution because again, this is an adaptation from a novel and there are two more books

33. "***SPOILER.....***"
In response to Reply # 0

...

....


......probably a spoiler below.....



.....


'Invasion Of The Body Snatchers' right?

i genuinely dig BOTH versions...the 50s version and the 70's version. Both are among my fave's and both are always good for a rewatch.

i dug this new updated version too.

...

(the above is not a diss...i went into Annihilation totally blind (as i always try my best to do), i knew nothing, other than who the director was and that i enjoyed other things he was involved with ('Ex Machina' and 'Never Let Me go')... i left satisfied with this flick as well....)

I *think* I got it the first time, but it's one I'll most definitely check out upon release again.

Cool premise, good direction, good cast, nice touches of horror... Thumbs up.

Did everything just escape afterwards or die?

There's nothing in the movie to suggest that everything died.

Started decent, then went downhill.

I swear bwood is on the payroll with some of the
corny shit he hypes. I wonder if there is a pattern
by studio...?

Meh. Maybe he saw a different cut cuz the second
half of this shit was sci-fi channel cringe worthy.

Glad I didn’t pay for it, but this was awful.

and it was trash. I really had high hopes for this and I wasn't feeling it in the least. It was a less entertaining version of "Arrival". It had big ideas but was such a slog to get through that the payoff was a let down.
