Description

Maleficent is Disney's 2014 retelling of their classic animated tale—with a twist. In this revisionist fairytale, Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) lives an idyllic life in the forest before the human she has fallen in love with betrays her in exchange for a kingdom, cutting off and stealing her wings. As revenge, Maleficent curses the new king's baby daughter, Aurora (Elle Fanning) to prick her finger on a spindle and fall into a death-like sleep on reaching adulthood, only to be woken by true love's kiss. Little does Maleficent realize that Aurora will be nothing like her father, and may be the only hope of restoring peace to their fractured land—and to Maleficent's heart. The film received mixed to positive reviews, with reviewers praising the performance of the two lead actresses as well as the emotional richness in the storytelling.

Cloud Atlas

2012
Sci-Fi & Fantasy
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".
Thor: The Dark World

Thor: The Dark World

2013
Sci-Fi & Fantasy
It's a third appearance of Chris Hemsworth as mighty Thor after Kenneth Branagh's Thor filmed in 2011 and Joss Whedon's The Avengers filmed in 2012. The story of Alan Taylor's Thor: The Dark World is a direct sequel of the first movie and it takes place just year after the events of The Avengers. Now Thor stands against the ancient evil embodied in Malekith and his henchmen. This concentrated evil existed even before the history of our Galaxy has began. And there are no forces neither in Asgard nor on Earth to withstand them. Once again the destiny of the whole world is in Thor's hands. Once again he has to come back to Earth and fight with Malekith. When he meets his passion, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), his quest becomes more complicated – to rescue his love interest and save both Earth and Asgard. As for ensemble cast it's quite clear that previous movies successes inspired producers to inflate the budget significantly, besides the actors which were starring in the first movie Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgard, Ray Stevenson, Idris Elba, Kat Dennings, Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins there some new Hollywood stars: Christopher Eccleston (Doctor Who, Heroes, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (The Thing, Killer Elite, Faster), Zachary Levi (Stuntmen, Shades of Ray), and Tadanobu Asano (Battleship, 47 Ronin).
