Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes
Pete: Seldom is a sequel (or is this a prequel?) better than the original, or first in the series. Fortunately this is one of those rare cases. The film has a great balance of action and morality. I truly enjoy films that end up with me asking the question of what I would have done if put in the same situation. The commentary on politics, war, and the environment are brilliantly threaded throughout. I’d recommend this to all talking apes. I’d suggest downing a few of Short’s Brewing Company’s Good Humans Double Brown Ales whilst pondering the questions raised in this film.
Brigette: I think this has been the best Planet Of The Apes film yet. It was unexpectedly heartfelt and the only issue I had with it was that war couldn’t be avoided in the end.
