    ★★½

    The editing of this, while intriguing, serves this story poorly.
    I get it, racism is bad, but without any fleshed out characters, there is just nothing for me to latch onto. Most of the backstory is saved til the end but by that time I had lost interest.
    It certainly is a good looking film. The photography is beautiful with some amazing landscapes.

    Annihilation

    ★★★★½

    One of the oddest and more compelling color palettes I've ever seen.
    So many visual references to refractions and duality. Even the names of the core characters have two syllables.
    The ending is so freaking mind bending, it wears its 2001 homage on its sleeve and I love it. We aren't meant to fully understand it which takes balls and it works.
    The bear attack scene is one of the best of the year. Nightmare fuel.

    ★★★½

    Two words came to mind while watching this: toxic masculinity.
    I can't help but think this film serves many a fragile male ego and those people allow themselves to twist the ideas in this film to suit their own agendas.
    I am not entirely sure if Fincher is taking the material and praising or criticizing the actions of these people. There is a great core of commenting on the facades we put up in certain circumstances but it goes off…
