ANNIHILATION – review

The ending is confusing

This is an all-girl movie, which is totally badass. The main characters are five strong, cool, smart and beautiful women; I’m totally digging that !

Natalie Portman is one the best actresses in the world, and she held her role like the pro she is. She made the storyline more captivating, the way she acts makes me really care about what’s happening on screen… and the movie definitely needed that since it’s not even shown in HD on Netflix. It’s a low blow for sci-fi fans, and everyone else who was expecting this movie for a while. Go figure why Netflix decided to screw us like that. The visuals could have been amazing if they were in good quality.

It’s a really weird plot. There’s this thing they call “The Shimmer” that’s obviously from alien origin since it crashed on Earth. It started to grow from the crash point & on, and turning everything on its way, transforming it… spreading like cancer cells. These women are trying to figure out what’s going on, they’re kind of the last hope because everyone else who went into “The Shimmer” perimenter never came back.

As the movie goes on we figure that things are mutating, but not only things, humans are mutating as well… and animals and plants, everything that has DNA has been modified. We never truly understand why, that thing that crashed on Earth and is doing all of that isn’t expressing what they want. That’s why the ending came to be so confusing, because it survived taking human form and it still gave no answers, but hugged Natalie Portman while both their eyes started glowing – totally creepy.

The Universe might be beautiful and fascinating, but there’s a reason why it also inspires us with terror, because it’s dangerous.

RATING – 7.5/10 Great ! Would have enjoyed this movie a lot better if it were in HD, thus why I had to take off some points in the final grade because it was literal torture to see a movie of this caliber produced by Netflix but shown in crap quality on their freaking platform… I don’t get why they would do something like that, but it’s detrimental to the movie experience for sure.

STAR TREK Discovery – REVIEW

Season 1, episode 10 – Despite Yourself

Check out our sweet slideshow !

I love Star Trek so much… dang it. I was impatiently waiting for a new episode of Discovery on Netflix, I hate when good shows like this one take breaks because I want to be able to keep binge watching forever. Unfortunately, this show is subjected to the same rules as the ones broadcasted on TV channels; I mean at least the impatience builts up the excitement for when there’s finally an episode released.

This is a “to be continued” type of episode, it’s gonna leave you on a cliffhanger but that’s not for the worse, because the storyline is so interesting that you’ll want the writers to explore it further, like in more sequels. Anyway, Captain Lorca has pushed Lieutenant Stamets over his limits, even though he was aware of his medical issues. Stamets main function was to be the ship’s spore drive, which means he was vital for the crew to make rapid jumps in space. But he’s unable to after making one too many, and he’s in a weird state, between talking giberrish to throwing punches. He also transported the ship by mistake, in an alternative universe where everyone’s stuck until they figure out another way to get back home.

So that’s where we’re at ! In this alternative universe, the Federation doesn’t exist as we know it. It’s governed by xenophobic Terrans under “The Empire” who rage war on Klingons, Vulcans and the Andorians that have formed an alliance against them. The USS Discovery crew is forced to transform the ship into a Starfleet ISS battle cruiser, and change their appearance as well so they can pretend they’re part of the Terrans, as no other species would help them. While all that is going on, Ash Tyler who’s going through some wild flashbacks, breaks the neck of Doctor Hugh Culber… I am so disgusted and disappointed that this happened.

Apparently, while Ash Tyler was held captive by the Klingons, they made modifications to his body & mind and he’s basically living as if he were two people at once ?! Which would totally explain why L’Rell is obsessed with him… he’s like half part Klingon now, and Stamets between his giberrish talks said he was the enemy on board. Oh la la, that does not quite sound good for whatever’s gonna happen next. We definitely can’t trust Tyler.

The crew managed to come up with an insane plan, where Captain Lorca becomes a bounty found by Michael Burnham, who wait for this : is the Captain of the ISS Shenzou. That’s how they get onto that ship from The Empire. I’m not sure what they’re looking for, but some type of information or assistance as to how to get out of this freakish universe they’re not from, before they’ve been made and all hope is lost for a getaway plan. & that’s how it ends ! We’re gonna have to wait for next week to know if they’re gonna make it or not.

RATING – 8/10 Great ! it’s a good idea for an episode, I’m anxious for what’s to come but can’t wait to find out.
