Movie Review: ‘Annihilation’

February 25, 2018 at 3:45 pm | Posted in Movies, Reviews, scifi/fantasy | Leave a comment

While Black Panther may be hogging up all the headlines, there are other movies out there, and Annihilation is one worth noting. With a dominant female cast, a bizzare alien otherworldliness, and an interesting story that is one part character exploration and one part journey into the unknown, it’s a film that entertains on multiple levels. It’s not a fast paced action film, but for those who enjoy a good visual feast of creative imagination, this one delivers.

At the heart of the film is Natalie Portman’s character Lena. She’s ex-army and currently a bioligist. She gets wrapped up in a government group that’s trying to study an alien entity that’s changing the environment and steadily growing. So far, they’ve learned nothing about it. Lena is recruited along with four other women to explore the area that’s being reshaped by the alien presence and to find its source to see if it can be stopped. Thus you get Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson and Tuva Novotny joining Natalie Portman on this sci-fi exploration adventure. As they get closer to the source, they see weirder and weirder things. Along the way, we learn more about Lena and her husband who went missing, who is played by Oscar Isaac. We also learn more about the alien presence. Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘Annihilation’…

Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond.

Book News

  • Pre-orders are up for Star Wars: Last Shot by Daniel Jose Older which will be out April 17, 2018 in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats.
  • Here’s the blurb for Last Shot (via Edelweiss).

Han Solo and Lando Calrissian star in an action-packed novel that ties into the new Han Solo film—due to release May 25, 2018.

THEN: It’s one of the galaxy’s most dangerous secrets: a mysterious transmitter with unknown power and a reward for its discovery that most could only dream of claiming. But those who fly the Millennium Falcon throughout its infamous history aren’t your average scoundrels. Not once, but twice, the crew of the Falcon tries to claim the elusive prize—first, Lando Calrissian and the droid L3-37 at the dawn of an ambitious career, and later, a young and hungry Han Solo with the help of his copilot, Chewbacca. But the device’s creator, the volatile criminal Fyzen Gor, isn’t interested in sharing. And Gor knows how to hold a grudge….

NOW: It’s been ten years since the rebel hero Han Solo last encountered Fyzen Gor. After mounting a successful rebellion against the Empire and starting a family with an Alderaanian princess, Han hasn’t given much thought to the mad inventor. But when Lando turns up at Han’s doorstep in the middle of the night, it’s Fyzen’s assassins that he’s running from. And without Han’s help, Lando—and all life on Cloud City—will be annihilated.

With the assistance of a young hotshot pilot, an Ewok slicer prodigy, the woman who might be the love of Lando’s life, and Han’s best and furriest friend, the two most notorious scoundrels in the New Republic are working together once more. They’ll have to journey across the stars—and into the past—before Gor uses the device’s power to reshape the galaxy.
