I really enjoyed the last Planet of the Apes this new one seems less dramatic and more summer action movie so i've been hesitating watching it... so far it sounds like that's exactly what it is a summer action film, michael bay-esque

^It's not quite that far, but there definitely is a lack of character development. It's to be expected since we already know the back-story of Caesar et al. That said, I would've liked a little bit more on the human backstory, but they seemed to conveniently tie it with a bow and present you with what's left.

It's still worth a watch if you liked the first movie. I rated it pretty much equal to the first, but as you suspected there's less character and more action.

Yeah the trailer looked retarded but trailers are usually retarded to attract Transformers type audiences.

If it keeps getting really good feedback I might check it out. Transformers was as bad as I expected (actually probably even worse, with the propaganda thrown in), but if I'm sceptical about a movie and it gets great feedback, I'll give it a chance.

Brick Mansions 7/10. Good action, catchy storyline. One of Paul Walkers last films before he passed away.

Planet of the Apes - 6.5/10 I was expecting more with the good reviews.
Brick Mansion - 3/10 Had to fast forward when I got about halfway through just to be able to finish, steaming piece of dogshit IMO.

Moonrise Kingdom - 7/10

Not quite what I was expecting (I had only seen TV ads years ago) but still enjoyed it surprisingly. A lot of it is VERY OBVIOUSLY Wes Anderson which kind of bugged me, but he clearly likes directing in a very similar way for his movies.

The new Planets of the Apes movie is fantastic. I'm not sure what you guys are talking about giving it 6.5/10. Both on rotten tomatoes and user reviews are over 91% average.

For me the movie was a little to predictable. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the movie and was glad I went to see it but certain parts of the movie I can see coming from a mile away.

The special effects in this movie are awesome. Some shots of the apes looked so real. I always thought cgi currently was a little behind as you can tell when things are "cgi" usually. But no this movie. However with that said, the movie seemed a bit too ape-y if that makes sense. Even though it's the planet of the apes movie

I hated transformers soo much. I lost my shit when halfway thru an action scene he awkwardly cracked and drank a beer just so they could show the label

Transcendence 6.5/10


Johnny Depps recent film that bombed, it was actually quite good, it felt a little dated though as it didn't have some modern tech used in there but I guess they didn't want it to seem too much like skynet/terminator. Which is understandable but it did give the impression that it was lacking and or tight on budget (which it wasn't. $100mill)

Like Groundhog Day, but with aliens and guns. Great action, even some clever humour.
