A month after its US release and on the heels of its international debut on Netflix, we finally get around to talking about Alex Garland's Annihilation, a sci-fi journey that is gorgeously strange, evocative, frustrating, and undeniably fascinating to talk about. This is a prerecorded episode we saved for a rainy day, so we hope you'll excuse the belated nature of this discussion (we'll be back next week with a more up-to-date episode!). For now, Annihilation is, warts and all, more than worthy of the full Weekly Stuff discussion treatment, and we hope you'll enjoy the review.
With Black Panther continuing its stunning box-office run and dominating pop culture conversations, we thought this might be a good week to look back at the 10-year history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that brought us to this point.
We look back at the first installment in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, "The Phantom Menace," examining it as a piece of filmmaking, its place in pop culture history, and what it tells us about the past, present, and future of cinema's biggest franchise.
