Annihilation - trailer

3 posts in this topic

Looks like aliens are terraforming the planet and making monsters at the same time, which is a combination of awesome to me.

Now for a brief rant.. The tv commercials were better than this trailer. In the commercials it looks like she is the pro going in to figure out wtf is going on, but in the trailer she's only going in to save her husband because Hollywood still doesn't think a female character can actually have professional motivation to do shit on their own without attaching a man to the woman's goals.

It will hopefully be better than General Zod's plot from Man Of Steel.

Gender swapped Mario? Which is basically Super Princess Peach. I'm not trying to defend what they did. If anything they already had a good plot. Then someone demanded the ability to ship characters for the sake of shipping characters.

I saw this movie today instead of Friday because I thought that the only movie coming out this month was Black Panther. And overall the cast reminded me of the 2005 movie The Descent.

Anyway the bad

  1. Spoilers / Not Spoilers, Annihilation starts with letting you know that the whole movie is going to be a flashback so don't be surprised that you know that a lot of people just didn't come back. And on top of this there are then flashbacks within those flashbacks.
  2. The beginning of this movie is extremely boring.

The Good

  1. If it weren't for the maybe these are aliens plot, the plot could have been easily about the discovery of The T-Virus from Resident Evil.
  2. One of the characters is named in a way that reminds me of Mass Effect.
  3. Everything that is great about this movie takes place at The Lighthouse. One of those moments reminding me of Spec Ops: The Line.
  4. The monsters look gross, but never in that way where they remind you of Burt Reynolds from Striptease.

      The Disney princess part at the end is great. I loved the first movie.

      I'm glad Wasp will finally get some screen time, Marvel needs more strong females in their movies.

      It looks promising and a couple of the scenes look like they were taken right out of the game. Alicia Vikander looks like Lara Croft in that outfit, but shes a very small woman (height and muscle) in comparison to Lara Croft in the video game. I hope her physical performance is believable considering how many men she'll have to kill. To hell with the double guns tho. I'd rather see her using only the bow and climbing axe the entire movie.. and maybe an assault rifle. lol.

      I was under the impression that these movies have been getting filmed for about 3-4 years already.. and they'd start releasing a new Avatar movie once a year. But they're still casting roles!? Wow. At this rate I won't even expect Avatar 2 to come out in 2020. Also, I haven't seen this actor in much besides Fear the Walking Dead. While hes probably the best actor in that show (thats not saying much honestly), I don't see him doing well as a lead in a major movie franchise like this.
