Annihilation ★★★★½

You watched it again?
Isn’t that a waste of money?

No, mother.
No, mister Uber driver.
No, colleague I secretly loathe.

There’s no price for the euphoria of knowing when a film will knock the air out of an audience; or trying to hold back a smile, however terrifying or devastating a scene may be, after hearing an involuntary oh my god escape the person behind you. 

If you find a film that makes you go “I need to take a friend to see this” - and you mean it, so you do - and your heart still tries to burst out of your chest after multiple viewings...

...then no, it’s never a waste of money.
