You keep repeating these same clips, With the woman farting, the slowed down laugh. It's so annoying. I like how your review is just "why did that happen? I don't understand what's happening on the screen! This is dumb!" You sound smart.Daniele Mulas6 ore faI desperatedly wanted to like this one. It had many good things, the setting, the mystery, the uneasy feel of cosmic horror. But instead it focuses too much on the melodrama of Padme Amidala and Poe Dameron's marriage, and the characters are way too bland to get invested in. Such a shame.aš justas18 ore fawhy does the setting sunds like discount 1979 stalkerChris Hanner21 ora faThat movie sucked.A CGiorno faYou have good and funny reviews.

The end. A 10 minute movie about a hunting party that comes across a science experiment gone wrong. The worst part was the decision to trick the alien into killing itself. Aliens, do not come to this planet, the humans will probably try to kill you even if you're nice.Fabian Feilcke3 giorni faI was very confued by the movie. It's almost like a concept or trailer for a series with 80% still missing. This might have worked as a mini series with a shitload of more lore around it.Kampfarsch3 giorni faThe real question is why there was a lighthouse in the middle fucking nowhere on some fieldCG3 giorni faI was intrigued by trailed but was disappointed in the movie, it felt too pretentious and way all over the place, it could have been great but fell short by a mile.Randomfools4 giorni faNot sure you understood the themes here and are sounding a lot like Cinemasins. You are talking about an area that combines the DNA of everything in it. Asking for rules is like the same thing as criticizing the concept of A Nightmare On Elm Street. Since this is science fiction, the possibilities are endless just like the dream world. Like how did the gator have shark DNA? A fish or plant that was where the shark was could have come into contact with it, swam upstream from the ocean and inhabited the area of the alligator. Why did the shimmer effect everyone differently? Probably due to the millions of organisms inside that were smashing into each other. Lena wasn't a clone at the end. Her DNA had just changed forever effecting the way she answered those questions. You can see this when the water glass droplets refract before the final scene. I think you were looking for something else with this. The theme of self destruction is present throughout the entire film.Nathan Kennedy4 giorni fai dont know how people pretend to like this film wtf was going on the whole way through😂Marcin Sadowski4 giorni fawhat it is about a glass of gin and tonic, that makes watching your videos so much better to watchChris Gander4 giorni faDrinker, it's an analogy for cancer. it's fucking brilliant.

