Annihilation (2018) (Amazon Rental)
As the last item on this list, we take a look into the sci-fi world once again. In Annihilation, Natalie Portman portrays Lena, a scientist who leads a group of explorers into “The shimmer,” a mysterious quarantined zone that is filled with mutated plants and animals that were caused by an alien presence.
To me, it is a sin that this film was a box-office bomb. It had everything one of the best sci-fi movies would need. It had an amazing plot, out-of-this-world visuals, awesome acting, and a star-studded cast, with actors like Thor: Ragnarök’s Tessa Thompson, Star Wars’ Oscar Issac, and so many others, and Natalie Portman was perfect as Annihilation’s leading actress. While it’s a shame that it didn’t do well at the box office, at least now we can give it the praise it deserves by renting it. Seriously, if you love science-fiction and horror, Annihilation is perfect for you.
