annihilation-pic1

I love Ex Machina (enough to name it my favorite film of 2015), but holy hell is director Alex Garland‘s follow-up project a clusterfuck. Based on the novel of the same name by Jeff VanderMeer, Annihilation focuses on a biologist and former soldier (Natalie Portman) who chooses to journey into a rainbow-curtain rift (referred to as a shimmer) with four other female scientists (Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tuva Novotny, and Tessa Thompson) in hopes of understanding what is happening inside and what the anomaly did to her husband (Oscar Isaac) who was the only soldier sent from any of the previous expeditions to make it out alive.

altered-carbon-force-of-evil-2

The fourth episode of Altered Carbon puts the murder investigation on hold, where it will continue to simmer as only a minor priority for the rest of the season. Captured at the end of the last episode, “Force of Evil” features Takeshi Kovacs (Joel Kinnaman) being forcibly tortured by Dimi (Michael Eklund) who has mistakenly taken him for the person who used to walk around in his new body. In order to withstand the torture, Kovacs thinks back on his training as an envoy which begins to fill in the character’s backstory a bit more and help explain why he’s such a bad ass to be reckoned with. As in his training, eventually our protagnoist will gain control of the simulation and take advantage of his captors leaving several dead bodies in his wake once he makes it back to the real world. Dimi will stick around and be a minor thorn in our character’s side until the true antagonist of the series is revealed.

supergirl-2016-18-villain-origin

Picking up directly following the last issue, Supergirl #18 features the DEO unleashing a xenophobic alien on a high school dance in hopes of taking out the Girl of Steel. Our villain of the moment, an alien from a world destroyed by its exposure to extraterrestrial life, brings plenty of personal grief to the fight while believing removing Supergirl is ultimately the best thing for the Earth. When she discovers that Kara isn’t looking to change Earth, but that her adopted home and its people have changed Supergirl’s view of life, out antagonist loses the will to continue the conflict any further.

legends-of-tomorrow-here-i-go-again

The latest episode of Legends of Tomorrow sticks Zari (Tala Ashe) in a “Hedgehog Day” time-loop as an unfortunate side-effect to her tampering with the ship. While not as clever as Dark Matter‘s “All the Time on the World,” the show’s writers have fun with the concept which allows a frustrated Zari to get to know her crewmates (who are stuck in ridiculous ABBA costumes for most of the episode) better as she fails to save them each time before the Waverider explodes and time resets once again. The actual explanation of her predicament also allows for Gideon (Amy Louise Pemberton) to take physical form.
