Recent movies I have seen: Maleficent & Transcendece (2014) by Belén Delgado

" Maleficent" 2014 - I have to admit that I was a bit reluctant to watch it. I'm not a big fan of Angeline Jolie.. and I thought that what could be added to the story of the Sleeping beauty?. Well, I actually loved this film from the beginning to the end and I was totally wrong about it. It's one of these movies that you have to see in the big screen due to the special effects to get more involved in the story. It's definitely a very original version of one of the fairy tales classics: The Sleeping beauty. Angeline plays a superb role. The only piece of criticism that I have is that the king could have been a bit more handsome (lol) but apart from that: Class! Top class! In a scale from 1 to 10, definitely a 10!!! I would watch it again!! Watching this film reminded me when I was a kid and I always wanted to be able to fly like a bird!



 " Transcendence" 2014 - A futuristic movie about the power of intelligent minds to be integrated into computers to create automats without feelings who could be able to take over the world. In a way it reminded me a bit of the movie "Her". It started well and i could relate to the plot and its originality but then at some point I started to find it a bit too long and I stopped enjoying it that much. There is no doubt however about the excellent role played by Johnny Depp, he never plays an conventional role, so no surprises there.  In a scale from 1 to 10 I give it a 6.5.
