Movie Review: 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes'

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Starring Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Andy Serkis, Kerri Russell
Directed by Matt Reeves

Rated PG-13


 

The Planet of the Apes series carries a lot of weight.  Not only with science fiction fans but in pop culture as well.  It would be hard to count how many times the series has been referenced since the first film came out in 1968 (even this website used to have a rating system of damn dirty apes).  To say this series has had its influence is, well it's completely justified.  I could never get into the movies myself.  It’s not that I didn’t like them in some capacity; they just weren’t my cup of tea.  Tim Burton’s unfortunate reimagining back in 2001 did nothing for me (or for most people) and only served up the idea that this is a series best left to what has already been given to us.  Not taking that advice into consideration nor following in the footsteps of one Mr. Tim Burton, Rise of the Planet of the Apes unexpectedly gave us new hope that rebooting this series was in very capable hands.   And the people responded, favorably, setting up the opportunity to give the world Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

'Exodus: Gods & Kings' Trailer Brings On The Epic. And The Awkward Casting

First we get a critical and commercial success from Noah, now we're getting an movie based on Exodus. Personally I couldn't be happier, religious views (or lack thereof) be damned.  The biblical epic is a long neglected source of movie classics, and it's really good to see it finally get a revival.  We now have the first trailer for Exodus: Pointless and Clumsy Subtitle, so how is it?  It's good...for the most part.

Movie Review: 'Transformers: Age of Extinction'

Transformers: Age of Extinction

Starring Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer
Directed by Michael Bay
Rated PG-13


When did all the hate with Michael Bay start?  Was it always there from the beginning?  Pearl Harbor?  The first Transformers movie?  Somewhere along the way we all turned on the guy and it’s been ugly ever since.  Prior to seeing Transformers: Age of Extinction, I’d seen some of the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes and to say they were less than kind is a bit of an understatement.   But to put that in perspective, it’s not like the other films in the series garnered high praise either (though the first film did garner an ok rating).  So what happened?  When did we start treating the guy like he just committed the worst possible crime against humanity?  We’ve all done it, myself included, but the funny thing is I didn’t start out hating on Michael Bay, he just led me down that path.  Outside of last years Pain & Gain (which I liked), since 2007 Bay has worked on Transformers films.  Big, dumb, loud, stupid, these are all adjectives that have been used to describe these films.  But isn’t Bay really just giving us what we all want to see in a summer action movie?

Kevin Smith Visits 'Star Wars: Episode VII' Set And Posts Something Memorable

Kevin Smith's exact reputation is suffering quite a bit in the geek world, what with the eternal debacle that was Red State, from conception until release. That idiotic stunt in which he auctioned the distribution rights to himself at Sundance probably undid all of the good will that going forward with Clerks II gave him, to be totally honest.  Nonetheless, he still means enough to get a chance to visit the set of Star Wars: Episode VII, and he had one hell of a reaction.

First Full 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Trailer Does A Bang-Up Job at Existing

It's been a rocky road for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot, from the original alien origin that the entire internet despised to the pages of the leaked draft that the internet also despised, to the original teaser that (wait for it) the internet despised.  Me?  I actually thought that the first trailer was okay, if a little muddled.  Now we get a second one, and...well... you should just check it out for yourself after the jump.
