MALEFICENT: SPOILER ALERT!!

After about a 3 year hiatus from the movie industry, Angelina Jolie comes back with Maleficent, an incredible adaptation of the popular Snow White story but this time all focus was on the evil Queen. Have you ever wondered why villains are villains? Ever thought if villains at one point in time had an iota of goodness in them or what happened to them to become monsters? Personally, I do not care. Just let the hero win at the end of the day.

ABOUT TIME

A romantic comedy drama about a guy, Tim (Domhnall Gleeson) who finds out from his father on his 21st birthday that he can travel back in time. He tries to improve his future by changing his past with this ability. He gets married and starts a family. Later on, he loses an important person in his life which makes him realize that time travel can't solve every problem. He should learn to make mistakes and live each day as it comes because that's what life is all about.
Rachel McAdams plays Mary, Tim's love interest. She plays the role well and differently despite the fact that she's played a time traveller’s wife before. There was so much chemistry between Tim and Mary, it was like they had known each other their whole lives. Bill Nighy plays Tim's father. This role is so different from the roles we usually see him in such as the Underworld series and Pirates of the Carribbean. He was so playful and friendly and I had fun watching him act.
There were also some Harry …
