Cloud Atlas

Description

A tremendously successful book Cloud Atlas, which was written by British author David Mitchell in 2004, is laid in the basement of next brothers Wachowsky's movie Cloud Atlas. Of course, no one has expected that Matrix's creators will film something small, but it seems like Cloud Atlas outperformed any possible expectation. The film is so advanced in the meaning of CGI graphics and complicity of the twisted plot that it's undoubtedly destined to become another milestone in cinema industry alongside with The Matrix and Avatar. The movie consists of six stories nailed on each other in some weird way. All of the showcased stories are suddenly interrupting at some point except the last one. The first story begins in 1850 on a frigate sailing across the Pacific Ocean; this story is read by the character of the next story as a diary in 1931 which story is read in letters by Luisa Rey a journalist California, 1975 who writes a manuscript for the novel which is read by Timothy Cavendish, in 21th century UK which story was laid in the center of documentary movie which is watched by Sonmi~451, a genetically-engineered clone in not so distant future who rises a rebellion against totalitarian regime which is lead to "The Fall", an apocalypses which destroys a civilization and forms a tribal societies on Earth. One of the tribesman watches a Sonmi~451's story as holographic movie on his "Orison" device. All the six stories which are nested in the film look like seamlessly connected with each other in the way we did not realize until the movie reaches its turning point, and then we travel back in time from story to story completing them in reverse order and realizing that "Everything is connected".

Sci-Fi & Fantasy
Directed by M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Signs, The Last Airbender) filmed by Columbia Pictures in 2012 this movie hits the screens in 2013. After Earth follows an exciting story written by Gary Whitta about a father and a son survived a starship crash on a distant inhabited planet. Cypher Raige is a recognized hero of many wars, a legendary general who heads his spacecraft to the distant realms, convoying recently captured fierce alien creature. He travels with his son, Kitai Raige, inexperienced 13-years-old boy who gets his initial knowledge about space voyages. Unfortunately, a technical malfunction triggers a chain of events that lead to emergency landing on hostile planet. The only hope for deathly injured father and his son is to find and activate SOS beacon before Cypher Raige dies. Bad news: their radars indicate that the beacon is located on the other side of the planet and ocean of impassable jungles infested with bloodthirsty animals and furious alien that escaped the spaceship during the crash are the only obstacle between 13-years old Kitai and the hope to save their lives. Seriously wounded Cypher can't move, but he tries to help his son to overcome the fear by couching him distantly. The only thing is left at his disposal is to convince Kitai, that in contradistinction to dreadful monsters his fear is not real. That means that Kitai has to forget the fear and concentrate on the real dangers: ravenous creatures and virulent environment of the hostile planet. By the way it's Earth. Yes, it's our home planet that was abandoned by humans almost 1000 years ago due to the catastrophic event that wiped out majority of the species. Since that time new kinds of giant animal took the place of extincted ones and now they dominate the Earth. It's strange and suspicious that we know so much about the movie's story, taking in consideration that After Earth was directed by M. Night Shyamalan, so you have to expect some unpredictable plot twists. Another fact to enjoy is the ensemble cast: there are two leading characters - the father and the son, and they are the real father and son Will and Jaden Smith. Yes, this is the Will Smith (Men in Black franchise, Wild Wild West and I, Legend) and his son Jaden Smith (The Karate Kid, The Day the Earth Stood Still).