A very bad adaptation. Of a very good story. Jurassic Park it isn’t. The concepts and ideas are all leeched from the books, but clearly in translating it into a screen it’s utter crap. It doesn’t even TRY to translate the story to the screen, it just throws all those elements onto the screen and hopes it duped enough people. If you want this story, but good, read the southern reach trilogy: en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_Reach_Trilogywtiiwarcraft6 giorni faThe only reason to watch most of this movie is up to the Bear Scene to get the full impact from it, that Bear f*cked up my sleep for many days, been a while since I've actually been mentally disturbed by something enough to actually effect merandy daudt7 giorni faBrie Larson should have been cast as the plank of wood.Kaaos Kaiser8 giorni faI think maybe the books might be good.Kaptein_kaos8 giorni faWish i found this before i found Annihilation on netflix.Tank539 giorni faLike the arrival this movie was stupidDmitry Paradny9 giorni faAndrey Tarkovsky - StalkerCalculated. What a save!9 giorni fa6:55 This point is the sole reason that I appreciated this movie. It's really just an okay premise and execution, but the fact that a team of women lead the film and for ONCE it is not at the expense of every man in the movie - WOW. When I saw this movie I thought to myself "this is actually a female-centric, or feminist film done respectably well for once." I was mainly comparing this with Ghostbusters 2016 in my own mind while viewing, and the two are polar opposites in how they approach the gender issue. One movie has characters of both genders who seem somewhat realistic as all of them are given a fair enough shake in their portrayal. The other movie has nothing but obnoxious unlikable cartoon characters played by both genders and there isn't a shred of dignity to be found anywhere in all of its 2 hour 14 min runtime. When I look at the scope of "feminist movies" I find Annihilation (again, a mediocre film in the grand scheme) remains in their upper echelon just because it doesn't go out of its way to push an agenda. It's sad that we've reached that point in what we call entertainment but there it is.Crow C9 giorni faEvent horizon 4ever!Darth Soldier9 giorni faThose people you described at the beginning are called hipsters... we avoid them like the plagueVulgarTrader9 giorni faI liked this movie a lot more when it was called Stalker.VulgarTrader9 giorni faThought this was about mortal kombat annihilation and was very confused for the first two minutes.Daniel10 giorni fa"what the fuck is even going on" sums up my thoughts throughout this entire film tbhWilson The Ball10 giorni faI hope you know you’re still excluding those who don’t identify as “persons”.Stacey Meikle10 giorni faI thought the movie was amazing, reminded me a lot of Under the Skin and Roadside Picnic as good quality sci-fiDoppe1ganger11 giorni faDude, Annihilation is one of the only true (horror) classics in the last decade. Between all of the modern garbage that you rightfully hate, i don't understand how you can't see how brilliant this movie is. What i think is that you think the movie is trying to make a point that it doesn't. It isn't trying to be smart, it's trying to be (believably) humane in a (visually and psychologically) fucked up setting, like all of the great classics (alien, the thing, the fly,...) Watch it again, and again, and don't try to understand it, let yourself be horrified by how fucked (in the best way possible) this movie is.Piotr Morgwai Kotarbinski11 giorni fait's one of the few times i don't agree with the Drinker: it's a mystery genre movie, so most of the "i don't know" were intended and not all questions were supposed to be answered. Critics often complain that movies these days explain every bit like intended audience is bunch of 6 year olds and when a movie that does not do it appears, they complain that it's too vague ;-] there are few details that could have been better explained/executed so that picky critics wouldn't vivisect them, but IMO these are just details (like why they didn't wear any masks: maybe they got samples from near the edge and decided it was safe: true, it should have been explained, but it's a detail) finally, i have no idea where the Drinker got the idea that characters in this movie were supposed to be deep and/or thought provoking: maybe from other critics? ;-] the only function of characters was to give us a journey through the mystery of the shimmer. it's like complaining that an off-road car doesn't have good aerodynamic profile ;-]lloydtxw12 giorni faThe entire movie is metaphor. If you’re taking it literally, it is you who is the idiot. In this case, subtext is text and concrete thinkers who insist on reading the events as literal are going to miss the point. They will call it pretentious or boring as does anyone who cannot derive meaning from a narrative beyond what’s in front of their eyes. If you think everything in the world does or should mean exactly what it does on the surface, you are quite shallow and doomed to live in a cave staring at a wall of human shadows imagining they are real people rather than a product of light casting darkness in human form against the cave wall while the real people are elsewhere. Look up metaphor as a narrative device and expand your infinitesimal perspective.Tony Paulazzo12 giorni faI loved the movie. I don't know if it was supposed to be intellectual, poetical or cancerous, I just know I was gripped throughout the entire movie. Not many films do that for me recently. I usually agree with your reviews but not this time. Plus, I love Alex Garland's 'The Tesseract (the book - not seen the film which I've just found is a thing). He has a unique vision on the world which Annihilation perfectly encapsulates...Peace Out!Fat Black12 giorni faWithout watching it, I'm getting a real "The Happening" vibe from this.Randomfools4 giorni faIt's nothing like The Happening. The idea is extremely intriguing. It's just not this action thriller that many thought it would be. Drinker missed a lot of the themes.DuGStp12 giorni faYou get a lot right drinker. And this movie got a lot wrong. Annoying characters. Telling not showing. Etc. but it feels like you missed the main sci-fi premise. The source of the shimmer (shitter) is evolution in reverse. The closer you get to it the more evolution reverses. It devolves everything into more simple organisms. Once you get to the center, it’s the birth of life in reverse, which would be annihilation. Portperson’s doppelgänger represents a cell at the molecular level, but human sized. All it can do is learn and mimic from where it split from. All of the “wouldn’t it be cool if” moments as you called them, are just set pieces to mess around with the underlying premise. Maybe this movie for its flaws just made you not want to try harder to understand it. It’s doesn’t all come together perfectly, and it’s a bit of a jumbled mess, but it’s not quite as dumb as you allege.Matthew Kuehne13 giorni faI have yet to watch this... and now I definitely won't! Unless I need drinking game material 😉Johann du Toit13 giorni faSay what you want about the movie as a whole, but it did give me lifelong arkoudaphobia.Thomas Jefferson13 giorni faI actually enjoyed the movie yeah it was a little pretentious times but I thought it was decent and the Gore was really good too. The ending was kind of goofy and predictable but that’s what happens when you’re smart grow older and watch a lot of movies.Optimus Prime13 giorni faLovecraft Country: There's no adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft adaptation as disgraceful as me! Annihilation: Hold my soy latte. Annihilation is just a bad retelling of Color out of Space, and thanks to Richard Stanley, nobody will remember this god awful movie in a few years.KeyboardWrecker14 giorni faThis movie has some good ideas visually but the science fiction elements and plot are inane.EXHALER Wolf14 giorni fathis video is like saying the game INSIDE by PLAYDEAD is a dumb puzzle platformer with some cool 'what-if' ideas thrown together to make it look like there's some deeper meaning behind it but it's actually pretty dumb. You can say that and move on, or you can remember to be fascinated by such mind bending concepts and enjoy it like we used to as kids.Ted Zeppelin14 giorni faThank for the hilarious review, and for saving me from wasting two hours.Legato Bluesummers15 giorni faI like The Critical Drinker and i like Annihilation. Not a perfect movie but a good one. It surprised me with the horror and since many of you already talked about the bear, I want to point another thing that rock me to my core, the music in the scene where Natalie meet the alien in that cave. I couldn't describe the feeling... Keep up the good work man.James Vani15 giorni faOne of them is chewed by a giant crocodile. Then walks it off. Fuck, nope.ThatsMrMoronToYou15 giorni faSpot on, ye git.Klynx2215 giorni faWhat sucks is that the novel is a masterwork of sci-fi horror written in the style of a Poe story.

