Natalie Portman quips with Oscar Isaac about working on two separate Star Wars trilogies, while Tessa Thompson gives Nat a sly dig about taking over as Thor's potential love interest. Okay so that didn't happen...but I couldn't help thinking about those scenarios while watching this.
Annihilation is fine but not as terrifying as I had hoped. It's let down by some dodgy effects, stilted acting and acoustic music choices. The pace is fine and there is a creepy tone to the movie, but ultimately it's a big ball of 'pretty but what's the point?'
