This movie was released in February of 2018. This was one of the many movies I wanted to see and do a small movie review on. After viewing this film, I had a variety of mixed feelings about the story and the characters that were involved.
The movie is based on Jeff VanderMeer’s best-selling Southern Reach Trilogy, Annihilation stars Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny, and Oscar Issac.
This movie is definitely different from other sci-fi films I have seen recently. Based on the trailer I saw originally, I expected it to be some kind of horror movie with sci-fi elements. I was pleasantly surprised I didn’t get that. The movie is much more like a sci-fi/psychological thriller, where the story had some layers: at face value we have the main story with the alien and “the shimmer”, at a deeper level, the movie is a metaphor about self-destruction, and on an even deeper level, it’s a first-person narrative with clues making you wonder how much of it is true.
I personally didn’t like the music score for this film. Country music and a psychological thriller don’t really mesh together in my opinion. The beginning did feel a little slow at first, but it still worth a watch. Now I did say it wasn’t a horror movie but it does have some horrific scenes, though not typical: some scenes were just strangely and beautifully horrific.
This film is a visual treat, a unique take on alien invasion, creative environments and creatures, as well as profound and thought-provoking with an ending that is quite spectacular and puzzling at the same time.
Petyr ‘Littlefinger’ Baelish: Chaos isn’t a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some, are given a chance to climb. They refuse, they cling to the realm or the gods or love. Illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is. But they’ll never know this. Not until it’s too late.”
No matter what happens…never give up…
Now I caught the ending of the Oscars. I really didn’t plan out my day to watch the show, but I was very pleased with who won the Oscars and what was being nominated. I caught up the fashion and the red carpet events and I have to say everyone looked stunning in their gowns and suits!
Here are some photos I collected from the stars of the night and their amazing wardrobe!
I’ve been wanting to write this for a few months now and I’m happy I got to write this piece for Coffee House Writers.
“Friends can, at times, feel like family members. They know your history and know how to talk you down from your own crazed thoughts and worries. A best friend can bring great joy, comfort, solace, and fun to your life. But what happens when you make the wrong person your best friend?”
