Disney goes to the dark side


We were going to recommend this movie to enjoy it with the family but we are starting to think that the Disney movies are no longer for children, with the evil characters taking control of the main roles. This is the plot:

A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal – an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces a battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom – and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.

They say this is one of  Angelina Jolie‘s best performances, but if you, like us, prefer to have share your own opinion after watching her work, you can go to see Maleficent in the IMC or in the Eye cinema, in 2D or 3D. We would recommend the 3D as when something has been filmed for this technology it contains scenes and images that lose their charm when watching as 2D.
You can consult the times here for IMC and here for Eye Cinema.

The story of Yonosuke

This is the last movie of this year’s Japanese Film Festival that we can watch in the Eye cinema today, Thursday 10th of April at 7 pm

It is based on the novel by Shuichi Yoshida (Villain)

Yonosuke takes pleasure in life’s simplest things and his positivity touches and alters everyone around him, from his college friends to his work colleagues in later life. Through the recounting of the friends’ experiences of Yonosuke, we start to build-up his story, his character, piecing everything together about him and where he is today.

Without a doubt a ‘dream-team’ of creative talent, director Okita, author Shuichi Yoshida (Villain), screenwriter Shiro Maeda (Isn’t Anyone Alive?) and rising star Kengo Kora (Fish Story), come together to make a film that you’ll want to watch over and over again. – Hawaii Film Festival 2013

We’re the Millers (If anyone asks)

Do you know when you finish a movie and you start forgetting everything about it?
That’s exactly the feeling I had when the credits appeared on the screen, I think this is one of the most predictable pictures I’ve seen in a long while. The story could be cool, a drug dealer and his neighbor, a stripper, pretend to be a family, and with the help of two youngsters they try to introduce more drugs in the United States.

As I said, it could be a nice movie, but it is pretty basic, the trip to Mexico takes less than 5 minutes, so no road movie at all, the jokes at the border are childish and the resolution of the movie doesn’t let the characters to explain their motivations for the final decision. The secondary characters are so plain, the bad boy for the date of the girl, the annoying people in the other vehicle who have to help the Millers, the Mexican policeman…

Of course, it is good enough for some popcorn and soda with the family in a rainy day, and the young Emma Roberts does quite well in the role of a misled girl, searching for some roots and role models.

As always, this is just an opinion, if you love the movie, don’t hesitate to tell us and share your comments here or in our Facebook page.
