    Just watched it and yeah, it's a slow burn, it was slowly burning my mind the entire time. I had no idea what the movie was, I was expecting an action movie, I just liked the title and decided to watch it before going to sleep. I really was not in a mood for a psychological horror but by the time I realized what it was I was so gripped I could not turn it off. I'm still in shock and I want to watch it again.

    All characters r so unlikable. The character n how it try to show made no sense. Why they act n do the stuff like that. Took me out if the pic so many time.

    The fuck was thaaaaaaaaat? Its like they tried to meld 9 different movies together. It didn't work at all, imo. The artistic direction, sure. The acting, fine. Everything else was a cobbled together mess without direction, much like the entire mindset of the characters and their world.

    "Hybrid" ahah!
    "Terrible beauty " is how I'd describe the environment, which is nature.
    Unreliable narrator, okay, check.
    My major beef is the science. Refracting DNA so it mixes at cellular levels, cool! But in developed organisms, no. Just no. At that speed? No.
    Major major beef? The perpetuation of the equating species with genus. Hybrids are totally made from crossing species. Within a genus. There is even hybridization between genera. Digiplexis, look it up. Within families, sure, between families, eh. But it all happens at baby level.
    Okay, I'm speaking out of my ass, maybe Paul Parent is right and pollinators can taken pollen from a wild orange daylily and make a frilly purple hybrid daylilly turn orange , but my gut says he's full of it.

    The concept was great, the music was terrific, that one creepy ass scene was well... creepy. However while I'm aware that this is science fiction, it stretches my treshold of what's believable a little too much. Was worth seeing just for that creepy ass scene.

    The movie is fckin awesome up till the bear with woman voice, hell, up to that scene where the alien mirrored lena, but the ending really sucks, like really???? Using a phosphorus grenade? Why didn't the alien die when kane blew himself up or the other grenades didn't blow at that time, what a way to end lol, overall cool movie destroyed by the ending. And talk about the "experts" team melting down in no time, a psychologist that went nuts, paramedic with no chill, geologist that went high, the team is destined to be fcked up. It's clearly there are soldiers left outside the shimmer, why not go with numbers of them, feminist much?? Anyway im hyped till 2/3 of the movie only to be dissapointed.

  • 5k subs with no vids?

    The Movie as a plain plot is good but when you think about all the things in the movie and what they ment it really does blow your mind of how deep this is. Just search up on youtube the ending explanation and click on the most viewed one (not for the ending itself it explains about the whole movie) i was amazed.

  • Vmt16
    Vmt16 Month ago

    I have to agree with Jeremy on this one, the movie lands right fucking flat on its ass. I have no fucking idea what the premise of the movie is and what they were trying to say. And I'm honestly not going to bother with watching the movie again to find out, I'm just not going to watch it ever again. I really don't think its a good movie. The dialogue sucks, the character arcs are terrible and the ending is just plain shit.

    Just watched it and something that really bothered me that I couldn’t get past was why did they all go in with literally no like hazmat suit protection? Especially after her husband fell ill? But they’re all hazmatted up when she’s back? Like wtf, really ruined the movie for me

    I've only watched it 3 times. Loved it my first time and still do. But there something about it that didn't stick the landing. I loved the deep thinking it made the view leave with, tripped me in some parts but in some places it did felt like it dragged. Maybe it was the way it was intercut with the flashbacks

    totally agree about the characters. its just as big of a piece of a movie as the cinematography or plot. hate this new thing about giving unreasonable praise to movies without characters. Great, it does stuff incredibly well, but the characterization is just as important. it should be commented on.

    All the sci-fi stuff was really great, but the side-plot about her being a cheater was just AWFUL to sit through. Every time they would cut back to her and that professor knockin' boots, I would be like "GET BACK TO THE DAMN SHIMMER!!!" This movie could have been so great if they cut all that stuff out -_-

  • Nick Hadlick
    Nick Hadlick 2 months ago +1

    😲The final act aka "The Lighthouse" was magnificent, but the rest of the entire movie wasn't engaging and rational, especially considering it's mind blowing concept and potential. What a great idea that was poorly executed. I was CONSTANTLY screaming "WHY?!?!" because these characters are so oblivious and absent to the unknown severity and magnitude of their surroundings and expedition. The movie portrayed terror in certain situations, but the characters disregarded those moments as one-offs. It's as if they only had to feel that emotion at that time as opposed to constantly, especially considering that they know they are in a place that is infinitely precarious, potentially deadly, and literally NOBODY has ever returned!?!?😤💯🍻

    Every once in a while Jeremy misses a review, this is one of the cases, Annihilation is a fucking amazing movie. It's brilliant, it's sublime, the performances are incredible, the science is on point, the cinematography was beautiful as well as the music. I think this movie is amazing and definitely at least a Blu Ray if not Awesometacular

    I felt it was quite pretentious really . I think I agree with Jeremy. Loved ex machina, But this felt overly complicated for the sake of being "deep". I thought it was an interesting and well directed film though and I'm glad its been made. Definitely a film that starts conversations.

    I completely agree with your thoughts. I think it felt like a rip off of so many sci fi films I love but shoved together into a thematically incoherent story, where it thinks it's being deep and philosophical but instead incredibly predictable and unsatisfying.

    Yeah, you can just say it's garbage, Jeremy, haha. Visuals are no longer enough reason to watch a movie. Almost any highly produced film will look good these days... I literally fell out of my chair in boredom and found myself reaching for a drink after 30 minutes... alas, there was only one beer left in the fridge... I needed whisky. Like you said though, I kept hoping for a payoff, but just got a waste of time. Yeesh! Let's hope they don't try to make the other two books into more art-fluffed dog crap with a "strong female cast", haha :( As an artist, animator, and film-lover, I think this movie makes the whole industry look bad - overreaching, shallow, self-inflated, insular, and meaningless. [facepalm]

    It is a good thing I watched the movie before I saw this review. The movie was great. Come to think of it I usually watch Jeremy review after watching a movie. He always ruins it even if he gives it a good rating. He messes with my expectations.

    You found the ending boring but were you bored throughout the whole film? Can’t lie I hate it when reviewers start with “It looked great” as their opening positive. It’s a 2018 studio film, kinda unoriginal. You say there are loads of loose threads but don’t expand on what they are and just say that the director failed. Indulgent isn’t really the word to describe the film at all, can’t respect this review tbh.

  • David Williams

    Jeremy's one of those guys I can absolutely disagree with and still like the video. I loved this movie. I also get where he's coming from. From my P.O.V, I was entertained because it got me thinking, horrified by it when I thought about it too much, and I have every intention of seeing it again in theaters. It's one of my favorites so far this year. I will agree with Jeremy on this, though, that I fell in love with the concept more than I did with the characters and the story. I wish I'd loved them both equally.

    Couldn't agree more on this one. I usually love "deep concept movies" but this one just felt so hollow to me. It was completely void of any actual substance.
