I'm becoming a Netflix Originals fanboy.

“Blackwater National Park reported that a lighthouse was surrounded by something they termed “a shimmer.”
One of the wardens went in to investigate.
Never returned.”

Let me get right to the point. “Annihilation” isn’t exactly an easy SF. This horrifying SciFi can join the group of “the more intellectual looking SF films” where “Arrival” can be found as well. The more subtle form of SF, where you wonder all the time what is actually going on (just like the protagonists in this movie). And in the end you still have a lot of questions. In terms of imaging, it looks like “Predator” mixed with influences from “Invasion of the body snatchers“. And it all takes place in a giant soap bubble. One moment the group of five women stumble through a jungle where they are attacked by grotesque, mut...

Refractions of Life in the Smart Sci Fi Genre

In recent years we’ve seen the rise in a tendency that has come to be known as “smart science fiction”. Movies like “Arrival”, “Interstellar”, “Looper”, “Ex Machina”, even “Mad Max: Fury Road” are clearly genre pieces, but they seem to rely heavier on the ideas they are portraying rather than the high-concept eye-candy that is characteristical to the genre. Whether these films are truly smart or not is up for debate, but the tendency is clear.

Boasting great visuals, a thought provoking story and a strong central performance by Natalie Portman, Annihilation rises as an early candidate for one of the year’s best.

One Trippy Science Fiction Film

I had a rough idea of what to expect going into this, but it turned out to be more (mentally) challenging and enjoyable than I could have imagined. Without a doubt, Natalie Portman carries this film. Coming from Alex Garland ('Ex Machina', 2014), I knew this wasn't going to be some special effects/CGI shoot 'em up laden offering. If anything, I think it was very restrained in all of the possibilities that could have filled up more than the nearly 2 hour running time of this movie.

'Annihilation' is centered around a astronomical event that sees an object that impacts the Earth and results in a inexplicable and dangerous environment named Area-X. As the story unfolds, a sparse group of main characters, that includes Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, and Tuva Novotny, is sel...
