Transcendence (Blu-ray release 2014-7-22) tells the story of uploading a dying scientist’s consciousness to an artificial intelligence (AI) program, which becomes a threat to mankind.  In spite of the generally poor reviews, I like this idea, no matter how unreasonably miraculous the capabilities of the AI is.  I do have issues with cold blooded murderers suddenly becoming good guys, and the lack of much more government personnel involved in this global threat during the climax, and the ending of movie.  I think it could have been a much more satisfying movie.
