Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is the conclusion to the recent trilogy of Star Wars movies. It follows Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), and Poe (Oscar Issac) as they are faced with the return of Emperor Palpatine.
Annihilation is a sci-fi movie surrounding Lena (Natalie Portman) whose husband, Kane (Oscar Isaac), has gone on a secret mission to what is called “The Shimmer” and is the only person to have ever returned but is not well. Lena then decides to go to The Shimmer in order to find out what has happened to her husband.
I knew pretty much nothing about this film, I didn’t watch any trailers and only vaguely knew of the concept, which intrigued me, and I think that us film lovers may actually enjoy movies more if we go in blind. Let me start out by saying that the visuals in this film are stunning, especially everything that happened in The Shimmer. The production designer really deserves a lot of the credit here. It was both beautiful and creepy to see what lied behind The Shimmer and there are plenty of horror elements in the film.
