    I'm not always 100% in the mood for a slow, quiet movie but even if you're only a little bit in that mood this is a great pick. Lets its characters breathe, gorgeous to look at, and ultimately at the end you realize that it's been slowly taking you to one heartbreaking, life-defining moment that's so resonant it's worth getting to it.

    Actually just one really long chase, would have liked some actual plot but it's fun.

    It is terrifying to see an adaptation of a book like ANNIHILATION. Ultimately I don't know that people who read it will enjoy it very much, at least I didn't. That doesn't mean it's bad, but the things about the book that were most vivid to me--the disorienting feel of it, the almost dreamy tone, the final setpiece--were not there and it felt like something almost entirely different. Those were the things I'd gone for, I didn't get them.

    Spielberg's gonna Spielberg. Meryl is great, but there's not much there for anyone else to chew on. Not much to really feel, not many emotional notes outside Graham's story arc. Too inspirational, not as in the weeds. Spotlight was clearly better. And yet I liked it more than I expected to.
