Annihilation

img_2261The less you know about this movie going into it, the better — and certainly the more exciting it will be to watch.

This is the second film by the guy who wrote and directed Ex Machina so it was pretty high on my list of movies to see. I watched the trailer once and that was plenty. I wanted to keep the rest a mystery until I saw it.

Parts of it were beautiful, heartbreaking, terrifying, mystifying, and brilliant.

One question I kept asking myself was: “what the bleep?!”

IMDb

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ (out of 5)

Overall, it was a bit too intellectual for my liking, which brought it down to 3 stars. I’ll watch it again someday but along the same lines as Interstellar, every few years is fine.
