Annihilation ★★½

I'm really torn on this one. I wanted to like it. 2/3 of the way in, I was fully torqued. The visuals were fantastic, and the music was a perfectly balanced back and forth between serene and jarring. The third act just seemed to go nowhere, and the "pivotal" scene went on waaay too long. It was like an artsy combo of Predator and 2001 that didn't fully deliver.
