It’s Episode 72! Beyond the Boxset’s Harry and John return for Harry’s choice the 2018 science fiction fantasy from genius Alex Garland, Annihilation. Annihilation was not intended to be a straight to Netflix release and this is evident is the vast cinema landscape the film inhabitants but it’s is cinemas loss and Netflix’s gain. Rare for a science fiction film the main ensemble is all female, Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson and Tuva Novotn (Oscar Issac and Benedict Wong are minor characters) are on a part rescue, part exploration and part suicide mission into a mysterious shimmer with freaky bears and crazy DNA. Ex Machina part 2 this is not and it largely divided critics and audiences equally on its release - this is not your conventional film.
[supsystic-tables id='74'] Annihilation scores particularly high on recommendability but lower on the small screen score (not surprising) and overall a very respectable 4.04. What do you guys think? Have you seen Annihilation? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!
