The Beach (2000)

Three years after his star turn in Titanic, Leonardo DiCaprio returns to the silver screen in The Beach, a movie where it’s hard to tell what is real and what may be hallucinated. Leo’s descent into insanity marks the end of his teenage heartthrob roles. Once you get beyond the 2000-era fashion, the movie poses enough platitudes and questions to consider the possible metaphors under the madness.

Annihilation (2018)

We’ve just seen Annihilation, and boy are our minds blown.  Written and directed by Alex Garland and starring Natalie Portman, Oscar Isaacs, Tessa Thompson, and Jennifer Jason Leigh, it features a plot that it is alien, wondrous, unfathomable, and terrifying, with visuals to match.  It compares favorably to The Arrival, and is the kind of movie we wanted Alien: Covenant to be.  It’s just too bad that Paramount had so little faith in the film, in our eyes they had something special on their hands, and we feel sorry for the international audience that is going to see this for the first time on the small screen.  For everybody in the US, Canada, and China, go see this film!
