Dawn of the Planet of the Apes 8.5/10

Very good and one of the best of the summer. A notch below Rise IMO (9/10), because I appreciated seeing the growth of Caesar in the 1st. The 2nd is more action packed and it was cool having about 5 significant characters that you could see coming from different perspectives, all with motivations that made sense, but not as much character development.

The 13% on RT is unwarranted

It's not the greatest movie, Keano Reeves is awful, but this movie does have its moments imo

It's got good visuals too.

It wasn't terrible. I would of given it a 6, but that meant it met my standards. If you were to disect the entire movie I think 4 would be good. It's watchable to me I seen it with family. Definitely one of those movies you could put it on and kill 2 hours.

DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES- 9/10

For a big summer blockbuster that can't stray too too far from what was expected, this movie hit all the right notes.

It looks awesome visually, has characters you are invested in and care about, includes some subtext and sentimentality & dances that line well with having some badass action go down.

I gotta dip or else I would write a more thorough review but I'm sure more ppl will see this soon and I can comment on their thoughts

Just watch this shit. If you didn't care for the first or never saw it, if you have time, watch that shit and get right on this. That's all I can say.

Tammy - 5.5/10

Not as horrendous as the reviews say...but damn that was pretty bad. there were a few good laughs...but the storyline was terrible and it was too damn corny.

Why even watch it? From pure curiosity or dragged?

The Man in the Moon


Only reason I even watched this was because I thought it was that Jim Carrey movie. I'm glad I didn't change the channel when I realized it was something else though, because this turned out to be a pretty good flick. Reese Witherspoon's first movie, and she did a really good job. Her naivety combined with her youthful exuberance made her really cute(no pedo). She falls for an older guy, but her older sister tw@t-blocks her by falling for him to.

The chemistry between Witherspoon and the guy was very good, but the relationship between the guy and the older sister felt a little forced/rushed. It's a good coming-of-age movie; reminded me of This Boy's Life with a young DiCaprio despite the stories and tone largely being different.

8.3/10

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes - 9/10

With emotional intelligence and impressive cinematography to match, this movie drags you into the story line effectively, learning and interpreting this new world that the film gives you. Caesar was a very impressive, multi layered character who you can easily empathize with during the movie. Other ape characters like Koba and Maurice do their respective parts well too.

I thought the main flaw were the human characters. There was a noticeable lack of depth with almost all of them. But overall, i'd say this was a powerful and very memorable movie.

Epic movie - that movie was so bad I can't even rate it. 0 / 10 I guess.

Didin't even watch it till the end, one of the friends recommended this movie and he was the only one laughing the whole time. Then he saw 3 of the friends were sleeping and he said he has to go and he shut down the tv lol.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

9.5/10

Up there with one of the greatest movies i've ever seen

I hated the old old ones...

thought the first one was decent but overhyped....

But this....from the first few minutes it sucked you in. The whole setting IMO is so much better than the first. Its that transitional period of Ape society which to me set it apart from the first on a completely different level...even if there were a sequel i don't know if the setting and plot could be as good as this one since it would probably just be more a straight up war, but not the societal build up...

my only slight complaint is the movie felt long. I respect long but it gets to that point where you're thinking is this going to end?....but in its defense it kept you in it with a climactic ending so it made up for the elongated feeling i felt.

one other slight complaint is some people act dumb, and that annoys me....but really what movie doesn't have some idiots who generally help make some plot go?

I didn't expect it to be this good. I wish i could say more but i'd be spoiling.

MUST SEE MOVIE!!!1
