Have you not see Annihilation yet?
Why not? You really should go check it out while you have a chance to see it in the theatre. I’m warning you now, it’s a bit of a slow movie, but it’s some awesome hard sci-fi that we don’t get often in theaters. Here’s the thing, I don’t really want to say too much more, so I’ll just leave you with the description below. If you enjoyed Ex Machina, and The Fountain, you should give Annihilation a chance.
Still unsure, check out a snippet from The Geek Vs podcast above where we’ll give you some idea of what you’re getting into without spoiling it, but it’s safe to say, we all loved it!
Annihilation is a 2018 science fiction horror film written and directed by Alex Garland, based on the novel of the same name by Jeff VanderMeer. The film stars Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny, and Oscar Isaac, and follows a group of military scientists who enter “The Shimmer”, a mysterious quarantined zone full of mutating landscapes and creatures.
About the Geek vs podcast
Things are about to get weird when Tony, Casey, and Betty get together weekly to provide a “nerd’s eye view of pop culture.” These only children geeks have somehow managed not to kill each other, as they do battle with movies, television, and all things pop culture. If you like podcasts similar to “Nerdist” and “ID10T”, more diverse than “2 Dope Queens”, and completely opposite of “My Brother, My Brother, and Me,” you should check out “Geek Vs.”