The rest was pretty forgettable.Scott Schultz16 giorni faAgree totally with your view on the all-female team, but Natalie Portperson and Tessa Thompsoffspring can both smd.DiX Inc.16 giorni faThis movie has an interesting concept but it takes it's self waay too seriously and becomes so cryptic that's it's borderline stupid.

I need to watch movies several times to see how shitty they really are I think. Sometimes we see things, but there is nothing.Colin19 giorni faThis movie was fantastic, Alex Garland is one of the best sci-fi writer-directors working today. This movie was so far removed from the Hollywood bullshit you always complain about but you hate it because you’re blinded by your anti-SJW crusade. All the characters in the source novel were women, it’s an adaptation, chill.Kieren Ingold19 giorni fai remember watching this movie.

I want those 2 hrs back.87you87tube20 giorni faSeriously, for a split second I thought I was wrong thinking this movie was stupid because everyone was praising it. Then I realized that they are probably even dumber than the movie. The movie lost me at a very early scene when they just entered a dangerous territory with very poor preparation. I mean, when people see something potentially dangerous, jumping into it is definitely not the first move. You throw rocks at it, poke it with long sticks, then try with your hand or foot, then you stick your head in to take a look inside. I didn't see or hear this kind of approach. Instead, they just send people in and they never returned. Then they send more people in, probably not even with more and different equipment. It wouldn't need to be a mysterious alien forcefield to kill them. They would've still died if it's just some booby traps.Dr. Cool17 giorni faNoPamela Haskell20 giorni faPassed when I saw it was a bunch of chicks 🙄Daniel DeVito21 giorno faWhat sucks is that this movie really had potential, there were some EXTREMELY weird, eerie and interesting parts, but the majority was just extremely boring.McKillaboy21 giorno faYou like Event Horizon?
