Five Sci-Fi movies worth a look in june 2014.

Transformers: Age of Extinction

But rather than play it safe and continue with the original trilogy’s storylines, director Michael Bay has decided to craft a new saga for the robots in disguise, one that sees the Transformers living in a time where their presence is detested. As you might expect, a new robotic threat forces Optimus and his crew out of hiding, and they find themselves teaming up with Mark Wahlberg’s character to once again save the planet.

While a new cast of Autobots and Decepticons should have fans excited, it is the first onscreen appearance of the Dinobots that has been garnering the most attention. It’s taken four movies for Bay to get there, but he is finally ready to deliver what the fans want. If the shots of Optimus riding Grimlock are any indication, Age of Extinction could very well be a fanboy’s dream brought to life.

How to Train Your Dragon 2

The first How to Train Your Dragon was, simply put, one of the best animated films to release in the last decade. It’s sweeping score, beautiful cinematography, and grounded story went way beyond what we expect from the genre and established a new tone for non-Pixar films moving forward. Unfortunately, the film fell short of winning the Best Animated film Oscar, despite many feeling it was the most deserving.

But, with no Pixar film to be found this year, How to Train Your Dragon 2 has a clear path to the podium, and should take home the gold if this sequel is even half as good as its predecessor. Of course, we’re just as eager to see the continued adventures of Hiccup and Toothless as the two delve deeper into dragon mythology. If you’re looking for the family-friendly hit of the summer, How to Train Your Dragon 2 looks to fit the bill nicely. And it should make big money at the box office.

Edge of Tomorrow

If there’s one truly bankable star left working in the business it’s Tom Cruise. While he may not always strike it big at the domestic box office, Cruise continues to kill it overseas. With that in mind, we expect big things from Edge of Tomorrow, Cruise’s first big-budget summer blockbuster in almost 5 years.

Boasting an intriguing, Groundhog Day-esque conceit, a talented director, and a strong female lead, Edge of Tomorrow has all the makings of another Tom Cruise hit. Sure, there are elements that feel borrowed from other movies (and even video games), but with Cruise in the driver’s seat it’s hard not be at least a tiny bit excited. Not to mention early reviews for the film peg it as perfect action movie fodder.


Maleficent

In Maleficent, we are given new insight into the fairy tale of “Sleeping Beauty” – a story that has apparently been improperly told throughout the ages. We learn the backstory of Maleficent, the evil sorceress of the classic tale, here revealed to be a young and powerful fairy tasked with guarding the enchanted woods. Young Maleficent lets her love of a young farmer’s son distract her heart; but as they come of age, the angel-winged fairy and the boy are pulled apart by obligations to their respective worlds of magic and courtly politics. Then one night, during a seemingly happy reunion, the boy betrays his lady-love in exchange for securing himself a crown.

In the end, Maleficent is yet another old Disney product re-packaged with a big-name star and visionary director, in order to sell a “modern” fairy tale to audiences. Reading other reviews, 3D in the movie is not that great, so it would be wise to wait fora an IMAX edition to come into Croatian cinemas, which is on 12.6.


X-Men : Days of Future Past

X-Men: Days of Future Past is by far the most ambitious film in the franchise – an attempt to take the entire six-film saga (and all of the notorious continuity errors that come with it) and soft-reboot it via a story that is both character drama and spectacle, meant to honor both the Original Trilogy and First Class halves of the franchise. Against all odds, Singer manages to deliver all of the above, resulting in the best X-Men movie to date, and a comic book movie that could (arguably) be placed in the company of the genre’s elite.

In the end, X-Men: Days of Future Past succeeds at being a thrilling and fun superhero movie, balanced by well-earned dramatic weight. It may only be three-quarters successful in forging the fractured franchise into a unified whole, but it does manage to distill the best parts of the saga and use them to push things forward into a (semi-)fresh start, where fans can forget sins of the past and once again feel optimistic about the notion of X-Men movies.

…And according to the implications of the post-credits scene, there is hint that the future of this franchise is going to continue to be a bigger, bolder, and ultimately more exciting one.

Conclusion
Whatever movie you decide to watch, we believe you won’t be disappointed. The sole purpose of going to cinema is to go with low expectations, which ultimatly leads to greater fun. All and all, whatever you decide, have on mind that Fantastic Zagreb starts on 27.7.2014., and we all know that we don’t won’t to miss that.
