Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

I love the science fiction movies, but this is not a good one. The FX of this sequel are brilliant, even better than the first part's, but a lot of details of the story are almost ridiculous and sometimes I felt almost yawning waiting the end of some of the looooong fights between the robots. It's not a very very interesting movie even for geeks.

My score: 5 (out of 10)

I had to see this movie, because for me Henry Selick is one of the genius of the animation since I saw the master piece "Nightmare before Christmas" (that I absolutely love!), and I really enjoyed this movie. The story is really less adult that Nightmare, but the film is brilliant. The environment, the characters, the surrealistic details, the animation, most of the factors are great. And the 3D format of the movie is very well integrated in the story. It doesn't distract you from the story, but it's a fantastic tool to enter and enjoy the film. Very recommendable (especially in 3D).

My score: 9 (out of 10)

Terminator Salvation

I was waiting for this movie since long time ago, and the result (as usual) is not as good as I wished, but anyway the it's a good science fiction film. The fx are really cool, although the story is very far away from the original stories of the Terminator Saga (especially from T1 y T2, of course). Christian Bale is a very credible John Connor, but I sincerely was waiting for a much more dehumanized fight between humans and machines (regarding the first movies), but this movie shows bigger and cooler machines although quite stupid!... Not like the cold and cruel assassins robots and droids with relentless mind of a "computer chess game" that could be reasonable and coherent with the original movies of Cameron. The machines of "The Matrix" are much more efficient in this task I think ;) Anyway, it's a good movie, especially to be seen in a good theater with THX and HD digital video projection.

My score: 7 (out of 10)
